Out Now: Selador Showcase – The Ninth Wave Compilation

The latest instalment of our Showcase compilation series lands with a trumpeted fanfare heralding the Ninth Wave of exclusive new cuts from a selected handful of the Selador roster. 

Neatly coinciding with the label’s annual adventure to the Amsterdam Dance Event where this year we will kick start our freshly formed Seladoria parties at Club NL on October 20th, it’s almost as if we planned it this way! 😉

Leading from the front, label bosses Dave Seaman & Steve Parry both contribute with individual productions. The former unveiling his huge ‘Donkey Engine’ production that has been a staple in his sets throughout the summer. Afro Techno anyone? 

Steve meanwhile is finally ready to share his tribute to a club that holds a special place in our hearts. Selador have enjoyed a series of fondly remembered parties at Watergate over the last few years and ‘Waterfloor’ is a paean to those treasured memories in Berlin. Fantastisch!

One of Dave & Steve’s long time friends and all round top geezer, the man like Danny Howells then returns to the label following the huge success of his ‘Earthlings X’ release of 2018 with the sublime ‘Dayshift’. Another expertly crafted slice of deepness that will set pulses racing. A touch of class. 

Spanish producer EdOne follows, teaming up with Stas Drive out of Kiev to create a bona fide gem in the form of ‘Poison’. Ironically, it tastes much more like sweet medicine to us. A real tonic for the troops in fact. Drink up! 

A big welcome back to another long time friend of the label next as Acumen provides us with further proof of his undeniable talent with ’Noir Profound’. Effortlessly captivating and affecting, it’s the sound of a master craftsman at work. C’est magnifique! 

And finally, we link up with the label’s Russian connection as Blaktone bring us ‘Saw Mantra’ with the underlying spirit of ‘French Kiss’ coursing through it’s veins albeit with a firmly applied contemporary twist. The St. Petersburg duo straddling past, present and future like a boss. 

Another trip down the rabbit hole complete then. How was it for you?

Acumen ‘Tulip’ EP Out Now

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!

Out Now – 5th Birthday EP Part Two

Selador’s 5th Birthday celebrations continue apace with the second of our trilogy of commemorative EPs featuring exclusive collaborations between some of the label’s family of artists.

Part 2 kicks off with the boss men Dave Seaman & Steve Parry who come together for the first time in the studio and as you’d expect, the result is pure Selador. ‘Repeat Offender’ carries all the hallmarks of the what you’ve come to expect from the label. Carefully crafted, contemporary club music with unwavering intent and a twinkle in it’s eye.

Next come two pairings straight from the frontline of Berlin’s vibrant electronic community. First, Martin Eyerer & Namito join forces for ‘Durant’, a no-frills beast of a tune that operates with intense efficiency. Lean and mean, a fine specimen.

We follow that with a pairing that between them, already have 6 Selador releases under their belt and it’s time to make it seven as Florian Kruse & Justin Massei step up with ‘Norssken’. A pulsating prime time workout crafted to cause optimum damage on the dance floor. Don’t say we didn’t warn you!

To round things off, two more artists who’ve been no strangers to the label throughout our first 5 years, our Manchester and French connections respectively, Simon JOBE and Antoine ‘Acumen’ Garcin. They combine for ‘Incontrolable’, a 9 minute futuristic odyssey as insubordinate as it’s title suggests. Dance music from outer space.

And that’s Part 2 folks. Hold tight. Back soon with Part 3.

Team Selador – It’s a family affair.

Acumen ‘The Modernist’ EP: Out Now

Frenchman Antoine Garcin (aka Acumen) will already be a familiar name to Selador fans following his superb ‘Instinct Primaire/ Femme Fatale’ EP last year as well as his remix for Lonya on ‘The World That Disappears’ and an appearance on our 5th Showcase Compilation with ‘Ici Ou Allieurs’. Be warned however, he’s only just getting started!

An artist who falls effortlessly into the ‘prolific’ category, his recent procession of releases for the likes of Last Night On Earth, Einmusika and Non Stop are soon to be followed by an entire album on his own Time Has Changed imprint. In the meantime though, we managed to grab ourselves another piece of the pie and accordingly present ‘The Modernist’ EP as our second outing of the year.

The 4 tracker consists of a brace of originals coming in two very different ‘Pre’ and ‘Post’ varieties whilst remix duties fall to the ever reliable UK producer Simon JOBE and French new boys, Yeuz both of whom we predict are destined for rather large things this year.

Pick yourself a winner.

OUT NOW: LONYA ‘THE WORLD THAT DISAPPEARS’

A weapon of choice for Selador head honchos Dave Seaman & Steve Parry for several months now, the time has finally come for Lonya’s return to the label with the massive ‘The World That Disappears’.

The Israeli producer drops flanked by remixes from Norway’s finest, Finnebassen, plus our favourite Frenchman, Acumen and long time friend of the label, Han Haak who all prove themselves up to the task. Three sterling reworks that inspire and excite in equal measures, all destined to light up your dance floors over the coming weeks.

Yet another blinding package. It’s what we do.
