So... how did I make it????
Some hints...

KICK: D16 Punchbox. Made the preset myself - as I needed it to sit really tight against the dirty bass - which wasn't an easy challenge.
PERCUSSION: Loads and loads and loads of single hit samples and spending b***dy hours getting the groove and ensuring everything sits tuned and EQd neatly.
BASS: Roland SH-101. Serious processing here - wanted saturated, amp, bit-crushed, wobbly, in a warehouse distant sound etc. Varies/morphs slowly/subtly throughout the track.
PIANO CHORD: Single chord sample which I found. Plays at the end of a 4 bar section once in a while.
ORGAN: Sonic Academy ANA 2.
FX: Thrown the kitchen sink at this. Used the Propellerhead ECHO - in ROLL mode and automated the triggering in time with the music - just having fun.
Also for FX - I took a really rough robot sound FX and stretched it, tuned it up an octave and locked it into the beat - and EQd it until there was hardly anything left - which is used in some places to add texture.
SPEECH: Well yes - It's Norman Cook talking about himself. And some other snippets I got from some dance music documentaries on BBC 4.
All my music created, produced and mastered in Reason 10.4 (WIndows)

This sounds great!
Love the bass... there's an UJAM Virtual Bassist competition you could participate in if you like.
