On May 7, REEL MUSIC, a club night comprising entirely of music from the movies, will take place live from London's Bloomsbury Bowling Lanes.
Brought to you by DJ and radio producer Neill Smith and film-maker Paul Davis (Beware the Moon), REEL MUSIC brings movies and club culture together in a seven-hour event dedicated to the sounds of cinema. From within one of London's premier bowling venues, Bloomsbury Lanes, five DJs will play everything from the obvious to the obscure in motion picture soundtracks. Whether your cup of tea is Dirty Dancing or Beyond the Valley of the Dolls—they'll have it covered. Among the DJs are BBC Radio 1 film critic James King, musician and soundtrack producer (Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz) Osymyso, soundtrack extraordinaire The Freelance Hellraiser, and events organisers Neill Smith and Paul Davis, under the pseudonyms Michael J. Rox and Tall Newman.
"REEL MUSIC is my dream soundtrack night. I'm going to play everything from odd remixes to big, sing-a-long chick flick anthems. It's going to be blockbuster!" — James King.
"The important thing is that all of us playing are huge film fans. Whether you're a casual cinema-goer or you've had a subscription to Empire magazine for 20 years, we're adamant that you will go home happy at the end of the night." — Paul Davis.
"Soundtrack nights are an opportunity to play a really diverse set—Henry Mancini and Daft Punk back-to-back has to be a good thing, right?" — Osymyso.
