That is a really kick ass track! I am digging this tune.

I was rooting around some MP3s and found this ambient piece with some very deep bass drone textures, digging the way down to the single digits in frequency, but not mixed over-the-top. Very dark and ominous sound, like the soundtrack to a killer horror film.

Don't Stop the Music - Rihanna

I'm not sure what it is about this song, but it randomly came up on Pandora and it really rocks my house with my eight sealed subs, more so than perhaps any song I can remember in recent history (outside of intention bass/subwoofer type songs). It immediately made me take notice.

It might be a resonant frequency thing of my room or something, but the repeated thump thump thump with my eight sealed subs just shakes my room and my projector and my screen unlike anything else I've experienced yet. It's a very impressive experience and immediately the song went from something that I've heard casually to a must play on my demo track short list. You feel the weight of the bass line in the core of your body in my room.

Take a listen and tell me if you experience the same for you, or if it's just my room and setup?!?!?

Nice Easy listening, Pop. BEGIN AGAIN

This is no 20 hz banging LFE, but it's got nice pop songs and makes good use of the surrounds + sub and makes you feel immersed and well blended, but warning some say it's "chic" movie but I think most men can handle it.

BEGIN AGAIN BLURAY version, you can jump to the various songs from the main menu.

There are quite a few songs on that album with some throbbing bass beats. "Shut Up And Drive" comes to mind....

Funny you mention that one by name, because it was another one I was really impressed with from a tactile perspective on previous occassion and that song had made it into my demo track list, but it doesn't do to my room, what the Don't stop the music does. Since you say the album has similar heavy bass content on it - I'll have to give it a listen on Spotify tonight, and see what else is worthwhile.

Looking at a spectragram, that tune isn't mixed particularly hot in bass, but there is considerable energy to under 10 Hz. The bassline, kick drum, and one of the synth instrumentals all hit at the same time as well, so you do get a real punch on the beat. Here is a pretty representative chunk of the tune:

Note how there is a very slight lag on the deeper end of the bass, perhaps that is because they didn't want too much bass energy at one instant so there would be less to compress. Probably not a bad idea.

What's funny is that I missed your post here, and was trying to figure out the name of this very track only about a week ago after hearing it on a BMW commercial!!! I definately need to crank this one on the caps.

Edit - Archaea was referring to "Sail" by Awolnation in the above quote of him talking to me...(the song in the above video)


Well, Awolnation just came out with a new album and one song on there kicks ass again. Not necessarily a subwoofer song, but it seems to kick pretty good in spots. Here is that song below.


What do you think of that one Archaea?

I discovered these randomly throughout the years. I literally have a folder full of bass songs, these are just 'some' of the standouts I never/or rarely have seen spoken about. Some of these are more subtle with ULF, while others are brute forces making my 8 sealed 18's do nasty stuff to my house! I'll put a * next to the hardest hitters when I find more time. I noticed these going low despite sitting on a concrete slab. You IB/Sealed/LLT owners should enjoy these if you enjoy watching your woofers do the slow dance

I'm may edit this by tiers at some point... Anyone want to run graphs in the meantime?
