Halloween has always been a very popular “holiday”. The creative (and not so creative sometimes) costumes and carved pumpkins has been a tradition since the mid-1930s and will probably be around for as long as humanity exists (2012 anyone?).
DJs take the time to craft special sets for their Halloween gigs every year so we thought it would be appropriate to tell you about some of the great tracks that would make a perfect fit for your playlist.
Perfect Driver – Circus (Halloween Edit) [Perfect Driver Music]
Tech House lovers/DJs no longer have to compromise their sets with dark Electro and Dubstep tracks. Circus injects the perfect amount of rhythm and “darkness” into any Tech House/Techno set.
Buy “Circus” at Beatport [Tech House]
Black Tiger Sex Machine – Rezorecta (Original Mix) [Kannibalen Records]
Kannibalen Records is a premier destination for dark music also known in Europe as the “Death Electro” movement. This Canadian label and its core group of talented producers are doing a great job of introducing it to the rest of the world in their own unique way. Rezorecta is definitely a top pick for any Halloween set.

Jay Saunders – Zombie Apocalypse (Jake Shanahan Remix) [Big Alliance Records]
The name itself should be explanation enough of the track it is but just for reassurance, Zombies + Music = Win (or so we think). Jake Shanahan does a great job in turning the melodic original into a straight Electro banger.
Buy “Zombie Apocalypse” at Beatport [Electro House]
Till Death – Beware The Night [Comorbid Records]
Till Death’s debut on Comorbid give us a perfect dark track for those looking for something different and out of the ordinary. Great Indie Dance track with a Rock feeling.
Buy “Beware The Night” at Beatport [Indie Dance]
Robert Vadney – Miami Zombie [Exalted Tunes]
A Halloween Trance playlist can’t be completed without a Robert Vadney track and Miami Zombie definitely fits in that role.
