Bad Deep: 10 Tunes to Soundtrack a Witch Hunt

July 29th 2015


In response to Sydney’s recent late-night witch hunt, Enmore party crew BAD DEEP return to the newly renovated SLYFOX for a night of Wiccan worship.

They’re bringing a coven of rad ladies with them for an all-female bill, including Elizabeth Rose, Adi Toohey, Magda Bytnerowicz, Sami Stewart and BAD DEEP DJs.

Run by Entropico, who recently transformed our front room into a ‘tropical disco apocalypse’ for the Local Live studio party with Kilter and Roland Tings, it’s safe to expect a room full of pure black magic. In the lead up, we asked the girls of BAD DEEP to round up their favourite spooky tunes…


10. Crystal Castles, ‘Violent Dreams’ (Sidewalks and Skeletons Remix)

Let’s start gently. Go on, get under our spell.


9. Dusty Springfield, ‘Spooky’ (Audiojack Remix)

This sinister and seductive Dusty reboot is equal parts sexy and spooky.


8. Grimes, ‘Skin’ (Four Tet Remix)

“Soft skin. You touch me within and so I know I could be human once again.”


7. Fever Ray, ‘If I Had a Heart’ (Fuck Buttons Remix)

Let the chanting begin.


6. Ellen Allien, ‘Flashy Flashy’ (Nicolas Jaar Remix)

The lady legend of dance music knows how to keep it deep, groove-heavy and ominous.


5. Purity Ring, ‘Belispeak II ft. Danny Brown’

The current king and queen of witch house have been casting a live spell over Sydney this week, so we must give their magical Danny Brown collab some air time.


4. Metric, ‘Monster Hospital’ (MSTRKRFT Remix)

Nearly 10 years on and this track is still as witchy and wonderful as ever.


3. Royksopp, ‘What Else is There’ (Trentmoller Remix)

That voice, those filthy breakdowns – that’s what we call magic.


2. Yeah Yeah Yeahs, ‘Sacrilege’

Ripper tune. Epic clip directed by Megaforce and starring witchy wonder Lily Cole.


1. Elizabeth Rose, ‘Another Earth’ (HWLS Remix)

This witchy femme-step goddess tops the bill at BAD DEEP: Witch Hunt. Get ready to worship her.
