Oh God. Mr Shitmat AKA Henry Collins is back. Did anyone see that piccy of him in Plan B as part of the Planet Mu article? He appears like an 18th century mortician man. Looks like the kinda freaky dude who'd be sizing you up for your coffin the moment he met you. Brrrrr! Anyway, he's wanting to kill off his slightly passe moniker and in true fashion he's delivered a swansong junglist memoir titled 'One Foot in the Rave' Harking back to the early-mid 90s amen break/hardstep scene, this is less fashioned from splattered breakcore beats and is infact a plausible & fun record that often recalls the likes of Remarc et al. Of course he abuses the purist essence, his breakdowns are sometimes deliciously twisted, he has a muted echo of a dog barking running through 'Sniffer Dogs', he then endorses the drum track from Snap's 'The Power' albeit sped up but regardless of the occasional pranksterish trick, this is a full on grooving party odyssey with some excellent production and impressive fills. His use of samples on this album is quite subtle too, Comedic pepperings that don't overpower the floor burning pace of the journey and the ecstatic frantic rhythms. Once this hits the student house bashes, it'll be accepted as a Shitty classic. Excellent to realise I can still listen to this man's deranged vision without wincing! CD/2x12"
