DCT contributes our second OILD ReMix, this time from cult classic NiGHTS into Dreams..., which should make the Saturn faithful among you happy. Even if you've never had the pleasure, Duane's cooked up a chill-yet-warm R&B jam with major-key Winter Holiday feelin' that's pretty darn accessible. Electric piano is front and center, with wide, ambient pads that stretch across the soundscape juxtaposed against clean, close percussion, snaps, and acoustic piano. The contrast between all the closer elements and the wide, distant, expansive & frosty pads is beautiful, and the overall arrangement just feels very comfortable - definitely the welcoming, festive type of ice stage, as opposed to the frustratingly difficult, barren wasteland of platforming challenge. Not much more to say, really - solid arrangement, approachable and enjoyable production... this is basically a jam that's right on time: seasonal, upbeat, unoffensive, and smooth. Excellent stuff from DCT, great follow-up to his MMX5 ReMix, and a wonderful contribution to Obligatory Ice Level Day!

Loving the train fx in the beginning. Piano sounds fine to me, btw.
A perfect fit for winter [i]and[/i] christmas.

This remix totally does it justice, too. It stays close enough to the source to make it just as enjoyable, but adds a real mellow twist to it. Instant download, instant favorite. Thank you SO MUCH for remixing this AND for putting it up on the site, you guys! <3

But to hear the instruments come together. Its more of a holiday vibe, and just vibrant.
Loving this one.

I love me some NiGHTS music, and this remix makes me want to take the snow train.

This is incredibly relaxing, production is as clean as all get up, and it just happens to completely accomodate the state of mind I'm in right at this point in time.
Great, great stuff man.
