Happy New Year everyone! It may be the start of a new month, but I still had one more winter themed remix that I wanted to share before going back to this series’ usual broader selection of game music remixes.

For our final installment of the winter and holiday themed Arrangement of the Week, we’re going to take a listen to another chill synth mix of some winter themed game music. This time it’s a remix by DCT of the track “Take The Snow Train” from NiGHTS into Dreams… titled “The Polar Express.”

The centerpiece of this entire track is the electric piano. It sets up a nice relaxing mood that is further established by the other instruments, particularly the synth elements. While the pads and other synth effects do a nice job of filling up the soundscape, the percussion has a very clean and up-close sound that contrasts surprisingly well against the other instruments. The kick drum is just a touch too loud in some sections for my taste, but it’s in no way a deal breaker.

Like many of the pieces that were in this winter and holiday themed Arrangement of the Week series, this remix is fairly simple. Nothing too dramatic happens in the mix, and this helps maintain a chill tone throughout the track’s duration. Once again, just a pleasant and simple wintery remix.

Did you find any cool winter themed videogame remixes, arrangements, or covers that you’d like to share? Let us know in the comments below. You can check out DCT’s “The Polar Express” on OC ReMix.
