First off, sorry for the wait on a review for your piece, H0us3C0rP3. That said, I'm on the judges panel, so I can give you a bit more authoritative of a POV.

On the judges panel, this might get dinged on the production side for some of the synths/sounds being plain, as the synths were pretty vanilla, but the arrangement was personalized pretty well, and I think you did a good job using these tools. It's clear a lot of care went into varying up the textures and providing contrast from section to section.

More melodic interpretation would have been a plus, but no hate on going for something structurally conservative as long as other aspects were significantly treated with interpretation. Here, the beats and tempo were changed along with the sound palette to help give this a different enough feel.

Props on not retreading any arrangement ideas until just a brief reuse of some of the verse material about 3/4ths of the way through. I enjoyed the extended winddown for the close; it seemed like it might just repeat the initial notes from the source until a fadeout, but you changed the lead sounds a couple of times while reducing the volume to keep presenting creativity right until the finish.

If you haven't submitted this one already, I can't guarantee it would pass (because I'm only one judge), but this would likely have my vote. Nice work!
