Two and half months ago I got an incredible phone call. It was from Underworld. I have been a huge fan of them for many years and more recently have had the honour of being musical collaborator with them. On this occasion, they rang to ask me to get involved on their current, very epic musical mission…the London 2012 Olympic Opening Ceremony.
I obviously jumped at the chance and moved over to London for the duration, working relentlessly on the part of the show they wanted me to help out on – the Athletes Parade. It was a very specific brief, something as a lone D+B producer I’m not used to doing, but was a wonderful challenge to have. Drum + Bass wasnt really on the cards for this, it was more just my uplifting, melodic vibe that was needed.
It’s been an incredible experience working alongside Underworld and their whole team, for which I can never thank them enough. I’ll post a full report next week.
For the time being, you can watch the Opening Ceremony again over on BBC iPlayer (or click the image below!)
