None of us would have thought that four years later we would be releasing new music in collaboration with members of the Basement Jaxx family and with the support of Jane Sutton, mother of our only honorary drummer, the late Stephen Sutton MBE, who drummed with us at the UEFA Champions League Final 2013 at Wembley Stadium.
BBC Radio 5 live caught up with our drummers Jan Pearson, Helen Isaacs and Vera Yu and other Games Makers at the Stadium, running an interview about what it was like to be part of the London 2012 Olympics - our new single and video Champion caught particular interest with BBC's Jonathan Overend.
Listen to BBC Radio 5 live's coverage of the Anniversary Games today, 23 July 2016!
Champion is a new life-affirming charity song that captures the Olympic Spirit.
Felix Buxton from Basement Jaxx collaborated with the Pandemonium Drummers on this charity single in aid of Teenage Cancer Trust, celebrating the legacy of London 2012.
Champion is released on 27 July 2016 on Atlantic Jaxx Recordings.
The Pandemonium Drummers were originally put together by London 2012 Ceremonies for the Pandemonium segment of Danny Boyle's spectacular Olympic Opening Ceremony. Following the Ceremony, the volunteer drummers kept on performing at a variety of events.
Based on their extensive training, they performed at other Opening Ceremonies, including the UEFA Champions League Final 2013, the FA Cup Final 2014, and the Heineken Cup Final 2014, and at a variety of large and small festivals as well as sports and community events. The Pandemonium Drummers are a returning act in London's major parades, including the London New Years' Day Parade, St Patrick's Day Parade, and the Lord Mayor's Show, and they coined Cheer Drumming, supporting runners at major sports events across the capital and beyond. The Pandemonium Drummers have supported the Special Olympics, the Teenage Cancer Trust, and a wide range of other charities.
The Pandemonium Drummers are a constituted association with charitable aims, and are working on a non-profit basis as volunteers.
