RL Grime’s annual Halloween mix is a tradition that runs six 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.
Steinway’s 2017 mix landed over the weekend and true to form, it’s a bass-filled mix of hip-hop and trap fit for blasting from the car stereo while cruising in the dead of night.
While Goosebumps author RL Stine handled the intro for RL Grime’s first three mixes, recent years have seen Broad City actor Hannibal Buress and Pharrell on intro duties.
But this year, it was pro skater Tony Hawke who greeted listeners, before RL took listeners through sixty minutes of tracks from rap heroes like Rae Sremmurd and Post Malone, and producers like Rezz, Flume and ATLiens and Hudson Mohawke — along with plenty of on-point RL edits.
