For those of you who want to know, the soundtrack for the December 2012 display was produced by Nik Goodman and Dan McGrath from This is Bounce. I worked with Nik back at Capital FM when he was Programme Director for the original Capital FM Network and then Capital FM. Fans of the Chris Evans Breakfast Show when it was on BBC Radio 1, and also the Big Breakfast may know Dan’s work (he was Dan The Soundman). You can find out more about the work they do on their website. Nik has blogged about the creative process to this mix here

In case you missed it, or want to hear it again, here’s their mix

  1. There was a lot of great stuff in there – loved the Seb & Boris clips + rhythmical use of Prince Charles & Her Maj over the _Queen_ claps – made me smile when I spotted that connection!

    One question though – in capturing the sounds of 2012 with a musical montage, why no Elbow – First Steps or Underworld – Caliban’s Dream? (or at least a bit of Born Slippy!). I guess someone somewhere had a reason for excluding them, as they could hardly have been forgotten.
