the only real merit this track has is a tool for moving forward, keep working at it.
first off the chords are bad. holding that minor chord with no real cadence or release makes it unmusical at best.
also, the kick/off beat bass is really really dated sounding, and gets boring fast, drums are extremely basic. you need something to carry the track, whether it be rhythmic or some kind of melodic motif.
just keep at it, off to a good start if you're very new to production. the good news is there aren't any huge holes in the mix, but at the same time the mix itself is also playing it very safe, which is a good way to keep from having mix problems, but also doesn't allow much room for creativity.
agree, also too much sub going on - keep at it!
