The remix features in new documentary Better Days: The Story of UK Rave.
Special Request – real name Paul Woolford – has delivered a new remix of Orbital’s 1989 breakthrough rave anthem Chime. Entitled Chime Re-Record (Special Request’s remix), the rework was produced for inclusion in new music documentary Better Days: The Story of UK Rave. The Hugo Jenkins-directed film charts over 30 years of British rave culture and features a soundtrack from duo Overmono. Artists like Sherelle, Prospa, Dance System and Orbital’s Paul Hartnoll also feature in the documentary.
“So lovely to hear Chime with fresh ears presented by the fantastic Paul Woodford aka Special Request,” said Hartnoll in a statement. “One of our crown jewels in safe hands! Big thank you to Amazon Music for making this happen”.
Better Days: The Story of UK Rave premiered on Twitch at the end of May. You can now watch it in the Amazon Music app or via the Amazon Music YouTube channel. Tune into Chime Re-Record (Special Request’s remix) below.
