Some good musical ideas in there - shades of some 1990s Trance acts!

For me, though it didn't all quite sync together to create an overall fully compelling, driving groove.

Great potential if all the parts worked together a little more tightly in terms of their rhythmic qualities?

Thanks for comment, yes it is a mix of techno and trance.
Do you mean I should put more drums ?

No...

More that each and every part didn't quite lock together 100% rhythmically for me.

Dance music often needs an overall sense of rhythmic groove beyond just the drum beat... This comes from the rhythmic interplay between all layers... Melody, bass, chords etc etc.

Sound design and mix are very good. I agree with Layzer...not the normal arrangement I hear in techno but I think with some adjustments you'd have a great track here. The music ideas are high quality. Holding the groove a tad more, with say 16-32 bar phrases, and remove some of the turnaround and breaks it would hold the listeners attention more...at least for anyone who listens to techno :).
