Which kick is best mixed?

Im using waves Multimaximizer, for limiting my track, but if im trying to get

the same volume as spotify tracks its getting distorted… is that because i have a bad mix? or whats the problem? :s

My theory is that my kicks might be too subby, so the artifacts shows much more on my tracks.

How do you guys master tracks like these? thanks in advance.

I like the first one better… sounds more natural.

i would try scooping out some low mid on your kick and rolling of the bass a bit.

the kick is also mixed too loud which means the other parts of your track will sound quiet compared.

what speakers are you using?

So i should scoop out some low mid ( 200 - 300 hz )

and by rolling off you mean lower the volume on my bass track?

Im using adam a5x , and as headphones im using dr.dre studio beats.
