My gift for Christmas goes to untiechi, my biggest fan. I haven't heard from him in awhile and that worries me a bit because of his status as "goth", I just hope he's not depressed or worse. He's reviewed atleast 50 of my songs and there was a point when I was expecting his comments and I always welcomed them. My first (and maybe only lol) real fan! He gave me confidence to keep pursuing my passion in music. When I saw that there was a music contest ('bout time, Tom!) and read the rules I immediately thought of untiechi. I made this song for him and I know he would like it because it's an unexpected twist on a traditional genre of music. The song has a dark edge to it, not very deep and obvious but subtle, like something isn't quite right just below the surface. I think the song I made for him reflects his personality perfectly. So this one is for you, untiechi. I hope you're doing well and I hope to hear back from you soon! Merry Christmas :)

Wow...You chose a hell of a gift man. First the song. I can really see what you mean by the subtle undertone. You can tell its there, but as you say its almost hidden. I agree with my Smidly that as a loop it could be cleaner, but just listening to it once through sounds great. Its nice that you used high notes to bring out the slightly darker music. For the most part, musicians tend to use lower notes to express darker imagery or the high notes are blatant in their dark tone. With this the high notes barely push on that edge of happy light that we get from Christmas music and the subtle dark you were looking for. Now i just wanna say thanks. I've always been a big fan of your music and looked forward to seeing new content from you. Without going into too much detail, life got busy for me. I no longer had the hours i wanted to spend on newgrounds and the backlog of material from artists i liked (especially you) grew larger. I'm happy to see your still making the content that im sure all of you fans love to hear. Keep up the good work and I hope i will be able to hear more from you in the future.

A loyal, but definitely not your only fan

I knew this track would bring you back! Glad you seem to to doing alright. I think a lot of us have had time restraints as we've grown older and life catches up to us, that's just how it is. Man, thanks for the review and I'm glad you like the track. It's nice getting a review from you, it's been awhile! Though I haven't been making tracks like I use to I still try and release them as often as possible. Well thanks for listening and for the review. This track really is for you, you own, do with it as you please lol and enjoy the rest of 2015 and hopefully 2016 brings you joy and more free time :)

Dang man if I was making a snowy game I'd definitely put this in it. Can't think of anything to say other than I really like it and maybe you could make it loop a little cleaner.

Thanks for the compliment and the tip, you're definitely right about that. Happy Holidays and thanks for listening!
