Jordan provides us with additional holiday mirth and merriment in the form of some solid electronica stylings:
"I've shown darkesword and analoq this mix... the only real beef they had was the length. But this is a club mix with the standard dj friendly 32 bar intro/outro. I did my absolute best to keep things interesting in the progression of the track. It's constantly changing and evolving but as analoq/darkesword said, it loses energy in parts mainly because of the arrangement format it's in. Hopefully this wont be a problem and wont detract from making a post on OC. I worked really hard on the mixdown and mastering as well, as this was carefully crafted in my home studio :)"
At over seven and a half minutes, it's a long'un, but I think he of mixed-case nickage does as he suggests above and varies things up enough over the course. TO provides a better play-by-play than I can at this particular point in time:
"So a club mix of the Gagazet music. I had my doubts before I listened to the piece. The lengthy intro didn't really quench my doubts either. When the melody came in at 1:12 I wasn't too fond of the delayed sound the lead synth had. It's also quite subdued in the mix, it could have been a bit louder for me. As the beat builds in, the actual sound of the mix builds up to a much nicer level as we get some sweet key changes around the Gagazet theme.
The section at 2:40 is very sweet, with the stuttery high synth. Builds into the rest of the mix nicely from 3:14 with some sweet automated filtering. The strings that come in at 3:58 I feel could have been a little sharper and stronger in terms of the powerful sound the mix had here. Two-note chords could have worked a little better, but just a little gripe. The lead synth at 5:08 is just to die for. I never would have thought that a trance version of the piece could upstage the strings and bagpipe that played that melody in the original, but this does a wonderful job."
Pretty much; there's passages that stand out more than others, but the overall presentation is consistently strong and preeminently danceable. Unfortunately, neither Larry, zircon, or myself (and probably most others) had REAL white skies or anything approaching a 'Winter Wonderland' for Xmas today, but Mr. Aguirre gives us the next best thing.

But if it makes you feel any better, this song has become my Theme for Successful Use of Bathroom! At least the first half.

I'm surprised by how much I enjoy this track; what could be a generic 'club' length song has genuine appeal and enough evolution to entrance the listener, which, after all, is the goal of 'club trance', I reckon.

I just love bLiNd's sound and the ability to create the perfect atmosphere in his arrangements.
