This is a wondrous debut for Krzysztof Pretkiewicz, aka Nitrous Oxide. His distinctive style (dropped in 2013) coloured his music from the inception.
North Pole (Original Mix)
The cryovolcano begins with uplifting orthodoxy, meaning iteration, very little genuine emotion, & not much spice, nor thought. Filled with his signature electronic style, this nine minutes is listenable. Nitrous Oxide is one of the too few artists to include their electrotrash in their climaxes; his inclusion enhances the experience. North Pole is a bland release for him, & Anjunabeats.
The album edit has new electrotrash. That is all.
Frozen Dreams (Original Mix)
Frozen Dreams is seraphically lachrymatory, with a caliginous fortitude expressed in 8 minutes of electronic ardour. It is a tragedy that this has no remixes. How could Marton choose North Pole over this? How could North Pole be selected for Volume Four over this? How could North Pole be selected for an album chillout mix over this? This easily outshines the A-side by a million magnitude.
North Pole (Sunny Lax Remix)
Leventé Marton, aka Sunny Lax, remixed North Pole for Ten Years Of Anjunabeats, & as expected of that disastrous compilation, this mix is predominantly homogeneous. Marton's minimal effort resulted in a higher-pitched mix with the exact same tune. Such banality is far beneath his talent.
