    So I had fun with this one. It started to become to complicated and I kept adding a ton of thing just to take them out again. To do this track I change the original key to f and basically did the same thing I did in my track jungle for the drop. All feedback is good especially feedback that points out mistakes. Sometimes when I hear something to much I think its good when its not.

    FYI I haven't heard the original tune.

    Could do with a riser leading into the mini-breakdown at about 1:26, right now it's just elements going away, would be more effective if you build expectations a little more, just a reversed crash or something that builds up to it, then instead of a buildup the elements drop out. I've got a bit of a cold, so I may be rambling.
    The FX hats are a little loud in my opinion.
    That reversed snare (i guess) comes in a bit too frequently, mess around with expectations, change and repetition.
    Not quite my cuppa, but everything sounds pretty tight, sounds like you're making a lot of tunes nowadays!

    I definitely considered the fx risers and down riser? I could not make them work. Not enough skill yet and now that you mentioned it the reverse snare is driving me crazy. Thank you!

    I think risers are tricky too, I never seem to get them right when I make them myself, so I stick to filtered white noise and reverse crashes a lot.

    The trumpet sounds at 1:04 onwards sound a bit lost to me.
    At 1:52 the bass is a bit overpowering the whole track, the piano is a bit lost as well.

    Overall, it sounds vibes and it has a good mixture of elements, it only the slight nitty gritty of the mixdown that is a problem. Despite this, it is still a very good remix :)

    Not really my type of tune, but can definitely hear the drums from you Jungle tune in there!

    Really like the intro , builds proper anticipation on the drop , great work on that :D
    The drop answered my anticipation but I would've went with another snare sample, this one sounds a bit flappy and noisy and takes away from the snappy break you got going imo :)
    I'd maybe also try to pull apart the drum sounds a bit more by eq'ing , try to really seperate those cymbal sounds by hi passing them so the rest of your instrumentation has more room to breathe, it's a bit overpowering now imo.
    Overall good work, enjoyed the whole of it , keep it up!
