I definitely think this is worth working on. This is very creative and I think if you work hard enough on anything you can make it good. Here's my suggestions that you may want to try.
I think the vocoder beatbox thing is obviously very creative and cool, but I think if you brought it in more gently it might make the song flow more. Try using volume automation, a rising LPF, or maybe even reverb dry/wet automation.
Also you could try layering the beatbox with the vocoder with the beatbox dry, it might help make the percussion more apparent.
These are just a few ideas I have. Either way, good Job!
Just curious, have you bounced that beatbox texture out and saved it yet? If I'm unsure of where to go on something, that's usually my-go-to (actually, not strictly correct. These days I don't even bother trying to do sound design while writing - I specifically build projects for generating sound, then use those to build small sample packs, then store my favorite results in my library and use them for writing at a later date).
If you're looking to develop this more, I'd definitely recommend at least getting a bounced copy into a sampler running along side your main instance! Right now there are parts doing things, but [to me] they don't feel like an expressive whole.
Maybe consider creating transitions with that beatbox sound (timestretch/put it through another granulizer/do pitch automations/filter/whatever)? That would let you introduce and release it smoothly, and you could then move between that, the pad, and your arpeggio a bit more cleanly. I think it would make it easier to compose some things (and if not, again, you'd have some dope samples to work with).
Also, I didn't say earlier, but thanks for sharing this! I'm super inspired by how cool that texture is; I definitely need to step up my granular game.
thanks guys i haven't considered putting the beatbox sample through the granulizer, yea I could probably bounce the modified percussive sound and resample the percussion to make it vary more and make it sound smoother and more perccy with a volume envelope and add other effects, kinda of a spur of the moment thing, if anything i'll probably bounce everything and take another shot at it at a later date when I have the time and the creative juices..thanks

This is pretty cool, specially the beatbox kinda spread out implying the rhythm more than stating it. Pretty lead too. Maybe add some occasional samples here and there to give things more depth. Some automation to give it more dynamics as well. Interesting track so far.
