RL Grime's Halloween mixes have grown into a legendary tradition at this point; with the artist delivering hour long compilations for the last four years. Last year's compilation was chalk full of original RL Grime tracks from his debut studio album VOID, and the LA-based trap lord continues to place unreleased gems in this years mix. For 2015's edition we receive a 70 minute long compilation, and although a tracklist hasn't been released yet, after our first listen we've discerned mixes featuring Young Thug, A$AP Rocky, Drake, and many more. There's also a hilarious skit from comedian Hannibal Buress about wanting to make that "festival money" which will have you hysterically laughing. We'll be sure to fill you in when the official tracklist is released.
For now, turn this hour long party on full blast this weekend as you gather with friends to celebrate. Enjoy!

Goodbye Nina Las Vegas!
Our favorite Aussie radio personality said farewell to her 10 year relationship as host of various Triple J programs this weekend. During her tenure, Nina helped jump start the careers of many local acts including Peking Duk, Chet Faker, What So Not, Alison Wonderland, and Wave Racer, while bringing in a plethora of international artists into the studio. Essentially, if you went down under as a dance music artist, you had to slide through Nina Las Vegas doors.
As Nina transitions into life as the head of her own record label, she asked the likes of Diplo, RL Grime, Cashmere Cat, Swick, Anna Lunoe, Flight Facilities, Levine, and Flume to curate 30 minute mixes for final program! If you're in need a bulk fix of new music, this is surely the one you want to listen to! No word on a tracklist yet but will update as soon as we have it. Enjoy and good luck Nina Las Vegas on your upcoming endeavors! ]
Order of mixes: RL Grime, Cashy, Levins, Diplo, FF, Swick, Anna, Flume
UPDATE 9/22/2015: While exploiting the originals dark nature, RL Grime takes The Weeknd's vocals and imprints his exemplary kit of bass and trap prowess into the fold. This crossover into the electronic mainstream is set to register some heat throughout the forthcoming fall months, and we are for certain that one listen to the stream below won't be enough! Enjoy
The Weeknd – The Hills (RL Grime Remix)
