Builds, drop and breaks
Formulaic in composition, it is predictable and easy for listeners to anticipate the climaxing builds, and drops. As such, the the two climaxes are separated with a break. This strikes the listener as a quieter more melodic section. The track quickens toward the build before a big release of energy at the drop.
Hardstyle influences on Big Room sound
Sound design is uniquely Bassjackers big room style. They have some influences from other genres such as hardstyle. This is audible in the kick drum and its effects. As such, the kick is pitched, and boosted with bassmuch like a hardstyle kick. The filter effect on the kick drum shapes the sound of the attack toward the classic “TOK” sound simulating the contact of the mallet against the drum. These acoustics are very subtle, allowing for the fat and round kick drum sound typical of big room style tracks to come through the mix.
The party vibes come through the lead melody. In the key of D flat Major, the sound is far from being cheesy. As a result, Bassjackers “Snatch” has a serious attitude.
