Sub Sub – Past [1992]

A masterstroke of ambient/downtempo from The Doves, formerly known as Sub Sub. The whole Coast EP is a stormer and should be required listening for anyone with a passing interest in music. This is the second track on Side A and is probably the most laid back of all. Its a ridiculously simple composition, some bongos, a shaker, a snare and a catchy as hell bassline. But as with all simple things that work, the parts become so much greater than the whole.

From Discogs
This would have to be one of the finest Progressive House EP’s of 1992, if not all time! The quality of production on this entire EP is the finest you will ever come across. Classy tunes all round. Summer bliss. Both “Inside Out” and “Inside Of This” are the big stand out tunes on this EP. They’ve also, all so subtley, segued these two tunes for not stop listening bliss. The only place you’ll find the track “Inside Out” is on this EP!! “Inside Of This” is featured on Sub Sub’s CD “Full Fathom Five”. Also included on this CD is the 3rd amazing tune found on the flip side of the Coast EP titled “Past”. This tune is pure balaeric, lazing under the Ibiza sun, sipping on your favourite cocktail, bliss!! Ahhhhhhh……

Absolutely stunning EP of mellow funky beats. ‘Past’ is one of my all time favourite chill out tunes, a stunning ambient masterpiece with a sublime guitar that transports you to your favourite overseas destination. This is just pure balearic bliss throughout. As rare as rocking horse shit or you will almost certainly have to pay top dollar for this record. Sub Sub later went on to become the Doves (quite successful Indie band) but this is by far their finest moment.
