I first discovered the original track through Sunlust, funnily enough. Of course a lot of other people have as well but I think I'm the first to take a shot at remixing this version. Yes, I know mountain pass and mountain road are 2 different songs and that this version mostly matches the latter, but I named this one after the original because it matches the theme of the album I'm going to put this on.

Sorry if this is loud. I based it off of a midi that has a lot of detail to it. I tried to give every part its fair share in the mix, which gives this track a very unique sound when compared to my other works. I put in the ambient intro and outro in order to magnify this effect, if not make the whole thing feel more like a journey through an actual mountain pass that leads to like some epic boss fight or some shit. I'll def give the mixing another look over once I get back to this.

Overall, I think this is my best dance track so far. Leagues better than Sand Castles, which is apparently my most popular song from last year? I really don't understand why but hopefully this track can surpass it.

PS: Thank you for all the support, Abby.
