The only thing wrong with the original release of Rumours was that there wasn't enough space to fit Silver Springs on it. Relegated to the B side of Go Your Own Way, this beautiful song didn't quite get its moment in the sun, which caused some friction within the band (like they needed more).
This edit was created to celebrate the 40th birthday of Rumours and to bring a track that means so much to fans and myself - to the dance floor. The original can't be bettered, but I enjoyed adding some cosmic disco elements and extensions. I played it for the first time at Public Works San Francisco at our Fleetmac Wood Rumours Rave (on the official anniversary date of the album's release). The response was great from the crowd, which meant a lot as its a daunting task to edit a track you love so much.
The recent Rumours Deluxe re-release now includes Silver Springs. So all is right in the world and as it should be.
There's something a little other-worldly about Stevie Nicks' original piano demo recording of Rhiannon. Perhaps she was taken over by the ancient Celtic spirit and lured to her piano. www.soundcloud.com/roxanneroll dramatises this possession for this www.soundcloud.com/fleetmacwood edit. Combining the original demo, the stems of the album version and added synth lines, she takes us to an outer disco realm, where the messages of the white witch reverberates and calls out to the the darkness.
Using the(08/30/78)version of Storms from the new Super Deluxe Edition of Tusk (Disco 2 of Singles, Outtakes and Sessions)from Fleetwood Mac, I enjoyed adding some drama to this beautiful song written by Stevie Nicks. Stream only, but you can hear it loud at our @fleetmacwood parties and on our Vol 5 compilation https://soundcloud.com/fleetmacwood/fleetmac-wood-vol-5
To celebrate this the Classic West Concert at Dodger Stadium this weekend featuring The Eagles and Fleetwood Mac here's my remix of Leather and Lace.

Happy 75th Birthday to the shining spark that is Joni Mitchell. This remix of 'Woodstock' is dedicated to The Secret Garden Party (UK) for giving us the most beautiful garden to play in over the years.
I was lucky to play this remix at Mistress Mary and Burning Man this year and Joni's lyrics communicate the magic that I feel when we gather together for all the right reasons.
A quote from Joni Mitchell about the song:
“When I wrote ‘Woodstock,’ two or three times that I first performed it, I had to stop before I would get so caught up in emotion. I guess it was because I didn’t go to Woodstock but I watched it on television and it seemed like an amazing thing to me that under the circumstances, that many people helped each other out, they delivered babies in the wild, they shared their food. There was so much brotherhood. … It really moved me.”

Christine McVie's tear-inducing masterpiece is usually an end of the night affair, so I though it would be refreshing to turn up the sunshine and give it a power-disco sequin jump-suit. Wishing you all peace, love and dance floors for 2018.
Here we are in a room full of strangers...
Finding love and togetherness under the glimmer of the mirror ball.
Sometimes you've got to get out of your head and into your heart via the hips. This collection of tracks is what I lovingly refer to as my 'power disco' zone. Some sort of magic equation of soulful vocals, funk forward bass and disco energy. I hope you enjoy.

Created for our Fleetmac Wood set on the incredible Robot Heart art car sound system (2017). I wanted to combine the beauty of the original demo with the drama of sunrise on the playa. You can find the original demo recording on the Deluxe release of Rumours.
Black robes trailing....
I enjoyed merging the brilliantly wild live 82' version with three other 'Sisters of the Moon' recordings. It's been a joy to play at our @fleetmacwood parties over the last year. Also included on the latest @fleetmacwood Vol 7.

London via Burning Man, Nevada. This is the sound of dusty, desert disco, with all my favourite melodic, electro tracks from the Summer and a few psychedelic moments from past and present. I dedicate this mix to all the lovely, new amazing friends from Black Rock City and The Unnatural History Museum. Lots of glitter and hugs to everyone listening xx Roxanne Roll
Some of my favourite tracks that I've played this year at Secret Garden Party (the magical Pagoda Stage and the Badger Forest). Also a few new ones that make me dream of the next festival. A little disco, a little West Coast vibes, a touch of Australia, and a lot of Europe.

The Andromeda Galaxy has been recently mapped by NASA's Wide-field Infrared Survey. Although it’s 2.5 million light years away, the astonishingly detailed image makes it seem so much closer and tangible. What worlds exist in its clusters and spirals?
I hailed a taxi and asked the driver to take me there. As we passed the outer reaches of the Milky Way, the driver tuned the radio to Andromeda FM and this is what we heard.
