Is this mix thin to you?

Need advice on a mix, i feel its lacking mid range information but curious for others feed aswell.

Maybe im using filters and shelfs too much.

The beat is dry at the moment, no reverb.

To me, my ears and taste..... it is not so much that it's missing mid range information, but it seems to need the help of more layers and/or instruments to ride the melody. There seems to be a lot of space that is quiet. Don't get me wrong, it truly is the silence in between the sound that makes music, but I'm hearing a little bit too much of that silence.... basically my ears want to be more distracted listening to this, to where I can focus on one part of the sound if I want, but still know and feel other parts of the sound happening at the same time. Just a tad more audible low end could help as well. Hopefully this makes sense reading it... all that aside, I can dig the beat, can picture some lyrics over it etc.

Nice beat!
Unfortunately, until you add some reverbs and delays, no one can really judge its thinness or thickness
That can't be done right now, the reason is that it is too dry.
