Time for some musical catharsis. Presenting the annual Global Horror music mix!
The creepiest episode of the year includes 28 songs representing 15 nations. It’s always one of my favourites to make because it allows me to indulge my dark side (we’ve all got one I think). There’s a ridiculous variety of stuff in here. Some will make you dance, others will make you want to hide. There are songs about monsters, vampires, the apocalypse, hot beer, ghosts, and everyday horrors aplenty. I hope you enjoy the paranormal journey.
A funky music mix for a wacky summer right here. Dive in and explore new music spanning the globe – the closest thing to international travel that we’re gonna get this year.

Despite the seismic global changes that seem inevitable in the coming years, the endless creativity of humans make me believe that we will ultimately get our shit together. But it’s gonna take a real team effort!
