Happy Halloween!


Halloween is one of those holidays that the music scene has really taken an affinity to… we know, because of the enormous amount of music that comes out around Halloween, let alone the number of Halloween-themed songs making the rounds, are enormous. Today being the most spooky day of the year, we thought it’d be nice to share some of the more recent creepy, crawly, sinister and scary releases with you – including some of the free give-aways and LPs/EPs available for purchase.

First and foremost is one of our favorite new producers, Figure. In-time for the holiday, he released part 2 of his Monsters of Drumstep series, which includes some seriously sick takes on some of the most classic Halloween themes and films, and features remixes from a few of today’s hottest producers.

And to promote the release, Mad Decent stepped in and let Figure smash the decks for a special promo mix as well.

And even better than that, Figure’s been kind enough to drop a ton of free Halloween-inspired tunes!

Figure’s first Monsters of Drumstep EP was released on Reid Speed’s PLAY ME 2 label, who also just released their new Horrors Of Halloween EP (Beatport link), with tracks from Devin Martin, Dirty Talk, Run DMT, Drop Goblin and Dirt Monkey.

Another label getting in on the action is Faust & Shortee’s Heavy Artillery Recordings. Producing under the Urban Assault moniker, Faust & Shortee gave away this little gem simply entitled Halloween.

Of course, we wouldn’t be doing our jobs if we didn’t self-promote! SP’s newest contribution to his ongoing list of mixes is entitled NO ESCAPE!, and features some seriously heavy, demented and Halloween-themed dubstep (and a touch of drumstep thrown in for good measure).

Enjoy the music, support the artists… And have a happy (and safe!) Halloween!
