The approach of October’s end means the celebration of Halloween is nearly upon us for much of the western world, but to the experienced trap connoisseur, it signals the impending release of RL Grime‘s annual mix in celebration of the haunted holiday. Starting in 2012, the “Aurora” producer has crafted a spectacular mix each year to serve as the perfect soundtrack for a night of spooky vibes and costumed ravers, and now he’s gearing up for his fifth entry in honor of All Hallow’s eve.
RL Grime dropped a video on social media earlier today in anticipation of the Halloween 5 mix, delivering a trailer for the upcoming playlist. The video features stark shots with a horror vibe to them, while teasing the date of this Friday, October 28th, meaning that the new mix will arrive before the week is over. As Halloween falls on a Monday this year, the timing is perfect, as many parties will be going on over the weekend.
RL Grime‘s previous Halloween mixes have been very warmly received by the dance music community and there’s no reason to think this year will be any different. We’ve included some past mixes below for your listening enjoyment. Check them out and keep an eye on We Got This Covered this Friday, as we’ll have the new mix for you as soon as it’s available.
