Blog Mainline: High Contrast Makes Incredibly High Profile Soundtrack

Posted in News on Wednesday 1st August, 2012 by Smash Gordon


Last week London had just a few eyes on it. Around the world a massive audience tuned into the opening ceremony of the 2012 Olympics and whilst everybody and the internet knew Danny Boyle was directing the piece and that regular conspirators Underworld were helping him with music, not many people knew that Hospital Records artist and decorated Welsh d&b producer, High Contrast, had been drafted in to help stitch the music together. Talking to Wales Online a couple of days ago he explained:

“Underworld wanted me to take a lot of their old tunes and remix them in a contemporary way and make them adaptable to the athletes' parade and as well as that write new music. It is certainly a high pressure thing to take on and I was really just working flat out on it and in the last couple of weeks I was working from 10 in the morning until 3am and 4am. But there was just a great energy to it. You just had to dig in and make it happen. You have no choice when there’s a deadline and the show’s on July 27.”
