the other side / bruce's 'black ice' mix
Bristol’s Few & Far Between shine the spotlight on a rare Sub-Love track from the vaults. Originally released in 1992 on an Earth Recordings white label, now lovingly remastered from the original DAT tape. An anomaly in the duo’s catalogue, 'The Other Side' diverts from their signature hardcore and breaks sound in the form of a techno/speed garage hybrid influenced by the early Warp Records releases. The track opens with classic 90s pads, kicks and stuttering breaks, before being transformed by a throbbing bass line.
Label owners Sam Hall and Ongo Gablogian have enlisted friend and Hessle Audio affiliate Bruce for the B-side, who has reshaped the original elements into future-facing dancehall-infused techno in the form of his ‘Black Ice Mix’.
