Producing Bass House? Here's How To Get the Bass To Stand Out

Bass House is a genre where your bassline has to be the centre of attention. Watch Adam Pollard (aka. Multiplier) explain how to capture your listeners' ear and keep them interested.   

Bass House is one of the few genres of music where your bassline not only carries the track forward but has to be prioritised above other elements of the track. The clue is in the name! In this video taken from the complete course, electronic producer Adam Pollard explains how to approach this unusual method of composition and mixing, where other elements of the track are there to complement and support the bassline. 

Unlike in House or Tech House where the percussion does a lot of the driving, you will learn how in Bass House your bass part has to be at the forefront. Adam explains how to create and mix bass sounds that are suitable for this particular genre of electronic music. In other videos in the course, Adam goes on to show you how to mix and process your bass tracks as well as how to avoid common programming and mixing mistakes.
