Roxanne Roll is the founder of Fleetmac Wood, a DJ collective dedicated to throwing parties based on remixes of Fleetwood Mac songs. Here, she tells us about her five favorite reimaginings.
"The Chain" (Antenna Happy Acid Pit Stop mix)
That killer bassline 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.
"Never Going Back Again" (Cosmic Kids edit)
Slow and full to the brim with layered Lindsey Buckingham acoustic guitar, this is an unexpected hit on the dance floor that gets everyone stomping and flinging their arms in the air.
"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?
"You Make Loving Fun" (Trail mix)
Deep and cosmic, this version of Christine McVie's Rumours classic gets sexier every time we play it.
