So Suburban Base have unearthed a load of tapes that they say haven't been looked at before...

Looking at those pictures, I'd thought most of them had already been done when they reissued their back catalogue digitally a few years back, though do remember a few people at the time complaining about some of the older releases being vinyl rips...

Interestingly though, I did encounter something of what appears to be an unreleased tune by D'Cruze whilst interrogating the publishing database at GEMA last year - "GONNA GIVE YOU MY LOVE"

workcode: 3630365

Going through the works codes sequentially around that point, it does seem it was of a batch of Suburban Base related registrations all from around early summer 1994, but the track name itself doesn't ring any bells for me. Anyone any ideas? :)

I remember reading somewhere Subbase didn't like giving their tracks out on Dubplate, so there doesn't seem to be much out there thats beenn discovered in mixes etc (other than tracks they signed after being around on dub)


These 2 tracks were played from DAT on Format FM, Sept 1993 :

Q Bass – Gun Connection (Prototype Version) – Unreleased
The Noise Of Art – Rollin Deep… In The Realm Of The Purple Diamond (Prototype Version) – Unreleased


The Noise Of Art track sounds quite different to the released versions

Looks like they've been busy putting out some 'from the vaults' type releases

Marvellous Cain - The Dubplate EP https://www.suburban...vinyl/subbase80
Krome & Time - The Lost & Found Tapes https://www.suburban...vinyl/subbase81
Phuture Assassins - Future Sound Remixes https://www.suburban...vinyl/subbase77

That Phuture Assassins 12" seems to have an exclusive tune I've never heard before, an unreleased 1995 remix by Dead Dred. Did this turn up on any tapes from back in the day?
