Frenchman Antoine Garcin (aka Acumen) will already be a familiar name to Selador fans following his superb ‘Instinct Primaire/ Femme Fatale’ EP last year as well as his remix for Lonya on ‘The World That Disappears’ and an appearance on our 5th Showcase Compilation with ‘Ici Ou Allieurs’. Be warned however, he’s only just getting started!
An artist who falls effortlessly into the ‘prolific’ category, his recent procession of releases for the likes of Last Night On Earth, Einmusika and Non Stop are soon to be followed by an entire album on his own Time Has Changed imprint. In the meantime though, we managed to grab ourselves another piece of the pie and accordingly present ‘The Modernist’ EP as our second outing of the year.
The 4 tracker consists of a brace of originals coming in two very different ‘Pre’ and ‘Post’ varieties whilst remix duties fall to the ever reliable UK producer Simon JOBE and French new boys, Yeuz both of whom we predict are destined for rather large things this year.
Pick yourself a winner.
Selador Recordings – Master modernists.
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!
German Producer Florian Kruse makes his full debut on Selador following previous appearances remixing for Several Definitions and as a contributor to our last Showcase compilation.
Here he enlists the South African beat poet, Lazarusman on vocal duties for ‘The Proof Of Life’, an insistent Tech House winner whose DNA traces all the way back to Lil Louis’ electronic benchmark, ‘French Kiss’.
Remixes come courtesy of Italian Paul Ursin who adopts a deeper darker approach while fellow countryman, Paride Saraceni adeptly unlocks the original’s spiritual side.
If it’s proof you need, then look no further.
