Canadian turned Berlin based producer Ghost Lakes drops “The Promise Of Money” on Memphis based label Voodoo Village, the EP (which includes remixes from Boy 8-Bit and Wax Romeo has already seen support from among others Neoteric and Astronomar) is filled with what can only be considered dark techno with a futuristic and refreshing feel.
The season of spooky is upon us and we here at Discobelle decided to gather a couple of the Halloween mixes that we think deserves a little special attention. Get ready to be scared silly.
We start off with a grueling doom/stoner mix from the Finnish masters of bass, Sharkslayer.
Then the British duo Evil Nine of course does their Halloween mix, the third edition is even more haunting then before.
“Oh hey! It’s that time of year again; the time of year where we spend a incredibly long day in the studio listening to incredibly dark and depressing music and dialogue from old horror movies until it drives us fucking insane. We’ve risked our nerves and sanity to bring you this lovely collection of VHS era electronic horror soundtracks by popular artists such as Chuck Cirino, Tanizaki Tetora, Simon Boswell and Terry Taylor. Plus it includes four previously unreleased Evil Nine horror tracks. VHS ‘Party’ is maybe overdoing it a bit, we’re not completely sure how you’re supposed to party to it but I’m sure you’ll enjoy it’s spooky bounty all the same. Have fun! X”
Our old friend over in NYC, Pocketknife decided to celebrate Halloween with a pagan mix.
“As the leaves fall in the woods and the bonfires are lit, a new mix for you focusing on the darker rituals of the season with pagan pop, mystical dance tunes and haunted sound collages…a clank here, a distant chant there. I also included some reworks from the first Canyon Dancing as well as the yet-to-be-released Canyon Dancing 2 and the in-the-works CD3.”
Babe Rainbow over in Canada makes things even more bloodcurlingly scary with his slowed down and chopped n screwed hip hop mix.
London producer Deadboy hands in his addition to the Halloween mixvagaza, “no tracklist, but features music from The Fog, Zombie Flesh Eaters, Suspiria, The Beyond, Zombi, Blakula and more.”
Boy 8 Bit goes creepy with his horror movie mix.
Tracklists for all the mixes can be found after the jump.
“Turbo is proud to announce a great new ep by everyone’s second favourite Cornish redhead, Boy 8-bit. Musically, he fits in very well for a label that keeps it’s feet planted in different worlds; his tracks are ‘big and loud’, but they keep a sense of reserved funk, melody, and playfulness that feels all too rare at the moment. His productions have attracted the support of Diplo, Fake Blood and Annie Mac, and his DJing has earned him the right to take a crack at the latest in Bugged Out’s ‘Suck My Deck’ series. ‘Yard Birds’ is a bomb. Tiga has been playing it at every festival this summer and the crowds have gone wild…”
