Thanks for posting this. While agreeing with Attes comment, I do really like it.
The panned hi hats would sound more spatial if they weren't panned
Until about 1:18, the base sounds so cheap and choppy (as Julian
said). Maybe a bit of decay and release would improve it. After the
said time this becomes less annoying since the base merges with the
rest, and the nice part begins (glad I was patient enough to listen
through this first minute).
I would not add compression except for the very low end, to push it
somewhat up. It seems to be the case that electronic music I regard as
well produced often looks over-compressed in waveform display, until
you zoom in and discover that it is just the fundamental bass
frequency periodically using up most of the dynamic range. Behind a
~80Hz high-pass filter, dynamics often well exceed the k14 range in
The very opposite of californication-style compression, in that the
result requires good playback systems.
Just a laymans taste, have fun producing!
