    This is pretty damn good for a first mix, or at least a hell of a lot better than my first mixes.

    But instantly the first thing I notice, that snare is hella muddy, high pass it if you didn't already and cut around 200Hz~. That's probably what's clipping it too.
    Personally, there's just a little too much reverb on the vocals for my taste, I'd say to take it down a notch.
    Don't worry about 'mixing' the bass drop, I just stick it in there and don't worry about it, the whole point being there to add the punch AND let it drive the master a little for that explosive effect, BUT this is all done in the sub-bass region, which is where your drops aren't focused, so bring the synth or whatever you're using for it down an octave.
    Other than that, the tom's don't have a whole lot of body and the bass guitar's burying the kick, try to balance those a little more.

    Can't really complain otherwise, it sounds pretty kickass, keep it up!
