need help with deep tech / minimal groove


New member
Hi there!

I was wondering what the secret is to getting that ultimate deep tech groove. I was inspired to create something like the intro of the track by Andrea Wenger - Nothing Is Random (Original Mix).
However my attempt didn't even get close. The groove in this track sounds really big and fat, but also very funky.

So what are the secrets to get everything to fit together so well? I know some can be achieved with compression on the drum bus and some EQ as well. Also I'm hearing some distortion, noise and some reverb.

Are there any useful plug-ins or other techniques to make such a phat groove?? What are your approaches to this?

Thanks so much!!
