Out Now: 5th Birthday EP Part One

It’s hard to believe that it’s been 5 years already since we smashed a metaphorical bottle on the side of the good ship Selador and set sail upon the choppy waters of the independent record label business, but that’s where we’re at.

To celebrate this milestone we wanted to do something a little bit special and so it was decided (on a beer mat, over a beer, like so many of our best laid plans) to assemble a team of artists who’d helped us get thus far (plus a few added cameos for good measure) and ask them to collaborate. The result is a statement of just how far we’ve come. 24 esteemed artists creating 12 tracks across 3 EPs.

This first EP sees 4 mouthwatering pairings. From the Progressive heavy hitters Quivver & Cristoph teaming up for the slamming wall of sound that is ‘In Name Only’ to the deep Tech wizardry of ‘Friendship’ by Robert Babicz & Stelios Vassiloudis through the inspired, effortless chic of Just Her & Raw District on ‘Three Hearts’ finishing with the ‘knock-it-out-of-the-park’ Techno monster of Luke Brancaccio & Tim Healey’s ‘Voices’ featuring Kiki Cave, it’s an awesome foursome. And this is just the tip of the proverbial iceberg.

So please raise your glasses and join us in a toast to 5 Years Of Selador. Or even better, come join us in person at Watergate, Berlin on April 26th for the launch party. We’ll even throw in some cake (though not in the Steve Aoki sense obviously).

Happy Birthday to us

Team Selador

Out Now: Namito ‘Anakeys’ EP

After two cameo appearances on our Showcase Series (Volumes 4 & 6), Namito now returns for a starring role of his own making with the ’Anakeys’ EP.

For the uninitiated, the Iranian born, Berlin based producer is quite the team player, working behind the scenes on many a wide-ranging project from Marc Romboy’s lauded live orchestral shows to engineering for the legendary Grandmaster Flash!

It’s two solo creations though that form the basis of this EP with the title track leading from the front. A prime example of a tune that works its way into the subconscious unannounced and then stubbornly refuses to budge. A humdinger if ever there was one!

The ’Anakeys’ remixes then come from two fertile hotspots of electronic music, Berlin and Brighton via Kling Klong boss Martin Eyerer and long time friend of the label, Just Her who both bring their A-games to the party with reworks of a truly high calibre.

And finally, not to be overlooked, we’re also very proud to include ‘Little Cheat Treats’ just for good measure. A bonus track that on any other occasion could easily have commanded top billing.

For many, this may even prove to be a show stealer. You decide.

Team Selador – Above and beyond the call of duty
