This is a happy, full sounding trance/techno song. To quote my friend, "I like this. It makes me feel happy while telling me to do something constructive."

Not too bad

Overall not too bad. Once again it's got a quirkiness to it that I like.

I will question your bass line though. I'm not feeling entirely sure about the use of the first inversion of the IV chord. Landing on that note each and every time makes it sound a little odd. Especially since it resolves from that to a I chord. It does sound a little weird after so much repetition. Once in a while it's good to give a solid root to the chord changes. It's not frowned upon or anything, I just think that the overuse of that same inversion throughout the song doesn't quite anchor the bassline enough.

And I think the first transition was a little sketchy. It's not quite smooth enough. It kind of sounds like the track stutters for a second and then the drums come in quite awkwardly. Trance definitely needs an element of continuity from one part to the next, which is why you always hear a lot of those backward cymbal sounds because they have the sense of legato continuity. That stutter in the first transition didn't quite do it for me.

Overall not too bad. I would explore different ways of making that loop to include the root of the IV chord in the bass somehow. That middle bit that uses the same chord progression but different bass line (that one was a Ia, Vb, and then a IVb - PM me if the music terms I'm using are confusing) was a bit of a change, but still messing too much with the inversions didn't make it solid enough. Perhaps consider a middle section with roots instead.

Hope this has been helpful. You've got a style for quirky tunes, keep it up.
