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.
Selador Recordings – English House Mafia.
Robert Babicz’s Red EP is already the stuff of legend in the ever developing Selador story as it will forever be known as the label’s inaugural vinyl release.
Released on the February 29th and quickly amassing an overwhelming amount of love from what reads like a who’s who of the current electronic music scene, such luminaries as Noir, Dubfire, La Fleur, Guy J, Re.You, Richy Ahmed, Hernan Cattaneo, Davide Squillace, Sasha Carassi, Mihalis Safras, D-Nox, Wehbba, Nick Warren, Thomas Schumacher, Pirupa, DJ Anna, Edu Imbernon, Danny Daze all pledged their full support. Immediately, it was patently obvious that we had something special on hands.
However, our first foray into the physical world is only part of the story here, the narrative is set to continue as we cross this release over into the digital domain with two brand new interpretations. First from Steyoyoke hotshot, the amazing Dahu and also from someone who’s been on our remix wishlist for a long time, the very talented Jozif.
We then also include two of the acclaimed original vinyl versions from 8 Bit boss, Gorge and Robert himself (the Villanova Remix and Original Mix of ‘Green’ will remain vinyl only) and the impressive line up is complete.
Light to the touch paper and stand clear, this one’s ready to explode.
As February 29th only comes around every four years, we thought it befitting of this latest fleeting appearance to celebrate with yet another fine release from our burgeoning Selador stable. Be rude not to, right?
And what better way than with the label debut of Mr Tom Peters. German born, Berlin based, Tom has already released music through such esteemed channels as German heavyweight labels, Kompakt & Get Physical and so naturally, we’re very pleased he’s decided to add Selador to his already impressive résumé.
Featuring two very different but equally strong original productions, the tribal tech of ‘Two Of Us’ with it’s wonky synth surges and sensuous vocal inflections to the more forceful peak time techno flavourings of ‘Restless’. It really is a double header not to be missed.
On remixing assignments, rising German star, Tim Engelhardt sprinkles his own magic dust over ‘Two Of Us’ whilst Mexican duo Climbers step up to the plate with a stonking interpretation of ‘Restless’. Basically, it’s a win win situation. Just the way we like it.
So.. Happy Leap Day everyone. Don’t say we didn’t spoil you 😉
Following his superb remix on Quivver’s ‘Wait For You’ for Selador last summer, Iman Habibi aka Habischman makes his fully fledged artist debut on Dave Seaman & Steve Parry’s imprint with a four track Extended Player fit for a king.
The Iranian born Berlin resident has been making some tidal sized waves recently with releases on the likes of Moda Black, Noir Music, Steyoyoke & Booka Shade’s Blaufield and in our humble, if slightly biased opinion, this release is positively tsunami-esque.
From the irresistible depth of the title track to the pulsating drama of ‘All I Dream’
and the shimmering zeitgeist house of ‘Skin’ to the seductive bounce of ‘Dub Rumors’,
we are ticking boxes, left, right & centre here. All bases covered. Nailed on home run.
