RENDEZVOUS Presents 'GIALLOWEEN'



Dear friends, RENDEZVOUS is proud to present our Halloween offering...'GIALLOWEEN'!

 If you are like us, you have no shortage of Halloween-themed mixes on your playlist. This one is meant to be enjoyed at the end of your evening...perhaps with a glass of, need we say, J&B?

This mix features, as the name suggests, Italian giallo selections, with a couple occult & poliziotteschi tracks sprinkled in for good measure; however we tried to veer away from the standard, run-of-the-mill offerings. For example, you will not find any Goblin on this mix (nothing against them...we LOVE Goblin!!), it's just that we figured they're probably on every other mix you have cued up for today. What we have here are not only uncommon title themes, but more obscure cuts - incidentals off library albums, and a theme taken direct off a battered VHS tape! Happy Halloween & enjoy!

 **Mixed & compiled by Carlos Rossi & Alfonso Carrillo

Death Waltz Recordings Returns to RENDEZVOUS!!


Join us on Friday, May 9th for a very special evening as our good pal (and sponsor) Spencer Hickman of Death Waltz Recording Company makes his return to RENDEZVOUS! The last time Mr. Hickman was in town was for last October's Beyond Fest and boy did he play an amazing set for us (check the SoundCloud link below). If you were with us that evening, you know what a fun night that was. The man comes with RECORDS and this evening, I'm sure, will be no exception (rumor has it perhaps an all 45's set?)! AND as an added bonus, our good friend Dina Juntila will be joining us as well! Many here in L.A. know her as a founding member of the Dr. Who crew, but what some may not know is that Ms. Juntila was also the music supervisor for Xan Cassavetes' 2013 vampire film 'Kiss of the Damned'! She brings with her an incredible wealth of musical knowledge that seamlessly transposes itself into her DJ sets. And finally last, but definitely not least, we will be screening THREE giallo and cult erotica films on the huge projection screen, courtesy of our good friends at Severin Films and Distribpix Inc.! This will be one for the books...don't sleep!!
