So what were the best songs featuring the Yamaha DX series Solid/Lately bass in your opinion? I really like chime and halycon by Orbital.

Kevin Saunderson's 'Big Fun' and its various derivatives* are based around the 'Lately Bass' preset as I recall.

* e.g. - Dave Clarke - 'Red' Series

Dream On by Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs. Probably one of the catchiest basslines ever.

Doug Lazy - Let It Roll
Toni Scott - That's How I'm Living

PS I didn't realise Nu Shooz was that bass(I'm guessing it's Solid as Lately wasn't out in 84/85)

PS was Seduction by Seduction one of those basses?

Properly the best newer sound of the lately bass sound;
I think its layered with another bass actually
Enjoy

I think this is one of the best examples of that FM bass sound in a pop track from that era ....

ABC - When Smokey Sings (1987 Original Video) - YouTube

I could be wrong, but it sounds like it to me ...

Was Nu Shooz - I Can't Wait actually lately bass / solid bass? The song came out in '86, I guess it could have been the DX100, that came out in '85, but the TX81Z didn't come out until '87.

I would have though it was an MKS-80 or DX7, or both.
