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: Justin Massei ‘The Rite’ EP

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.

EdOne ‘Never Alone EP’ Out Now

Spanish Producer EdOne is rapidly becoming something of a star player in the ongoing Selador story. 

Just this year alone he’s made key contributions to our latest Showcase compilation and the recent Christian Nielsen EP and now with his own 3 track EP, let’s just say we’re rather enamoured his work right now. We’ve certainly got more riding on him than most.

The Never Alone EP showcases his range perfectly, from the rousing ingenuity of the lead track, through the pure wonky brilliance of ‘LFO Hammer’ to the mystical allure of ’Simplicity’, the strength, depth and consistency of his productions are clear to see and even more importantly..  hear! 

Team Selador – backing winners since forever!
