Boddika

Hi!

I would like to know tips And tricks in how to make beats or treat the bass similar to the way Boddika and other guys like Jon Convex do.
I dont have any idea in how they make that clean but powerfull beats, they are so fat.
If you know any tricks or links with info please share

All depends on personal preference or point of view...

This is not a discussion about personal taste...lol

I just really would love to know how to make beats like them, elastic, jumping, clean but with that warm feeling.
And I'm referring to Compression or some tricks like that.
Usually my beats are more techno or house (detroid, chicago...) with that raw feeling, thats the aesthetic that kicks me, but recently I listen to Boddika sound in a good P.A. and that beat is amazing and really well produced.

I like this sound. Not boring at all to those of use with more refined tastes.

Seems that there is not a lot of processing after the sounds come out of the synths/samplers; maybe a reverb, delay, sometimes phaser/flanger. The music is more focused on the groove rather than an overproduced mix.

Most Boddika tracks sound like unfinished sketches of grooves at best. What's funny is that Carl Craig put out a record of unfinished sketches recently, and despite sounding like it the tracks are about a million times more interesting than Boddika. The fact that this guy is popular is pretty much a complete joke. Joy Orbison, etc also. UK dance music hype machine at its very best.
Can't compare one thing with another...2 totally Different things and I love both.

Actually we can call boring 99% of electronic music.
What i see is that guy try to push things out of limits. I love how "bass" scene changing right now, and Boddika/Instra:mental are big part of it.
As for Boddika sound - i thought he's ITB guy. His tracks sound so clean and post 2010's, even after reading some interviews i think he's doing a lot of work (at least at mixing stage) ITB. Cant believe he use guitar pedals and 80's outboard stuff
I guess good compression skills are big part of his sound

I agree with you 100%...and I have a problem there (compression), lol.
It's not my intention to make sound like he does...but I ear his sound and I see that I have limitations (loads) with compression and thats why its difficult for me to understant what he does, it sounds so simple but so difficult for me to get it. Thats why I made this question.

I have a few Boddika and Joy-O records that sound pretty incredible. I heard they use mostly hardware but even if they didn't, they make it sound like they do. Big, punchy drums and deep deep basses that just kill on a big system.

Also the pressings are super nice, at least the Sunklo ones. I passed on the recent Nonplus 12"s. They just didn't sound as exciting to me but were pretty good still.

Neve Style compression and loads of tape saturation is a key component to the Boddika sound..but he has super amazing ears and a desire to make things sound big like no other.

Convex is a big fan of the Nord tones and in his early tracks used loads of Vermona drum synths.

I took one of the photos in that interview.

First rule of GS - never get into an argument about music on here. At best they like Carl Craig and at worse its mainstream EDM. Use this place for gear info only.
