Checkout this bass house remix of Yo Majesty's Club Action, originally a hip hop nightclub track, this rework makes it suitable for a heavy deep house set.
I've spent the majority of my Summer working on music mainly because I was sick of booking DJ gigs without having original music to spin. I've always enjoyed producing music but I never really challenged myself with making club friendly stuff. This track was something that I imagined would work in the ideal club/festival setting.
Smookie Illson popularized Club Action when they reworked it into a trap tune that became a must-play for almost every DJ this past festival season. Although I love playing out their version, I noticed that there weren't many alternative mixes and at some point Smookie's would get played out. On top of that deep and bass house tracks have been gaining way more momentum online taking after AC Slater's touch on UK Garage. I decided to take the dubstep influence and combine it with the funky 80's style kick drum patterns which led me to make this...

The song began as a collaboration with Arkitect but I soon dove way too deep into it, something that has definitely happened before. At its early stages I went through the process of creating several bass house drops for it, which meant I would take a few hours to create something cool then take a break and come back to it. Although there were a lot of cool ideas in the drops that never made the cut, I knew that I was going for a mind blowing first reaction and if it wasn't there then it wouldn't matter how much I changed or edited it, it needed to be powerful in its simplest form.
Above that this is one of my first real ventures with Xfer's Serum, a beastly VST that I took advantage of for my drop lead. This combined with Native Instrument's Massive and FM8 gave me all of the horse power I needed to create these dirty future house and dubstep influenced bass lines. The drop itself contains about 10 different bass line synths and I was able to add some glue by grouping them and adding some slight dynamics.
Let me know what you think, I'm hoping to spread this along to as many DJs as possible. If you're curious to any part of the song production wise feel free to hit me up here and I'll answer any questions.
