Totally diggin' man! Good effects and stuff and I liked the original so of course I will most probably like any/all remixes of it too.
The melody and baseline may have originally been his, but what your song is and what is seems kind of far apart. You connected the melodies while he cut his up. Your song really doesn't sound to much like his. It has a more relaxed feel, but keeps the happy at a high level. At 1:06 the melody doesn't quite sound as good as the original though. Still, a good remix of a good song.
Please contact me if you would like to use this in a project. We can discuss the details.
