This is my live performance of this song on my keyboard.

I am usually a fan of humanized notes in songs but here they sometimes sound way off. No clue if this was intended. Overall the track is too repetetive for my taste. Nothing really going on in terms of arrangement.
Well, a good performance, I would adjust some dissonance I felt, but probably is just me or my earphone

What I liked the most about the work is that every single element and all the instruments playing together being clearly distinguishable. Note: This is a quality I myself cannot achieve very often. (never?) Less is more!. Some notes: 00:10 - Pitch slide : pitch bend range could have been adjusted so that the slide could have ended on a harmonic or on some planned pitch. As it is, it felt like a bit random to me. 00:21 - And in many more repetitions, the same slightly out of sync elements in the background has added (for me) a naturalness, a human factor, a groove if you may, which is good, but the synchronization failures should also be very subtle I think, which seems to be violated a little bit here. 02:14 - and again at the end (04:18) The master bus goes competely silent abruptly, This audible silence was a little bit unexpected to my ears, because the reverbs had still time to roll. And at last, the output could have been better if some variations were added to the repetitive sections. Note: This is another quality I myself always fail to get right. I realized that the top remixes on remix.kwed.org get that right, which means more hours to spend on the project 😊 I enjoyed listening to this remix as well as the original sid. I think the originality is preserved well. Note: I am no one to judge any other's work. But after seeing how much others' comments and reviews helped me improve myself pushed me to write anyway. 😊 Oxx.

Live or not, I think you should've added more variation to the backing tracks (other than the key changes). The sound selection is actually pretty solid (really like that filtered pad). The live lead is not a whole lot demanding, so I expected some more - additional articulations, trills, slides, anything to make it a bit more interesting (not that I would be able to play it any better live, mind you, but I also don't do YT videos of me playing live). Overall, a solid effort that falls short in several departments.
