Ok, as promised I'll drop a review.

First of all that vocal line at the beginning is really good. Immediately catches the interest of the listener
The progression is really nice, and I liked you're choice of sounds. The melodies are really catchy and interesting.
However, the drop is very weak. The main problem is that too much of the drop is introduced in the buildup if you get what I mean. Personally I wouldn't have sidechained the lead before the drop hits. I know that a sidechained lead sounds awesome, but you really want to spare it for the drop. This way the drop will feel a lot more powerful. Also I think you should either completely pull out the bass in the buildup, or substitute it with a higher pitched one. Right now it feels like the drop and buildup has an almost equal amount of bass, thus the transition becomes weaker.
Generally what I'm trying to say is that the power of a drop is dictated by the mellowness of the parts that lead up to it. That's why professionals use a different lead or introduce a different melody during the drop, this is what makes them sound so powerful.

Also, the mix is pretty muddy. You boost the low-end too much throughout the track, making it sound way too subby. The only elements that need to reign in the low-end are the bass and the kick. If you want them to stick out, try cutting the low frequencies from all other frequencies. The most important part of eq-ing is that you have to cut ALL unwanted frequencies, even if you think they don't exist. For an example, your lead really doesn't need any low end at all, as the bass takes care of that, thus you should cut the lower frequencies from the lead. If you do this to each and every element in you're mix, you'll discover that everything will sound a lot more cleaner. In addition this will also allow the kick and bass to shine freely in the low-end.
This includes the vocals as well, right now the vocals really drown in the mix and are hardly audible. This is because the other instruments clashes with the vocals constantly. Find a frequency range were you wan't the vocals to shine, and make sure that you give it room to shine there.

Overall the arrangement is well done, and the interest is kept up throughout the track.
My main advice for you for now would be to work on you're mixing. I get the impression that you have big ambitions when it comes to music production, which I think is great, but even if the composition is great, it won't matter if the production quality is not up to standards.

Last, but not least I want to advice you to try experimenting a bit more. Don't try to make another run-off-the-mill dance track, but try to discover you're own sound and you're style. Find what differs Infinity from other producers. I know this can be difficult, but I believe it's very important.

Keep up the good work! You have a lot of time, don't try to rush yourselves in an attempt at becoming professional quickly. Take it slow and focus on improving you're music :).
