Foggy Foliage by Chickenwarlord: Slowing it down really paid off for this. I really enjoyed the whole vibe of this song, a great listen the whole way through! I have nothing bad to say about this, top notch good sir - 1st place!
Welcome to the WildSide by Trism: The drums were really overpowering in the mix. I did enjoy the synth in the intro quite a bit, and my initial thought was "this is going to be epic!", but it left a lot to be desired.. Would have liked more layers and contrasting sections. I do enjoy your submissions, but this one seemed a little hurried :s
Kid in Woodland Hills by DrumJ8: +1 for doing a bonus mix! First thing I noticed is the grooveh drums. Tempo changes are a hard thing to make work, but I thought you pulled it off effectively. Nice job!

Chickenwarlord - I like the samples you used. Maybe you slowed it too much. It misses an ending.
Hoboka - Very good start. The part after that (before 1:17) is boring. Nice way to mix the different parts together.
Good last part, but abrupt end.
Sggod89 (+ Zerothemaster) - The song is living, there is much stuff in it in a way I like. It is noisy, but not too noisy.
Trism - Drums are too loud and dominative, but I like that bassline. The intro was good, but after a while it was destroyed by the drums.

sggod89 - production was spot on and very good quality, but the re-interpretation wasn't as good as chickenwarlord's.
Trism - well the qualative comment didn't help your cause at all - so I went in thinking that this track wouldn't be very good; luckily it wasn't as bad as you made it out to be, but I could also tell that you didn't really put your heart and soul into this one =( Less Xbox for you mister! =p

ssgod89 - this mix sounded the most whole to me and I really liked the arrangement
Chickenwarlord - slowing down the groove was a creative choice and I thought it was done well.
hoboka - it was pretty good, closer to the source track than the others
Trism - some good ideas, close to the source track and repetitive sections

2nd - Chickenwarlord: Nice chillout tune that doesn't stray too far from the source. The piano parts worked and the bongo drums suited the piece very well.
3rd - sggod/Zerothemaster: Zero's part complemented sggod's well, and I liked the song itself, but I could not for the life of me actually pick out any part of the source in it. It's possible that the distortion on the guitar thew me off but I just could't hear it. That's the only reason I'm giving this one 3rd place.
DrumJ8 - Very funky piece, loved the tempo changes

Hoboka's is takes a little bit longer for the arrangement to kicking, but it gets pretty fun around 1:48. A little bit more sonic layering/background parts to distract from the very static forefront groove beforehand would make this even better.
Trism's from :30 onwards sounds like a groove without a melody on top. Nice groundwork for a hardstyle epic, but a little too barebones.
