Pete Tong's Essential New Tune
Paul McCartney (Timo Maas & James Teej Remix)
white label
This has been a bit of a secret weapon for me for the last six weeks. It's a brand new interpretation of a track which first came out in 1974 by Paul McCartney and his post-Beatles band, Wings. The track is called 1985 and it's been remixed by none other than Timo Maas and James Teej. The two producers have just put together a new collaborative EP called Things which is coming out on Damian Lazarus's Rebellion label.
This week’s Essential New Tune is featured in last week’s Friday show on BBC Radio 1. Listen Again and forward to 30:20 mins here
