West Acyd Shelter (Photonz’ LXF Remix)
East Acyd Shelter
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 Lisbon via Essex style to the proceedings with an “I can’t believe it’s not garage” take on Semtek’s beat, proving yet again that they are a force to be reckoned with in 2011. The B-side “East Acyd Shelter” is a sparse analogue workout that would be at home as much in legendary and much missed Kings Cross hangout The Key, as it would in a James Bond soundtrack of the Timothy Dalton era.
