Acclaimed Producer and DJ David Holmes returns to his native city of Belfast for Space is the Place, an evening of music and performance at Banana Block with some of the most exciting names in electronic music.

Taking its name from the 1972 Afrofuturist science fiction film ‘Space is the Place’ by Sun Ra’, the event is a celebration of the cosmic other through music and film, futuristic synth melodies, afro-futurist beats and trans-dimensional sonic waves.

As well as performing on the night, David has curated a programme of artists including Space Dimension Controller, Die Hexen, Chris Frieze and Ruth Bate.

The event will feature visuals produced by Support and Supervision incorporating classic space themed footage from films such as Powers of 10, Pilot Pirx and Planet of the Vampires among others.

Strap yourself in for some spooky action in the fourth dimension!

Meet David Holmes

As a DJ and producer, David Holmes is highly respected in both the dance and alternative/indie worlds, but he's achieved his greatest success as a film composer, having written music for over 20 motion pictures since the late '90s.

He is currently part of the band Unloved, whose music has been used extensively in the television series Killing Eve, for which Holmes is the composer.

Meet Space Dimension Controller

Space Dimension Controller likes to reset the mood and set off in his own direction. Small dark spaces are the best canvas for this, and from there he journeys through all his influences in smooth fashion, with tempos rising as he shifts through 80s, disco, acid tech, IDM and house.

Meet Die Hexen

Die Hexen is an IFTA winning and BIFA nominated Irish composer, sound artist, producer, performance, visual artist and filmmaker (Dianne Lucille Campbell). Born and raised on the remote coast of Ireland, their avant-garde and often otherworldly creations exist and operate on the edge of reality.
