This is pretty damn awesome! I absolutely love how it takes time to build up, then breaks down back to nothing in the end.

Great Job!
OUT NOW! My debut album 'The First Step to Nowhere', get it here! Also available on iTunes, Amazon, CDBaby, etc.

The bible says..."In the end, people appreciate honest criticism far more than flattery" so I still love you DJP. I just approached it the wrong way in words with sarcasm and bad jokes so I am sorry again. I was only trying to defend OC ReMixers that had been waiting since 2008 to get their tracks posted, not just ABG. Some people just twist words and situations. None of us are perfect and I think this community could take some direct criticism to make it a better site.

Anyway, I think it's funny that the first word in ABG's write-up is "Finally" hahaha... and Zircon's review in the judges panel rocks. That's a high compliment and those 2 artists will take it far with Zircon's words. Jordan and I have been helping ABG and Jewbei to take it far in life with their music and OC ReMix. I hope to hear more tracks by them... ABG should be submitting a new song here soon, as I think that one is better than this one.

Like I say to you ABG...nice work :nicework:

Wow, thanks for posting my ReMix so promptly :) I really appreciate it. Also stoked on a lot of the comments from the guys in the judges panel, you guys kick ass! I was going for something pretty different here (a trance track with only a minute and a half of unts?!) and the focus was definitely on atmosphere and texture, so I hope people enjoy that quality of the mix.

I keep listening to this and I don't know why? It's like Energy 52; it just grabs you and then sits you down and you chill with it. Building up expectations, but is ultimately a really chill track with some awesome dance influences. Cool concept dude, and KUDOS for pulling it off!

Well, there's times when I get a bit annoyed with the constantly looping melody in the beginning and end of the song (maybe because it's panned so far to one ear) but for some reason there's something strangely enjoyable about it at the same time. I'm not really sure what I think about that, honestly :P

Overall, though, I like the sounds you've used and your buildups and breakdowns are executed very tastefully. Good work, I'm glad this got posted! You don't see this kind of music getting posted as frequently these days, so it's a nice treat when a song like this makes it up on the front page :-)

Like in Purity ABG absolutely nails the countermelody and paints another wonderfully atmospheric space. Eagerly waiting the next ABG mix : )

This is a pretty nice mix - well-built trance, although I feel like it would've benefited from some more volume variation with the main synth in the background.

It shows how far the electronic music on the site has come though, and damn it's good to hear. :-)

Really excellent work. Wasn't a fan of the drawn out ending, but this is just all around omg great stuff.

You really took this tune and done it rite.

This works surprisingly well in this style, I'm impressed. Good listen, although I'm a tad iffy on the ending. It's good, just doesn't feel like the right fit for this track, in my opinion. It's by no means a deal breaker, and after a few listens I think I'll be fine with, it. Great work though!

By the way, the Aplus mirror leads to a broken link. I'm having the same problem with "Step into the Light" as well.

This is beautiful. I almost cried. And not a single, manly tear, I am talking open weeping over something so beautiful.

Thank you so much.

Fantastic work- this really focuses on the builds to great effect, and the only thing I think this could have done differently to make me enjoy it more is to have the beats hit harder. Pretty small potatoes as far as i'm concerned. :-)

Nice synths, and the bell sound from the original was well meshed with the new elements.
Well played, sir. :-)

This is fantastic and lovely. The original song has long been one of my favorites in all of video game-dom, and I've never understood why it hasn't received more remixes. Therefore, I'm doubly glad since you did an excellent job on it. Kudos.

For anyone considering future remixes, please do. :)

The build-up and wind-down work very well. And despite its length, the song never feels repetitive.

I'm not too hot on some of the synths that come in at ~2:00 and the piano that follows, though. It just seems...so vanilla. Like every other trance song.

I love love love this song, but....ever since I've listened to this, something has bugged me. That ticking sound that comes in at 2:21. Seems to be a liiittle off, like just behind the underlying bass beat. It might not be as noticeable had it been a little quieter maybe.

Listening to this again, I have to agree - I think replacing it completely with something else utilized differently to fill in the sound would be the best option. It takes away from the trance feel of the song greatly to me.
