Yet another artfully constructed listening experience from DJ Bumbaclot.
Despite the decidedly un-scary and delightfully un-ironic viral video the title is referencing (as least, I’m pretty sure that’s what it’s referencing), this time he delivers a spooky and off-beat Halloween mix that might be just the thing to get you in the mood to celebrate a holiday on a BORING WEDNESDAY NIGHT. Living room dance party!

DJs have always fascinated me. It’s a job that seems so easy from the outside – how hard can it be to make a playlist and crossfade from song to song? – but just stand behind a really talented DJ for a few moments and you can’t help be overwhelmed by how much is actually going on. So many moving parts that all need to be perfectly balanced lest the flow be ruined. Being a DJ is an art requiring intense concentration, a delicate hand, and real musical sensibility.
First, apologies for how belated this is. Second, I probably shouldn’t admit this, but I don’t usually enjoy listening to film and TV scores.
Its not that I don’t find them interesting, or that I groan every time I have to review a composer reel for work (though I will if I have to listen to 12 composer reels in a day) – I just don’t think to put on a score for pleasure listening. With the Golden Globe nominations announced yesterday, I just had to give it up to Atticus Ross and Trent Reznor – their music for The Social Network might be the first film score I’ve actually had on repeat outside of the office.
