So I've been interested in publishing a remix, usually most of my free time is just me playing around with a tracker/workstation: making some really experimental stuff, composing strange melodies or just plain messing with different time signatures and making them sound right and cohesive enough.
This isn't the case with this remix. I'm trying to make it sound as listenable and polished as it can be, so feedback would be extremely helpful.
The track which this remix is based on is "DuClare Chateau". One of my favorites from that soundtrack. Also thought about doing "The Synapse" but trying to tackle that... yeah, I would not do the song's justice.
Hopefully y'all find it enjoyable enough to not qualify it as straight up trash.
Dex got 1st with 14 points.

Dex PM me for round 74
Had 3 entries and 4 votes, not bad. It was a very close round too and very fun entries to listen to
PlanarianHugger did another song for PRC, a bonus mix this time (as winner of PRC346).
GCJ did a short but interesting song. Still he only got 12 points, ending with the last place wooden spoon.
Dewey Newt was the winner of PRC347, but now ends with 15 points and second place.
And the winner of PRC348 is Dex with the maximum 21 points.
Dex congratulations. A strong way to start PRC. You may select the source for PRC350. Send the source to me (with a MID/MP3 file, otherwise send a second source with a MID file) by PM, other options are PM me @ ThaSauce or by e-mailing to email@example.com (I prefer a PM @Ocremix). Send your source as fast as you can, but before next Monday (29 May), 10:59 AM ThaSauce time (18:00 UTC, 19:00 GMT).
You may select any source for any game, but not a source with an OverClocked remix or a source which has been used in PRC before. An overview of the past PRC's can be found in the following links:

Yeah, this sounds pretty vanilla and dry. Gario and Larry nailed the issues well here, the drum groove is as basic as it gets, and though later is filtered out, I think it doesn't do enough to keep things fresh. The original did more with the drum writing to keep things in line with the arrangement, even. Ending was a bit sudden but, it could've worked in a better crafted song. The mix though, has this sense of emptiness even though it does have enough elements to fill up a track, it just needs some kind of padding or reverb to fill up the gaps. The bass also felt very bland to me. I think this needs several production passes to get it over the bar, bringing the whole mix together with sounds that sound less cheesy and fill up the spectrum more, and with more intricate drum sequencing/detailing.
