David Holmes Announces New Residency

DJ, producer and film composer reveals details of 'God's Waiting Room', a new Tuesday night residency in an undisclosed location 'where music has never been played'

Though he is occasionally to be seen spinning records at album launches, film screenings and other arts events in Belfast, in an intriguing post on his Facebook page, Belfast-born DJ, producer and film score composer David Holmes has revealed that he is soon to take up the reigns at a new club night, known as 'God's Waiting Room', in an undisclosed location presumably in his home city.

Illustrated with a photograph of former Belfast venue The Lifeboat, Holmes writes: 'The last great venue I DJ'd in Belfast... I have a new night starting very soon called 'God's Waiting Room'. It will be on a Tuesday at a location where music has never been played. So excited... Expect great underground cinema and lots of music you won't hear anywhere else.'

Holmes is undoubtedly one of Northern Ireland's most successful musicians. He made his name as a producer and DJ in the early 1990s, and has remixed tracks by the likes of U2 and Ice Cube. 

Over the years, Holmes has worked with some of the finest directors in cinema, including Steve McQueen on the acclaimed Hunger, and most recently composed the score for the Yann Demange Troubles movie '71, which is screening in Queen's Film Theatre, Belfast on Sunday, March 15.

Holmes also knows a thing or two about running successful club nights, having founded the iconic Sugar Sweet and Shake Yer Brain at Belfast Art College. When asked by one of his Facebook followers when more details of 'God's Waiting Room' would be announced, Holmes replied 'soon'. Watch this space.
