I believe that track is called "Under the Influence" if my memory serves me right

I will add (from the top of my head):

Lull-Cold Summer(First track has some deep bass tones)
Bill Laswell-Divination-Nice tight but deep bass lines in two of the tracks.
Scorn-Zander-I think track three has some low tone sweeps in the lower range that would test any speaker system.
That album was kind of a sleeper. I was still into progressive trance when it came out, and I only took 1 listen to it then. I dusted it off last summer, and it just absolutely blew me away.

Have you checked out the Miles - Trilok Gurtu joint project yet? It was released in early 2004, but I still haven't picked up a copy yet.

the songs i turn to for the deepest bass are:

mudvayne- skrying (@ 3:27, best sub drop i have heard)
slowdive- in mind [reload remix [the 147 take]] (ridiculous beautiful deep bass)
a perfect circle- lullaby (mind numbing deep bass)
puscifer- mamma sed [tandemonium mix] (deep atmosphere)
dead can dance- indus and song of the stars (great tribal bass)
klf- the white room (more deep trance bass)
linkin park- track 5 off reanimation (rap rock deep bass)
NIN- reptile (i think it is nin's deepest bass)

and yes, i have all of massive attack's studio albums and many of them can be on this list too, but others have already named the notables.

i have studio monitors and a middle of the line elemental designs sub bass subwoofer.

remember, this is for deep bass, deepest is not loudest, just the most likely to make you have to take a dump with a great sound system.

Lots of good recommendations, I'll add: Freak Nasty's "Da Dip". One of my favorite bass test tracks.

Yeah, the 280's have amazing deep bass. They are a little light on upper-mid bass, but the low bass is ridiculous!

Rapper's Ball - E-40, Too Short, and K-Ci. Deep slam for real.
Sideways - E-40 and B-Legit, they also have a song as The Click called "Wolf Tickets." Not to be missed by bassheads.

For me, nothing can top a well-recorded organ CD. In this regard, the best I've ever heard is one that was passed around a few years ago but never was commercially available. It simply has the most perfect low bass I've ever heard.

Check some of these out:

Track 8:



Track 10:



Track 16:



From a website devoted to the now-defunct Atlantic City Convention Hall organ, which had real 64 foot pipes that did an honest 8hz (and could fake 128 foot resultant pipes and 4hz!), there's this little diddy. After about 11hz, I no longer felt the pressure waves, and only heard the air compressors and reeds flapping back and forth:



Non-organ music goes deep, too. Anyone ever heard of bassist Yves Carbonne? He has a 12-string electric bass tuned down to 15.4hz. AND, he has free MP3s of it on his website. It's definitely an odd sensation hearing an electric string bass go so low -- according to a spectrumlab analysis, 20hz is the lowest he goes on the free MP3s.

Anyway, it's a fun test for your subs. Go here:

Yves Carbonne Official Web site

Download them all if you wish, but the two that plumb the depths are "Cherokee" and "Sub_bass_impro_3."

Clapton's "Unplugged" has some low frequency stuff mostly from the mics recording foot tapping on the raised wooden stage:

Here's "Before You Accuse Me," with energy bleeding into the high-20s



The low frequency of a venue in live recordings is easy to pick out. This is "Sleepwalk" by Hank Marvin from the Strat Pack DVD:



And here's "No Quarter" from Zeppelin's 02 gig. Check out the synth bass at 32hz.



"Hotel California" from the Eagles' "Hell Freezes Over" has a nice kickdrum centered at 28hz:



Finally, no low bass list is complete without "Bass I Love You." Strong down to 5HZ!



Download it here: Realm of Excursion and click on "downloads."

Do you mean the "Soundhound" organ CD?

I have a copy from the first round of copies directly from Mr. Soundhound It was at S&V forums where he offered this recording. If you go to S&V and search you will find much info about it.

I'll be checking out those links. Thanks.

Yup, it's the Soundhound Organ CD1. CD2 is not quite as much fun, (more theatre-style organ), but also has good bass.

I could not fail to disagree with you less.

"Why So Serious?" from The Dark Knight OST by Hans Zimmer / James Newton Howard.
At 03:27 there's like a LPF on the whole mix and the low end is just insane. Listening on headphones it feels like your head is being compressed to the point of imploding.
