Here at Selador Towers we like to pride ourselves in our diverse electronic music tastes and we’ve always tried to reflect that in our output. Throughout our short history we’ve run the gamut from Deep House to Techno and Tech House to Electronica stopping off at every flavour in-between. We’ve never been ones for pigeonholes. Horrible claustrophobic smelly things 😉
This philosophy could not be more evident than right here on our next offering. Out of Denmark we bring you Gjone (pronounced Yoh-na) with two very different sounding original productions.
First up ’Journey Man’ is an assured, distinctive piece of work, thanks in the main to it’s idiosyncratic vocal which elevates it head and shoulders above the crowd. Got more hooks than a nightclub cloakroom this one.
Next comes the altogether more raw, bumpy house flavourings of ’Shadowdancer’. Contemporary, quirky, funky, deep house at it’s finest. Bad ass.
On the remix tip, it’s all aboard the Techno train with Pete Oak at the helm. Pitching down the vocal and fuelled by driving beats and a thunderous baseline, this is peak time, dark room business.
And finally, rounding off the package in fine style, we welcome Inxec with his trademark techie beats underpinning an archetypal stabby motif that has style to burn.
A release that pulls in four different directions yet still manages to retain a unified outlook. Much like our label then 😉
Selador – Electronic House Music for all the family x
Following the success of his debut EP for Selador back in February and ahead of his forthcoming mix compilation for the legendary Global Underground series, Habischman returns to the label courtesy of a collection of remixes from some of the brightest lights on our radar.
Just Her takes care of the title track ‘The Way’, a meticulously constructed mix which first puts the vocal in the spotlight before unfolding into a pulsating final act.
Next, Tim Engelhardt takes us to a place where both ‘The Way’ & ‘Skin’ co-inhabit side by side. A place where parts from both tracks are utilised to create a unique spin on proceedings, a remix hybrid if you will.
Bastian Bux then dives head first into his debut remix assignment and proves himself a natural. His rework of ‘All I Dream’ is peak time business administered with all the capability and technique of a maestro.
And so another chapter in the Selador story is hatched. Written big and bold with passion to burn.
Selador Recordings – It’s what we do.
Christian D Nox & Frank Beckers are electronic music royalty. The dynamic German production duo have been consistently dropping Techno bombs in all the right places for well over a decade and that shows no sign of abating anytime soon.
So after the massive remix they did for Selador last year on Quivver’s ‘Wait For You’ we felt it only right and proper to invite them to hold court with their own release on the label, a request they promptly accepted.
And so here you have it. The lead track ‘Salt’ channels a little secret that the knowledgable ones amongst you will be familiar with, an homage to a certain sweet father figure of years gone by. Whilst ‘114 Miles To Go’ showcases their ability to switch gears with an almost dark nu-disco feel permeating through it’s veins.
Then two producers who’s stars are very much in the ascendency, Third Son & Roy Rosenfeld take up the remix mantle with aplomb, each submitting assignments that merit an A+ rating by anyone’s high standards.
Collectively, there’s a veritable feast of talent contained herein. Music to suit both day and night time vibes. Group hug!
From Selador with love
After popping his Seladorian cherry on our recent Showcase Volume 3 EP, Swiss producer Jeremy Vieira, aka Several Definitions, follows our tried and trusted route by now upgrading to his very own full, artist release.
The Dark Triangles EP drops with two box fresh originals and the opening track nails it’s colours to the mast from the off. Taking it’s lead from those halcyon days of the ‘90s, it’s heads down Melodic Techno seasoned with a liberal sprinkling of euphoria. Reach for the lasers!
Meanwhile, it’s little brother ‘Distress Call’ has crashed the party. Bringing a dark techy vibe to proceedings that harnesses all the disrespect and youthful swagger only a younger sibling can truly express. In yer face!
Alongside them come a couple of Grade A remixes from two wingmen that everyone would love on their team sheet…
First up, Reset Robot takes us into the kind of Techno territory for which he’s become renowned. Serious music for strapping systems in darkened rooms. A strobelight symphony not for the faint hearted.
Finally Florian Kruse makes his debut for the label with a rework of ‘Near From You’ which first saw the light of day on the aforementioned Showcase compilation. Whilst retaining all of the original’s key elements, the German pumps it up with the kind of steroid injection that would send even Lance Armstrong weak at the knees!
All in all, an intoxicating dose of audio sonic cat nip if ever we’ve heard one.
Selador Recordings –
The more you listen, the more you hear.
It’s just over a year since Alice Rose first featured on Selador on what has now become one of the label’s bone fide classics. Her collaboration with Jaap Ligthart on ‘I Know Change’ was something of a milestone in our history as it transcended allegiances and genres with everyone from Sven Vath to Solomun and Tenaglia to Tiesto united in their love and support.
Now she’s back, with a new studio partner, but with comparably devastating results. Teaming up with fellow Berlin resident, Malbetrieb, the duo have delivered another lesson in first class deepness. A piece of unerring electronic beauty.
Label fave Quivver then shines brightly with a couple of very special remixes. Equally radiant in style and quality, the Vocal Mix oozes class from every pore, whilst the Dub ploughs a tougher furrow aimed firmly at the dance floor. Sophistication personified.
Not to be outdone, Selador’s own Steve Parry also brings his own A game to proceedings. Drenched in subtle acid goodness, this was a highlight of his set at Selador’s 3rd Birthday party at the Ministry Of Sound and also of Dave Seaman’s recent guest mix for John Digweed’s Transitions Show. Top notch.
There’s really no escaping this one. It’s hotter than Margot Robbie in the midday sun. And then some.
