Readying for his debut EP release Halloween weekend at Kitty Cat Klub's "Menergy" monthly dance night, Minneapolis producer Gigamesh whipped up a killer Halloween mix to get us in the mood. This isn't your typical mix stuffed full of tired Halloween themes like "Monster Mash" (although it does include Vincent Price's unforgettable "Thriller" monologue). Instead, it's ripe with dancefloor movers that dip ever so slightly into creepy territory with far away vocals, dissonant snyths, and helter-skelter rhythms. 

Our favorite part comes 44 minutes in when Matt folds in a re-work of Edwyn Collins' haunting atomic gem, "A Girl Like You" (You might remember it from Empire Records).

Here's the tracklist:

Midnight Juggernauts - Scorpius
The Champ's Boys Orchestra - Tubular Bells (Cosmic Mix)
Chromatics - Night Drive
Emperor Machine - Space Age Pop
Gigamesh - People (feat. Nicole Godiva)
Miami Horror - Grand Illusion
Goblin - Tenebre (Serge Santiago Edit)
Automat - Droid (Cécile Edit)
Risqué Rhythum Team - The Jacking Zone
Mylo - Paris Four Hundred (SebastiAn Remix)
Eine Kleine Nacht Musik - La Serenissima
Arnaud Rebotini - The Swamp Waltz
Edwyn Collins - A Girl Like You (Gigamesh Edit)
Zombie-Zombie - Halloween Main Theme
Vincent Price - Thriller Monologue
Black Sabbath - War Pigs


Saturday's party will also feature appearances by Bach666 and The Nightstalker (could there be a more fitting alias on Halloween?), and set against the backdrop of the Kitty Cat Klub -- which already feels sort of like Grandma's freaky attic -- it's sure to be a great party option this weekend.

Gigamesh will for the first time offer merch at the show, including copies of the EP for $5 each. Links to the EP online: iTunes, Amazon, Juno, Beatport
