This track features two of my favorite songs of all time - “Landslide” by Fleetwood Mac and “Feelin’ It”by Jay-Z. I have been dying to use both of these songs in a remix, and was pleased that they came together so well. I created a simple beat to put behind it… and then just let Stevie and Jay do their respective thangs!
ABOUT SKEETWOOD MAC:
Fleetwood Mac is one of the greatest bands ever. Producers rarely remix Fleetwood Mac. Why you ask? Most remixers and mashup artists focus solely on what is “hot” now – you know, pop songs and EDM “hits.” The Melker Project wanted to buck the trend and introduce mashup fans to some of the timeless classics that often go untouched in remix culture. You know, GOOD songs.
“Skeetwood Mac” is the first in a series of EPs being released by The Melker Project, each focusing on a different classic artist. As the name implies, this EP is comprised of five Fleetwood Mac songs, each mashed up with Hip Hop and R&B standards.
