Selador head honcho Dave Seaman returns to the fray, notching up another original release which now takes him into double figures for the label, an impressive tally which doesn’t even take into account the substantial stack of remixes he’s also contributed over the imprint’s 6 year history.
Of course, as co-founder of the label with his trusted partner in crime, Steve Parry he holds some sway on what makes it onto the release schedule but thems the perks of the job, whatcha gonna do about it?!
His latest creation, lovingly entitled ‘Thonk!’ is the result of a few lost afternoons spent in the vaults of his extensive vinyl collection trawling for obscure audio clips to form the basis of this meticulous audio collage. It was a painstaking process that required patience to burn but as always, the devil is in the detail. Time well spent.
His partner of choice for this particular release is Italian producer Whitesquare, who’s proved himself to be a more than capable wingman serving up an outstanding rework that’s already being championed by the likes of Solomun and &ME. File under ‘bass heavy super chic groover’ and crank it up!
Team Selador – Guardians of the good stuff.
Spanish Producer EdOne is rapidly becoming something of a star player in the ongoing Selador story.
Just this year alone he’s made key contributions to our latest Showcase compilation and the recent Christian Nielsen EP and now with his own 3 track EP, let’s just say we’re rather enamoured his work right now. We’ve certainly got more riding on him than most.
The Never Alone EP showcases his range perfectly, from the rousing ingenuity of the lead track, through the pure wonky brilliance of ‘LFO Hammer’ to the mystical allure of ’Simplicity’, the strength, depth and consistency of his productions are clear to see and even more importantly.. hear!
Team Selador – backing winners since forever!
As the dust settles on our 100th release celebrations with all its pomp and ceremony, it’s time to get back to life, back to reality, to what we do best, back to the business of serving up the freshest, quality club music from some of the World’s finest Electronic Music Producers.
And what better way to do that than with a debut EP for the label from Christian Nielsen. It’s likely that anyone with even a passing interest in dance music will have encountered the Danish Producer’s work at some point. Through his releases on such esteemed labels as Kompakt, Toolroom and FFRR, his resumé speaks for itself.
Here he offers a brace of heavenly creations in ‘After Midnight’ & ‘Indestructible’ with two of our most trusted label stalwarts, EdOne & Florian Kruse both chipping in with their own perspectives, adding further weight to an already hefty package.
In many ways, this EP exemplifies all we stand for with its finger firmly on-the-pulse of contemporary dance music, full of flair and imagination yet unwavering in its primary objective, to light up the dance floor.
Here’s to the next hundred.
Team Selador – Back in the saddle
In today’s disposable, here-today-gone-tomorrow world of Electronic Music, it can, on occasion, feel like there are more DJs, producers & record labels than there are actual clubs and clubbers. It’s a densely populated and over saturated market place, where it’s becoming increasingly difficult to cut through the noise and stand out from the crowd. Unless that is, you know a thing or two about making a name for yourself.
Step forward Dave Seaman & Steve Parry, Acid house lifers with decades of experience between them who 6 years ago decided to join forces and embark on another chapter in their illustrious careers by setting up independent label, Selador Recordings. Together they have carved out a reputation as providers of the finest in Melodic House & Techno and many of the subtle shades in between. They stubbornly refuse to be constricted to the kind of niche genre policy many of today’s labels seem to adopt and it’s a formula that has served them well, attracting some of the best producers in the business to rally behind the Seladorian battle cry.
As the imprint reaches its 100th release, by way of celebration, Dave & Steve have assembled a crack team of producers to tackle a handful of the label’s landmark back catalogue that had not previously been remixed. Until now!
Calling on André Hommen, D-Nox & Beckers, Doc Martin, Kotelett & Zadak, Moonwalk and Petar Dundov to reinterpret the collaborative works of Dave & Steve themselves, Gorge & Joeski, Guy Mantzur & Lonya, Cristoph & Quivver and Luke Brancaccio & Tim Healey – it’s a mightily impressive cast.
A milestone release befitting of the occasion then. A toast to centurion status and to everyone who has shown love and support for the label thus far. Thing is, you can’t help thinking the journey has really only just begun.
Happy Birthday Selador – A cut above.
