    Cool tune, just sounds overly compressed to me and a bit samey, but even then I still quite like it.

    Nice bassline! There is a weird sub bass hit when the snare hits, is that supposed to be there? The snare isn't really snappy enough. I'd layer another high mid frequency snare on top as it doesn't cut through enough.

    The melody creates a nice suspense.

    I'd EQ out everything below around 100Hz on the Snare and boost it around 1Khz to get that snap to it.

    Hat sound really high passed you need some chunkier ones and a dirty one even if it's no audiable (but you still miss it when you mute the track). For my personal taste the kick and snare aren't loud enough in the mix, maybe pick a new snare too. Basically your drums have a lot of air but not much energy or drive.

    In terms of the bass it's got good low end but there and I like the ping pong saws but I think it needs something dirty inbetween the low bass and the saws, a filtered square maybe.

    Like the rest tho, hope this helps.
