Following their 20th anniversary as a duo, The Chemical Brothers have released the fourth single from their forthcoming Born In The Echoes LP.

Single Review: Chemical Brothers "Theme For Velodrome" (2012)

As a soundtrack to the London 2012 Olympic cycling events, electronica masterminds The Chemical Brothers have produced "Theme for Velodrome". There’s no gorgeous ambiance here, none of that production which gives you time to stop and admire the soundscapes the duo so perfectly craft.
