Ambrozia is back with a Christmas album. This is the first time they have made an album not featuring a vocalist, so it means this is the first Ambrozia album that encompasses just DJ 19 and Edison as a single unit. The uniqueness of this album is through its use of handbell instead of vocals. That's why title is “Bells Of Christmas”. It’s time to deck the halls with Ambrozia!

RELEASE DATE : November 20th, 2013
The collaboration in between DJ 19 and Hideout known as Hot Station is on fire. Their recent form continues on the 19BOX imprint with a funky 1980s-inspired groove. ‘Synopsis’ is their first original in a while and uses a twisted loop backed by an old school-esque breakbeat. The track starts out with a MiniMoog-like bassline and piano chords that are backed by choral pads - further adding to the atmospheric nature of the track. Since synth work is a top priority here, this is the reason behind the track being called ‘Synopsis’. The remix comes courtesy of long time 19BOX RECORDING friend, collaborator and remixer, Thomas Penton. As only Thomas can, this remix is a chunkier affair that heads straight for the jugular and takes focus on the stereotypical ‘build it up and break it down again, only to build it up again’ dancefloor-proven formula.

Ambrozia is back with a Christmas album. This is the first time they have made an album not featuring a vocalist, so it means this is the first Ambrozia album that encompasses just DJ 19 and Edison as a single unit. The uniqueness of this album is through its use of handbell instead of vocals. That's why title is "Christmas Bells - handbell lounge” for the CD version and “Bells Of Christmas” for the digital version. The reasoning behind the separate album titles for the release is because it is not being distributed through your standard retail music store. Instead, you can rent them from GEO, Japan’s biggest DVD/CD rental chain. If you purchase the digital version, you get the added bonus of two additional tracks that are not featured on the CD. It’s time to deck the halls with Ambrozia!
