DJ Sabrina The Teenage DJ shares highly nostalgic house single ‘Try Not To Be Afraid’ [Q&A]

Coming off their triumphant three-hour-long LP Charmed, DJ Sabrina The Teenage DJ is back with another nostalgia-soaked house offering. Similar to the bulk of their work, “Try Not To Be Afraid” draws on a wealth of samples and filters above a pounding kick drum, striking a distinct balance between a one-of-a-kind sound and an immediate familiarity. The feel-good single is another example showcasing why the anonymous producer is quickly gaining a reputation as a must-watch artist going forward. “Try Not To Be Afraid” arrives on MUTANTS VOL. 4: LOVE, a 40-track compilation featuring the likes of Dorian Electra, 2021 Grammy nominee Arca, and more. Additionally, the single marks Sabrina’s first collaborative release to date, featuring the talents of Delilah Brao, Luke Markinson, and Anyelisax.
