The Ultimate Halloween Playlist

embedhalloweenPhotos: via Amazon.
Halloween is arguably one of the best holidays of the year. Not only do you get to wear whatever you want (seriously, whatever you want) and eat unlimited candy, you also get to party all night without the unfulfilled expectations of New Year's or the forced family obligations of every other holiday.
There’s only one snag: the playlist. While all other holidays have a long list of tried-and-true songs, Halloween just has "Thriller." The rest are fit only for a children’s carnival. (We CANNOT hear "Monster Mash" one more time.) So, we tapped some of NYC’s hottest DJs — who play at clubs like Le Baron, Le Bain, Output, TBA, (Le) Poisson Rouge, and more — for their expert suggestions for a seriously spooky playlist.
Contributors include Travmatic, whose famous Kaviar Disco Club parties are always packed with pretty foreigners; Tomie Marosey, who has played around the world, from Brazil to Vienna to Brooklyn; Cry Baby, who presides like a Queen over the decks at Le Bain and The Panther Room; and Illich Mujica, with his signature dark beats filling the dance floors at Output, Cielo, and Sullivan Room.
Creep out your friends — in a good way — with these underground tracks:
