Selador to unveil immersive clubbing concept at ADE

We are proud to announce Selador Recordings will launch their Seladoria series of events at the legendary Club NL during this year’s Amsterdam Dance Event on Sunday 20th October with Quivver, EdOne, Luke Brancaccio and Christian Nielsen joining label owners Dave Seaman & Steve Parry behind the decks.

“It’s something we’ve been working on for a while”, says label head honcho, Dave.  “We wanted to bring a little more colour and unpredictability to our events. Something a little more immersive than your standard label showcase”.

He continues.. “Steve & I have both being going to clubs for longer than probably either of us care to remember and we thought we should really try to bring some of our experiences to our own parties. 

The whole idea of going down the rabbit hole into another world for a few hours is very much the ethos of what clubbing should be about for us. A little trip into Wonderland soundtracked by some of the hottest contemporary club music around. A chance to lose yourself in a little cocoon of positivity before coming out the other side with that ‘Did that really just happen?!’ feeling. Well, that’s our aim anyway. And we’re sure as hell going to have fun doing it!”

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?

Out Now: Dave Seaman ‘Thonk!’

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.

Out Now: Selador 100 – Anniversary EP

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.
