In years past Minimal Effort released a complete Phase 1 lineup filled with all headliners, later announcing local support via Phase 2.
Things are different for this year’s All Hallow’s Eve edition on October 28th. The festival brand has released its Phase 1, with acts the likes of MK, Dusky, Damian Lazarus, Amine Edge & DANCE, Brodinski, BEHROUZ and Human Resources all on it, but expects to unveil a second announcement on September 25th with even more international guests on the bill.
Thus, while the surprises are far from over, we can at least be satisfied with an initial roster that exudes talent as the anticipation builds for the event’s full lineup to be revealed.
To help quell the anticipation we have selected 7 mixes, live sets and studio recordings, for you to enjoy and get in the mood for the upcoming Halloween celebrations. Enjoy them below.
MK – Live at Ultra Music Festival 2015
Filled with house and deep house cuts, MK’s set from 2015’s Ultra in Miami is one of his most popular online. A groovy collection of tracks that clocks at just over 1 hour and 10 minutes. Perfect for a workout or to listen on your daily commute.
Damian Lazarus – Rebel Heart On Robot Heart, Burning Man 2013
Where else if not Burning Man? The British curator and artist is in his element for this one, seemingly summoning the Playa Gods and elements to formulate a journey into the transcendental unlike no other. This one is over two-and-a-half hours long, so strap in and get ready for the ride!
Dusky – Studio Spaces, London
The only thing better than a Dusky set is a 6 hour Dusky set. Enough said.
Brodinski – West Coast Mix
Short but sweet, this Brodinski mix is hip-hop meet electronica at its finest, drawing inspiration from West Coast sounds that have long influenced the French Bromance producer.
Amine Edge & DANCE – Deep House London Mixtape
3.1M listeners, and counting, can’t be wrong. The G-House masters are in full throttle for this one, so expect bass, hip-hop cuts and plenty of jackin’ house as the duo kick it up a notch and deliver with a punch.
BEHROUZ – Do Not Sit On The Furniture ADE 2016 Podcast
Released roughly a year ago, ahead of 2016’s ADE, this podcast mix encapsulates the Desert House soundscapes BEHROUZ is so well known for throughout the world. A master of his craft, BEHROUZ captivates crowd with performances filled with musical gems and moments of genius.
Human Resources – Minimal Effort Halloween Mix
The LA-based duo have become one of the most recognized acts in the city’s new wave of electronic music artists. Passionate, tasteful and yet never understated, their sound blends elements of tech and house to precision, weaving together journeys that transcend genres yet also get entire dance floors grooving as one.
