    I found the stems to this but threw all away but the vocals.
    Found the midi parts and then painstakingly re-built each track using my favourite VSTs.

    So not a remix as such.
    A technical exercise.

    Nice work! Everything vsts, nothing sampled? The three notes (E, C#, D) before "relax" sound super convincing. What did you use?
    :wink:

    Youtube eventually will flag the song and do one of two things: tell you the revenue from ads will go to the label (most labels have such deals with youtube) - or that the copyright owner requested removal and they will award you with a strike (some labels are nasty).

    Also, you have no bass in the song - at least on laptop speakers. If you want to improve your technique, add this to the list: more upper content for basses, so they properly translate to small speakers.

    I think it's obvious that the only purpose of using youtube is that it allowed me to upload unlike the other services.
    Neither was I was I overly concerned about how the bass sounds on laptop speakers.

    In a parallel universe where this wasn't just a hobby, then I'd let a mastering engineer worry about such things.

    Nice, very good job. I really like how the vocals sit comfortably on top of the rest of the mix, it sounds a lot clearer than the original.
    Personally I would like the bass (particularly the distinctive 'bow-bow-bow') to be a bit higher in the mix. Also the guitars could be a bit higher IMO.
    But again, fantastic work. Thanks for sharing.
