teh s3quence 015 – HALLOWEEN 2011 EDITION

Because I like to do things out of order (and also because I totally forgot that I hadn’t posted teh s3quence 014…), I’m giving you teh s3quence 015, the HALLOWEEN EDITION!

Usually when I make a Halloween mix, it’s pretty straightforward — pick a bunch of songs that are about zombies, vampires, ghosts or are otherwise spooky, mash them together, make sure there’s at least one requisite track from an actual Zombie (Zombie Girl, White Zombie, Rob Zombie, Nik Fiend (who actually is a zombie) and call it good. This year, I went about it a bit different.

Rather than just get a bunch of Halloween-themed songs, I tried to pick tracks that were actually spooky, not just about spooky things, or spooky in a campy way (see: Sneaky Bat Machine and Voltaire). So this mix has a lot more emphasis on mood and ambiance. Oh, there’s the Zombie Girl track in there, too, and I threw in “Everyday is Halloween” at the end to lighten the mood (how often can you say that you added Ministry to lighten the mood?), but otherwise I was going for stuff you might actually play if you were hosting a haunted house or a let’s-all-watch-The-Exorcist party. Also, you know, I had to step up my game this year to compete with @slighter’s Halloween Mix…

teh TOTALLY 80s s3quence

music was a cornerstone of my childhood. i grew up with mtv and what i consider to be the height of radio — back when dj’s played good music that wasn’t dictated by record labels. some people think that 80s music sounds kitchy, dated, or lo-fi, but i say it’s all of these things that make 80s music great. music was going through a revolution at the time. the 80s saw the rise of punk, goth, industrial, dance and idm — though not all of them were called those things at the time. and 80s music was and will always be the music of my childhood and fills me both with nostalgia and an uncontrollable urge to dance. so, i had to make this 80s mix. it wasn’t a choice, it was a need.
