The London label continues to join the dots between underground club music with its latest signings.

London’s Don’t Be Afraid imprint has announced details of its next two releases, from Berlin’s rRoxymore and Swing Ting resident Samrai.

Samrai – one of the names behind the Manchester-based Swing Ting night and label – brings his blend of UK funky, dancehall and other styles to the latest DBA Dubs release, which includes a track called ‘Khadi’.

The B-side for Samrai’s 10″ features a remix from veteran Michigan producer James T. Cotton (also known as Dabrye and Charles Manier) under his JTC alias, which turns it into a “Detroit house stepper.”

Berlin Community Radio resident rRoxymore (who landed in last week’s FACT round-up of the week’s best mixes) makes her DBA debut with the Organ Smith 12″.

The French producer’s DBA 12″ follows releases for Planningtorock’s Human Level label, Macro and Videogamemusic, and features three tracks of “nervous grooves, bewitching cosmic synths, twisted snippets of acoustic instruments and other intriguing sounds.”

Samrai was last seen on production duties alongside Swing Ting’s Platt and Murlo for dancehall MC Fox’s killer debut EP Musik, which was released this summer.

Samrai’s record is released on October 21, while rRoxymore’s 12″ lands on November 4. Don’t Be Afraid will also be holding two Halloween parties in Manchester and Bristol later this month – more details on those here.
