Los Angeles based producer Freq Nasty is one such artist that is synonymous with bass music. He was an early innovator with low frequencies and has built a solid reputation for producing forward thinking releases with a common theme of spirituality and community. He recognizes that music provides us with "a deep internal connection to everyone and everything," and strives to deliver this message through his Yoga Of Bass initiative and various seminars and live performances. There's much more to this culture than one might think and Freq Nasty is a guiding force bringing like minded people together.

In the past few years Freq Nasty has been working closely with SubPac to provide insight into how the revolutionary technology affects the listening experience. It's really all about feeling the physical aspects of music and recognizing that these frequencies can be felt in other ways besides just hearing them. In order to help us understand this better, he's provided us with a collection of tracks that accurately portray various levels of bass. He's given us a diverse collection showcasing quality music from some of the industry's best producers.

"I wanted to use an eclectic playlist to show the variation that the SubPac can deliver, from heavy electronic to more ambient, and even live music."
