Way too compressed. I get you're going for loud but you really went overboard. Even the quiet sections are really loud, there's no contrast between the breakdowns and the drops.
0:14 you're missing a snare. Only using a clap won't do. The bell is panned a bit too much I think as well.
0:55 you could make a high pass automation on the kick as it's the build up (and currently has the same amount of bass as the drop)
Drop at 1:09 needs a sub bass.
Turn down the volume of the white noise you layered over the drop too.
The riser effects are too loud as well.
3.5 stars as it's a good start, but currently has too many issues with the mix.
Thank you very much for the good review! Glad to see you pointed out where I can improve! Will take to heart. :)
