Listening to the track Velodrome, one can easily be mistaken it as the genius work of electro house pioneers Daft Punk, but in fact it's the new tune from duo Chemical Brothers. The Chemical Brothers have recorded 'Velodrome' as the official soundtrack to the Olympics Track Cycling events in the velodrome this summer. "I have loved cycling since I was a boy. I have always made a connection between electronic music and cycling repetition, the freedom and sense of movement," Tom Rowlands of the band said. "Kraftwerk obviously cemented this connection with their 'Tour de France' track. For us to create the theme for the Velodrome is a great honour and we're really excited to hear it in situ." The song is one of five official tracks that will soundtrack the London 2012 Olympic Games. Muse, Dizzee Rascal, Elton John & Pnau and Delphic have provided the other four songs.
