So, here we are: we’ve arrived at the release date of the full-length debut from Adam WarRock, entitled The War for Infinity, which also means it’s the release date of my latest dj mix. As I mentioned last week, it’s a mixtape available exclusively as a free bonus download with the purchase of the deluxe version of TWFI.

Here’s the tracklist of the mix, including most, if not all, of the little samples here and there. I threw in a couple drum loops from some producer sample-type discs as well. And just because I’m a bit obsessive, I’ve added a link for most of the tunes, so you can hear them out of context.

download: DJ Empirical, “Halloween Mix 2009”
30 oct 2009

I made this (as you would expect) in preparation for Halloween 2009, as I’d never really made a Halloween themed mix before (that I could remember).

It’s a very pan-genre mix, running the gamut from rap to metal, from industrial to disco, and with a Wesley Willis track to cap it all off. All of the songs have a scary theme/title, whether it be monsters, murder, or something in between.

Very NSFW (or radio) at times, for those of you who care.


Whodini – The Haunted House of Rock (remix)
Gnarls Barkley – The Boogie Monster
Grand Buffet – Murderfuck
Danzig – Twist of Cain
Skinny Puppy – Testure
Goblin – Tenebrae (main title)
Addrisi Brothers – Ghost Dancer (Hey Convict! Rebirth)”
Fudgie & Fufu – Surfin’ Dracula (a cappella)
Hot Ice – Theme from ‘Friday the 13th Part 3’
13 & God – Ghostwork
Cesare vs. Disorder – Midday Vampire
Clark – Dead Shark Eyes
The Bulgarian feat. Spoek – Jack It Like a Zombie (Santiago & Bushido remix)
Bloc Party – Hunting for Witches (Ruckus Roboticus remix)
Metalchicks – Dead Loss Angeles
Otto von Schirach – Tea Bagging the Dead
20goto10 – Halloween
Buckethead – Mad Monster Party
Wesley Willis – Suck a Werewolf’s Dick

With selections from General Mills cereal flexi-disc “The Monsters Go Disco”, William S. Burroughs‘ “Naked Lunch”, and a few horror films.
