OpenLight - Perseverance (SirHadoken Cover)

So there's this song that I really enjoyed a few years ago and couldn't stop listening to it, by the name of Perseverance by the legend himself, OpenLight. I got it re-stuck in my head recently for some odd and unknown reason, but this time, I started getting ideas about how to change the song, and how a remix of it would sound, and the thought wouldn't stop bothering me until I sat down for about four hours and made this in one sitting. Some parts aren't very great, but I still think it's one of my best, somehow. I guess I never really set the bar very high in the first place, eh?
On a side note, THIS WAS SO FUN TO MAKE! I didn't even listen to the original song a solid time before making this, so the last like 4 minutes of the song isn't even included in this. I went a little off on my own tangent instead. :)

Here's the original: www.newgrounds.com/audio/listen/475468
I'll put it in the description so you can compare the two tracks, or contrast them more likely, but I won't put it off to the side since I didn't use any samples or clips from the original song itself.

Ok I am sorry but I actually hate this

Nothing wrong with not liking something

awsome

The intro lead isn't too spectacular, and there were a couple of wrong notes in the melody I believe. That's really the worst I have to say. I really loved that 0:07 part, where the bass and percussion grooves come in.

Thank you for this! I always love hearing remixes of my work, and you did a very good job with this one.

SirHadoken responds:

Thank you! I'm really glad that you, and you especially, like how it turned out, and that you even found this in general. I've adored Perseverance for a genuinely long while, and I'm more than enlightened to know that I haven't done a disservice, to you and to the community in general, in putting a little spin on it. :D
Mad respect to you for the unmatchable craftsmanship with which you made the original, timeless piece that shall never be forgotten or lost. :)

I like this remix. The beat is really cool sounding to me, and it fits the techno theme really well. I think the beat at about 2:18 should be close to the middle of the song since its like a drop, but thats my opinion and I like a good drop in songs. Other than that nice work. 8)
