FOR fans of electronica, Holmes is where the heart is.
Over the past 20 years, when the Northern Irish DJ hasn’t been soundtracking feature films, running hugely influential club nights or helping rock bands produce their albums, he’s been churning out endless tunes that are cooler than a frozen cucumber.
The Dogs Are Parading is a best-of collection, 29-tracks strong, which is a perfect snapshot of Holmes work - strutting through the chaotic early work such as My Mate Paul to the atmospheric likes of 69 Police and on to the slicker new material like You’re On Fire (Too Fat), as well as a glut of remixes.
So head out on walkies and fetch yourself a copy of The Dogs Are Parading - it’s a dance fan’s best friend.
