DBA: rRoxymore, Karen Gwyer (Live), Kerrie, Semtek

In 2020 Don’t Be Afraid Recordings celebrates its tenth anniversary, a huge milestone for a label which has been ever-present in underground music throughout the last decade. Founded in 2010, Don’t Be Afraid has organically evolved from its humble beginnings to become a vital and consistent outpost for underground techno, house and experimentally edged electronic music. Originally a simple outpost for founder Semtek, the label now boasts an international roster of acclaimed artists including Karen Gwyer, Differ-ent, rRoxymore and MGUN.
To mark the occasion, DBA host the main room at Corsica Studios with a lineup showcasing the sound the label has become well-known for. RRoxymore heads up the bill, fresh off the release of her critically acclaimed Face To Phase LP which dropped in late 2019. DBA stalwart Karen Gwyer performs live following the release of Faces On Ankles, her most dancefloor-friendly material to date, and new signing Kerrie, who turned heads with her Before Calm EP will make her first appearance on a DBA event.
In the second room, North London party-starters Kindred bring the bass with Copenhagen’s Solid Blake, Fauzia of Six-Figure Gang, and residents Hollie, Ill Evans and Noah Tucker.
