So we turn the page and dive headfirst into another chapter of the ongoing sprawling epic that is the unfolding Selador Story.
For this subplot we return to one of our central characters as Justin Massei embarks on his 8th outing for the label. The Rite EP consists of two original productions that perfectly encapsulate everything we love about Justin’s style – that low slung, sleezy, after hours sound honed from his countless closing sets on Watergate’s legendary Water Floor.
For this particular adventure, Justin has also enlisted the talents of fellow Berlin & Watergate resident Marco Resmann on remix duties who turns in two killer variations on The Hymn, each with its own inimitable distinctive flavour.
All told, it’s an awesome foursome of an EP. Good luck picking a favorite. We know we can’t!
From Berlin with love.
Team Selador – A cut above
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.
Selador returns to the legendary Berlin club for a 3rd engagement this time taking up residence on one of the newly launched Thursday nights. Once again label bosses Dave Seaman & Steve Parry are behind the decks alongside our man in Berlin, Justin Massei plus we are also delighted to add esteemed Israeli producer Guy Mantzur to the bill for what is sure to be another night to remember. Bring your dancing shoes, you’re gonna need them!
