Songs that have Bass that Rocks your House !!

Here’s my three:

James Taylor, Hourglass, Gaia: Huge drum thwacks that move through the back of the soundstage Right To Left!

Incubus, Morning View, Nice to Know you… Big nasty deep bass riff right at the start

Al DiMelola , Kiss My Axe, The Embrace… Massive Tight Drum Whacks (and of course typical great guitar playing) One of his best records.


Safri duo - the bongo song

Quite different - a piece for organ - Leon Boelmann, Toccata from Suite Gothique:

The real bass kicks in a the end. No instruments can follow an organ in bass performance!

Rag ‘n’ Bone Man - Human.

Third track in, “Skin” has subterranean bass on the chorus, and just happens to be the best track on the album, IMHO, of course.


The opening fifteen seconds of The Blind Boys of Alabama’s “Spirit of the Century” album, followed immediately by what sounds like the Voice of God singing, “Jesus gonna be here…”.

Massive Attack - Angel / Karmacoma
Dizzy Rascal - Bonkers
The XX - Fantasy

If you want base that rocks the house then we must include the track “Keep the Wolves Away” by Uncle Lucius from his album “And You Are Me”.
It’s been used on a few Naim demo days.
