I'm not really a fan of electronic music, by and large, but I guess you have a simple song there with some good-sounding melodies, though nothing about it is too catchy. I like how you try to make it change more than once, I'm a fan of songs with movements, but I guess in a short song like this, instead of having it change so much, you should find a consistent thing that works and is catchy, and then like, put twists on it that are different enough to be called "phases" of the song. Otherwise you're a bit all over the place and nothing lasted long enough to be stuck in your head.
Or maybe I'm talking out of my ass, what do I know. I also don't know much about music-creating tools, so I don't know if you're limited by the software you're using, but maybe also try and make it sound better produced (or whatever the term is).
Keep at it. Are you a music student/full-time musician or is this just a hobby?
Not bad. There are some decent ideas floating around in there.
That said, it doesn't go anywhere. You've put three different themes back to back on repeat and didn't really change them much. Yes, I realize this is almost the definition of minimalist music, but minimalism is also typified by much longer song-lengths over which the minimal ideas are given chance to develop.
Maybe try focusing one song on one of the themes and see what you can do to keep it interesting over the same length of time.
