First time entering.
I wasn't sure who Mick Rippon was, so I went straight to the .xm section of his site, being a former ft2 user. I saw 'Claytons' and remembered the name, and sure enough it was one of the first .xm's I had on my computer back around 1996/1997.
I just found out that "Claytons" ( http://www.mickrippon.com/downloads/tunes/mr_clytn.xm ) was actually a new version / remix of "Arrogant" ( http://www.mickrippon.com/mods.php?tune=mr_arrog.s3m&t=s3m ).
I started this before the rules changed to allow using samples from the original piece, so I stuck to the samplepack with one exception. I highly suggest listening to the original, if you haven't already.
Anyway, I hope you enjoy it.

The piano is nice and it mixes nicely with the organ. In general the beat sounds a bit too sharp IMO.
The distorted beat on the end is nice but I don't think it fits the song so well.

When comparing, I would say this version raises the melody more front.

The beginning sounds kinda scary, very appropriate for Halloween.
Claytons is an awesome track and you've done a strong interpretation of it with this track.
Feels jazzy with the piano with some rock drums for backup. I like the contrast between the piano and the synth portions.
The glitch portions were an interesting and creative way to go. If I had to suggest any areas to look at, the bassline felt like it could be a little louder.
Some parts felt like the low end could use more. Otherwise a very creative interpretation. Great job Irrelevnt!
