Fleetwood Mac – “Dreams (Psychemagik Remix)”

September 4

Ah, it’s a dreary post-summer Tuesday here in Brooklyn and what better way to enjoy the grey-day vibe than listen to Stevie Nicks and her gorgeous, smokey exhalations…”Thunder only happens when it’s raining”…indeed. This brand new remix by British production & DJ duo Psychemagik is their second rework of a Fleetwood Mac classic- check out their take on the Christine McVie fronted “Everywhere”– and it’s just as compelling. Psychemagik let the intro stretch out and linger for over three minutes, indulging us in a perfect pairing of the original song’s airy guitar work with some updated bass and drum punch, til Stevie’s voice breezes in and takes into the tune we all know and love so well.

This track is available as a free download through Psychemagik’s Facebook page. Just give ‘em a like and you’ll be golden.

Dutch producers Kraak & Smaak first blipped on my DJ radar last year when they dropped a boogie-funk edit of their single “Dynamite” (intoning the synth & rubber groove of the genre’s forefathers, Zapp & Roger), which was perfect for taking parties from that early-first-or-second-drink vibe to the let’s-turn-this-place-into-a-sweatbox-frenzy peak-hour set. Now they’re back with a new track, “Built for Love,” featuring Romanthony on the mic (the voice on Daft Punk’s “One More Time”), which has a nice, nighttime, cool-breeze sound to it, but I’m putting my cash on this Psychemagik remix. The UK duo forfeits the open-air approach of the original for a production packed tight with sound, heavy with a 4/4 disco-house pulse. I bet it can take an open-air dance floor and pack it tight with bodies, too.

Psychemagik’s remix of “Built For Love,” as well as the original single and remixes by Roach Motel, are available as an EP on Beatport.
