Wipe that hangover halloween away in style

eople love halloween for all sorts of reasons. Some people love it for the costumes, some for the pranks, some for the parties, and some love it for the ever-present "threat" of edible-laced candy. Me? I love it for one reason and one reason only. RL Grime.

For eight years now, RL Grime has been using October 31st as the date to deliver arguably the most consistent, top-tier annual mix in the EDM community. If you haven't listened to any of his Halloween series before, do yourself a favour and spend the next day listening to them on a loop to catch yourself up, you won't regret it.

Jamming each year full of dark bass, hip-hop, unreleased ID's, label tracks and new collabs, he never fails to impress. Getting adventurous with his 2019 release, the this years ambitious, trap-laden setlist comes together for an hour long joyride that could rivals 2017 as his biggest mix to date.

Fusing deep bass with hip-hop & A capella beats, blending it all together over eery trap - RL really manages to hit this years theme home. Ominous undertones & dark vibes, shivery samples and some input from beloved 'Goosebumps' author R. L. Stine, it's clear, consistent, and at times weirdly kinda scary. If halloween had a soundtrack, this would be it.

Don't sleep on it. Whether you're at a party, stuck in traffic or sat at home, it's a mix built for all occasions. Give it a listen here, and enjoy your weekend. See you guys next time.
