REZZ incites Halloween-fashioned intrigue, launches eerie websiteNightmare On Rezz Street 1

Midway through Rezz-tober, the matriarch of all that is creepy-crawly has bestowed a mystery upon her unflinchingly loyal listeners in the form of a cryptic, Halloween-themed website.

Dubbed Nightmare On Rezz Street, the website features a number of ghoulish, Rezz-centric illustrations, along with an active countdown as its focal point, currently clocking in at just over five days before expiration (October 22). Given Rezz’s penchant for diversifying her releases–like her album-adjacent Mass Manipulation comic book–there will likely be a visual element to whatever frightful fun she has in store this season.

The “Hex” producer took to Twitter this past August (because it’s never too early to gear up for a good spook) to announce that the specially tailored project will be free and easily accessible for all. While she by no means elaborated on the nature of the impending release, she confirmed there is reason for fans to expect much more than a mere single-track undertaking. She also announced today that the identity of the project will be unveiled by tomorrow.

Rezz has been relentlessly satiating her band of self-proclaimed “cult” followers, releasing at least an album and/or EP a year since 2016, via her highly decorated mau5trap label housing. Her latest, Certain Kind of Magicfeatured a wealth of new faces, including 1788-L, Deathpact, and Kotek, all of whom have been encircling the blogosphere since the album’s auspicious release.

Grab a mask, slam back some candy corn, and get primed to get spooky: it’s October and officially witching season. Electronic music fanatics might be creatures of the night all year round, but there’s something so undeniably righteous about the Halloween season that makes the rapturous roar of dance music even more spellbinding. Whether in the form of diabolic dubstep or demonically deviant techno, the advent of electronic music has given the world some of its most truly terrifying tunes. In that vein, the Dancing Astronaut terror squad is proud to present 30 Days of Fright, our most dastardly dance music favorites for the spookiest month of the year.

By Asher Norris and Bella Bagshaw 


Surrender your consciousness and step inside REZZ‘s world of swirling asphyxia with “Relax.”

Feel your blood begin to bubble and your pulse hectically hasten as BlackGummy and Brooks’s “Neverdeader” breathes a bit of electronic hellfire.

Stream if you dare, as this flame-throwing dubstep track from Kill The Noise, “Black Magic,” will leave your eardrums scorched, but entirely satiated.

Zeds Dead offers up the score for entertainment of the entirely un-dead variety with their timelessly terrifying, “Demons.”

Careful – Megan James’s delectably delicate voice may seem perfectly benevolent, but make no mistake: lofty pipes like hers are witchy by nature.

ZHU plays maestro for all things that boogie and bump in the night with “Nightcrawler.”

Taste the psychedelic strangeness of An-Ten-Nae and Alice D.’s “Raindrops On Roses,” and fall into their preternatural purgatory.

Ever wanted to dance with the devil himself? Habstrakt‘s harrowing house track, “She Goes,” is an opportunity to do just that.

Zomboy invites you to venture through his dubstep-riddled zombie apocalypse with “Ressurected.”

Crowned prince of menacing sound design, Drezo sprinkles a ghastly vocal cut and some unearthly growls in one of his most downright evil releases, “Dead.”

Ivy Lab puts a wickedly delicious spin on an already-crazed Noisia classic, “Tentacles.”

Bask in the eerie ecstasy of Eekkoo and Forrest’s pulsating house production, “Preach.”

NERO solidifies their title as masters of destruction and drum ‘n’ bass with “Doomsday.”

Slithering and psychotic, Noisia’s “Lilith’s Club” will summon spooky sentiments from listeners across the board.

Catch a case of the techno scaries with Gesaffelstein‘s devilishly danceable “Viol.”

Magic Sword wields triumphant electrowave, “In The Face Of Evil,” to fend off even the most nefarious of forces in the days leading up to this All Hallow’s Eve.

Phantogram‘s off-kilter ambiance from “Funeral Pyre,” is the ideal supernatural soundscape, topped with seductive static and levitation-inducing guitar chords.

An undoubtedly foreseen, but fundamental addition to the list, deadmau5‘s “Ghosts ‘n’ Stuff” keeps the freaky, phantasmic fun flying all season long.


Float through the ectoplasm of The Upside Down with this exquisitely melodic synthwave track direct from the second Stranger Things soundtrack.

We’re not really sure what Moody Good is investigating in the malignantly-sampled “This Is The Investigation,” but we’re pretty sure it’s not natural.

Step inside Pryda‘s low-lit techno tunnel and experience the roaring mania of “Rebel XX.”

Those with a predilection for the creepy crawly end of the electronic continuum need only submit themselves to Knife Party‘s iconic “Centipede.”

Street Fever’s winding techno musings inside “Dispose” may be simplistic, but they’ll leave listeners reeling with haunted rejoice.

Feed Me‘s two-headed trap/dubstep hybrid “Pink Lady” will have you seeing phantom strobes well into the afterlife.

It’s virtually impossible to overload on REZZ tracks during any month, but it’s especially tricky this time of year. Her immortal state of “Delusion” thrusts listeners below ground, where the most formidable forces can frolic freely.

Virtual Riot unleashes a bloodcurdling, cinematic ruckus with zombie-apocalypse-themed, “Haunted.”

Names are not at all deceiving as Shadient takes Wavedash and Quest‘s unnervingly vocalized “Devil Music” for ransom.

Coast the un-departed synth-pop streets of Dance With The Dead’s chillingly regal “Nightdrive.”

Spirits loom overhead, as Stephan Bodzin’s “Singularity” permeates shuddersome sounds of uncertainty.

The evil computers of the underworld unite on Knife Party’s riot-conjuring, “Internet Friends.”


There’s too many spooky dance cuts to round up all at once, alas, we’ve got you going with a pretty good start. Keep the spooks in rotation all month long, and don’t forget to mix in “Monster Mash” a few times to get into the spirit of things this season. Stream the full 30 Days of Fright collection below.

RL Grime seeks fan submissions for annual Halloween mixRL Grime Day Of Dead Billboard 1548

RL Grime‘s Halloween Mix is an October tradition for the trap tastemaker, who now looks ahead to the 2018 installment of the annual series. RL Grime invites those with ghoulishly good material to send their song submissions to halloween@rlgrime.com as a part of his new call for producers to submit their “scariest songs” for consideration in the spooky sonic venture.

2018 marks the seventh edition of the mix, and if the impending release follows in the fashion of the 2017 mix, then listeners can expect RL Grime to intermingle a new ID or two among the selections that will comprise the mix. Last year, the mix featured several previously unreleased cuts that would later figure on Grime’s sophomore album, NOVA. Wynwood Fear Factory’s recent announcement of RL Grime as one of its Halloweekend festival headliners should only further incite excitement among RL Grime fans for October’s arrival.

BREAKING: HARD Day of the Dead plots return to newly-refurbished original home at LA Historic Park in NovemberPrydz Mau5 Hard Dotd 1

HARD‘s defunct Day of the Dead is officially back from the festival graveyard.

HARD’s Halloween offshoot event folded in 2015, though now the festival is set to relaunch, and it’s headed back to the brand’s original home at Los Angeles Historic Park in November. The Downtown LA park was home to the earliest iterations of HARD Summer and Day of the Dead, along with Swedish House Mafia‘s final performance in Los Angeles and other high-profile events. However, electronic events found a tough landscape in LA proper after a number of incidents across 2014 – 2015.

Prepare to get up close and personal with all of your favorite Day Of The Dead alumni on November 3. Notable alumni include Justice, Skrillex, Bassnectar, Deadmau5, Zedd, Calvin Harris, Pretty Lights, Knife Party, Major Lazer and many more. Looking back at past lineups, newcomers that are now headliners sprinkle the smaller fonts. The park is set for brand new amenities in the re-incarnation of LA’s favorite fright filled celebration.

At a Halloween festival where costumes are encouraged, HARD’s Day of the Dead is set to take creativity to the max. Stay tuned for sale and lineup information.

Tokyo Machine – Spooky

This post was originally published on this site

Opposites attract in Tokyo Machine’s newest release, “Spooky,” where an orchestra meets manufactured video game synths during the intro. The two contrasting sounds play off of one another and fall into a tech bass drop. Halloween sounds and themes weave in and out of the chords, thus lending the track its name.

The single is out now on Monstercat, and its release was timed perfectly for the spookiest of holidays, Halloween. Monstercat has specialized in gaming collaborations, making Tokyo Machine’s music a perfect fit for the label. Little is known about Tokyo Machine, as the producer has done a great job covering up his identity so far. As his music continues to gain momentum within the electronic music community, more information will undoubtedly come out.
