Semtek’s Don’t Be Afraid label have announced a run of three more releases before the end of 2013.
Launched back in 2010 as an outlet for Semtek’s own productions, the London producer’s label will be rounding off a prolific 2013 with releases from Neville Watson, Adjowa and the artist formerly known as Darling Farah. Having just released the ‘Synthetes’ compilation from recent Youtube sessions contributor Mr.Beatnick alongside cuts from MGUN, Halvtrack and Disco Nihilist earlier in the year, Don’t Be Afraid are preparing to drop a hat-trick of new material on the main imprint as well as sub labels DBA Dubs and DBA Special Editions.
Seasoned UK producer and frequent KiNK collaborator Neville Watson leads the way with the second release on DBA Special Editions, the techno focused ‘Hot & Heavy’ EP. The main label will then follow that up with the debut release from Farah, the London based producer from Detroit ( via UAE ) originally known as Darling Farah. The man born Kamau Baaqi will use his new pseudonym to deliver the ‘Metal Irene’ EP, a five tracker that looks set to reinforce his reputation for wide-ranging versatility.
Finally, the transatlantic flavoured DBA Dubs series will give a label debut to Adjowa, with his ‘Science and Soul’ 12″. With Neville Watson’s EP coming on December 2nd and the other two releases following a week later, you can head over to the label’s Soundcloud page for previews, whilst you can check out artwork and tracklistings below.
