Kick definitely has some pop to it man but in all honesty it's kind of out of place/context with the mix. It's almost a bit to dynamic/pokey. I'd be throwing a limiter or comp on it to squash it in a little bit, sticks out to far.

Snares pretty good.

I would stress to not get carried away with making your drums ALWAYS punch. You should make everything in context. Sometimes certain samples or beats just don't call for hard hitting drums and placing emphasis on them in those cases can make things seem unbalanced which is what I'm kinda feeling on this one. It's pretty common when you learn a new technique to implement it on every project you do but pump the brakes a bit and think about whats required of the track or mix as a whole. That's my feedback.

As far as being able to hear the kick on smaller systems, I sampled it on my iPad before headphones and the kick comes through great, but again... Probably overkill in my opinion for this beat atleast.
