There are quite a few that I have to add from Porter Robinson' Worlds Remixed LP:
Sad Machine (Deon Custom remix)
Flicker (Mat Zo remix)
Polygon Dust (Sleepy Tom remix)
Goodbye To A World (Chrome Sparks remix)

Songs that sound awesome from that album anyway:
Divinity (ODESZA remix) [Sounds like Moby]
Fresh Static Snow (Last Island remix) [Trust me it sounds amazing]
Sea Of Voices (Galimatias remix) [Nice jazzy take on this slow song]
Hear The Bells (Electric Mantis remix)
Let me add Partition by Beyonce to the mix. Give the song 15 seconds (after she says hey Mrs. Carter) and your speakers will explode. Every SONOS speaker sounds ridiculous with his song.
Well, I still don't have a Sub, but what about Sympathy from Steve Rowland & Family Dog for some serious bass? Sounds pretty low on my Stereo Gen 1 Play 5s already. Hmmm, Iron Sky from Paolo Nutini wouldn't be that bad either.

Nice suggestions Hermie. I've enjoyed what Paolo Nutini I've heard.

Let me add 'Unfinished Sypathy' by Massive Attack. At the start of the song your SUB will blow you away!!
From Caroline Lavelle's album "Spirit", try the tracks 'Waiting for rain', and 'Lagan Love' (hang on to your hat from 2:15).

I'm a big fan of testing with Massive Attack.

Another fun one is Glitch Mob - Carry the Sun or Fortune Days.

I haven't tried out those Pierre, I'll have to give it a shot later.
A good test is

The weeknd - The hills

Turn it up and your sub gets a good test at the 40 second mark.

Everyone go listen to Flume's new album Skin, all tracks great on bass.

Definitely listen to Tiny Cities (feat. Beck) make sure your speakers/sub are up and don't give up during the long build up after the verse, trust me.

My bass shortlist for Skin would be: Lose it, 3, When Everything Was New, Take a chance (2min10 on), Like Water and Tiny Cities.
For jazz lovers, two legends that seem to have been around forever - Houston Person and Ron Carter - have just released a new album, Chemistry. Every track has enough content for the Sub from Carter's double bass playing, while the album itself is very well recorded from a stereo imaging and sound quality POV. Laid back music, but far from elevator style. Best heard late at night over a drink or three.
@Josh D nice tracks.

Flo rida - Roots
THE best track I've found to really test the SUB (and structure of my house!) is La Roux - in for the kill (let's get ravey remix).
Please try it!!

I always love the way the drums go from side to side on Bjork Hunter, bass is brilliant too! Enjoy!

I haven't seen these two mentioned:
On My Level feat. Too $hort by Wiz Khalifa
Bad and Boujee (feat Lil Uzi Vert) by Migos

"On My Level" hits hard in my car but I think the bass messes with the treble and garbles his voice. On my Play:5 gen 2 and Sub, it's very clean and absolute bass.
The Knife
Genesis Live

Insane range and dynamic range
