Paul McCartney Vs Timo Maas & James Teej (Kerri Chandler remix)

Back in the 1960s, The Beatles were everything. The four-piece from Liverpool soundtracked the lives of generations and were, arguably still are, the biggest band of all time.

In 1973, Paul McCartney and his new band Wings released 'Nineteen Hundred and Eighty Five' and it was their break-out hit after The Beatles broke up. Who would have thought that this year a re-incarnation of the track would cause such a stir?

After appearing as a white label earlier in the year, it emerged that Timo Maas and James Teej had reworked the record and had even gained McCartney's golden seal of approval.

So now the track has seen a full release and it's sending people crazy so what's next for the banger that's gained a new lease of life? Well some new remixes, of course.

Paul Woolford and Kerri Chandler have turned in new edits and we've got the exclusive premiere of Chandler's remix.

If The Beatles were all the rage in the 60s and 70s then Kerri Chandler was the house icon causing a similar stir in dance music in the 90s. As the king of soulful, melodic and instrumental-based deep house, who better to rework a legend like Paul than Chandler himself.

The vocal mix sees Chandler adopt the Kaoz 623 Again guise and it's more of the incredible same we've come to expect. It's got a thick, menacing bassline running through its core that's set against Paul's soothing vocal strands and scattered hit-hats and cymbals that add to the groove.

We're thrilled to be able to present the first play of this one and we know you're going to love it like we love Kerri. Which is a lot.

The '1985' remixes will be released on July 15 via Virgin, pre-order here
