I've been known to struggle with kick and bass combos for 11 years now!
It's never easy to get right.
In this case the kick doesn't appear to be all that meaty - it needn't be because of the massive sine bass sound.
Also, the bass and kick don't seem to coincide on the higher note, it's like the bass is just about a 16th note late. That technique can help clean up the low end of a rhytmh track immensely.

The soundcloud sample doesn't sound bad - I'd try the offset trick for more loudness/impact.

I definitely think it's a sine wave or something amounting to one (eg. heavily filtered saw wave)
Obviously the youtube track has that percussion/crowd thing going on and a less techno-sounding kick drum.
The kick drum also appears to be softer than the one your sequence. It's all about relative loudness!

Maybe they were just in the right place at the right time with their smartphones.
The possibilities of digital recording are endless. One tends to forget about that when stuck in a rut.
