Diplo & Damian Lazarus – Don’t Be Afraid (feat. Jungle)

Opening with a hypnotic beat, “Don’t Be Afraid” is a mesmerizing tribal-infused deep-house track with atmospheric builds and warm sonic textures.  Featuring soothing vocals that glide effortlessly, the release is a perfect melting pot of sounds that fuse Diplo’s ease with Damian Lazarus’s techno wit.

“We met Diplo in LA a few years back and got chatting about working together.  We sent him a few ideas that we’d been cooking up and he took a melody and worked it in this banger. We’re really happy everyone else can enjoy it now too.”


The track comes paired with a music video that further drives the track’s tribal sound home. Directed by J Lloyd of Jungle and Charlie Di Placido, the visual features a tribe of diverse dancers moving to the single’s sensual beats. 

This track marks the latest offering from Diplo’s house/dance record label Higher Ground.  Since its inception in 2019, the label has been releasing a string of hit tracks that include the most recent  “One By One” with Elderbrook and Andhim in addition to three number one U.S. Dance hits for Diplo that include the Grammy-nominated SIDEPIECE collaboration “On My Mind,” “Looking For Me” with Paul Wolford and Kareen Lomax and “Turn Back Time” with Sonny Fodera.  For additional information related to Higher Ground, please visit its official Facebook Page.
