Sabb's Top 10 Basslines

Sabb's Top 10 Basslines

published on 31.10.16

With his infectious new single out now on DFTD, we sat down with Sabb to chat through his favourite ever house basslines... We can't really argue with any of these!

X-Press 2 - Muzik Xpress

Just absolutely massive. One of the greatest, most impactful records ever made. Simply tears the club apart.

Danny Tenaglia - Music is the Answer

Clearly a masterpiece from whichever angle you look at it, but I particularly like how the bass just cuts through so cleanly. It’s quite subtle, but really makes the record.

Octave One - Blackwater

An example of a bassline providing a melodic edge, rather than just power and groove. Delicate and beautiful.

George Morel - Let's Groove

George really nailed this one. Probably one of the most instantly recognisable basslines in history. Defined early garage and still gets hammered to this day.

Michael Gray - The Weekend

Funky as fuck! Polish off those dancing shoes…

Funky Green Dogs From Outer Space - Reach For Me

One of the coolest basslines of all time. MURK are rightly thought of as one of the best production outfits in house, and this is a career highlight. Just works every time.

Chez Damier - Can You Feel It (Steve Bug Re-Rub)

Steve Bug took a stone-cold classic and to my mind improved on it, which is saying something. Love the low-end on this, something that Germans do better than everyone else!

Lego - El Ritmo de Verdad

No words for this one really – just pure class. Maybe not as well-known as some of the others on this list, but easily holds its own.

MD X-Spress - God Made me Phunky

The definition of a crowd-pleaser. Genre-defining vocals and a bassline so simple, yet so effective. I could listen to this looped for hours. 

Byron Stingly - Get Up! (Mousse T. Remix)

A record that works at home, in the club – anywhere. Sexy as hell and definitely one for the ladies.
