Debut release from the Sunkissed Recordings label, and imprint dedicated to compiling the finest balearic moments from various artists. For this first volume, Sunkissed focuses on the work of bluesy rockers Fleetwood Mac, giving us a fantastic selection of sun-touched gems from their catalog. Kicking it off is the 12" extended dance version (mixed by the legendary Arthur Baker!) of the Fleetwood classic "Big Fun". Check that super tough drum programming, topped off by absolutely epic vocals and melodies that will send chills down the spines of the dancefloor denizens. Worth it for this one alone, but there's a lot more where that came from! "Ricky" is up next, a moody number that was a staple at the early Ibiza parties, while "Keep On Going" closes out the A-side on a swingin' uptempo groove. On the flip, things get chilled with the mellow vibes of "Hypnotised," and the sensual "Brown Eyes," before giving one last hurrah for the dancefloor with the stomping blues number "World Turning." All in all, a perfect addition to your sunset party crate. Recommended.
