Barely months after Daft Punk stowed away their mixing desks having lent their neon-tinged beats to Disney’s tepid tech sequel TRON: Legacy, it has surfaced that the kings of London house Basement Jaxx are scoring forthcoming home-grown sci-fi feature Attack the Block.
Although nothing’s yet been confirmed by the guys themselves, Shaun of the Dead director Edgar Wright pretty much let it slip when he tweeted: “Heard some of Basement Jaxx’s score for Joe Cornish’s Attack the Block yesterday. Still humming it today”.
With the movie tagged “Inner City vs. Outer Space”, the urban music tourists Basement Jaxx should prove a perfect match for Attack the Block. Written by one half of late-night Channel 4 soft toy molesters Adam and Joe, it’s a British action comedy that sees a gang of South London hoodies trying to defend their estate from an alien invasion.
The film’s due out in April, with no word as to when the soundtrack will drop.
