I don't know if that snare works with the song, has a bit of a box like sound tone to it. At least to my ears. I'd maybe add a sample under it to give it more of a tail and probably carve out some of the mids. I'd say roughly 500Hz maybe 400.

I'd give the drums as a whole some reverb. Especially at the intro section. Will make it less obvious that the drums are programmed and give a kinda played in a room feel. Will also blend in with everything else going on as all the instruments are swimming in verb.

There is also a clicking sound in the right speaker in the intro. Not sure what is causing it but I'd check and see what you have panned on that side.

Noticed a few more things but I don't want to overwhelm you with my nitpicking.

That bass tone is pretty killer I will admit.

Thanks for the feedback!
Yeah the snare is what I've been struggling with the most in my mixes so far, this is the first I'm kinda half satisfied with - definitely still lots of room for improvement though. I'll definitely try pulling some more out of the mids.

If you have any other thoughts I'm not easily overwhelmed - any comments on the guitar tone? I'm still unsure of it
