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.
It’s time to unveil Selador’s latest signing as Spanish producer EdOne joins the cause following a string of releases on such high profile imprints as Suara, Stil Vor Talent & Mood. An acquisition whose cultured artistry will slot straight in to the way we play.
His two original productions lead the line here with ‘Balsam’ taking centre stage. A wonderfully engaging slice of modernistic dance floor electronica. Upfront, lean & mean.
Its partner in crime meanwhile, the compelling ‘Caramel’ follows, bristling with restless energy and brooding, subtle intricacies. More restrained maybe but no less effective. Strength in depth.
And our now customary brace of remixes come courtesy of two long time friends of the label whose credentials speak for themselves. Step forward, Greek kingpin Stelios Vassiloudis and our man down under, Australia’s finest, Jamie Stevens. Two heroes who have never taken their eye off the ball and are still top of their game.
Four wins out of four then. Tekkers!
Anyone who has been following the Selador story so far should already be familiar with Marc DePulse. Having previously featured as a remixer on Joal’s ‘Uncover To Discover’ in 2015 and more recently as part of our Showcase Volume 3 compilation, the German Producer now earns his stripes with a fully fledged EP of considerable weight and stature.
Comprising of two originals and two remixes, the package all falls under the Famekiller umbrella and it’s the title track that sets the bar high. A powerful serving of towering techno that’s been leaving a trail of dance floor destruction in it’s wake during early roadtests.
Another of our favourite Germans, Kevin Over then takes centre stage, dropping the BPM and getting deep down and dirty with a low slung acid tinged workout. Pure and utter unadulterated filth. We’ll have some that!
Next, Mr DePulse picks up the baton once more with another teutonic adventure entitled ‘Nothing Toulouse’. Subtler than it’s famekilling elder brother but no less robust, this one works it’s charm with stealth-like precision. The ultimate seduction.
And to round things off, we invited our new favourite Spanish producer David Granha to give us his take on ’Slapstick’, Marc’s recent contribution to the aforementioned Showcase Volume 3 release. Marc’s own reaction upon hearing this mix says it all. “I couldn’t have done it better myself” he said. We concur.
And with that, another chapter is set in stone. Stay tuned though, the plot is set to thicken.
