Same type of quality on drums?/mix?

Hey guys

I try to get that radio ready sound? Tried to replicate the drums in this track, I get the patterns correct and everything but not getting the same professional quality.

Done sidechain, mirror eq, compression but not getting that clear and professional sound. Do you have tutorials to share to learn this or some advice for me in general.

You think sound selection might be my biggest issue? How do I learn to pick right samplrs?

Well, to get the "same" sound it would be a big issue.
Making a trumpet sound like a kick is hard to do.
Listen and compare with your ears (it's not all technology).

Compression is not your issue. To copy any sound that you hear, you need to replicate it and match the skills of who ever had a say in that production.

I would love to paint a copy of the Mona Lisa, but in order for me to do that, i need to practice, study and hone my skills until i have close to the same skills/techniques as the original painter did. Same goes for music production.
