Basement Jaxx Soundtrack For 'Attack The Block' Gets U.K. Release Date

The Playlist By Kevin Jagernauth | The Playlist May 3, 2011 at 4:29AM

Scores for films are no longer just the domain for classically driven composers. The past year has seen a crop of electronic-based artists take the reins with Daft Punk and Chemical Brothers powering "Tron: Legacy" and "Hanna," respectively, while Nine Inch Nails frontman Trent Reznor surprised everyone by walking away with an Oscar for his work on "The Social Network." And it's not gonna stop there.

Scores for films are no longer just the domain for classically driven composers. The past year has seen a crop of electronic-based artists take the reins with Daft Punk and Chemical Brothers powering "Tron: Legacy" and "Hanna," respectively, while Nine Inch Nails frontman Trent Reznor surprised everyone by walking away with an Oscar for his work on "The Social Network." And it's not gonna stop there.

House music icons Basement Jaxx have tuned the forthcoming alien invasion flick "Attack the Block" and the soundtrack -- at least for those of you across the pond -- is right around the corner. The 20-track disc from Simon Ratcliffe and Felix Buxton (as they are credited here thankyouverymuch) with additional music from Steven Price will land on shelves on May 16th, three days after the film opens on May 13th in U.K. cinemas.

As for the rest of us who don't feel like paying import prices -- we'll have to wait. Screen Gems have picked up the film for U.S. distribution and while no release date has been set, we figure they'll build buzz with genre festival screenings (Fantasia, Fantastic Fest, etc.) before getting it into theaters. At any rate, our crew down in SXSW loved it and the rest of us can't wait to catch up. Check out the full tracklist below. [Facebook]
