Halloween may not officially arrive until October 31, but that doesn’t mean the treats can’t come early. Yesterday RL Grime revealed that his annual Halloween mix would arrive a few days ahead of schedule this year and just as promised, it’s landed right in time for your weekend party plans.
RL Grime’s annual Halloween mix is a tradition that now runs five years deep. Every spooky season producer Henry Steinway brings together the year’s best bangers with eerie overtones (and often a special guest narrator) for the mix, which is given away as a free download. The 2016 instalment is no exception: Halloween V runs for a full hour and features an intro from Pharrell, a shout-out from Goosebumps author RL Stine and theme music from this year’s Netflix sensation Stranger Things.
From there, listeners fall head-first into a heavy, bass-filled mix of hip-hop and trap fit for blasting from the car stereo while cruising in the dead of night. Get stuck into RL Grime’s fifth annual Halloween mix below; revisit his previous mixes here.
