Free Music Sunday: RJD2 – The Horror

Halloween is just around the corner, which makes it an excellent time of year to break out some tunes about ghosts, zombies, witches and other spooky stuff.  High on my list of top Halloween tracks (and I do have a pretty sweet holiday playlist), however, is “The Horror” from RJD2 [m] [w].

Making a name for himself in the world of primarily instrumental hip hop, it’s perhaps not too surprising that RJD2 remains somewhat anonymous in popular music circles.  Nevertheless, it’s possible… perhaps even likely that you’ve heard his work before as his music has been used in commercials for adidas, Wells Fargo and Saturn as well as promos for TNT’s “Inside the NBA.”

“The Horror” had a commercial appearance of its own, popping up in a UK spot for Levi’s jeans.  But ultimately, the reason that it’s featured this week is because it’s a Halloween song through and through.  It has the title, it has a sound that exemplifies the horror, and it’s just a sweet little track.

So if you’re ready to set an appropriately spooky mood for the season, go get “The Horror” from Salad Days Music.  Put it in with a few other appropriate tracks to play when the kids come trick or treating and everyone will win!  Enjoy!
