RL Grime’s annual Halloween mix has leveled up tenfold in just the last year, going from an eight-year run on SoundCloud to an audiovisual experience on YouTube in 2020 to an actual live production at the Hollywood Palladium. After pairing his ninth holiday edition with a visual counterpart, the Sable Valley boss decided to take it one step further now that live entertainment is back in play, presenting his legendary end-of-October mix in person for the first time ever and presenting “Halloween X” at one of Los Angeles’ most-famed venues.

Prefaced with a back-to-back from Juelz and JAWNS as well as a Boys Noize appearance as the evening’s last-minute special guest, RL Grime pulled out all the stops for his milestone mix celebration. Tapping none other than the science icon Neil deGrasse Tyson for the opening monologue of “Halloween X” alongside the series’ recurring host R.L. Stine, the trap king immediately dove into his holiday theatrics with a scorching opening ID from JAWNS. Standing at 75 minutes long, “Halloween X” goes down as RL Grime’s single longest holiday delivery to date and debatably the most memorable. In between the spine-chilling visuals, top-notch production—which is only unofficially available to relive at the time of writing—and electric edits, RL Grime fired off an untold number of future releases on Sable Valley from suspected names like Skeler and Deadcrow, Montell2099, ISOxo and PEEKABOO, and Juelz. “Halloween X” understandably couldn’t come to a close without forthcoming music from the mix creator himself, with RL Grime delivering not one but two of his own IDs, including a Hex Cougar and fknsyd collaboration as well as a follow-up HÆRNY track alongside Baauer as the mix finale.

Rossum Electro-Music Bringing Back The Classic E-Mu SP-1200 Sampler

There has not been an official announcement yet, but it looks like Rossum Electro-Music is planning to reintroduce the classic E-Mu SP-1200 drum machine and percussion sampler.

Rossum Electro-Music’s Dave Rossum was one of the founders of E-Mu, and last year introduced the 35th Anniversary SP-1200 Renovation – a limited edition of rebuilt SP-1200s, with updated software to support SD cards, along with other new features and updates.

Now, Rossum Electro-Music is teasing a Wednesday, November 3rd product announcement, with the catch phrase “Serious Repercussions”.  In the last few days, DJ Lethal has also shared images of a Rossum SP-1200.

The original SP-1200 was introduced in the ’80s and has been a favorite with producers since. Though they were made for an incredible 20 years, there’s still more demand than supply, with average used prices pushing towards $7,000 and up:

Pre-orders will open Wednesday, November 3rd at 10:00 AM PDT. See the Rossum site for details.
