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.

Florian Kruse feat. Lazarusman ‘The Proof Of Life’ Out Now

German Producer Florian Kruse makes his full debut on Selador following previous appearances remixing for Several Definitions and as a contributor to our last Showcase compilation.

Here he enlists the South African beat poet, Lazarusman on vocal duties for ‘The Proof Of Life’, an insistent Tech House winner whose DNA traces all the way back to Lil Louis’ electronic benchmark, ‘French Kiss’.

Remixes come courtesy of Italian Paul Ursin who adopts a deeper darker approach while fellow countryman, Paride Saraceni adeptly unlocks the original’s spiritual side.

If it’s proof you need, then look no further.

Team Selador – No doubt

Out Now: Habischman ‘The Way’ EP

Following his superb remix on Quivver’s ‘Wait For You’ for Selador last summer, Iman Habibi aka Habischman makes his fully fledged artist debut on Dave Seaman & Steve Parry’s imprint with a four track Extended Player fit for a king.

The Iranian born Berlin resident has been making some tidal sized waves recently with releases on the likes of Moda Black, Noir Music, Steyoyoke & Booka Shade’s Blaufield and in our humble, if slightly biased opinion, this release is positively tsunami-esque.

From the irresistible depth of the title track to the pulsating drama of ‘All I Dream’
and the shimmering zeitgeist house of ‘Skin’ to the seductive bounce of ‘Dub Rumors’,
we are ticking boxes, left, right & centre here. All bases covered. Nailed on home run.

Out Now: Cristoph ‘Foregone Conclusion EP’ Part 2

christoph_2
Hello again and a huge Seladorian sized Happy New Year to one and all. After what was a momentous 2015 for us here at Selador Towers, we’re now primed and ready to make this year even bigger and better. Here to prove it, starting as we mean to go on, is our first release of 2016.
As regular receivers of our music you should already be familiar with the Forgone Conclusion EP by label fave, Cristoph which we released last summer and you may also remember that somewhat unusually for us, the release came with no remixes. Well, we thought it was about time we put that right. And so, in all it’s remixed glory, here is the Forgone Conclusion EP – Part Two.
First up a producer that has been making plenty of noise recently with his releases on the likes of Suara & Noir, the one and only, Kiko. The Frenchman tackles the lead track in his own inimitable signature style, overflowing with zest and prime time intensity. The sound of a man at the top of his game.
Next our very own Dave Seaman returns a favour after Cristoph remixed Dave’s ’Naughty Forest’ release a little over a year ago and our head honcho does us proud on ‘Digging In’. Main room melodics with just a touch of wonk, it’s a belter and no mistake.
Then, it’s the turn of Kevin Over on ‘Moments’ who throws off the shackles of his trademark basement house sound and dons his alternative cap to embark on a journey of dark acidic retro flavoured electronica. Heads down for some proper left of centre gear.
And finally, fashionably late to the party, we welcome Lonya. The resident DJ of the the legendary Cat & Dog club in Tel Aviv gives his deep atmospheric Techno take on ‘Time For Change’. A brooding slab of darkness for those late night floors.
So there you have it, Cristoph and friends, prepared in 4 very different flavours to suit every palate. Tasty business, whichever way you slice it.
Selador Recordings – yum-yum!
