The Selador Showcase series returns with another bumper edition of cherry picked beauties, all primed and ready for action over the forthcoming festive season.
The compilation draws a line under what has been another fantastic year for Selador and looks ahead to 2018 when the label plans to celebrate its 5th birthday in fine style. Watch this space.
The Sixth Statement is a thoroughly European affair comprising of half-a-dozen choice cuts that run the gamut of modern underground progressive house. The genre has been much maligned over the last decade but 2017 was undoubtedly the year it made a long overdue comeback in the credibility stakes and this EP is definitely testament to that.
From label boss Steve Parry’s peak time acid power of ‘303V’ to Dutch legend Jaydee’s mind melting ’Rasputin’, through Namito’s Berlin-styled melodic journey, ’Pyramid Scheme Of Ambitions’ and Stelios Vassiloudis & Nils Nuernberg’s expertly crafted modernist ’Eyes Turned Skywards’ before rounding off with two up and coming producers we predict are set for very bright futures. Out of Switzerland comes Ilona Maras with the lo-slung deep, druggy vibe of ‘Onegin’ oozing class from each and every pore and finally, from France, Dorian Craft unleashes a roof raising monster in ‘Pleia’.
A fitting end to a vintage year.
Progressive House is dead. Long live Progressive House.
Team Selador – Over & Out
Selador returns to the legendary Berlin club for a 3rd engagement this time taking up residence on one of the newly launched Thursday nights. Once again label bosses Dave Seaman & Steve Parry are behind the decks alongside our man in Berlin, Justin Massei plus we are also delighted to add esteemed Israeli producer Guy Mantzur to the bill for what is sure to be another night to remember. Bring your dancing shoes, you’re gonna need them!
Selador co-founder, Dave Seaman takes centre stage once again for his fifth release on the label following previous landmarks Naughty Forest, Justified Replacement Of Lulu, Nightfalls & Voodoo Disarray.
‘Control Freak’ is an intoxicating slice of modern day electronic house. Uncompromising and forthright, it goes straight for the jugular, led by an off-kilter top line and a solid arp workout, punctuated by irresistible percussion fills and that menacing vocal. This is Dave Seaman circa 2017.
Remixes come from Spanish legend, Uner who skilfully navigates a deeper, housier approach and also one of 2017’s breakout Techno stars, Italian producer, Frankyeffe who offers a very classy deep techno variation. End of night business.
Selador Recordings – Get Your Freak On!
Wally Lopez is nothing short of electronic music royalty. With a career spanning over 20 years, the Spaniard commands legendary status, especially in his native Spain thanks largely to his ever popular long running nightly national radio show, Insomnia. A dance music institution if ever there was one.
Here he returns to Selador with a wonderfully effervescent infectious monster entitled ‘Sphera’. Remix duties are expertly handled by Selador head honcho Steve Parry alongside Irish born, Berlin based producer Neil Flynn. Plus, there’s even room for us to squeeze in a special Lonya remix of Wally’s previous outing for Selador, the evergreen ’Focused’.
Selador Recordings – Making life a little sweeter, one tune at a time.
A weapon of choice for Selador head honchos Dave Seaman & Steve Parry for several months now, the time has finally come for Lonya’s return to the label with the massive ‘The World That Disappears’.
The Israeli producer drops flanked by remixes from Norway’s finest, Finnebassen, plus our favourite Frenchman, Acumen and long time friend of the label, Han Haak who all prove themselves up to the task. Three sterling reworks that inspire and excite in equal measures, all destined to light up your dance floors over the coming weeks.
Yet another blinding package. It’s what we do.
