    Nice catch :).

    And yes, I deliberately "sampled" that synth riff, which actually by the way is really from ABBA's "Gimme Gimme Gimme", which is the riff Madonna sampled in the song you're referring to. It's fully intentional, and I'm glad someone caught it :).

    I replied on SoundCloud. It's not much but I think it should be able to help you.

    @Synx; Awesome! Love the drop at 3:37. Great use of the vocals! Although I feel like the sound of the the wobble is a bit too loud (it plays at 1:06). To me, it should have the same loudness as the wobble before it. I'm getting the feeling it's a bit louder, which makes it feel a bit out of place. Could be wrong though.

    A lot of good stuff this month! I'm liking these remixes waay more than the official BID remixes, go figure.

    Appreciate it man. I would work on it more but I'm out of town and don't have any of my equipment/programs with me. Maybe I'll work on it when I get back but it's already got over 200 listens, so I dunno if I wanna take it down, lol

    No prob, I just say what I think. I re-listened and wondered also if some of the drum rolls couldn't have been replaced with some kind of diverse percussion pattern to make it more intense, since they become too predictable after 2 minutes into the track.

    @ Decay, Thank you!
    Actually, it was how the frequencies the wobble carries that made it sound that way. It cut through all the other sounds in the beat making it more heard.
    This was mastered in a skrillex mindstate. :L

    great entrys... and there are almost 20 days to go :D

    @synx awesome work - I love the wobbles
    @brett yours beats the Paul van Dyk thing :)
    @Paolo I already have some of your remixes in my iTunes - yours are always pretty good
    @derek nice one... madonna (or even ABBA) never sounded so good^^

    This is my favorite so far... just love the rock feel + these bleeps/clicks (maybe a guitar?) which add a electronic feel too... really good work!!!
     



  14. Okay, so I was going to do this remix contest, but unfortunately I couldn't finish my remix on time due to holidays.
    So here is the unfinished version of the remix. It could've been a lot better (AND COMPLETE), but yeah. This is what I got so far.
    Oh, and I guess I'll use this as an entry. Even if it isn't finished. Enjoy.
