Hi Hazer!

We've been asked this question before on the SOS Forums, so I suspect you'll find a lot of info in this thread:

Recommendations for Reference Track Lists

Hope it helps!

For bass, 'Higher and Higher' by Jackie Wilson.

Because of the beauty and clarity of that amazing bass intro riff, rumoured to be Motown wizard James Jamerson.

On that third one (Darn that Dream), listen to how natural and right in front of your face the instruments are. This one song is my ultimate mix reference. This mix sounds great everywhere, sort of magically.
