Outside of adding variance to the drum hits and doing a bit of humanizing to them the biggest thing would be bass attack. It's a big sound but there's no definition to it.

I assume that the drums are midi or triggers due to how regular they are. If they are midi change the volume values of the notes and do a bit of moving the notes around a little. Here's a short video on that.

For the attack of the bass try adding some high end and mids to it while backing off on the low end some. I can hear some of the attack around the 1:08 mark until the pause. You could do a bit of a frequency sweep and find the frequency range of the attack (that's not annoying) and the increase that a bit. Just a little notch up.
