If you’ve ever been to a music festival, there is no doubt that you have heard future bass music. It’s a synth-based genre of music, also drawing inspiration from trap, pioneered by artists such as Flume and Cashmere Cat. Some other notable artists that have contributed to the genre are Ekali, Louis The Child, Flux Pavilion, Illenium, Marshmello, RL Grime and more.
The most evident characteristics of future bass music are massive detuned supersaw synth chords and leads, hard rapid-fire trap drums and a sub bass that will shake your entire house. It is common to use risers, white noise and drum build-ups in the arrangement of these songs, and some tracks also feature lush vocals.
If you want to start making future bass music, these sample packs will help get you on your way.
