Taking a listen now. Liking the start of this track.
Oh yeah… that’s some heavily distorted loop.
Then in comes the clean highs. A very varied construction. Reminds me of a Fatboy Slim interview I read in which he said he uses two drum kits. One crazy distorted and the other a bit more normal.
Onto your original question. It sounds like the kick has a distorted layers layers mixed together, ran as a loop with additional samples completing the break, and then distorted once again together as a whole.
Whatever he is layering the kick drum with is giving it that flavour. I’d say some sound around 3kHz and 10kHz area with reverb… distorted and pushed into the red.
Loving these vibes!
I’m not a DJ but it makes me want to play this next
Going to try and make a kick like this later. I’ll do my best to let you know the results.
Additionally, I did see a cool trick the other day. Someone took a drone sound. Pushed it through their favourite filter with reverb. Distorted it heavily and took that as the starting point as a sample. Then sampled that microscopically (maybe granular). Then distorted that a lot and What A Bassline!
