As far as I can tell, you kick isn't bad, the problem is the lead sound. His sounds REALLY close, no reverb whatsoever, while yours sounds a little further away.
Also, his sound has a little more low mids and bottom, it sounds raspier overall. Try lowering the octave or boosting lower frequencies. And his notes are triplets, yours are normal 16ths, so his sound less mechanical and more "loose".

For a start the timing is different giving a different groove. His is more dry/your wet with fx. You tempo is faster too?

Your bass sound (not really much bass though) is behind you pitched-rising fx. I would have the reverb on the riser and not on the bass.

Thank u guys i hear to ur advices and i did some changes ... http://soundcloud.com/chen-zokaim/romera-test-v2

But still something is missing me and i cant figure it out , maybe its the clean sound he have , every thing is so HARMONIC in his track and in mine its sounds like all sounds clashing each other and not sitting properly

Well the second test you made is MUCH closer to his sound. There's still small differences, his riser ends sooner than yours, which gives space for his vocal hit which gives the drop a bigger impact. He also sounds like he's got a cutoff or a pitch shift going along with his synth in the riser making it feel like all the sounds are building together, and it doesn't hurt that he has a longer build up time. It's all about the tension the build up gathers. Another thing I just noticed in his build up is that he side chains the whole thing, which can really help to keep the groove and the tension going. Maybe that would help?

His sound is a bit more centered and in your face.
