Tim Green has had a phenomenal year. After the highly anticipated remix of the Paul McCartney and Timo Maas collaboration and an acclaimed EP on Lee Burridge’s imprint Get Weird titled “For A Memory”, he is back on remix duties on Cityfox’s new release by Atelier Francesco. The EP comes with an array of remixes, but it’s our own Tim Green who delivered a very special interpretation for ‘Dead End’.
Long drifting basslines drop at the 3-minute mark setting the tone for the track, topped by mesmerising vocals and melodic guitars. The track evolves simultaneously between melancholy and euphoria, memories and hope, verging on the edge but never falling into either extreme. This is the perfect blend proving Tim Green’s prowess in the studio. Expect this to close out many sunset sets for the rest of the summer.
Dublin DJ/Producer released his debut artist album Ructions bedding into the playlists of electronic music fans worldwide and he’s now brought together an exciting array of fellow artists to deliver their interpretations of his milestone work, including our own, Fur Coat.
The original “Klout and Bones” features a driving bass line paired with synth washes that sound like speeding cars to create a distinctly urgent tone. Fur Coat then turn in their own moodier, rolling rework to give the track a new dimension for the floor. Built around an expectant, pulsating beat, their edit feels both near-hypnotic and infectious, serving as an excellent addition to Matador’s original mix.
The part 1 of the remix EP was released on the 1st of August.

Tim Green has carved out a reputation for himself as one of the main in-demand producer. Whether serving up rolling techno treats for Cocoon, essential mixes for the Body Language series on Get Physical or laying down compelling club sets in the DJ booth, Tim is unstoppable right now. This time, he’s back on the Lee Burridge’s imprint Get Weird.
With the ink of Paul McCartney’s hand-stamped face still wet; Timo Maas quickly returns to the shelves with yet another killer track. Exotic machine-born melodies give an underlying attitude across the legendary producer’s first full EP on Sasha’s Last Night On Earth label.
The release ties together waves of hi-hats and the complex, intricately rich sounds that Timo so effortlessly includes into everything that comes out of his studio. A favourite of Sasha’s for some time, the ample echo applied to all of “We Are One’s” sounds until at one point blur into a haze of strange take on effects will undoubtedly find their way into every nook of the every club dancefloor.
What the Beatles were to rock music in the 60’s, Kerri Chandler was to dance music in the 90’s, causing quite a stir in the underground house music scene. As the king of soulful, melodic and instrumental-based deep house and as a longtime fan of Paul McCartney’s music, who better to rework a legend like Macca than Kerri 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. The track has a thick, menacing bassline running through its core that’s set against Paul’s soothing vocal strands and scattered hi-hats and cymbals that add to the signature Chandler groove.
‘Nineteen Hundred and Eighty Five’ has taken the world by storm in 2016. The record that brought Paul McCartney fame in the 1970s, reincarnated by Timo Maas and James Teej has now been reworked by Paul Woolford and premiered on the Cool Hunting website.
It was April 2016 when the mysterious white label first appeared in select record stores. NME broke the news of “the origins of a mysterious house remix of Paul McCartney” and it was labelled “an instant classic that captured the imagination of music fans” by Billboard.
Paul Woolford has been known under many monikers throughout his illustrious career as a dance music DJ and producer, such as the groundbreaking Special Request and Bobby Peru. But none are as renowned as his birth name, with which he lifts ‘Nineteen Hundred and Eighty Five’ to new heights, going as far to extend it to an 18-minute jam in his full-length remix.
The Nineteen Hundred and Eighty Five single is now out.

Even when he’s not spending time in his studio, deep in the Swedish forest, Sebastian Mullaert always stays close to nature as a source of inspiration for his musical journeys. XLR8R delivered one of these magic moments asking him to set up his machines on the beach-front near Los Angeles. The result is a 15-minute live interpretation of his latest release ‘Windmaker’ which will blow your mind. You can catch it here.
Tim Green’s ”Only Time Remains’ release got an impressive remix pack from Get Physical. The reworks come courtesy of two well-respected titans: Crosstown Rebels regular Francesca Lombardo and No Idea’s Original boss Huxley. Huxley’s remix sits first on the release and expertly gears it up. Building on the atmospheric structure, the UK tech maestro delivers a slow-winding groover with a hypnotic, eerie air to it, amplifying the low-end chords, shooting it as a bass line designed to destruct a dancefloor. Echoe label owner Francesca Lombardo then steps up, bending synths and slipping a spooky feel into play. It is spine tingling to start, building to a sumptuously synthetic peak with elastic synths and slippery drums rolling down below. Full of electronic energy and bass lead menace, it is another sure-fire winner.
The music industry has gone into a spin about ‘Nineteen Hundred and Eighty Five’ over the past two weeks. A mysterious limited 12” test pressings, with Paul McCartney’s face hand-stamped onto it, dropped in Phonica Records. The 12″ sold out in hours in Phonica and Deejay.de, going straight to number one overnight on both stores and selling on Ebays for 400$ ever since.
Later, Billboard Magazine broke the news in an exclusive interview, the record is the work of Timo Maas and James Teej. Originally a B side, the luminous ‘Nineteen Hundred and Eighty Five’ was first released in 1973 and took Timo Maas until 2009 to discover it during a trip in Ibiza. It’s only 6 years later in 2015, his musical cohort James Teej and him contemporised this classic sound and brought a modern edge into it. Revealing the details behind the story, the news spread wide with article in NME, Rolling Stones Italy, ID Magazine and support from BBC 1’s legends Pete Tong and Annie Mac. This is in no small part due to Paul McCartney being one of rock’s most iconic figures, from his frontman status within The Beatles to his solo outfit Wings, he trailblazed the 70s with a string of hits.
The original ‘Nineteen Hundred and Eighty Five’ was the closing track on the 1973 album ‘Band on the Run’ and found critical acclaim for Paul McCartney & Wings (the solo outfit the Beatles member founded with his wife Linda) through references to George Orwell’s 1984, yet it also tells an unlikely love story through its lyrics. Industry heavy-weights Timo Maas & James Teej elevate the track and spark it with electronic heat, creating a perfect storm between the past and the present.
