Carl, who went down to BBC Elstree for a day to work with the music production team as a part of the overall prize, said: “I have grown up hearing Simon May’s original theme tune and watching Albert Square and the iconic Queen Vic, so I feel very privileged to be a part of Eastenders: E20 history.”
Diederick Santer said of the winning remix: “I’m really pleased with Carl’s new version, and think it will top and tail our new series brilliantly. It’s noisy and fun and full of life – much like the characters of EastEnders: E20.”
Simon May, who composed the original tune, added: “We were looking for an original and contemporary remix of the EastEnders theme, retaining its DNA but also something that had a young take on what BBC One viewers have become familiar with over the last 25 years.”
