This seems less like a song to me, and more like a bunch of pieces that could be loops. Take 0:52 for example; the song completely changes and doesn't really go back. Don't get me wrong, it's still enjoyable to listen to, but if you took that segment and submitted it by itself, you'd have another very artful piece.
As a cohesive unit, I think you did capture a certain urgency. At 2:18, in the tiny drop, the break in action makes the beat hit much stronger a couple seconds later. At the three minute mark, I think you could have cut the song. The outro seems to take a little too long to wrap the song up. If you really were gearing this toward Madness, I think a better technique would be to have the music build up, explode, then fade off in just a few seconds.
The darkness in this piece makes it a pretty unique listen, and the thumping bass gives it a very addictive quality. I'm going to download this now.
