Melodyne for retuning; Ableton Live for assemblage & extensive looping/chopping.

No, the contest was long over by the time I used the stems.

Beautifully dreamy from the vocals, but also with serious impact from the drum.  Very nicely done!

Nice one! Really great work, I'm pretty impressed by this! And it's very uplifting.

It sounds a little different from your "usual" work, and yet still maintains your flair.  Good job!

Very enjoyable, very impressed, if only all pop music could be this pleasant to listen to

Thanks all! I really appreciate your comments.

A very good remix/reworking! Keeps traces of the original while it's definitely your sound.
(Don't think I'd heard the original before, I prefer this track to the original.)

I agree it's an awesome remix in the sense that it truly re-interprets the stems. I know I said this before but I admire your incremental work with vocals and melodyne.
