Pizza is the 6th release on Don’t Be Afraid. 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.
The fourth release on Don’t Be Afraid “West Acyd Shelter” takes one of the most important jazz funk records of the 1970’s as its starting point. Semtek rebuilds the legendary hook from scratch over a disorienting range of acid, broken and techno accoutrements leaving a tweaked out bassline stepper. Photonz bring their unique style to the proceedings with an “I can’t believe it’s not garage” take on Semtek’s beat. The B-side “East Acyd Shelter” is a sparse analogue workout.
