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.
