This particular dissonant synth sound?

There is a sound I am trying to recreate which, sounds like the underlying synth in this track by Pepe Bradock.

Pepe Bradock 4 - YouTube

I think I understand that it is probably made from sine waves tuned differently but there must be a particular setting that works best! Also, it seems to have a moving texture.

Anyone can help me who might know how to make this deep house sound?

Thanks a lot

"Underlying" is kind of meaningless - are you talking about chord, lead, bass?

At 1:33 I hear it clearly if it's what you're talking about - it's not dissonant, though, it's a perfectly valid 7th chord.

Sorry, I don't have much knowledge on theory so, I couldn't hear it was a 7th.

Yeah, I guess it's the lead on the track but, it's actually audible from the very beginning of the track.

I just want to know how you can achieve that kind of synth sound. To me, it sounded like the oscillators were pitched differently but, I'm not good at synthesis.

It's more likely that someone lowpassed the hell out of it and then turned up the cutoff very slowly.

Edit! Listen to the track before posting a reply next time!

Detuned sines or filtered saws are it...gently Lfo mod the fine pitch of one Osc and you're there.
