The bass sounds really boomy and lacks any sort of punch or clarity that is needed for all the runs it has.

I'd start again on this one, try multiband compression to keep it tighter in the lows if needed and a regular compressor to accentuate attacks (try 100ms attack and high ratio with subtle threshold).

If it isn't cutting, boost around 500. Carve out a spot for the kick but make sure you boost either side to compensate. Check the tuning of the kick, perhaps it would be better changed to avoid phase issues (such as if the song is in A and the kick is resonating at not-quite A or any other pitch which is not consonant with the key signature).
