Rich Aucoin – The Fear

‘The Fear’ does so much foraging around in the first few seconds to suggest something rather good is on the way. Turns out it is a post-tropical effort that doesn’t as much rewrite the rules as repoint them in new and tangential ways. And the core swings on a bass line that is just beautifully ripe for remix, but even as is possesses a groove that will have everyone asking their local DJ who the hell is making that wonderful noise. Reminds me of Primal Scream circa ‘Screamadelica’, which is very much a great thing. And all from a Canadian artist who lives and breathes his art. He wakes up to the sound of the music he wrote while sleeping the night before, he then records it for his live shows that evening before giving it away for free to everyone who turns up. Bliss. KH
