About this item

DJ and producer David Holmes is welcomed to the Late Night Tales fraternity with an evocative collection of personal songs and music, peppered with exclusive new material and rare gems.

By now, I think we all know David Holmes, right? There’s acid house Holmes, with bone-rattling Chicago jams and Detroit destroyers; break-digger Holmes responsible for the grittily shaking ‘Let’s Get Killed’ and seminal Essential Mix compilation (which brought Sixto Rodriguez to people’s attention, and then there’s soundtrack Holmes.

His most enduring and vital source of musical inspiration - cinema - plugged into David’s first solo record ‘This Film’s Crap, Let’s Slash the Seats’ and inspired 2000’s ‘Bow Down to the Exit Sign’; created as the soundtrack to a not-yet-made movie. Official soundtracks have been bountiful, including scores for Soderbergh’s Out Of Sight and Ocean’s trilogy, '71, Hunger and Good Vibrations. In a series of personal songs sung by himself, David’s last solo album ‘The Holy Pictures’ explored influences of La Düsseldorf, The Jesus and Mary Chain and early Brian Eno. His Unloved collaboration with Keefus Ciancia and Jade Vincent then took us on a musical journey full of raw 60s pop-noir, psychedelia and French Ye Ye with a contemporary twist. Somehow he’s also found time to produce records by Primal Scream and Jon Spencer Blues Explosion.

STAFF COMMENTS

Patrick says: Over the course of the past two decades, David Holmes has treated us to everything from Detroit techno to Detroit punk, serene ambience to slamming house, raw funk to smooth grooves. Producer, musician, DJ - this guy does it all! For Late Night Tales he harks back to his soundtrack stylings with a set of wistful Americana, sweeping folk and dusted dreampop which marry with a happily-ever-after rarity.
