I like the beat and bass sounds but there is little change over the whole tune in percussion or the other instruments. Maybe a few subtle changes to the drum patterns and some evolving of the other instruments with effects to?

yeah variation, there are a few subtle changes, but could have also been a little more.

I agree with the comments above as well. For me the interest in a track comes just as much from the arrangement as from the sounds/patterns. With this type of music it sometimes means modulated sounds building up and down into buildups and breakdowns.

In terms of the drum sounds, I think the somewhat mushy clap sound might be a contributor to the non-punchy drums comment. Perhaps introducing a snappy snare along the way. It doesn't that to be super loud in the mix. The hats as well are a bit dull and lacking crispness. Try some higher end EQ and or low cut. Check out some of Goldbaby's free same packs. I'm sure there are some good punchy snappy sounds in there. Cheers.
