The Bass Fire Extinguisher + 10 More Uses For Focused Bass Power

Two George Mason University seniors have invented a bass fire extinguisher that douses flames with ultra low-frequency sound waves.

The 30-60-hz bass waves are so powerful, they create a tiny gap between the oxygen and the fuel, effectively preventing the fire from re-igniting.

The Washington Post spoke with the two engineering majors Seth Robertson and Viet Tran about their innovation, which they hope to apply to larger-scale building, forest, and even space fires in the future.

If you're anything like us, you're thinking, "Well, slap my ass and call me Judy. That's f*cking amazing! What other nasty everyday problems can we stamp out with the power of wub?" Here are a few suggestions (... wubwubwubwubwub... that's him blastin' sh*t with bass):

2. Icky spiders

3. Dude bros

4. Racist-ass cops

5. Nagging girlfriends

6. Good-for-nothing lazy-ass boyfriends

7. F*cking yappy-ass little rat dogs

Vato Gonzalez Brings ‘Freaks’ To The Dancefloor

Sydney-based electro house producer Timmy Trumpet and rapper Savage's 2014 top-10 mainstream hit Freaks gets a "dirty house" remix via Dutchman Vato Gonzalez (pictured).

The track's original mix is a fuzzy electro, horn-led festival smasher with existing Dutch house influences. Gonzalez' remix adds a bonus beat to the measure, introducing a dance-friendly groove to the fist-pumping original track. ​

No release date or official status has been confirmed for the remix, but the original track is available from Ministry of Sound Australia here.

Hudson Mohawke Sparks His ‘Lantern’ With ‘Very First Breath’

Glasgow's avant-garde beatsmith Hudson Mohawke gives us the first track off his forthcoming Lantern in the very vocal Very First Breath featuring Irfane.

Ross Birchard, affectionately "HudMo" to his fans, shows his approachable side in the radio-ready Very First Breath. Catchy and light, it works beautifully as a bait hook for the rest of what is sure to be about a baker's dozen of his historically successful experiments in bass and percussion the likes of which can lay claim to assisting names as big as Kanye West on their way to the top.

Watch the creepy teaser video for the album featuring what we suspect may be the title track here, and pre-order Lantern here before it drops in June on Warp.
