The official soundtrack for forthcoming UK rave culture film 'Beats' is available to stream now.

Produced by Steven Soderbergh and directed by Brian Welsh (whose previous credits include 'Black Mirror'), the film is set in Scotland during the summer of 1994 and follows a pair of friends as they get to grips with the free party scene of the time before they separate as adulthood awaits. In the process, the film's writers Brian Welsh and Kieran Hurley offer a gripping look back to early days of the UK's rave scene.

Ahead of the film’s release this Friday 17th, the full soundtrack has been added to Spotify. Featuring over 20 classic anthems from the UK’s golden age of rave and some more contemporary cuts, the soundtrack includes tracks from The Prodigy, Joey Beltram, Leftfield, LFO, Inner City and Orbital. Scottish producer Hudson Mohawke’s 2015 cut ‘Scud Books’ also features.
