Try this song 
"BASS Drops" by Nenad Vasilic from album Bass Room.
Great for testing bass and imaging
Actual Gavrilo's principles is good too
Enjoy

I rediscovered Mila Drumke, (heard her live when she was a teenager) she has an album of standards, the whole album is terrific,

her version of My Funny Valentine is just her and a bass player. Not the most bass, but the tonality explored is DELIGHTFUL!

It’s a perfect example of "It’s not how many notes you play, it’s the notes you play".
Nice sound thanks for the link.
I also listen to artist Brian Bomberg album titled "My  Bass" some really nice string work there.
Keep the suggestions coming .Great way to discover new arists/ music
Cheers

Dance of the Knights from Prokofiev’s Romeo and Juliet. Especially the LSO recording under Gergiev.
Al DeMeola "Scenario", Tony Levin's bas stick is absolutely destructive!
Skream - Filth
Skream - Blipstream

Pretty much anything by Skream, Benga, Coki, Mala, Caspa, or Kromestar. 
For deep bass in normal music and good songs:
Celine Dion "I Don't Know"
Flight of the Cosmic Hippo
Celtic Women "May it Be" and "Fields of Gold"

For slamming turn it up bass:
Moana soundtrack "We Know the Way"  seriously crank this up
"Thanks to you" by Boz Skaggs
Six Blade Knife-Dire Straits
Flight of Cosmic hippo I have it is great. Will check out the others thanks
Tool: Chocolate Chip Trip 🤯

It's so cool to me that others know about "Flight of the Cosmic Hippo".

I would also recommend "Cousin John" by Marcus Miller. 
Pretty good test for lows but even more so the speed and dynamics. 
Night Moves by Gregg Allman on his best album.

I used to haul around The Last Record Album for the track One Love Stand. I bought 2 pairs of speakers with it. 

an album by Chris Thile and Edgar Meyer named Bass & Mandolin has lots of deep double bass.
Cousin John is excellent thanks for the suggestion. See what you mean about speed
"Love", the fourth track from the 1971 Pharaoh Sanders album Thembi.  5 minutes of brilliant  stand-up bass playing by Cecil McBee. The engineer of this recording got everything right.  Sounds like you are inside the bass. You can feel the wood of the instrument vibrate. My go-to for testing bass and imaging.
G Love and Special Sauce...Stone Me
Grace Jones - Hurricane Dub

Shiba SAN - okay


Yello - Rush for joe. Great bass and holographic 

thats really funny - I just wanted to recommend the same album as ecpninja did: 
"bassroom" von Nenad Vasilic!
I love his music and he is extremely demanding in sound- and recording-technology.
this one is incredibly well recorded! 
my favourites are track 3, 5, 7, 10, 11 and 12 :-)

Jim Smith book I'm reading (Get Better Sound) cautions against setting up the bass with too much of a focus on bass. There's a danger of not attending sufficiently to soundstage and voice. His book is better on this, but here's a bit of his thinking:  https://audioexotics.vanillacommunity.com/discussion/13088/subwoofery-by-jim-smith

Thanks for all the great suggestions I am discovering great new music
Really love the Nend Vasilic sound on album Bass Room.
Also I don't listen to EDM  music that much but I am really impressed by the integration of percussion and horns used in Yello's "Live in Berlin"video/album on you tube (video) album on Tidal.
My test for bass is not necessarily about bass quantity but more 'presentation'.

The intro to the Logical Song by Supertramp has a low-tuned tom roll as the drums come into the mix. It tends to be just low enough in pitch and volume that it can become subtle with certain speakers. It's as if one of the speakers has its polarity reversed. Adding a subwoofer didn't help because the bass on toms is higher up in the lower frequency band. Getting that to fill in meant overcompensating with the subwoofer which ruined the mix.

The whole track has excellent bass with my previous 88db speakers but that initial tom roll was insipid...as if it was recorded in another room. My new 93db speakers also has  great bass throughout the track but captured the tom roll with great detail and presence. It was a revelation.

Pink Floyd "Sorrow" live version

Ghost Rider "Make us stronger"

"A Child Is Coming" - Blows Against the Empire - Paul Kantner/Grace Slick/"Jefferson Starship" (really, The Planet Earth Rock and Roll Orchestra, or PERRO) - at about 1:27, Jack Casady’s bass becomes the lead, then the solo instrument.

"Laughing" - If I Could Only Remember My Name - David Crosby/PERRO - Phil Lesh on bass, all the way through.

Both albums were recorded at the same time in the same studio in San Francisco. PERRO is a group of musicians drawn from the Jefferson Airplane, The Grateful Dead, Quicksilver Messenger Service, CSNY, Santana, and including Laura Allan and Joni Mitchell.
