I've been experimenting a bit lately, and I've come up with a pretty chill track. Made in Garageband with only 7 tracks. It's alright I guess... 140bpm

Let's see. We've got a 2 chord progression until 0:30. Definitely a laid back trap piece. Sounds almost like trap and one of the bass music genres. At 0:30 there's some muddiness in your transition. Watch out for that.

Mix is not clipping which makes me happy. I have noticed bass is too loud relative to the rest of the track and the drums are buried though. Drums should always be the loudest in the mix. Our brains are not usually paying them any mind, so they sound quieter in a mix than do even the most faintly melodic instruments we can play with.

Your mix is sitting about where it needs to be to be ready for mastering, which reminds me, before you apply FX to the master channel, make sure your track peaks no higher than about -6 dB. Mastering services recommend this because it allows youto shape mix without sacrificing clarity. If your mix sounds good here, it will sound good at any volume, and most importantly BETTER when properly mastered.

Deffo recommend studying tutorials on the genres you intend to mix in the future, as well as music theory, mixing, and mastering tutorials. Electronic genres are very technically demanding, especially when it comes to mastering, and it's important to tackle these things as early on as you can in order to get on the radar. The more you know, the easier things will become, the more your workflow will come together, and your tracks will start sounding smooth like butter.

Keep at it!

I would switch the genre to hip hop for sure. This is a cool little piece. I like the chill tone a lot. I didn't like the drum samples very much, but aside from that this was a really fun listen. You said it's only 7 tracks but I feel like each one served its purpose quite well.
