Various Fear of a Digital Planet
- Words: Robbie Mackey
- Label: Vinyl Republik
Canada sounds like a vibrant place on Vinyl Republik's (dare we say) nation-defining comp, Fear of a Digital Planet. Gathering the label's most promising artists-along with a handful of VR's Great White North cohorts-Fear is a diverse monster: part electro-gaze, part mini-house, and part nasty club bang. Toronto duo Original Recipe opens with the whirring lounge-fuzz and bass-thud of "The Chase," while Andrew Duke closes up shop with the techno-jog of "Dirty Sugar Water." Everything in between makes for a spotless comp, shooing missteps with a consummate cast that bodes incredibly well for Canada's future.
