The 3D DJs return with a spring in their step and the bit between their teeth all ready to complete their trilogy of EPs for Selador and arguably, they may have saved the best ‘til last.
With Darren, Dave & Danny now firmly ensconced in the studio together working on a collaborative album project, this EP signals the final piece in the trio’s original concept of releases where each contributes an individual track.
Danny opens proceedings this time with ‘Shortwave’, an ever present in his sets over the last year that finally gets to see the light of day. Listeners with a keen ear may recognise this as the track the 3Ders opened their Mixmag Lab session with in LA last year. A delicious slice of uplifting Howells house.
Darren is next up with ‘Sleeping Bag’, a paean to the legendary NYC imprint that combines a sublime house groove and a seductive arpeggio with spellbinding results. Proper classy business straight outta Billericay.
And last but by no means least, Dave weighs in ‘Press 1 For Human’, a veritable banger loaded with off kilter synth sirens and a bass line so muscular that we demand a dope test. Innocent until proven guilty though and be warned, we have very expensive lawyers!
All for one and one for all, three is the magic number.
So the festive season is upon us and we come bearing gifts, one final offering for 2019 in the shape of the ‘R.O.D’ EP courtesy of a collaborative effort between label stalwart Acumen and Ukrainian duo Monastetiq.
‘Revolution Of Dignity’ comes in two formats, the muscular titan that is the ‘Original Mix’ which has already found favour with the likes of Artbat, Fideles & Tale Of Us plus an equally potent remix from darlings of the Progressive scene, Hernan Cattaneo & Lonya.
And with that we’d like to wish you all a very happy holidays and a huge thank you for your continued support. We’ll be back next year with yet more of the good stuff. As per.
See you on the other side.
Being the co-owner of Selador certainly has its advantages as Dave Seaman knows only too well. The ability to release your own productions on your own label is of course, one of the perks of the job because quite frankly, who’s gonna stop you?! So no sooner has ‘Rodales’ (his contribution to the recent 3D EP) done it’s business, than the Boss Man pulls rank once again to deliver another lovingly crafted EP.
To be fair, it’s a release more than deserved of its place on the schedule. An EP of consummate artistry, the delightfully titled ‘Rapscallion’s Revenge’ comes in four variations; 2 courtesy of Dave himself with further interpretations coming from German upstarts Township Rebellion and Irish Techno master Ian O’Donovan. It’s an explosion of melody and rhythm and acid house spirit all intricately woven into a rich techno tapestry. Or something like that 😉
Selador Recordings – It’s an art, not a science. x
Hot on the heels of his recent ‘Control Freak’ release the label, bossman Dave Seaman is back flexing his muscles on Selador once more, armed with another bountiful package that signals intent for 2018.
This time Dave shows off a more subtle side as he constructs ‘Virgo Ryzin’ around an incessant lead line that bristles with brooding understated energy. It’s beguiling and vibrant, considered and assured, the mark of a man who’s just celebrated his 30th anniversary in the dance music industry.
Remix-wise, the Audiojack juggernaut rolls into town fresh from their recent chart topping adventures. The Ibiza based UK duo’s star has been in the ascendency for some time and it’s not hard to see why. Another outright winner.
Next we are delighted to welcome Joeski back to the label after his last remix for Dave formed part of the ‘Justified Replacement Of Lulu’ release back in 2014. This time he employs an Afro flavour for a heritage inspired mix that takes us back to our roots. It began in Africa!
Sasha Braemer has been on the Selador hit list for what seems like an eternity, so we’re very happy to say we finally got our man. The ever reliable German adds his considerable pedigree to proceedings with a stylish interpretation that has it’s fair share of surprises.
And completing the line up, it’s another Selador outing for Techno young guns, Loco & Jam. Following their recent success on Suara & Tronic, the Northern Irish duo deliver another slammer for all your all big room, bass heavy requirements.
All bases covered. Another home run.
What a way to start the year.
Selador Recordings – Let the games begin.
A weapon of choice for Selador head honchos Dave Seaman & Steve Parry for several months now, the time has finally come for Lonya’s return to the label with the massive ‘The World That Disappears’.
The Israeli producer drops flanked by remixes from Norway’s finest, Finnebassen, plus our favourite Frenchman, Acumen and long time friend of the label, Han Haak who all prove themselves up to the task. Three sterling reworks that inspire and excite in equal measures, all destined to light up your dance floors over the coming weeks.
Yet another blinding package. It’s what we do.
Team Selador – Tune pushers.
