Love it
Really catchy and moving, almost a bittersweet feel to it. If someone made a dance version with some heavy bass, I'd then most likely would become addicted to it.

What would you suggest?
This is outside my normal genre. What would you suggest in the way of bass?

Personally
I'm a fan of the europop style dance music, like Basshunter and others. Usually in dance music what does the trick is having a solid bass on the upbeats, rather than the down beats. Usually the notes are made of the root note of the chords used. For instance, if I used C major, then I would use C as the note. Warning, I don't find many of the bass instruments on GB impressive. There's a particular bass loop you can find though within GB and save that as one of the bass instruments and it's pretty good. If you were to go for a dance feel, I'd go for more of the synthesized drum machines or effected drum kits. And then vox would be cool if you ever wanted to, but it also stands nicely on its own without vox. Hope you find any of this useful! I like what you've created here!

stretching out
Welcome to Macjams and to trying new styles... I've learned tons and expanded my appreciation of different music styles by listening to all the amazing artists here. Anyway, sounds like you have a pretty good feel already, this is nice. You do a good job of changing the pace here and there. As CFG suggests, you may want to add more "thumping bass" if you want to head more into the trance/dance genre. But this is certainly a great piece of music.
ttfn,
Drakonis

Very cool. Nice mix of sounds. Plenty of room for a vocal. You might want to look into getting one of the talented singers here at MJ to add a vocal.

One suggestion regarding the mix. You might want to play with panning some of the sounds a little wider to the left or right. Everything seems pretty much to the center.

Welcome to MJ.

pan
I guess what I meant to ask was, what is the idea around pushing things out from center? How do I decide what tracks to move? What am I aiming for?

General Rule of thumb
But it's all a matter of taste. Bass should be up the middle along with the kick drum. If you have more than one chordal instrument (say piano and guitar or a synth and an organ) Put one to the left (maybe 9 or 10 o'clock) and the other to the right (2 to 3 o'clock). Just play with the pan control and have fun. Think of the stereo field as a stage. You want every musician to have their place on the stage.

Welcome
I'm glad I came across your work here. Nice piece with judicious use of breaks and instruments. I enjoyed this one and hope that the answers you got from the other commenters have satisfied your curiosity (and your curiosity is great, by the way).

All the best,
Doug
