Updated version :
I definitely agree'd with the kick though...Even with my sub crossover rolled off between 150-80hz the kick thumps a bit better.
Personally, I find most of the kicks to have the "thumping" somewhere as low as 60< hz depending the tightness and dryness of the waweform. I tend to save the 80< hz usually for mono low bass to amp it up just a lil bit more, and still have pretty lenghty sub on kick. Second important area for me is the ~250hz area (its pretty precise). It widens the sub kick nicely, to pack the needed "thumping".
But remember that bad sample is a bad sample and no matter of the processing, you wont get it to sound THAT great. Learnt it the hard way.
These are just personal prefrences offcourse.
In your track it still feels a bit flat and your bass seems to overpower it lil bit. I mean like the sub peak feels like its more powerful on the bass than your kick. If you have no sidechain in the bass i suggest you (maybe?) add one, or if you have check the threshold and A/R.
Composition vise you have some clever portamento/gliding thing going on but over 2:40 mix gets lil messy, when everything is going on at once.

I liked your last one more, but your percs are great. Maybe i'm not just as used to oldschool sounds (especially the kicks), but some sounds seems lil bit out of stock, but i think thats what your aiming for?
Composition vise its doing okay i guess, but i cant seem to get a grip on the lead. Either its too on the top or too much on the background. I might change it completely. The returns delays on the piano are also lil out of place it seems. AND the bass in the breakdown is single layer, I should prob add more.
