Whilst playing around with drum programming I came up with this little drum and bass loop, not perfectly mixed but it's a work in progress

Haven't really done this kind of stuff before so any constructive criticism would be much appreciated =)

Short and not powerful enough, but nice try. :)

As a general critique (because I admit that I have little experience on drum and bass genre also), I think this loop sounds okay but lacks depth. The spectrum of sound seems to be flat and in the same plane. For example, the drum loop itself, to me, sounds pretty dry and not powerful enough to propel the song forward and does create obvious sense of repetition throughout. You could tweak the EQ and give a little bit of delay and reverb just to make them feel grand and energetic.

As for the pad and piano-like synth, they sound sort of mixing up in gray timbre. Of course, I can hear the triad in my right ear and undulating synth at the center, but I don't really know which one to focus on due to the overused reverbed effect and long notes. I suggest you to tune it down a little bit and pay more attention to the quality and role of each sound. Which is the main melody and how should it be played to be heard succinctly. Hope these help you.

You could also listen to the top-scorers among the NGAP in Drum and Bass genre, then compare them to yours. Find out what they focus on their songs and what makes their songs powerful and catchy. You'd definitely improve in the upcoming works. :)
