This Friday night, Fleetmac Wood’s DJ night playing exclusively remixes, edits and originals of Fleetwood Mac’s music returns to The Sugar Club after last year’s sold-out show.
The idea started in London in 2012 and has spread around the world to Burning Man and Glastonbury. Don’t expect a greatest hits set, this is a night for hardcore Mac fans.
As they say themselves:
If you’re not sure you like Fleetwood Mac, please don’t come. No really, don’t come. And don’t drag along your friend who doesn’t really like them either. This is an unadulterated, tunnel-visioned event, paying homage to the incredible musical journey that is Fleetwood Mac.
Tickets are available for Friday’s event but in the meantime, Fleetmac Wood shared their top 5 Mac remixes with us in anticipation.
1. ‘The Chain’ (Antenna Happy Acid Pit Stop mix)
That killer bass line gets dipped in acid by UK producer Antenna Happy and is always a heady moment at our parties.
2. ‘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…
3. ‘Never Going Back’ (Cosmic Kids Edit)
Slow and full to the brim with layered Buckingham acoustic guitar, this is an unexpected hit on the dance floor that gets everyone stomping and flinging their arms in the air.
4. ‘Edge of Seventeen’ – The Starkiller’s Seventeen Lightyears Remix
Slow and brooding with an epic build. Who knew it was possible to add even more drama to a Stevie Nicks song?
5. ‘You Make Loving Fun’ – Trail Mix
Deep and cosmic, this version of Christine McVie’s Rumours classic gets sexier every time we play it.
