Semtek - Denny Island
Woah, nice surprise to see old friend Semtek back on wax.
Even nicer, to see it happen via the good house Rubadub.
The distro & shop from Glasgow, have been repping quality dance music from Detroit to Glasgow and beyond for over 30 years now. We'd say this record on their sporadic RAD- imprint, dishing up two no-fuss, yet mighty dancefloor cuts from London's Semtek, is further proof they can certainly be trusted to put out a solid record.
Read on, and make sure the volume is up as you do it:
'It is with honour & pleasure that we present to you the return of one of the finest in game! Active since god-knows-when, and equally known as artist, label owner, event promoter and all-round champion of all that’s right and proper, Semtek has cast a long shadow in the electronic underground over the past two decades. Ever the mercurial savant, Benji distils a wide range of influences that have shaped his various endeavours on his first 12” for us: from the darkside revivalism of DJ Persuasion through to the raw productions of L.M.Y.E, and even down to his earliest productions on DBA. RAD-SEM1 is two tracks of ice-cold club cuts that capture the chilly futurism of second wave Detroit Techno, the sparser fringes of UKG and the abyssal soundscapes of late 90s DnB. But as is characteristic of Semtek’s output, always far greater than the sum of its parts.'
>> yes Semtek.
