I think a lot of that “Dispatch Sound” is the use of analog filters and tube distortion… it sounds oldschool in methodology, but still modern and clear in presentation, if that makes sense. The Break masterclass on Digital Labz goes into making sounds like that… he said he uses an old EMU 6400 or something similar (basically the holy grail of D&B samplers, on account of its unique and quality filters). If you chain some analog-modeled filters on a bass sound, draw/perform in some movements, and then run that through a tube-style distortion, either cranked in parallel or decently-driven in serial, you can probably get close. Make sure to use a low-pass, at least, on some harmonically rich material (something originating from a square or saw, basically).
