Interesting; Jimmy goes in a different direction here with some uplifting orchestral-on-tracks work that gets joined by tasteful electronica and beats; perfect for spreading the holiday cheer, as it has sort of a wintry feel to it. Backwards strings intro, followed by some peculiar high-pitched fuzz, followed by a saloon piano with phonograph recording scratches. Notice how the detuned saloon piano is cross-faded with a normal piano so that the detuning effect doesn't go away abruptly, but is smoothly replaced by a cleaner patch; this is the type of detail Mr. Hinson always gets right. This piece was actually what triggered Larry's nomination of Jimmy to the judges panel, where he's been working out fantastically for awhile now, so it's being posted a little belatedly, but hasn't lost any of its sheen. It's also worth noting that Jimmy didn't attempt to use his newfound super-amazing judge capabilities to expedite its posting - with great power comes great responsibility. It's easy to see why Larry was impressed; BGC's former work has been nothing to sneeze at, but I think he reaches new levels of not only production and arrangement, but the synergy between the two, with this piece. There's moments here that are startlingly beautiful, which sound as if they are underwater and crystalline and warm and cold simultaneously. The piece concludes with an extended organ section, but not before it's culminated in a celebratory amalgam of repeated, plucked articulations, swirling pads, and rising and falling monoglide synth lead. It's interesting, because both Jimmy and Ziwtra have paid FFA great homage with their mixes to date, and their styles aren't too awful dissimilar - lots of moving, flowing parts that play off one another, and keen ears for mixing myriad electronic textures into an appealing timbral stew. This ReMix not only adds to that trend, but also continues Jimmy's track record of releasing intricate, thoughtful mixes worth revisiting to unlock all the details.
