Batman goes techno


Better late than sorry. It sure looks that the underground music scene has finally entered right into the heart of Hollywood. In the latest incarnation of the apparently immortal Batman a whole row of techno celebs are contributing to the soundtrack.

Using both exclusive productions and some pre-existing bangers from the likes of Peggy Gou, Kevin Saunderson, Patrick Topping, Alesso, Baauer, and more from the dance music world, The Batman also features scenes shot at London’s Printworks nightclub.

A full list of tracks used in the latest Blockbuster film has now been revealed, which includes ‘Frisk’, a joint track by Kevin Saunderson and Patrick Topping, and Peggy Gou’s ‘Darkroom’ and ‘Troop’ released via Rekids.

Baauer’s ‘Hot 44’ also appears on the soundtrack, as well as a single by major Swedish EDM star Alesso titled ‘Dark’. Most music compiled for the film falls under the classical, opera, and electronic categories.

Several fight scenes in The Batman’s Iceberg Lounge nightclub are accompanied by a number of these electronic tracks, all of which was shot at London’s legendary Surrey Quays nightclub.

The club was first spotted in trailers in October last year after Southwark News reported sightings of a “bat signal” over Canada Water, and Batman-fronting star Robert Pattinson was spotted on set in South London.

Earlier this year, Robert Pattinson revealed that he had dabbled in making ambient electronic music on the set of the next film.
