I did this for someone else, so it isn't out of vanity or any particular love for the original, but it took me a little while so feedback is always appreciated: Good/bad *and* ugly! :)

Most notably this is the first tune I've done that makes heavy use of Reaper's crazy routing abilities. The big synths and drums are all running through a bunch of channels with different sounds/effects, and all leading their own mini-busses with master effects for each mini-bus. Sound design tips are therefore *especially* welcome!

Here is the original, it was one of the earlier tunes that I've done:

Thanks for the listen!

It is a fun listen, very busy, and a big sound. It's kind of like vintage 80's club stuff by Prince or Frankie goes to Hollywood. Just a little bit rough here and there, I'd have to listen a few more times before I'd advance any advice though. Someone else may be more helpful or qualified, I'm sure.
