Nineteen Hundred and Eighty Five (sometimes written as 1985) is a song by British pop-rock band Paul McCartney and Wings taken from the studio album Band On The Run, originally released as a single in June 1974 via Apple Records.
In March 2016, a crop of 12" records materialized on Phonica Records' website featuring a chugging house remix of the ex-Beatle's Band on the Run finale Nineteen Hundred and Eighty Five. The limited vinyl run (said to be about 100 copies) swiftly sold out amid a frenzied demand that found copies fetching upwards of $400 on eBay.
The authenticity of the remix's multitrack recordings and McCartney's recent announcement of a 67-song greatest hits package eventually revealed that German veteran Timo Maas and Canadian producer James Teej are responsible for the release (and acted with Sir Paul's blessing).
The luminous Nineteen Hundred and Eighty Five was first released in 1973 and took Timo Maas until 2009 to discover it. Amazed at how fresh the record sounded and how much it sounded like early house music, he teamed up with musical cohort James Teej to contemporise this classic sound and bring a modern edge into it. They completed remixing the track in 2015, after a six year break with the little project.
They have stripped out some of the original instrumentation (such as the piano track) to create a greater sense of sonic space and beefed up the bass and drum sound and added some vocals that weren't used in the final mix, that they believe gives the song new life and a bluesy edge to it.

This amazing remix has now been officially released via Virgin Records Germany via a download and streaming on 13 May 2016 and a very limited vinyl 12" single edition on 3 June 2016.
This is a Limited Edition 12" Vinyl Single on 180 Gram Vinyl with 3 Remix Tracks and a Digital Download, pressed in Europe (Germany).
