I find I'm having trouble getting the sub bass frequencies right with this type of music.
Yeah, I realized after I suggested it that I don't really know anything about producing songs with swing either.
One thing I could suggest that I've recently discovered for the bass is to sidechain it with a dynamic EQ rather than a compressor. This will still make the bass audible whenever the kick hits, but just duck out the conflicting frequencies to clean it up.
There's a good thread in the tutorial section about this. It also uses TDRNova as the DynEQ, which is a free VST.
