Dubstep & other heavy bass music - Page 3

post #61 of 74

Love (no pun intended) that SYL song, and the evil dead theme video is great too. I have some of his solo albums too, very good stuff. Damn, this song (Love) is great, playing it now. Gene Hoglan is a monster on the drums too.

Check out some of Scorn's music if you never heard it before. It's basically Dub music done by Mick Harris who used to be the drummer from Napalm Death. Older Godflesh was pretty bass heavy too. There is a Kraftwerk tribute CD on Pandisc called Basskraft: A Bass Tribute to Kraftwerk. The Prodigy's Fat of The Land is good as is Daft Punk's Alive 2007. Skinny Puppy has some good bass in some of their songs.

The other day I was chilling out in my BASSment and going through some old tracks on my server.

Artist: Gabor Deutsch
Album: Contrast
Song: just about any song from the album.

Very surprised by the amount of bass. My car setup was obviously never as good as my current home setup. LOL

Going to bump this, and add:

Some Chords - Deadmau5. Dear. God.
Sophie Needs a Ladder - Deadmau5. Not as much, but still a ton of bass... and a lot of fun.
BIT RATE VARIATIONS IN B-FLAT (Girl) - Beck
Something else - Nero
Swing Tree - Discovery
I said - Deadmau5

I'm pretty sure you'll enjoy those!

My obsession with bass and my real-life hobby as an electronic music producer have colluded to provide you with what you are looking for - I promise a full workout for your subs and some enjoyable tunes to boot. "the Joy of Minimal" has a massive infra-sonic bassline - if you can't feel it, time for a new sub. Profunditty is a fuller, more dramatic song where most of the deep bass is in the 20-30hz range. Few commercial recordings ever bother with bass this deep except for those silly 'bass competition' albums.

Also check out The Orb, DJ Krush, Boards of Canada, Dub Syndicate, Scorn and Meat Beat Manifesto for some serious bottom-dwelling tracks in different genres. Especially "Answers come in Dreams" by Meat Beat Manifesto - some dubstep in there but mostly it's Jack Dangers exploring the rhythmic possibilities of the infrasonic realm. All songs by Dub King (aka me).

"Bigger Bang" has some infrasonic booms that give you goosebumps. Driving, uptempo groove.

"The Joy of Minimal" throbs in the sub-20hz world of 'feel it not hear it' bass

"Profunditty" serves up copious amount of low bass in the 20-30hz range

Finally, ener-getica 420 which is a mid-tempo jam that 'punches' the air with a series of percussive infra-sonic blasts and also features a bassline right on the verge of audible frequencies.

It doesn't get any more bass heavy than some of the reggae I listen to.

Such as:

Iration Steppas 'What's Wrong Dub'

King Earthquake 'fashion dub'

King Shiloh 'stepping forward'

the spectral content of the king earthquake track that you mention doesn't show much deep bass, just the same old regular bass with peak power in the 48, 64, and 75hz regions.

your peaks are down 20db from those by the time you get to 30hz.

Would you please post spectral analysis of "The Joy of Minimal"... I guarantee you'll like what you see (and hear)

that one is at the other end of the spectrum...big beats from 15-20hz. (ignore the absolute level, as i had the volume turned down during this one and the peak/avg is for the first two minutes of the track)

the only problem is most pro audio rigs are high passed to filter out that content.

you just can't win. :-)



of course if your system is sufficiently capable, you can win. :-)

by the way, spectrum lab is the name of the program and while it seems really confusing at first, there are setup guides and it becomes really intuitive after using it just a few times.

I don't know if you guys seen it but I created an "official" thread for music with bass.

http://www.avsforum.com/t/1421019/the-master-list-of-bass-in-music-and-more-with-frequency-charts/0_100

 

Lots of good songs in here I plan to add to the master thread.

Well... that one is my own track and it's produced using my rig, which is a full-range system based on a simple P.A. and subwoofer combo. I've successfully played sine waves - creating palpable, silent vibration - as low as 14 hz on my sub. I love composing with infrasonic bass. I'll pick up Spectrum Lab, and I'll definitely check out - and post in - the 'official' bass music thread!
