Hey mate, first off all I'd try getting the bass drum a little more punchy. Try EQing it and maybe some multi-band compression. You can also sidechain the bass using the kick as trigger. Also, your hi-hats are on every beat, try getting more complicated rhythms in and also don't forget to play around with different velocities, for example, stressing the off-beat etc.

You need more ghost hits to fill out the break... All i hear is a kick, snare and some hats. You need shuffles, rolls and ghost hits. Take that kick and move it around.. Also pitch up and down on your hits, it takes practice but it will work.. I'm a drum freak, i love just sitting and making breaks. It's part of the reason i don't ever finish my tracks lol...
