Exclusive: Madeaux wields his unearthly, house-driven devices on Fleetwood Mac's 'Black Magic Woman' – EDM All Day

An equal parts spectral and seductive presence runs through Madeaux‘s remodeling of the ubiquitous, Santana-adopted, Fleetwood Mac original, “Black Magic Woman.”

Though the track eclipsed the charts under the prestige of legendary guitarist, Carlos Santana’s 1970 release, the consequential inspiration behind Madeaux’s rework, he says, comes from Fleetwood Mac’s initial, 1968 issue, which he reveres for its enigmatic, “smoldering quality.”

“I don’t generally listen to house when I’m looking for inspiration because then I’d have the same energy as everyone else making house…” Madeaux tells EDM All Day of the release. “I sought to bring [Fleetwood Mac’s] flavor to the dancefloor, whether on the poolside at sundown, or the after hours when the mood is right.”

Madeaux leaves his indelible, delicious kiss of death on his “Black Magic Woman,” providing his own sultry vocals, adding subtly funky plucks, and an oscillating bass, to boot, that shakes as if it’s all at once soaking wet and scalding. The delectably danceable, house-driven rework will make a devil out of you, too, if you’re not careful.
