Bells by Semtek - Don't Be Afraid [DBA001] FLAC download included with physical items


A 4 track tech-house single (28m 37s) — released July 4th 2011 on Don't Be Afraid

On DBA001 Semtek combines elements of his many musical influences, with the skills he has carefully honed over time. The EP kicks off with the deep housey feel of ‘Bells’, before moving on to the tracky breakbeat undertones of ‘Key’, while the old-skool vibe of ‘Village’ completes the package. iDJ (left) DJ Magazine (right)(November) and Earpipe (December) Reviews DJ HELL Rating: 3/5 Comments: Oldscool flavour! Nice. Skrufff Top 5: (October 2) issue 434: 1: Semtek: Bells (Don’t Be Afraid) Featuring a bizarre though engaging American girl chatting about visiting Liverpool, over stripped, spaced out Berlin style beats, the track explodes into action via a hauntingly melancholic synth line which ebbs and flows with stunning effect. Colin Mr G McBean adds a masculine slamming techno remix though it’s Semtek’s original which stands out the most. Special. BILL BREWSTER DJ HISTORY I played the Mr G mix on my podcast last week. DJ 3000 UR / MOTECH Thanks for the great promo! ‘Bells’ is OK, I like the little bell melody and how he used it was cool. ‘Key’ is a cool electro track that’s for sure! The mixing is perfect so I can hear the guy really did his studying as the one sheet says! The Mr G mix is fucking dope! I need this on vinyl please please please!! That’s the Mr G I haven’t heard in a long time!! ‘Village’ track is nice and dirty electro but I prefer ‘Key’. DAN CURTIN Going with the original mix on this one, love how ‘The Bells’ tells a story verbally and musically, great melody that really gets under the skin! ORDE - SLAM Re: Tower Rating: 4/5 Comments: nice techno â€" warped. HARRI SUB CLUB I didn’t realise til I downloaded it that Colin had sent me his mix a wee while ago and I have been getting great reactions on it : ) the other tracks are all really good as well, full support. ROB MELLO This is good. Like the original tracks and Mr G's relentless take. ROLANDO I will definitely be playing the Mr G remix. Thanks. ORDE - SLAM Rating: 4/5 Comments: nice techno â€" warped.
