Boombox Cartel Throws Down With Epic Dia de los Muertos Mix

We’ve already seen a dozen or more Halloween mixes flood Soundcloud this past week, but few DJs can appropriately lay claim to a Dia de los Muertos mix, one of them being Boombox Cartel.


The duo of Americo Garcia and Jorge Medina have done it once again as they dive headfirst into the fourth iteration of their yearly DDLM mix. Though it obviously shared similarities with any other Halloween mix, it has that certain je ne sais quois that only Boombox can bring to the table.

With a little over 45 tracks, including IDs from Boombox and others, over the course of 55 minutes, this is up there for one of our favorite spooky mixes of the year.

Check out the tracklist here, catch Boombox Cartel on the road, and listen to the mix below!

Zeds Dead Drop New Deadbeats Radio Mix For Halloween

Zeds Dead Drop New Deadbeats Radio Mix For Halloween

Entering late into the Halloween mix race is Zeds Dead! One of my first times seeing the Canadian duo was at HARD Day of the Dead 2013 when they played atop a massive haunted house, so I have no doubt they can throw down a spooky mix along with the best of em. Thankfully, I didn’t have to listen very long to have my suspicions confirmed.


This is easily one of the spookiest mixes of the holiday, with “Monster Mash,” “Devil’s Den,” a “Thriller” mash up, the duo’s own “The Twilight Zone,” and more, including 1788-L’s new remix of the Halloween theme song. Track selection is only a part of the game when it comes to presenting a certain vibe within a mix, but Zeds Dead have it down to a science.

Check out the full mix below!

Tracklist:
Stranger Things – Main Theme (JACKNIFE Bootleg)
Rezz & Malaa – Criminals
Zeds Dead – Demons
Bobby Pickett & The Crypt Kickers – Monster Mash

RL Grime Drops 2019 Halloween Mix With Guy Fieri

RL Grime Drops 2019 Halloween Mix With Guy Fieri


It’s the most~ wonderful time~ of the year~

No, it’s not Christmas. It’s Halloween and RL Grime just dropped his annual mix just moments ago. This year, the intro duty was given to none other than Guy Fieri — it’s hard to conceive how the two came into contact, or how Fieri even agreed to jump on the mix, but we’re definitely not complaining.

The one-hour mix goes through the usual variety of trap and hip hop, mixing in dark beats and sinister vibes along the way. YouTube impressionist and Vine star Jake Foushee also makes an appearance, as well as the granddaddy of them all, RL Stein.

Check out the mix below, tracklist coming soon. Also find tickets to see RL Grime live on tour here.

Lane 8 Drops Enthralling 2-Hour Spooky House Mix For Halloween

Lane 8 Drops Enthralling 2-Hour Spooky House Mix For Halloween

Halloween can manifest itself in a lot of different ways. You could find joy in giving others candy when they come to your door, you can dress up and go out partying, or you could turn your porch lights off and enjoy the fact that your roommates are out of the house for the night and cozy up with a good book and a cup of hot cocoa…


In the same way, Halloween can present itself differently in music. We’ve already seen dozens of bass music mixes come out to celebrate the horror filled nights, with one of the biggest still on its way, but how about house?

The groovy genre doesn’t typically have that sort of growling, impending-doom type of sound to it, so how do you make it spooky? You up the suspense, the darkness, the looming sense of unease. It’s not an easy task by any means, but Lane 8 accomplishes the task spectacularly.

While two hours for a mix might seem like a hefty task, as well, á la BBC Radio 1’s Essential Mix, Lane 8 goes beyond that for 140 minutes of groovy, dark, foreboding house that flows like a demon into the night. Even listening to it in the morning will give you a bit of a boost going into the day. Listening at night, well… that’s another story entirely.

Check out Lane 8’s Halloween 2019 mixtape below, and buy tickets to see him live on tour here.

Dimension Unveils Stunning Debut Radio 1 Essential Mix

Dimension has perhaps had the biggest year of anyone in DnB. The hype behind this artist is absolutely unparalleled — after putting out “Desire” with Sub Focus toward the end of 2018, he followed it up with “Devotion” and “If You Want To,” going on to remix the latter himself. He made his live show debut at London’s prestigious Electric Brixton earlier this month, a world-first immersive, multi-sensory dance music experience.


Now, he’s made his debut on the illustrious BBC Radio 1 Essential Mix with two hours of incredible drum & bass. With over 75 tracks in the mix, Dimension takes his time and lets the songs speak for themselves, never mixing out too quickly, but always making sure the flow is moving forward.

Start your week off right with this blistering two-hour mix — listen below!

See tracklist here.

Excision Shares Full 2 Hour Set From Lost Lands 2019

We’re now nearly three weeks after Lost Lands this year, and I’m sure some people are still wishing they were right there in Legend Valley in front of the Paradox headbanging their riddim hearts out. Sadly, it cannot be… BUT! In lieu of actually being there, Excision has finally released the HD stream of his 2-hour headlining set from Friday night.


The 2-hour set has nearly 120 tracks in it, making it nearly one track a minute. The wild pace alongside the already wild tracks is part of what makes an Excision set an Excision set and what makes them legendary. Of course, a lot of flow is sacrificed when you’re mixing that quickly, but there’s nothing wrong with having banger after banger, either.

Check out the full 2-hour set below! And scroll down to see the complete tracklisting via 1001tracklists.

01 Excision – ID (Intro Edit)
02 Excision & Wooli ft. Sam King – Evolution [EXCISION]
03 BAINBRIDGE – ID
04 NAZAAR – Modern Hieroglyphics [NSD: BLACK LABEL]

Eric Prydz Teases Eight Unreleased Tracks In Return Of EPIC Radio

Eric Prydz brought back his EPIC Radio on Beats 1 with a stellar, hour-long mix filled with new and old music. Though the mix only contained twelve tracks, an astonishing two thirds of that was unreleased music.


After starting the mix with “Terminal 5” from his latest Pryda EP, he dove right into unreleased tunes “My Freedom” and “Fabric Test,” as well as an unreleased collaboration with Steve Angello, “Bedtime Stories.” He ended the show with 5 IDs in a row, including desperately desired songs from his Lollapalooza, HOLO London, Holosphere, and Creamfields sets.

Prydz just released his Pryda 15 Vol III album a week before the mix went live on Apple Music, so to come back with so much still unreleased music was a real treat. You can listen to the full mix below.

Tracklist:
01. Pryda – Terminal 5
02. Pryda – My Freedom
03. Pryda – Fabric Test
04. New Order – True Faith (Sam Ball Remix)
05. Eric Prydz & Steve Angello – Bedtime Stories
06. Pryda – Nile
07. Pryda – Joyous
08. Pryda – Spy2
09. Pryda – Lollapalooza 2019 ID
