    Possibly my favourite Sub Base 12". Want You Now is the more polished/restrained and is a poignant masterpiece of chipmunkery, but I've got a real soft spot for BGB's unhinged melting pot of synths, chopped steppy breaks (from Demon Boyz 'Dett'), rave stabs and that bonkers Eek-a-Mouse sample. I have a long running theory that the female vocal in the intro is a manipulated/partially reversed sample from Kate Bush's 'This Woman's Work', but haven't yet managed to replicate the edit.

      Lots of love for bass goes boom and rightly so it's a great track. But want you now is pure nostalgia for me and in my humble opinion the better track.

        My fave Subbase artwork. Will get it framed someday.
        Excellent tunes too. D.O.P.E's remix probably the highlight though.

          Bass go Boom classic track that samples Peeni Walli up there with I Believe and Phuture Asassins Roots N Future Altern 8 Remix, Sonz Of A Loop-Bust That Groove from the great 92-93 era played on radio stations throughout the UK i presume. D Cruze had talent indeed, all being classic tunes indeed.

            One of my favourite Eps out on Suburban Base Records.
            D"cruze did a nice job on making this one,the "Bass Goes Boom" track, the deep reagge bass followed by ravey sounds and then at the middle of the track comes the best part, the Eek A Mouse vocals. Perfect combination style.
            A true anthem back in the days and even today when i spin in it at the clubs the crowd goes mad!!!
            Do check your bass though,while playing it loud, or it might blow up the speakers.
            I fist heard this tune back in 95,on a Slippmatt mix tape,
            and it has been my favarite tune of all time.
            Of course the flip side is a good tune as well, "Want You Know",but not as the Bass Goes Boom!
            And i"m sure many people agree with me.
            I was very lucky when i got this EP, last year!
