Facial contortions of a bass player involving mouth twisting to the groove, chin dropping impossibly low, brow furrowing, a seemingly blank stare and a general unawareness of the condition. Also often accompanies Egyptian-style head gyrations.

bass face has two definitions;

1) a musical variation of the poker face in which the bass player of a given band wears an expression lacking any noticeable emotion, giving them an anonymous, emotionally distant appearance.

2) A bass face is the name given to the face a DJ or audiophile when a beat drops or a bassline is particularly compelling and gritty. This use of the term is used for electronic music, especially drum & bass, dubstep, and any other dance music where the main interest is the bassline.
1) "Did you see the show last night?"
"Yeah. The bass player took bass face to a new level. Fucker didn't even flinch the entire show."

2) ""Did you see DJ Sublo's face when that record hit?"

"Yeah, he must really enjoy that track, just look at his bass face! I can see why, this beat is filthy!"

1) The facial expression made by a bassist while playing a complex, tight groove. Caused by the brain's processing power being diverted to the hands, leaving the facial nerves uncontrolled and free to create various drunken, blank, derpy expressions. The bassist may be unaware he is doing it. Some physicians have speculated that bassists' brains may not be capable of controlling more than one region of the body at a time. This explains why they sleep with the ugly groupies.

2) A facial expression that only looks cute on Tal Wilkenfeld.
