Halloween, a contraction of “All Hallows’ Evening”, is a yearly celebration observed in a number of countries on October 31, the eve of the Western Christian feast of All Hallows’ Day. It initiates the triduum of Hallowmas, the time in the liturgical year dedicated to remembering the dead, including saints (hallows), martyrs, and all the faithful departed believers. Typical festive Halloween activities include “trick or treating”, attending costume parties, decorating, carving pumpkins into jack-o’-lanterns, lighting bonfires, apple bobbing, visiting haunted attractions, telling scary stories, and watching horror movies. Because of this, CiNENET Germany presents the „Halloween 2015 | ‘Trick or Treat’ Horror Special“ playlist with films like “Satanic Halloween”, “The Secret Village”, “Der Teufelspakt”, “Das Bildnis des Dorian Gray”, “Horror Creek”, “Menschenfresser”, “Halloween 5″ and “Dracula im Schloss des Schreckens”.

Linda Freeland hails out of Queens New York, and now since 1983 lives in the Rhein-Main metropol of Germany. Linda can look back on numerous releases with wellknown producers of the German Dance and House scene. Under her own name she released tracks which hit the international clubcharts. The succesful co-operation with DJ and producer Ralf Holl from Frankfurt over the last years has now opened a new chapter. They gave Sade’s 1984 classic hit ‘Smooth Operator’ a new up-to-date sound. The result is a pop/house version, which has its world premiere on August-23th-2015 at the German TVstation ‘ZDF’ in the Show ‘Fernsehgarten’. A pulsating beat and bass; a guitar which picks up the core of the original song, and the voice of Linda gives the new version a very special energy. Further two club tracks, which were already tested (with success to the max) in several German clubs. ‘Smooth Operator 2015′ from Linda Freeland is really infectious and memorable…

The ‘Yellow Loop’ EP from Italian producer Santos is the latest release in This And That’s nine-part series exploring the relationship between music and art. ‘Detune’ is a laid-back groover of an opener; a thudding bass, tribal-esque percussion and pitched-down male vocals provide the build-up into blissed-out synth chords with a touch of balearic feel-good vibes, whilst ‘Give It To Me’ builds on the tempo with its persistent bell, bouncing drums and eponymous refrain. ‘Rare Boogie’ acts as the centrepiece of the EP; a masterclass in a long-play danceable record, the ethereal breakdown halfway through its nine minutes leads up to a powerful, shooting buzz-saw synth. Riva Starr’s remix of ‘Rare Boogie’ meanwhile, remains faithful to the original’s defining characteristics, whilst injecting a touch of fun – club-ready jacking hi-hats, a bumping bassline and extra echoing around those monstrous synths both enhance and emphasise the record’s original features.

Mr. Dello is a certified sound engineer who is passionate about electronic music and DJing since he was a teenager. As a music professional his style stands for excellent producing skills using analogue machines for his pure and deep techno tracks. He comes from sunny Lefkada, Greece where he holds a residency at the famous beach club COPLA. For this EP, he provides us with two tracks: „Test of Time“ is hypnotic and feels like dancing on a beach when the sun is rising. „All that Matters“ is darker but nonetheless inspiring with its great Dub Techno references. The EP is completed with two remixes. The first one comes from Michael Klein, an upcoming star in the scene who is supported by artists like Pan-Pot, Dubfire or Laurent Garnier. He takes „Test of Time“ and turns its uplifting hypnotic feeling in a darker, more driving direction. The second remix comes from Autotune, natives of the Berlin Techno movement, who released on various labels like BPitch Control, Fumakilla and Dantze within the last 15 years.
