RL Grime sounds similar to R.L. Stine, Goosebumps' creator. I think that's the whole point. R.L. Stine actually gives a fucking introduction to this shit, which is just incredible (if it's really him) – my 8-year-old self is crying right now. Of excitement. And out of fear: this is a halloween mix after all.

As I was listening just then, one of the comments on the mix said "What happened to music" – well, here's an open letter to that commenter: this is just a certain type of music, get over yourself. Another comment: "Playlist?" – look in the track info, silly.

ANYWAY. It's a super hard mix, a lotta bass-heavy business, washes of sounds to make you shiver, spooky subject-matter, harsh noise crashing like actual glass over your head, gut-punch beats — the whole thing reeks of shady dealings, ultraviolence, midnight pranks, dark strobing clubs where sweaty bodies writhe in satanic, hedonistic unison. Ummm...

As Mr. Stine put it: "Listeners beware, you choose the scare."
