About the show

Playing tracks by

Je Suis Le Petit Chevalier, Dj Signify, Aidan Baker, Julien Neto, Grouper and more.

Josh, from Nocturne Records, requested a Halloween mix.

At first I was reluctant because I'm not a big fan of dark ambient. I've never really cared for Lustmord records, although I do have "The Place Where Black Stars Hang." While I do have a fair amount of drone music I don't like dissonant drones.

When I set out to do this mix I wasn't sure what direction it would take. Would it be noisy, scary ambient drones? As I was looking through my music I came across "The Twin Peaks Archive" by David Lynch & Angelo Badalamenti. I thought, now there is some dark-ish music that would be cool to use in a Halloween mix.

Three Twins Peaks tunes made it into the final mix & helped establish a sort of film noir feel. There are definite dissonant moments but hopefully the mix is more creepy & shadowy rather than outright scary & annoying.

I like this a lot...very similar to my Halloween mix you can find here

I agree with derby378, ambient & jazz definitely makes for a more interesting listen than the usual remix of horror soundtracks for Halloween

Downloading to listen to at work tomorrow - looking forward to it. I've found that dark ambient and jazz, under the right circumstances, can make for an interesting mix. Check this out if you get a chance: The Small Hours
