this bass/drums loop is dead boring
kick sounds for me bit too boomy
and dont get discouraged, i am also not a world beater ...
try listening some robert babicz ,guy J and check how they make bass/kicks cooperate and stuff,plus babicz is master of compression and making unreal things to the sound with it
guy gerber also is fantastic in this genre ,good thing is to find something you love n this music artist,or label etc etc,and learn their tracks,try to recreate it ,ask questions why and how...good way to improove step by step
And as i said,i dont mean to be a di.ck ,i am also closer to beggining of this journey then to an end
