There are three artists with the name "Semantics": 1) Semantics is a short lived experimental trio from the 80's Downtown New York scene, consisted of Samm Bennett (drums, percussions), Ned Rothenberg (saxes, clarinet), Elliott Sharp (guitar, bass) They recorded only two albums the self titled in 1985 and Bone of Contention in 1987. Their style could be described as post-punk, Their jazz leanings are evident though, as well as Captain Beefheart influences. They could be compared to the likes as This Heat or Discipline era King Crimson. 2) The Semantics were a southern power-pop band from the early 1990s. The band consisted of Will Owsley (who later recorded as Owsley), Millard Powers, and Zak Starkey. Ben Folds was also an early member of the band. They played a style of direct, uptempo power pop that was reminiscent of Matthew Sweet, Fountains of Wayne, or Ben Folds Five. The band recorded their debut album "Powerbill" for Geffen Records, but were unceremoniously dropped by the label just before the album's scheduled 1993 release due to perceived unmarketability--it was too pop for grunge-soaked alternative radio, but too alternative for pop format radio. The album was eventually released in Japan in 1996 and sold modestly, and despite its rarity it is often hailed as a touchstone of '90s power-pop. 3) Semantics is a Drum & Bass Producer from Britain. Born and raised in Croydon, South London the producer Semantics – real name Glen Donoghue – is making waves through the drum and bass scene with his hip hop and early jungle influenced productions. With releases on the Belgian inprint Mindtech Recordings and more forthcoming on labels such as Subculture Music, Trust in Music, Order in Kaos and Abducted Recordings, Semantics is set to push the envelope of the future dance scene. With colaborations and dj support from established acts such as Future Signal, Paperclip, Treo, Block Dodger, Jade, Maztek, Kalu, Ignite, QO and Exorcist, Semantics dj sets and tracks are rocking dancefloors worldwide!
