Podcast by Don't Be Afraid boss Semtek

Head of the Don’t Be Afraid label, London-based DJ and producer Semtek, aka Benjamin Roth, has been building a steady reputation, both behind the decks, wielding everything from experimental house to Detroit electro, and in his East London studio, via tracks such as the Craig Richards endorsed ‘Lotos Eaters’.

He’s got an equally strong ear for A&Ring, as Disco Nihilist’s forthcoming ‘Money Don’t Matter Tonight’ EP shows (including the heavenly ‘Midnight to St. John’). For this podcast he presents a bunch of analogue jackers that take in everything from warehouse acid to deeper vocal cuts. Check out Don’t Be Afraid’s next party, featuring special guest Kowton, at a secret East London loft space on Saturday 28th September.
