[For Lockyn remix contest] - LISTEN WITH HEADPHONES!
I'm actually pretty proud of this track, even though I had to rush the last parts of it because the deadline is tomorrow (the 4th). The original really didn't inspire me that much UNTIL like a week before the deadline, so I put all my skills into this one piece and this is how it came out. I hope you all enjoy it, cuz I sure enjoyed making it XD I probably won't win but I still have a bit of hope. (Also, sorry for the sound effect at 1:46. I had nothing else xD)
Go suppurt te song (͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

Thanks! And yeah I agree 8)

I think this is a good remix...
However, I feel this could've been a bit better. I just don't know how.

Keep up the good work! *Thumbs up*

The intro is nice, though I wish you could have kept the complexity of the original piano melodies. If I hadn't heard the original song, it would seem fine, but since I have...
The arp is nice though.
The melody coming in is nice, but since you're just fading it in, it doesn't really appear until later in the section and makes the intro seem more repetitive than it actually is.
The next section has a nice pulsing bass.
I wasn't expecting the speed-up - nice touch.
Nice drop. In my opinion, you could have more going on, considering the vast number of stems at your disposal.
And then I realized it wasn't actually a drop as you went into another build.
The bruh was a little unnecessary.
Not sure if that key change was intentional or not. I have mixed feelings about it, as it's nice variation, but at the same time it's pretty weird.
The chords are nice, and those growls are great (you've improved a lot), but the drop seems REALLY heavy. I don't know what the exact issue is, but it seems like you're hitting your limiter constantly - it might be better if you had a bit more dynamic range on it.

Overall, it's pretty good as a track, but I wouldn't consider it a great remix - beyond the piano at the intro, I had a lot of trouble finding any bits of the original song anywhere. The original stems were all provided, but I only see one or two of them - it feels like a completely different song and not anything like the original.
Again, though, it's good as its own song, and I can't take stars away just because I don't think it's a great remix.
