How to replicate this Unique 808/Kick Mix?

Hello,

I need help with deconstructing mixes like these:

https://soundcloud.com/808-louie/fingersblue-w-vnsn (the first half)

https://soundcloud.com/808-louie/dead-luv

https://soundcloud.com/808-louie/thecode

https://soundcloud.com/808-louie/rvnge

Whenever it hits it seems to clip, but it's a really harsh clip. The kick sounds kinda scrunched up. In 'The Code' it's almost like the kick is sidechained to every other element?

I've tried replicating this with limiters, compressor, soft clipping, hard clipping etc. I've put them on the master bus, on the kick by itself, I've grouped kick/808 and then used the fx, but I still can't seem to get the same sound.

I've tried with different kick/808 samples too. I've tried layering the kick with snares and claps but it's no use.

It seems to be almost impossible to replicate it.

Some people were talking about the Digital Clip preset in Ableton's Stock Saturator, can someone try that for me?

Would love some input from you guys! I work on FL studio.
