Hey cool track, I like it. Seems like ages since I heard the catchy original so it was a pleasure to listen to

First small tip is have a little lead-in (silence) at the start. I first thought there was a spike or freq difference on the first kick sound which could of been due to heavy processing but is probably a streaming artefact.
(replaying the track sounds like it is already buffered).

I really like the twisted main section. Personally I would have that section come before the layered section - or - make a 'better' transition into the drop that comes in first. Maybe extend a break-down/build into the drop, dunno, just felt too sudden. Hard to explain

Also the layered main verse sections seem a little bit out of sync with the kick drum. I can imagine that is not easy to improve on though.

The mixing all sounded great to me on my system. Loud and proud as fitting the electro style, along with the dirty remix cut-up parts too.

I got snookered in by the stem, too. Like TL it's been a while. It was great to hear those trademarked harmonies again. In all, not my thing, but I know good work when I hear it. Well done.

Thanks for all the feedback, I appreciate it.

I spent awhile working on the tune, and im almost sick of it, hah.

As for the rights to the original, I cannot answer that question at this time.
