As we count down the hours to Halloween, what better way to ring in the spookiest day of the year than with RL Grime?! His seven original mixes are the perfect recipe to commemorate the holiday right.
Each its own chilling tale, the producer’s sprawling Halloween content now runs nearly 7 hours if you play it straight through. Each installment powers though an era of trap, starting with his inaugural 30-minute mix from 2012 and ending with the most recent, which runs well over an hour.
Over the years, RL Grime has racked up millions of plays with his Halloween mix series. The latest Halloween VII edition has already acquired 384,000 plays and counting in just four days since its release. More importantly than the stats, Grime’s signature mix is all about tradition — his loyal fan base, fellow DJs, and the entire SoundCloud community have come to expect his highly-anticipated yearly treat.
By RL Grime’s doing, trap has instinctively become the sound of the season. Over the years his style has remained loyal to hip hop, hybrid trap, and his own masterful style that defies genres. The work of fellow producers including Baauer, Alison Wonderland, Boys Noize, GTA, Skrillex, Eprom and so many more are highlights of these mixes, seamlessly woven between underground treasures, and viral hits from Drake, Lil Wayne, Travis Scott and many others.
If you start now, you just might be able to cram in all of these mixes before the strike of midnight… Enjoy!
