    Fade out the volume of the ambience / pads on the lead up to the drop, so it becomes completely silent apart from the last vocal snippet, which will then lead back into the drop nicely!

    Add an impact / explosion sound / cymbal crash on the drop. Risers / reverse cymbals / reverse snares just before the drop

    also make sure that the kick on 1st beat of the drop cuts through clearly and is as hard hitting as possible without sounding out of place in the final mixdown.

    The drums are too weak too have any real impact. Also the bass sounds have a little bit too much reverb.
