Led by heavy wobbly basslines and pulsing synth pads, Atiq & EnK's debut album 'Fear of the Unknownæ exhibits a dark yet airy approach to beat-driven electronic music, injecting each song with an unmistakable groove and flow. Striking atmospheric breakdowns facilitate transitions among the infectious beat movements, while subtle glitches and echoing snares accentuate the overall flow of each song. Sometimes brooding, sometimes wondrous, "Fear of the Unknown" manages to hold the listener's attention throughout with a steady and cohesive tapestry of expansive beatwork, contorted melodies, and enveloping atmospheres that all seem effortless and natural to these talented new Dutch sound designers. A remarkable and impressive debut, "Fear of the Unknown" burrows deep into the subconscious and ascends into an unknown inner universe. Are you afraid of the unknown, or will you embrace it?
