Halloween Mixes to Combat Decision Fatigue IV

Hey, it's time for another installment of Halloween Mixes to Combat Decision Fatigue. Perhaps you remember the mission statement here: Don't waste brain power on a lackluster Halloween mix when you can instead trust a professional DJ's mix or a curated channel. Play them for trick-or-treaters, at your party or just during an All Hallow's Eve chill session.

This year, the pickings are a bit slim. Some of my favorite Halloween mix contributors (Dr. Rubberfunk, Evil Nine, DJ BobaFatt) took this year off, but the Wyrding Module delivers once more with " \/\/\ ~ Halloween Mix 2015."

The Wyrding Module is musician Chris Gladwin's uncanny solo project -- and some of you might know Chris from his work as one half of Team Doyobi. I keep past WM releases in year-round rotation, so I'm pleased to have this new release in time for Halloween night. It'd a little mellower than previous Wyrding mixes and releases, but still delivers an excellent supernatural vibe. I can't sing his praises highly enough, so be sure to check out my interview with the man from 2013.

UPDATE 11/02/15: We also have a new live show from the Wyrding Module:

Last year, the Wyrding Module gave us the superbly creepy "Music From the Space Between," which you can still acquire right here:

As for other new Halloween mixes, you'll have to fill me in. I notice buzz about an RL Grime Halloween mix, but I'm not sure it's really my cup of tea. But hey, maybe its yours. Likewise, there's a PC Music Halloween mix that's just a little too glitchy for my tastes, but mileage will vary. If anything new comes to light in the next 24 hours, I'll add them to the post.

I continue to recommend SomaFM's Doomed channel, which features a gloomy mix of dark and industrial music. And if you want to enjoy some previous mixes by the aforementioned DJs, I'll embed a few below.

Happy Halloween...
