In an attempt to get into a more modern genre recently, I've been looking at House - Future House, Tropical, Funky etc.
I did a House remix of a retro song I did a couple of weeks ago. Which one do you think is best,... or less worse as the case may be. ; ) Any suggestions to improve my House remix?

Bansaw,
Thank you for the review(s)! Now your music: "Let's Pretend (House version): this sounds really good! Is this a remix of a song by someone else, or you created it from scratch? Who did the vocals? She sings very well. (Retro EDM version): this sounds very good also, though I think I like the previous version a bit better. Nothing to complain about, they all sound excellent to me. Feel free to elaborate on these song/mixes. What state or country are you from?

I like them both. I'd have a hard time choosing between the two. I mean it's not like one is great and the other sucks. :lol: And when it comes to these genres, forget it. I have very little clue anyway. Great job on both! :tu:

The House Remix sounds good, not really a suggestion for improvement. Nicely done.

@aaron thanks ! I wrote the song and the lyrics from scratch, and collaborated with a singer on Fiverr.com.
@wags, thanks for the feedback, pleased you liked both. I am normally retro focused, but just trying out a genre a little more current.
@htcnext2 thanks for taking the time to comment, appreciate it! Just left a comment on your track.

Bansaw,
OK, I went to your youtube channel. Using my advanced voice recognition computers (well..... actually my brain), I calculate you are from England, yes? But wait, it says your business is in the USA? Perhaps a Brit now living in the USA? We have ways of making you talk. ;)

Aha, yes, I am originally a Brit. Actually, officially an Anglo-American. I have both British and American passports.

I prefer the House version. The production sounds very good to me. :tu:

When she hits the highest notes in the chorus, I think she could use some more support from a pad in the same octave. The vocals seem kind of naked up there.

Thanks for the comments Frantz, appreciate them. I find House easier to mix since there are less elements competing.
I'll ponder your suggestion about vocal support.

I prefer the second one ... has an almost Pet Shop Boys vibe to it. Production is good in both versions, but imho the vocal is a little too up-front in the house version. Good work all in all :)

@controlcentre, thanks for commenting. There's a guy on Youtube called Espen Craft, he sounds a great deal like the Pet Shop Boys. West End girls is still one of my all time favourites.

Like the House version more and great sound man. But the vocals I missing something mangling maybe for me its to straight thru the song.
