West Acyd Shelter

Don't Be Afraid

Released: 23rd May 2011 | 3 track house ep
The fourth release on Don't Be Afraid is a reinterpretation of one of the most important jazz funk records of the 1970's. Semtek rebuilds the legendary hook from scratch over a disorienting range of acid, broken and techno accoutrements leaving a rolling monster that might set dancefloors alight. Photonz bring their unique Lisbon via Essex style to the proceedings with an I can't believe it's not Garage take on Semtek's beat, proving yet again that they are a force to be reckoned with in 2011. The B-side East Acyd Shelter is a sparse analogue workout that would be at home as much in legendary and much missed Kings Cross hangout The Key, as it would in a James Bond soundtrack of the Timothy Dalton era.
