Out Now: Animal Trainer ‘Amaron’ EP

Born out of the legendary Hive Club in Zurich, Animal Trainer are a production team in full bloom. Over the last few years, the dynamic duo of Adrian Wölhaff & Samuel Gmür have amassed an array of releases on an impressive list of labels including the likes of Stil Vor Talent, Poker Flat, Monaberry and Yoshitoshi. In short, it’s a mighty fine resumé. Whichever way you slice it.

And now they return to Selador with a two tracker of quality and distinction. Lead track ‘Amaron’ lays down it’s club credentials from the off, bobbing and weaving through a precise arrangement that will win hearts and move feet in equal measures.

The Danish duo Baime and Berlin label chief Einmusik also weigh in with two equally measured approaches that pull no punches and kick proverbial plus the added bonus of ‘Atamaran’ adds the icing on the cake, the final layer to beautifully balanced package.

Out Now: Dee Montero ‘Radian’ EP

Since Dee Montero last appeared on Selador back in 2016 with the wonderful Fugazi EP, his trajectory has continued to soar with releases for the likes of Diynamic, Knee Deep In Sound and Anjunadeep not to mention DJing everywhere from Burning Man to the Brooklyn Mirage and Womb Tokyo to Hi Ibiza… although we just did! ;-/

It’s been no surprise to us that his talents have been so in demand. His innate sense of melody and structure paired with a long founded understanding of the needs of a dance floor are something we’ve been big fans of here at Selador HQ for longer than any of us care to remember, so it’s with great pleasure we welcome him back to the fold. 

‘Radian’ has been a secret weapon of both Messrs Parry & Seaman for several months now so it’s with considerable excitement tinged with a hint of begrudged reluctance that we are finally able share it with the World at large. It’s a tried and tested dance floor destroyer that never fails, from us to you. You’re welcome 🙂

Danish supremo Christian Nielsen also weighs in with his own interpretation which is no less dependable and equally as potent and we even found space to revisit Dee’s first ever contribution to Selador ‘Fade Into Noir’ featuring the sumptuous vocal of Aya from our very first Showcase compilation in 2014. Update duties fell to thriving UK Producer Made By Pete who met the challenge head on and delivered in spades. 

Team Selador – Mathematically correct.

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.

Out Now: Luke Brancaccio & Steve Parry ‘Control Machine’

Despite having known each other for the best part of two decades, Luke Brancaccio & Steve Parry surprisingly, didn’t actually formally meet until 2018. It will come as no surprise however to learn it was their shared passion for dance music that eventually brought them together. 

It could have all worked out differently when back in 2005, Luke didn’t make it to a gig Steve booked him for at his infamous Alderaan nights in Liverpool but that’s a story for another day and their friendship continued to flourish online, blossoming further when Selador signed one of Luke’s tracks for the label’s 5th Birthday project.

It was around this time that the idea of a collaboration was mooted which is where our story gathers pace. The result, as you’d expect, is something special as the duo draw upon their combined wealth of DJ, clubbing and production experience to create a peak time juggernaut by the name of ‘Control Machine’. 

This straight-for-the-jugular beast is also accompanied by an equally large remix courtesy of Brazilian legend, Renato Cohen who builds upon the original’s relentless bassline adding yet more unbridled power and energy. 

Together, it’s a double barrelled weapon alert!

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!
