David Holmes


Featured on Holmes' 1995 debut release This Film is Crap Let's Slash the Seats and three years later on Kruder & Dorfmeister's Sessions, "Gone" brings out Trip-Hop's visual elements much like the experimental breakbeat stylings of Mo' Wax poster boy DJ Shadow. Enlisting the quasi-Shirley Bassey vocal resonance of Saint Etienne's Sarah Cracknell and Progressive Rock artist-turned-Ambient Techno composer Steve Hillage's atmospheric strings, Holmes turns out a murky roller of a track that breathes life into a lonely, James Bond-inspired tale of evil temptresses and governmental treachery. A vaguely noticeable Celtic essence emphasizes a sense of homesickness in this Belfast native's uneasy mix. With this track's brooding cinematic textures and oddly appealing sense of loneliness, Holmes draws a listener base of solitary moviegoers.
