    i'll have a listen when i get home from work but i think the first thing you should do is get some monitor speakers, mixing down on a pair of headphones isn't the best idea. invest in a great pair of speakers and you'll not regret it.

    your mix sounds ok, there is plenty more room for the bass, have you been sidechaining the kick to the sub? i'd work on your beats too, i'm not really feeling the kick & snare. I'd try balancing the drum levels with the sub and stop using headphones to mix. what drum samples are you using? and what are you using to mix this?

    for subs...
    use a spectrum analyzer...
    its hard to trust what you hear
    so low when both your ears and
    speakers/headphones roll off...
