This is probably too ‘experimental’ for my tastes, but at least it sounds quite clean and what really caught my attention were the nice little drum rolls (e.g. at 1:06) – those are great.
What I enjoy at this style of music is usually the sound design – specifically weird twisting basses. And that’s imo what’s missing from yours. You have played quite a bit with the drums and percussions, however, there seems to be a lot of “empty space”. All these little breaks are screaming “put some crazy bass in here right now!” 🙂
Also, I never wrote this before (afaik)… I think your dynamic range is too high :p Sure, you shouldn’t copy mine (which is too low), but yours feels a bit like a rollercoaster where you never know how loud/quiet will the next hit be. I would apply some compression.
