Exclusive: Madeaux wields his unearthly, house-driven devices on Fleetwood Mac’s ‘Black Magic Woman’Madeau Press Shot

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 Dancing Astronaut 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.

What’s old is new — and thriving.

Though access to the world’s music catalog is easier than ever in 2019, fans continue to support a decades-old method of listening to their favorite artists: vinyl. United States vinyl sales in 2018 were up nearly 15 percent from their 2017 numbers, with 16.8 million records purchased last year. 2018 marked the 13th consecutive year that vinyl sales have grown, according to Nielsen Music, which has been tracking music sales since 1991.

Among these 16.8 million sold, albums like Fleetwood Mac‘s Rumours, The Beatles‘ Abbey Road, and Michael Jackson‘s Thriller notched top spots, with Guardians of the Galaxy: Awesome Mix Vol. 1 tying Thriller for the No. 1 spot. In terms of singles, The Beatles’ “Yellow Submarine” took the top spot with 10,000 sales, with songs like Prince‘s “Nothing Compares 2 U” and Led Zeppelin‘s “Rock and Roll”/”Friends” taking the second and third spots, respectively.
