There will more than likely be one or two original acetates knocking around of this , that differ ever so sightly from the TP/ released versions. Slipmatt drops it as his last tune at Dreamscape 7 in 1993 ( didnt make the tape only caught on video!!). Have a listen here, drum breaks/bass sound slightly different

Heavy stomping break and big portemeto lead noise.
The B-side wasn't a fail, with Dj Ratty amongst others playing it a lot in techno sets.

I don't know why some review these tunes like they're analising some beard stroking jazz, it really makes me lol.

It's a simple production made for the dance floor and executed superbly by Slipmatt, those stomping breaks bounced out the speakers, you knew it was a slipmatt tune.

'commanding no lasting recollection' lol do me a lemon Mr pretentious it's only a bit of tongue in cheek hardcore.

I agree with Junkimunki...

Absolute classic hardcore from the man like Slipmatt aka SMD. The AA side is the one though, rinsed by the likes of Dougal and Slipmatt in 1994. Essential tunage.

The thing I love about the SMD series in general is the way they took well known ideas and mixed them into something completely original. Definately a series that influenced my own production style hugely.

The other great thing about all the SMD releases is that both sides of the vinyl are equally good, with the AA side always trying something a little more 'out of the box'.

Onto the third in the series and no let up in quality. The info side of the vinyl was rightly popular with noisy pianos and bass over big breatbeats. Sounding similar to the first release in places, yet different enough to be unique - you'll be hard pushed to miss this if you listen to any hardcore from circa 94/95. The flipside on the other hand remains the first SMD track to fall flat, commanding no lasting recollection.
