Beat of London is Anywhere in the World
Mark Ronson & Katy B performed live for the first time their single Anywhere in the World as part of the Olympic campaign to celebrate the Beat of the London: 2012 Olympic Games.
Mark Ronson and Katy B performed for the first time live, their official single launch of Anywhere in the World in front of an audience of specially invited guests including teen competition winners, media and music industry professionals at an exclusive Coca-Cola Move to the BeatTM Gig at London venue, Under the Bridge at the end of last week.
Mark Ronson and Londoner Katy B performed the single as part of the Olympic campaign to celebrate the Beat of the London 2012 Olympic Games. The single includes the sounds of five athletes who were chosen for their sporting prowess and inspirational stories.
Ronson spent four months travelling the world meeting the athletes and at each visit he experienced their training regimes first hand and recorded the sounds of their sports. The single features Kseniya Vdovina (RUS), a 400 metre runner and her heartbeat recorded at a precise rate of 120 beats per minute; Maria Espinoza (MEX), Taekwondo with the song opening with words from her coach and cries and sounds of her kicking; Darius Knight (GBR), a Table Tennis player and his ‘grunts’ and the percussive taping of table tennis balls; 110 metre hurdler David Oliver (USA) and his feet hitting the ground forming a rhythm and Dayyan Jaffar (SNG), with the subtle swoosh of his arrow through the air and the percussive twang of it hitting the target.
