Not bad, not bad, the bass sound is especially vigorating with that tremolo or vibrato or whatever that is. I think it just needs some edge soundwise. I haven't heard the older version so I have virgin ears kind of like. I think I can see you are coming from a hiphop standpoint?
Simple, dear watson, this particular track has some good use of scarce vocal snips, which reminds me of old instrumental hiphop things and DJ sets. The sampling is good but can be repetitive. I don't think that's a major problem tho if you'd use this in a mix.
