In what has become something of an inadvertent tradition, here is my seasonal mix, this time themed after the cold of winter.
I tried to keep Christmas out of this, as I consider Christmas music basically its own world, but one Christmas tune did sneak in--the excellent Funtastik library has some great tracks for Christmas specifically, so I had to put on on here: "Christmas at Last"! A few other library tracks also made the cut, such as the futuristic "Sky 2" by the brilliant (and recently passed away) Alan Hawkshaw.
I've also included a selection of tracks from various game releases, mostly (rather on the nose) from ice or snow levels, but also just anything that captures my imagination and makes me think of winter or cold weather. I once again had to include the stellar soundtrack to "Miss Kobayashi's Dragon Maid: Burst Forth!! Choro-gon☆Breath", as well as the fantastic Sonic Frontier soundtrack (I need to play this game if the soundtrack is any indication!)
The rest of the tracks are a selection of various recent digital fusion releases, such as from the criminally underrated Buzugu, WaxTerK's latest compilation of heavy hitters, and Metaroom's entry to PURE MIDI.
Finally, I would be remiss not to mention that if you want more winter-themed music, Infloresce held a 2-day, 4 hour festival of digital fusion from the entire community, and the VODs are available on Twitch!
