Semtek channels vintage New York house on Four Dubs EP

The UK club favorite will release on his Don’t Be Afraid label for the first time since 2011.

Don’t Be Afraid boss Semtek has announced the release  his first 12″ on the label in almost six years, the Four Dubs EP.

The UK club producer launched the Don’t Be Afraid label back in 2010 as an outlet for his own productions, and his since blossomed into one the country’s best labels, releasing music from Mr. Beatnick, MGUN, Karen Gwyer and more.

The Four Dubs EP is his first to arrive on Don’t Be Afraid since 2011’s Pizza 12″, and the first release from the artist since the Bad Teeth 12″ on London’s Niche N Bump label in 2015.

According to a press release, the four-track EP “imagines a borrowed nostalgia for the early morning haze New York clubs like Red Zone, The World and Zanzibar with a contemporary twist.”

Stream opening track ‘Limetree’ below and grab the EP on 12″ and digital formats when it arrives on March 17. Earlier this month, Don’t Be Afraid released the first album from Detroit techno veteran DJ Bone’s Differ-Ent alias.
