Music producer James Teej never expected Paul McCartney would give his stamp of approval to a dark remix of one of his songs.And he certainly didn’t think his collaboration would take him to the Grammy Awards either.On Sunday, the musician will be in the running for best remixed recording alongside German producer Timo Maas for their update of Nineteen Hundred and Eighty Five.Their version takes the song from McCartney and Wings’ 1973 album Band on the Run and reshapes it with a new edge.”Quite frankly, doing an electronic remix of a rock ‘n’ roll song is pretty tricky,” says Teej, who spent his childhood in Quebec and Alberta.”You’re going to have some people that absolutely love the outcome and … some people that absolutely hate it.”MUSIC Grammys Teej McCartney 20170206James Teej never expected Paul McCartney would give his stamp of approval to a dark remix of one of his songs.
