for me, being a happy hardcore artist for a couple of months now and having some solid work done i could say this is a great attempt at the style, and just a few things are missing. First of all, turn up that lead, and put some modulation on it. The lead has to be louder then what it is at now. The intro is great. the part at 115 when the lead becomes gated was a good idea too. the endings ok, i would put in a piano breakdown before the ending. The kicks are also to weak in the drums. HHC kicks have to be hard and strong. I would recomend searching google for hardcore or hardstyle kicks if you dont have any. and i would put a compresser on the kicks also. One last thing, im not really sure about what speed this is at but most/ mainstream happy hardcore is usually 170 - 200 bpm, give or take 10 bpm.
Besides those 3 lil things though , this is great =D
check out my work if you got time =D
