It wouldn’t be Halloween without a fresh mix from RL Grime, and he finally dropped off the 12th mix in his beloved series to celebrate the holiday.
Few artists in the scene have fully embraced Halloween quite like RL Grime has. The trap legend staked his claim over a decade ago by releasing a jaw-dropping mix that set the tone for his project and showcased his love for all things that go bump in the night. Past years have seen him continue to flex with intros that featured everyone from DIESEL to Goosebumps author R. L. Stine. At the same time, the highly curated tracks inside each edition cemented RL Grime’s legacy as a tastemaker, and he took everything to another level with live shows surrounding the tenth and eleventh editions.
This year has seen RL Grime power forward with more sounds for fans to explore. Not only has his label, Sable Valley, featured some of the most dynamic releases in the scene from boundary-pushing artists, but he also dropped off his latest album, PLAY, which solidified his grip on the trap realm. But fans yearned for their latest dose of spooky vibes from RL Grime, and now, he’s delivered Halloween XII for fans to feast their ears on and properly celebrate the holiday.
Halloween XII clocks in at just over an hour and is filled with quality tunes and IDs. For this year’s intro, RL Grime decided that it was long overdue for him to be the one to mark the occasion, while he joked, “Also, we couldn’t get anyone famous to do it.” The eerie sounds from the intro lead directly into Pooh Shiesty and Lil Durk’s “Back In Blood,” and it’s off to the races from there as RL Grime runs through tracks like Juelz and Killy AI’s “NEW GROUND” and a remix of Swedish House Mafia’s “It Gets Better” by Control Freak.
Spread throughout the rest of Halloween XII are tracks like Skrillex, PEEKABOO, G-REX, and Flowdan’s “Badders,” along with others from artists like G-Buck, Tisoki and Cesqeaux, A$AP Ferg, and more. And true to form, there’s a hearty helping of insane IDs that will leave listeners craving to see an official release. Give this one a spin and celebrate the spookiest of holidays in style with RL Grime… if you dare.
Listen to Halloween XII on SoundCloud or your favorite platform, and stay tuned for these IDs to be revealed in the future.
