can only listen on my laptop speakers at work right now, but...

one thing that i have recently learned is the importance of compression on the whole track. it only needs to be a little (or maybe not, depends on the track), but a compressor on the main output can really "glue" a track together. i actually learned this by putting my drums through a separate bus and compressing them. it was a real eureka moment, because even though i had good drum sounds, i didn't realize how separated they sounded until i grouped them under one compressor. all of the sudden they sounded like one drum kit! so maybe this concept can help you...

i use lots of automation... low cut freq/high cut freq volume and any modulation....along with uplifters, kicks and snares,

they all add up to bring all the energy towards ur drop.

I've got a multiband compressor on my master, maybe i should tweak it more then?
