    Sounds clean (y). But IMO, it's a bit boring. It's not bad, but like something is missing.

    I was one of those people who listened and didn't comment.
    I didn't really know what to say first time- no offence intended, just I didn't know what to say.
    I had another listen, and I think madknob is right. It's not got (not sure what the right word is) direction? Shape? Structure? One of those. It's not got the impact of a classic build-drop-breakdown-drop, but it's got too many elements to be minimal.
    Part of the problem is the housey section near the end: it's not wrong necessarily, but it messes up the structure.

    Now about the song: one thing for sure is that I really liked the drums on this track, good work! but I'd do something with the bass, make it more... prominent, maybe. It seems kind of thin, you know?
