Dom’s 808-based re­place­ments and ad­di­tions make them­selves known right from the start. “At the top of the track, I wanted to add a bit more 808 work. You’ve got th­ese re­ally subby 808s that ac­tu­ally make it sound like the track is go­ing to go in a dif­fer­ent di­rec­tion, but once it all rolls in, it doesn’t, and it sounds re­ally good. I toyed with mak­ing those an oc­tave up, so that the weight of the real bass – the core bass of the track – when it came in would be re­ally strong, but there’s some­thing nice about ref­er­enc­ing it be­fore the drop, so I left them as they were.”

“It was a nice idea to get some­thing prop­erly ana­logue in there: a lit­tle bit psy­chotic-sound­ing!”

Dom used Pro­ducer Sounds’ 808 War­fare in­stru­ment to give Rude­boy a help­ing of cone-rat­tling sub-bass
