    Congrats to Underworld, who have been named the music directors for the opening ceremony at the 2012 Olympic Games in London!

    Rick Smith and Karl Hyde will work alongside Oscar-winning British filmmaker and producer Danny Boyle, the previously announced artistic director of the ceremony.

    Smith + Hyde will dictate, organize and supply music for the three-hour ceremony, which will take place in July.

    Smith + Hyde have worked with Boyle on his films, such as Trainspotting.

    Are you psyched about the 2012 Olympics? Do you dig Underworld?
