Halloween Mixtapes
November 1, 2010 11:10 AM   Subscribe

The pumpkins are mouldering or smashed, candy wrappers are strewn about, and your costume is tossed aside. Keep the mood going for a bit longer with some Halloween mixtapes, from film composer Alan Howarth (credits, IMDb), and three(tracklist) streaming mixes from electronic/breakbeat producers Evil Nine. If you are looking for more beats and rapping in your mixtapes, here are three volumes of Night of the Living Dead (NSFW), from Cookin' Soul.

Whoa, keeping the Halloween mood going after Oct. 31? I'm going to have to give this some thought.

Do you have a newsletter or something?

Nope, just a pile of cassettes. Want some?

(I didn't think of looking for Halloween mixtapes before Halloween, and saving these links until next year seemed like a lot of patience. I was thinking of calling these "Day of the Dead Mixtapes," but that's not true at all. So, you have free music, one day late to be thematically fitting. Anyway, not everyone lives in a land of Halloween and such.)

I think November is an inherently spooky month during which we all ought to gather round hearths and tell spooky tales to stave off the cold and darkness.

That being the case, Alan Howarth's mix is making my work day quite pleasantly spooky.

If you like Alan Howarth's mix, the Evil Nine mixes fit into that same theme. They aren't the group's usual breakbeat style, but mix of old horror soundtracks with clips from the movies, and a track or three at the end that showcases their own productions.

I would add to that list:
This Nurse With Wound mix on mnmlssgs and Demdike Stare's podcast for the Unsound festival.

I maintain that Halloween starts on Labor Day and lasts until Thanksgiving. The rest of the year is not Halloween, but we must all keep the Halloween spirit alive in our hearts.

Official Halloween celebratory games end on American election day, thus proving patience is NOT always the wise course of action.

Damn, that Alan Howarth mix was great.
Late to the party, but here's Depth Charge's 'Dead By Dawn' (vid. probably nsfw).
