bash my sub, reverbs and depth

hey guys, my first time posting here - i've actually been reading here and there in the forums, since, like all of us, i'm not satisfied with my mix and always looking for more knowledge.
i've been wondering on whether im missing a technical side, or an emotional and perceptive side (probably a bit of both).
I guessed the best way was for you guys to listen to what I have, and let me know what you think.
Basically the things that i think im not getting a hold of are a balanced and complimentary reverb use (on different synths AND drums), and steady, not too punchy not too spread, sub bass (oh that ****in sub bass is killing me)

The sub - i never, ever in my life got it right. It's always either too loud, too low, too distorted, too plain, not steady enough, too steady....

OK, i can keep on talking about these stuff but i'd rather have you guys listened to my **** and let me know if you hear anything thats obviously wrong. I'm aiming for a kind of a dirty yet powerful and relatable sound. I come from making hiphop beats, to incoorporating electronics in those beats, to full fledged electronic "trappy" sound.
And yes im very influenced by Lunice, Eprom, Hudmo, Baauer (not the too techy stuff). I love the sounds of these fellas since they are very relatable yet so very refreshing, super hard hitting yet very clear. The sub is always on point, the reverbs are used very wisely and accurately.

Ok cut that, here are my beats, i feel like they dont sound bad but they dont sound accurate enough, maybe its the arrangement? And i feel like in a club they'll sound pretty small compared to other beats:

"clackin clams" - probably my favorite one
juicy mac - something is not working for me with the sub,
all lemon - just a quickie i made and thought id get your opinions - i was aiming for a large wide image in those synths but i feel like thyre still small and not too much dynamic.

they're not totally finished, just the first ideas
