I think the bass line is a bit overpowered by the percussive/noise elements of the track. By EQing away the low to lower-mid range on all tracks except the bass it might be possible to give the bass more room so that it's warm timbre can be enjoyed more.
It's an interesting combination of dubby and electronic sounds.

Hey interruptor & everybody else,
I changed the EQ - not too violently though - and find it mildly better. Whatcha thinkin'?

D

Some more changes - quite significant ones - such as length and a very discreet change in tempo.
Take a listen:

Take a listen now.

It has received the real, fat dub treatment by Tokyo Tower!

And it has been mastered properly!
