"We're really excited to have Gene Micofsky and mojera contribute to the series for the first time. We've known Mitsuto Suzuki of mojera for some years and know he's a huge Christmas music fan, so it was exciting to have them on board. I think fans will also enjoy an original Christmas track by VECTORDRIVE and Ryan Postlethwait, 'Sunset on the Drift' along with the rest of this year's offerings!"
