    thread title is just to not put people off straight away, as this is not like the original nor is it one of those overly loud dubstep remixes with stupid amounts of bass sounds that make no sense as a song.

    feedback appreciated, cheeeeers

    I like the vibe, it's a good change up from the original... definitely got potential.

    I think the bass would be improved if you automated things with a slightly more irregular automation clip rather than using an LFO which gives identical movements for every wub. That gives you better control over the articulation.

    I also think that there could be richer chords... I don't know how much music theory you know but I reckon reharmonizing the melody would give it a deeper vibe instead of having the cheesy pop chords of the original.

    More fills and variations within each individual part would be good too. There are other ways of changing things up than just bringing in or taking away an instrument.

    Hope I'm not sounding too harsh...just thinking out loud from my first impression.
