supercoolmike - Very nice, although I kept feeling the piece was supposed to lead up to something "bigger" if that makes sense? Also a bit of an abrupt ending, but very nice use of the new synths overall.
gercr - Not a bad "reskin" for the song. Some interesting instrument choices, and definitely a bit of an abrupt ending.
Trism - If you could have participated, I'd have put you 2nd after Cash. Love the percussion samples throughout, making it a powerful and fun rendition.
Xenonetix - Screw it, why not put a review of my own? In hindsight, I realised the piece as a whole is lacking bass, and I probably could've drawn out the middle section a bit more. I do like the "alarm" feel of the accompaniment in the 2nd half, although I probably could have made it more prominent. Sadly, time's a thing in life :P

Cash - Probably the best produced remix here for sure. And some cool reinterpretation, honestly, I see every1 else putting you in 1st, because your take is teh sexy too. And very energetic too!
Gercr - not great, but not bad. I would really like to see you put on your A game sometime - I know you can do it, as I've seen it before :)
supercoolmike - experimentation always comes with risks and rewards. Kinda mixed on this one personally. I like the percussion elements and the bass -that vibrato lead thingy is nice too. But, the energy doesn't feel preserved as well as the other people's - it's either likely to do with the velocities or some such, idk I'm bad at critiquing lol. Otherwise, this isn't too shabby mikey :D

Cash - A nice chiptune-ish track, the EDM drum track works well. I think you've strayed a bit from the MnP style here though, this is more like a PRC arrangement.
gercr - I like the leads in this but the bass and drums are a bit lacking in oomph.
supercoolmike - The evolving drums in this one work very well and the synths used compliment each other nicely. Ends a little abruptly though.

Xenontrix - I liked the ambient/atmospheric sections at the beginning and end, I was disappointed that the rest of the track moved away from that. I enjoyed some of the more intense sections. The production needs some work I think, I heard some clashing/muddiness through the track.
gercr - I'm not too keen on the sound design choices. That bass is muddying up the track. I think production in general good use some work. Still, I can hear all of the source so that's good.
Trism (bonus mix) - I like the cinematic sound here, but production is a bit lacking. It feels rigid, and not the greatest instrument quality.
