About Us

About

The Eighty Sixth Floor is the home of soundtracks for the passionate fan.  Whether your passion is for Anime, Gaming, the far reaches of Science Fiction or the epic scope of fantasy movies, we’ll have something for you.

The Eighty Sixth Floor was founded to reflect our love of these genres and to collate and compile our favourite music from those films. We’re building a series of albums that collect and collate our favourite music from a wide range of genres.

Where possible we use the original scores, where the pieces are not available or not of sufficient quality we commission new recordings. We love the music we produce and we’d love to hear your suggestions for more tracks or music that we could provide to keen fans.

Where should I start?

Our catalogue is big and growing fast – so we have divided our website into several easy ‘zones’ to allow fans to find their favourite music. The zones will feature all albums, tweets and blog posts that relate to the music you’re interested in.

Alternatively you can run through all of our titles from the menu on our front page.

The Zones can be categorised as:

Anime and Games
Our Anime and Games compilations will take you from ruined undersea cities to the edges of space in a single playlist. Featuring The Evolved and Anime Kei’s unique cover versions of tracks from some of our favourite games and Anime of all time. Check out our Respawn or Anime Stars series for a quick introduction.

Fantasy and Horror
Fantasy and Horror films have never been as popular! And with an increase in the popularity of the genres at the cinema has seen a growth in the complexity and variety of scores. Our fantasy and horror collections cover tracks from Harry Potter to The Walking Dead and encompass some of the most exciting film music on the planet right now.

Our quarterly Auteur range collects tracks from the greatest indie films of the last three months, and our TV and period cinema collections collects tracks from some of the greatest dramas ever made.

Our music isn’t available on physical formats at the moment, but it’s something we’re looking into for the future.
