Fleetmac Wood takes one of the greatest rock ‘n’ roll bands to the dance floor. Closer to a rave than a tribute act, this DJ duo plays disco, house and techno remixes of Fleetwood Mac and solo tracks. This tunnel-visioned concept has attracted wild-hearted music fans to celebrate their Big Love for Fleetwood Mac at clubs and festivals all over the world.
Kicking off the project in 2012 in London, Fleetmac Wood has created hours of exclusive remixes that it will bring to the Crescent Ballroom on Saturday, May 13. We asked them to choose five of their favorite tracks that they play at their parties.
- “The Chain” (Antenna Happy Acid Pit Stop mix)
That killer bass line gets dipped in acid by U.K. producer Antenna Happy and is always a heady moment at our parties.
- “Dreams” (Psychemagik Remix)
Premiered at our first party in London in 2012, this delicate reworking exemplifies what we love about remixes done well. Stevie astral travels to a disco in an alternate universe and hugs the bass bin. Cosmic crystal visions ensue…
- “Silver Springs” (Roxanne Roll Rework)
A new one from us that is going down well at our Rumours Rave. Silver Springs famously never made the original vinyl and became a B side to Go Your Own Way. It’s one of our favorite Mac tracks, so we really wanted to keep the ethereal feel of the song intact whilst adding length and dance floor punctuation.
- “Gypsy” (Twin Sun Edit)
“Gypsy” is the perfect pop song and Twin Sun managed to add even more twinkly, disco dust with this edit. The build up really works to create that goose-bump moment with Stevie’s vocals.
- “Tusk” (Smooth Sailing Edit)
“Tusk” really is a real tribal stomp of a track and we wanted to accentuate the feelings of people power and wild energy by adding a crazed, drum breakdown. See if you can pick where the extra drums came from? We really hope this makes Mick Fleetwood giggle if he ever hears it.
