* Thump could be shortened, giving enough space for the next thump to have more dynamic impact. As it is it's too omnipresent.
* Very little happening in the low mids, resulting in a thin, thumpy-sounding mix
* Musical style isn't exactly my thing, so I can't comment on that
* Maybe a little too much excitation on the master? Up to you :)
* Nice intro.

The production does need something injected - it does seem to lack some dimension, although @2:50 thats a nice pluck that pans, so things like that help.
I can't quite put my finger on whats not quite right. I do know that you might benefit from putting something in the higher octave range like a high-string.

I really like the drive in the bassline+kick.
The pluck should have a bigger role in the beginning, leading up to the break. It's to good to have in the backseat :)

At 04:12 the hihats seems to be pushed back and not as prominent in the mix as it is before the break.
IMO the tune loses some energy after the break.

I am on a new pair of head phones that I really haven't figured out yet, BUT, the song seems a bit "muffled", imo?

I hope you don't see this as all negative, it is a really good tune! :)

I like the dynamic mix, but either the intro is too quiet or the kick is too loud when the kick comes in. I had to turn my volume up for the intro then turn my volume down when the arrival of the kick.

The song is ok. It's very reminiscent of System F - Out of the blue and Gouryella - Gouryella and Rank 1 - Airwave. (i don't know if all three of these songs are Ferry Corsten). The first part of the song remind me a bit of psy-trance, i'm just mentioning because i don't know what your intention were. Actually i listened a second time and i like the song, well done. I can actually hear Rank 1 - Airwave when i listen your song tho!
