What bike for me?

I've been riding BMX for the last 5 years or so and am interested in getting a little more serious into MTB. My dad's a pretty big XC nut, hence I've tried several times to get into the sport, but never felt anything click for me. Right now I have a Diamondback Mission that i picked up for 800, thinking I'd enjoy a bit more of an agressive trail bike because of my bmx backround. To me it has felt to big and mushy (not stiff enough to have fun jumping). I want something that will feel more like a BMX, but i dont want a full on DJ/Urban bike so i can still ride some XC or maybe even Super D with my pops. I've been thinking of the yeti DJ orGT La Bomba, any other ideas? What are your opinions?
