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!

Stranger Things – Main Theme (JACKNIFE Bootleg)
Rezz & Malaa – Criminals

Rezz Drops New Collab with Malaa During Freaky Deaky Performance [WATCH]

Rezz & Malaa Ring In Halloween With Their Epic Collab, “Criminals”

There’s lots of new music to tune into this Halloween. Between new 1788-L, RL Grime, Martin Garrix, and more, it can be hard to choose. That being said, for Rezz and Malaa fans, the choice is clear.


The two just dropped their first collab together, “Criminals.” At first listen, it’s a brilliant combination of both their styles, melding Malaa’s house vibes with Rezz’s more technical synth and bass work. With each successive listen, the intricacies make themselves more and more clear, from the vocal work to the tiny little background synths that give it that really spooky ambiance.

Check out “Criminals” below! You can find tickets to see Rezz on tour here, and Malaa here.
