The Chemicals Brothers have launched a remix of their new track ‘We’ve Got to Try’,entitledWGTT15000BPM F1’ (NEEEUM MIX) to celebrate the start of the 2019 Formula 1 season.

The duo, famous the world over for pushing machines and technology to their limits via their music, have transformed a brand-new track into the iconic sound of an F1 car roaring past at high speed. The track, from the forthcoming new album, No Geography was broken down, re-engineered and accelerated to 15,000 beats per minute (BPM) to reflect the 15,000 revs per minute (RPM) that today’s hyper-complex Formula 1 cars are capable of reaching.

‘WGTT15000BPM F1 NEEEUM MIX’ is the result of that experiment and amounts to the fastest remix of all time — an appropriate claim for F1, the pinnacle of motorsport.

At 3 seconds long, this will become the new global sonic identity for Formula 1 moving forward, and the new track ‘We’ve Got To Try’, the sound of the F1 2019 season. The Chemical Brothers are long-standing fans of the sport and have performed at multiple parties over the years; the collaboration continues the band’s incredible track record of innovation such as the creation of the music at the Velodrome in the 2012 Olympics. You can hear the remix below.

“The engineering challenge of creating the fastest remix intrigued us as Formula 1 fans and music producers,’ said Tom Rowlands of The Chemical Brothers, “It’s exciting to hear our music in the context of F1. The speed and intensity of F1 is a nice reflection of our music and live shows”.

To further reflect a sport in which every second counts, the remix is accompanied by a series of 6-second films that appear to show a dog behind the wheel of an F1 car and commandeering a rocket into space. With the release of the full track, ‘We’ve Got To Try’, The Chemical Brothers will also  shortly reveal their music video which tells a tale of heroic canine ‘Girl the Dog’ and her mission to complete the impossible.

Ellie Norman, Marketing Director of F1, had this to say about the partnership: “As pioneering sound engineers, with music to match the speed and intensity of F1, there’s nobody better for us to partner with than The Chemical Brothers.”
