In general, this is way too messy imo specifically in the kicks. For the tail, it honestly sounds like you took a saw wave, EQ'd the sub to be louder, and then default fruity fast dist. This is a bit boring because i hear this a lot in other tracks like from GPF for example, and as a producer, this is like literally the first type of tail I hear when I start making a new kick. I like the screeches however, they're more subtle but works well with in the track. You also got some stereo issues. If this is played in mono, it's going to sounds really bad because of the phasing issues. I'm not sure how to fix this however because I don't have any experience with this issue. I just accidentally put the track in mono and it sounded really bad because of that. I do also like the breaks tho, the bass there sounds a lot better too, a lot cleaner.

I would start with working on the kick. The tok (punch) of the kick I think is fine, it's the tail that needs some work. There's no way to really tell you exactly what to do, it's about experimenting and trying different things. Even things that don't logically make sense. So you're main thing is adding character and refining. When doing this, don't be afraid to add a crap ton of plugins.
So how I usually go about making kicks is I start with an EQ. Here you can add the character by boosting different frequencies. Put a distort on it. Rinse and repeat. You can always throw some other stuff in between as well, but this is a good starting place. I personally like using vocoders because it makes no sense but I get some really interesting results. Changing the wave form you start with can also help get something better too. Like if you're using a saw wave, you could try mixing it up and using something else.

Wowww finally some Uptempo on harderstate!

It's a decent track but can use some work but you'll get there!
I think the first kick has a lot of potential but at the end of that kick I hear, which is my personal taste, a unwanted crack that doesn't fit with the rest of the kick.
Second kick is kinda powerless to be honest in character.
The third kick reminds me of a MBK kick that needs more work.
And the last part sounds rather empty because the build up towards the kick is just empty.

But all with all I think you're on the right path and I'm curious to hear more of your work in the future.

compress your master channel or use a maximizer over it, to get a more harmonic sound quality in the track
