Out Now: Chicola ‘Cachengue’ EP

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.

Out Now: Dave Seaman ‘Rapscallion’s Revenge’ EP

Being the co-owner of Selador certainly has its advantages as Dave Seaman knows only too well. The ability to release your own productions on your own label is of course, one of the perks of the job because quite frankly, who’s gonna stop you?! So no sooner has ‘Rodales’ (his contribution to the recent 3D EP) done it’s business, than the Boss Man pulls rank once again to deliver another lovingly crafted EP.

To be fair, it’s a release more than deserved of its place on the schedule. An EP of consummate artistry, the delightfully titled ‘Rapscallion’s Revenge’ comes in four variations; 2 courtesy of Dave himself with further interpretations coming from German upstarts Township Rebellion and Irish Techno master Ian O’Donovan. It’s an explosion of melody and rhythm and acid house spirit all intricately woven into a rich techno tapestry. Or something like that 😉

OUT NOW: Dave Seaman, Darren Emerson & Danny Howells – 3D EP2

Danny Howells, Darren Emerson & Dave Seaman’s 3D Project is back on Selador with 3 more original productions from the intrepid trio. 

When three high ranking Acid House Generals world’s collide, the results were bound to produce something special and so it’s proved. 

Coming straight off the back of a highly successful tour of South America and a string of European Festival dates, the legendary threesome pick up where they left off on their debut EP earlier this year with another high calibre release. 

This time Dave paves the way with ‘Rodales’, a huge weapon in his sets over the last few months, it’s all about the prolonged teasing build,  bass drop payoff and distorted melodies. All good things come to those who wait! 

Then Darren steps up with the wonderfully titled ‘BUB’, a multi-faceted mystical beast straight out of the leftfield. Balearic Techno anyone? 

And finally, Danny drops a banger in the form of ‘Violencia’, an acid tinged, peak time roller that’ll singe your eyebrows if you stand too close. Hot! 

In a way, the EP neatly encapsulates the 3D project as a whole. Individually, each is a winner in it’s own right but collectively, it’s greater than the sum of its parts. Three is the magic number.

OUT NOW: JOBE ‘VII’ EP

If you’ve been paying attention, you’ll already know that we’re big fans of JOBE here at Selador. It should be obvious really. This is already his 4th appearance of the year for us including contributions on each of the last 3 – Consecutively! Keep up 😉

It’s fair to say Simon is having a stellar year thus far with releases on Monaberry & Steyoyoke interspersed between our quartet of Selador outings that included both a collaboration and a remix in cahoots with Acumen, an appearance on our recent Showcase 7 compilation and now this well deserved, long overdue stand-alone EP to boot.  

Here, Simon serves up two originals for us to chose from. Decide between the dazzling magnetism of the title track ‘VII’ or the best-in-class opulence of ’Serein’. Both meticulously crafted down to the finest detail by a producer on top of his game. And if that wasn’t enough, the EP also boasts the rather extravagant bonus of a Mathias Schober remix. Under his SHOW-B guise, Mathias delivered one of Selador’s finest ever moments with his remix of Jaap Ligthart & Alice Rose’s ‘I Know Change’ back in 2015 so naturally we’re delighted to have him back on the label. 

Something of a family reunion then..  but without the dysfunctional drunk Uncle!

Out Now: Selador Showcase – The Magnificent Seventh

 

The inimitable Selador Showcase is back for it’s seventh instalment and returns fully stocked.

From Sweden to Argentina, Belgium to Belarus, Germany to the UK and the USA to Ukraine, we really have raided the musical larder to bring a fully international flavour to proceedings. 

The banquet commences with Zoo Brazil at the top table offering up a veritable feast in the form of ‘Across My Heart’. As you’d expect from such a highly regarded producer with years of experience under his belt, the Swede brings an refined, assured presence to the menu. Bon appetite. 

Our second dish sees Nico Morano take the baton with ‘Bratan’, a menacing chunk of melodic Tech house. Nico maybe a new name to many but the Belgian is proving himself to be quite a force in his native homeland and we reckon his reputation is set to spread like proverbial wildfire. Box fresh.  

Next up we welcome back JOBE to the label straight off the back of his recent success alongside Acumen with ‘Uncontrollable’ on our 5th Birthday EP series. Once again he plunges head first into futuristic territory for a hyper cool intergalactic journey. 

We turn our attention to Interaxxis next who make their Seladorian debut with ‘Morning Without Sun’. The Argentinian duo have been causing quite a stir recently with releases for the likes of Sudbeat and Hope and this classy piece of work will only add further value to their stock. 

We then head to Los Angeles for a taste of West Coast action courtesy of Freddy Be & Savi Leon. An expertly crafted slice of sunshine house, ‘Whatcha Wanna Say’ takes it’s lead from Datar’s turn-of-the-millennium classic ‘B’ and melds it into something entirely befitting of a new generation. Hot! 

Sixth in line and it’s Dmitry Molosh & Stas Drive’s turn to take centre stage with ‘Pleiades’, a modernistic progressive workout full of style and attitude that will make even the most hardened listener sit up and notice. Take heed. 

And last but by no means least TH;EN takes us to the finishing line with energy to burn. The German plays ’Checkers’ to perfection capturing the very essence of our Showcase compilations… Extraordinary club music. 

Seven of the best to get your teeth into… Seladorian style!
