The 2016 Jamaican Halloween Spooktacular - Coming October 1st!
We're already into September and as you know with October fast approaching that means my thoughts quickly turn to Halloween. And with that said, I am happy to announce that yes, there will be yet another Jamaican Halloween Spooktacular coming at you on October 1st! The duppy box is running thin on spooky selections but there is still enough quality tunes in there to warrant giving this a go for at least one more year. And like years before, it's gonna be one tune for every weekday in October with an immediate download link. All the howling wind, clapping thunder, werewolf howls, movie clips and wacky tidbits you've come to expect from Distinctly Jamaican Sounds every time Halloween approaches, will be available once again - as well as Roger Wilkerson's custom comic book covers for each track! Now, since I'm involved in this yearlong project of posting a song a day for 365 days I was conflicted on how I would proceed but I have decided to keep the 365 Day Challenge going in harmony with the Spooktacular. I figure with the yearlong project October will give me a chance to select a bunch of songs from previous Halloween mixes and present them in their unaltered glory while giving you a completely new mix for 2016, one track at a time. Like last year, I'm going to see if I can recruit some guest bloggers so I don't lose my job for spending hours of time at work writing up music. So if anyone wants to take a stab at contributing to the 2016 Jamaican Halloween Spooktacular, shoot me a message and I'll gladly open the floor to you when the song you pick falls in the mix. Thanks everybody for your continued support!
