It makes sense to layer when it's called for, but it's all a question of what you want to achieve.

If you just want a standout kick, you don't need any of that.

Look into saturation and compression as well as side chain processing. EQ would also be helpful. And get some good samples. If your sample is shit, everything you do to it won't make a difference.
What do you need it to sound like? What about what you have isn't right? Have you looked at it in a spectrum analyzer?

Techno starts with a capital 'T', as in TB-303 and TR-808.
