Don’t Be Afraid artist Mr. Beatnick contributes a mix of starry-eyed house for the latest in the Dummy Mag mix series. Describing the mix, the in-demand producer said “There’s a few of the usual suspects, like a track from Lukid’s excellent album, a new track off Bnjmn’s new project, a friend of ours who goes by Do Re Me, a track off Paul White’s latest beat tape. The Vessel track is a big favourite, generally it’s a fun selection of some of my favourite people and things out there at the moment.”
LWE met up with Semtek at a local cafe in his East London neighborhood to talk about his start in music, making epic-length tracks in France and the importance of keeping his endeavors close-knit and personal. He also put together our 134th exclusive podcast, an energetic blend of house and techno that is a perfect mix of contemporary and classic styles.
