What does rejection due to (lack of) "production standard" mean ? only mixing stage ?

Hi everyone, I just got my third submission to audioj rejected and here is what email says :

“After some consideration, it has been decided that this submission does not meet our commercial production (recording/mixing/mastering) standard, unfortunately”

my question is, does it mean that the “mixing and mastering stage” is the only problem ? or the arrangement could also be the problem?
any feedback on the track would be very appreciated, I really can’t seem to find the problem
thank you all
There is the soundcloud link to my preview track ( all versions included )

Hi friend,
It’s about your mixing. The bass too heavy in my speaker.
It’s sound a little like tropical track. You can listen to some stuffs of Kygo, or some playlists on youtube.
You music is good. Hope you get better track soon.

thank you very much for the time you took to listen to my track , It really helped.
So basically by stating “production standards” they mean “mix and mastering” and not the arrangement?
If so does it mean that I can mix the track again, improving it and submit it again ?
tnx again
