Overkillus - Nice style, it works very good with this source. I enjoyed the bassline in combination with the rest.
Supercoolmike - Interesting start. I liked how everything is added together. The main sample is doing it.
Hoboka - Enjoyed the feeling of this song. It has a nice balance.

My favorite thing about this is the sounds and synth programming, especially the melody that comes in at the beginning; the way it bends just really does it for me. I also really like how your original ideas are interspersed and combined with musical ideas from the original. While I feel like the Dminor arpeggio material at the end from the original piece feels tacked on in the context of your remix, I over-all just enjoy your use of the source material in relation to your original material; I especially liked how it seems like the D to A material from the original starts off transformed, develops, and at some point in the song is eventually stated how it was in the original. First Place vote!
Lost in the Underground:
I have to say I really like the lead synth and how it kinda drops down and makes a lot of noise, though it gets old after a while. When I was first listening to this track, I heard it do that the first time and I was like "That's awesome!" but then it kept happening the same exact way and it was very noisy, and that much noise didn't seem to fit with the rest of the track. If it were me, I'd probably find some other way to make noise and have it contrast with that to tie it into the track more, but honestly I think just being more sparing with that noise might work pretty well too. I like how you changed the D to A plucked string/harp part from the original with the addition of the C# and B and other rhythms. It gives your track a more unique character. I also love how naturally your original melody bit fits with the source material; I was honestly checking the original after I heard this because I thought I had overlooked some of the source material to use in my remix hahaha. Over-all, while I like a lot of things about it, such as some of the noise and the some parts of the complicated drum writing in your track, it was a little too conservative to float my boat, and the quality of the sounds, drums, and synth programming weren't as good compared to Hidden Castle. Second Place vote!
This was exciting, and I look forward to doing more of this in the future!

Hoboka - Like how it almost sounds industrial. If this as the instrumental version, I gotta find the one with lyrics.
Overkillius - Yes, I do like them Eurobeats lol. Got some interesting transpositions choices here that just make me more intrigued to listen. you went totally crazy for you solo section at 2:28 ~ 3:10 and was still managable to revert to the main theme.
