As a Jewish guy reviewing holiday music, I am at a disadvantage because I don't have the memories that most people associate with Christmas. It's as if the producers of Holiday Remixed took this into account and created a CD of tracks meant to inspire memories rather than enforce seasonal traditions with a variety of electronic styles including hiNRG, jazzy grooves and piano house.
Every holiday season brings a new batch of pop stars taking on the catalog of Christmas classics. But have you ever wondered what europop instrumental versions of holiday classics would sound like? Neither did I, and as such, Club Christmas came as a welcome surprise.
