It’s no secret that I’m a big fan of Bass House. 
Having been introduced to ‘EDM’ through old electro house and complextro, it’s no wonder I’m keen on the classic 4 to the floor rhythms, epic groove and intense basses when it comes to bass house.

Having made quite a few tutorials on the genre over the years over on YouTube and various sample packs as well, I felt it was time to pool all my best tips and tricks to create a mini masterclass of sorts to showcase what I believe are all the essential elements to creating an awesome Bass House drop. In the jam packed mini bass house master class episode below, we’ll be diving into:
