Don't Be Afraid

Released: 5th September 2011 | 3 track techno ep
Pizza is the 6th release on Don't Be Afraid, coming hot on the heels of Mr. Beatnick's Synthetes EP and Semtek's West Acyd Shelter. The first track on the 12, Pizza, combines disco, techno and acid house elements on a broken funky base. Goons is a mean little track with caper-like 303s and a bumping trumpet bassline, backed by sweet drum machine beats. DJ 3000 takes the fundamentals of the original and replaces them with some of his own locally sourced Detroit ingredients, including a euphoric rhodes and some rich pads, to create a peak time banger for fans of Dirty Bird and the like.

Semtek is the moniker of Benjamin Roth, who runs the Don't Be Afraid label and plays at nights like Lostbahnhof, Legendary Children, Lasermagnetic and others, usually beginning with the letter 'L'. Born and raised in the Detroit enclave of Hamtramck, DJ 3000 was inundated with both the sights and sounds of his neighborhood, a highly ethnic area of Detroit, as well as with the influence of the music of his parent's native Albanian background. This diverse collection of influence shaped the make-up of both DJ 3000 and the vision of the Motech Records label.
