AAIMON’s Halloween Broadcast
So, yes, OK. Halloween was a few days ago. But that doesn’t stop me posting this mix from San Diego witchhouse and drag producers AAIMON. Serving as a fitting follow-up to their superb session for Mantis Radio back in August.
The mix tracklist. Of which some I recognise some I don’t and some I can’t even pronounce (my pet hates with the genre), it is nonetheless a hefty wedge of 120 minutes of murk ridden, double digit bpm partial soundscape heavy texture darkness. If you’re looking for something different then you’ll likely find some reward within. If you ever had Goth tenancies (you make your mind up on that) when growing up (or even still now) this mix should resonance with you as much as some of Robert Smith’s efforts.
Whenever a national holiday comes around; Christmas, Halloween or whatever, there is an increasing influx of mostly substandard and unimaginative mixes and compilations. Just last week my network feeds were rammed with people’s Halloween specials.
Most were uninspiring and the typical, tried and tested Halloween selections; thou this did make me smile. This session is different, like a cold haunted night in an abandoned graveyard that had a decent sound system.
Originally recorded for Karnival Radio‘s Textbreak show as their Halloween broadcast.
