After a 2016 to remember, Selador kickstart the new year with the fourth instalment of our acclaimed Showcase series. Putting down our marker for the year, the label has gathered together a formidable compilation that scales enviable heights. In fact, we’d go as far as to say it’s our best Showcase yet! Featuring a mix of established names side by side with several newcomers too, the release will be split into two easily digestible parts so no-one gets overlooked amongst this embarrassment of riches.
Part 1 commences with el patròn, Dave Seaman spearheading the attack courtesy of ‘Voodoo Disarray’. Employing a vocal snippet that fans of his classic Renaissance Awakenings compilation will instantly recognise, this has been a secret weapon of the Selador boys for several months. What kind of voodoo do you do?
Dee Montero & Dimitri Yakov then return to the label with a collaboration of some magnitude. The duo both reside in Ibiza for the majority of the year and the sunshine soaked vibes of the White Isle most definitely shine through on ‘Alba’. Keeping it classy.
Next up is another collaboration that hits the spot as Namito & Amine K make their Seladorian debut with ‘Falling Serpent’. A twisting and turning journey from two masters of their craft who we’re honoured to have on the label. Dance music from another dimension.
Native Behavior may be a new name to some of you but we believe the Californian is destined for big things. ‘Silence’ is his inaugural release and is a sure sign of things to come. A remarkably accomplished debut.
Anii is another artist on the rise following recent releases on Global Underground and Third Son’s Polymath. Here she delivers what we believe is her finest work to date with the distinctive and sublime ’Soma’. Sounds of the supernatural.
And finally, wrapping things up for the first part of this fearsome compilation, Marymoon joins the Selador ranks with ‘Fantom Us’. The St. Petersburg descendent and resident of the White Ocean Camp at Burning Man festival drops a monster direct from the desert. Battle-ready.
And that my friends, concludes Part 1. Look out for Part 2 following hot on it’s heels. It’s equally as devastating.

With the year-end fast approaching, here at Selador Towers we’re starting to reflect on what has been a remarkable twelve months for the label. From our 3rd Birthday at Ministry Of Sound, London to three special dates during Space Ibiza’s final season to reaching the milestone of our 50th release, 2016 has been one to remember. To cap things off, we’re planning on going out in a blaze of glory thanks to Portuguese born, Berlin based producer Joal who returns to the fold following his Uncover to Discover EP of 2015. This time we’re treated to a majestic full length vocal courtesy of the guest appearance of Piermaria Chapus, whilst label boss Steve Parry together with two other members of our extended family, Jozif & Several Definitions are drafted in on remix duties. It’s a four pronged attack not to be messed with. Next level business. Thank you for all your support this year. Here’s to 2017 being even bigger and better.

Greetings friends, please step this way, the doctor will see you now. Yes, we are delighted to have one of the leading lights of our profession back on the Selador frontline as Dr John ‘Quivver’ Graham prescribes his Brand New Medicine EP. One of the last consignments to leave the Los Angeles lab that has been his home for the last 10 years before he relocates back to his beloved Coventry in the UK, this awesome foursome has all the necessary ingredients to knock your socks off.
The title track is archetypal Quivver with John’s own vocal refrain underpinned by a menacing bass and classic Electro & Techno influences. ‘Lights Down’ then comes in two very different flavours. Part 1 is unapologetically retro with it’s chunky bass and synth stabs getting right to the heart of the action whilst Part 2 heads off in a thoroughly modern Tech House direction – all pharmaceutically charged, single-minded, unabated energy. Finally ‘I Remember You’ tops things off with it’s understated groove and subtle on-trend sound palette. Not to be overlooked.
Together, this quartet is recommended daily or should symptoms persist but be careful on the dosage, you’re messing with the best 😉
