Following his work for TV in the mid-90s, the late 90s saw Holmes move strongly into soundtrack work.


Holmes’ first proper soundtrack, the Marc Evans film Resurrection Game, appeared in 1997. The experience inspired Holmes to travel to New York and gather a wealth of urban-jungle environment recordings, compiled and mixed into his second proper album, Let’s Get Killed.
He followed with the remix collection Stop Arresting Artists, and in 1998 scored Steven Soderbergh’s A-list Hollywood feature Out of Sight with a prescient set of groove-funk. (The attention also earned him a place in Entertainment Weekly’s list of the Top 100 Creative People in Entertainment.) His single “My Mate Paul” even featured as the theme music to the Sony Playstation game Psybadek. Essential Mix 98/01 followed later that year, and in 1999 This Film’s Crap, Let’s Slash the Seats was reissued with a bonus disc of rarities and unreleased tracks.
