To crown what has been a remarkable year for the label, Selador sign off 2018 with a vocal anthem that is sure to be a highlight of many nights out across the festive period. The handiwork of burgeoning Russian production duo Blaktone, it comes lovingly packaged with remixes from 3 label favourites Nicolas Masseyeff, Just Her & Raw District. A veritable embarassment of riches, we may well have gone too far this time!
Happy Holidays from us to you. With bells on. x
Since it’s inception back in early 2017, the 3D project of Darren Emerson, Danny Howells and our own Dave Seaman has caught fire, set ablaze by two highly successful EPs on Selador and tours across 3 continents.
Both EPs, released earlier this year, featured exclusive individual tracks from the highly respected threesome but came with no remixes. Until now. Enter three of the best producers in the business, all carefully chosen by Darren, Danny & Dave personally to administer their own portrayals Premier League style.
First up, Darren ‘Dubspeeka’ Beale dispatches a no-nonsense, Deep Techno rework of Darren’s ‘Bub’ from EP 2 with a meticulous precision. It’s moodier than a teenager whose had their smartphone confiscated. Just the way we like it 😉
Then, Jamie ‘Jimpster’ Odell presents a masterclass in remixing on Danny’s ‘Earthlings X’. Utilising all the original parts to great effect whilst adding a liberal sprinkling of his own magic, one day all remixes will be done this way. Textbook.
And finally, Marius ‘Re.You’ Maier takes charge of his own lesson in the art of remixing, dropping a perfectly executed adaptation of Dave’s ‘Rodales’ that’s bursting at the seams with flair and imagination. Wowsers!
It’s re-rub heaven. Our cup runneth over.

French Producer Acumen is very much part of the furniture these days here at Selador HQ. So much so, it’s high time he had his own key to the front door! With several releases already under his belt not to mention a string of remixes, he’s now back with another 3 tracker that’s all set turn heads and ruffle a few feathers in the process.
We get sent a lot of music from Antoine. Prolific doesn’t even cover it. No sooner had he dropped an artist album earlier in the summer for his own Time Has Changed imprint, than 3 weeks later, he sent us another album’s worth of material, all of the highest quality. Our only problem was picking out our 3 favourites. Hard work or hardly working? You decide 😉
So here they are. In all their glory. Take your pick.
It’s a win, win situation.
Team Selador – Someone’s gotta do it!
Spanish Producer, EdOne makes a welcome return to Selador following his highly acclaimed debut last year and again his production prowess is on display for all to see. Back with a brace of badass originals that instantly grabbed the attention of label bosses Seaman & Parry who were overheard to say they stood out from the daily avalanche of demos like “a porcupine in a nudist colony” 😉
‘Bipolar’ sets the tone with it’s brooding percussive backbone and climatic melodic surges while the equally impressive ‘Devastate’ lives up to it’s name with a heady mix of rich dark melodies and spicy Eastern flavours leaving a full-blown trail of destruction. An intoxicating concoction indeed.
Adding fuel to the fire, our old friend, John ‘Quivver’ Graham then lends a hand on remix duties turning ‘Bipolar’ into a finely tuned specimen drawn from a perfectly judged sound palette like only John knows how. As per 🙂
Selador Recordings – Just the right amount of wonk!
The Tel Aviv electronic music scene has been a fertile ground for DJ/Producers of a deep melodic (some may say “Progressive”) persuasion in recent years. Centred around such legendary clubs as The Cat & The Dog and Haoman 17 (both now defunct), there has been a long list of talent to emerge out of their legacies.
Chico Shuella (aka Chicola) is one such artist. A player whose wealth of experience and expertise shines through here on 3 tracks of the utmost quality and distinction. From ‘Cachengue’s laid-back swagger to the self-assured splendour of ‘Mandragora’ and the rolling peak time energy of ‘The Black Hall’, it’s an EP for all occasions. No remixes required.
