Shadowland

Shadowland

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.

So far in my quest to listen to all of LLM's mixes from the first to the latest, this mix has been the darkest in terms of colour and tone. Shadowland in apt description of this mix. Dark but delightful, sombre but bittersweet. And anything that has a taste of David Lynch's composition is a treat.

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
