One of my favorite songs, so I decided to make my own remix of it. I changed a lot of the melody and the bassline, and even the arp so it doesn't sound exactly like the original, but it is my own mix non-the-less. Enjoy!

EDIT: Changed one part of the synth to make it more uplifing. Enjoy!

this has nothing to do with rave lol
but it's a cool remix, i wonder why you didn't even use the remix pack though

Very nice!
This track definately captures the rave vibe and can easily get anybody bouncing. The synths are well chosen (love that violin or whatever it is), the various percussion samples you're using match well together and the effects are really nice.
One thing you need to work on is your mixing and balancing. Whenever your cymbal hits with that reverb on it, the track gets overpowered, which is really noticable at the first second and at 1:43 for example. The track also needs some more sub in the bass. I hear that you're using a Sytrus preset as your bass synth and that's perfectly fine (hell I've used that synth so many times) but it really needs some more emphasis on the lower frequencies. which is easily done with a Parametric Equalizer in FL Studio. Search for some tutorials on mixing and compression and work on it, your tracks will sound a lot better, I garantuee it ;)
Also, I don't know the original to this song, but it could use a breakdown to give the listener some rest, you know? I can definately hear some bells in the middle somewhere, that would also really add to the rave idea.

I dig what you're doing man, keep it up!
