Out Now: D- Nox & Beckers ‘Skylab/Surrender’

Selador are delighted to announce the long overdue return of Christian D-Nox & Frankey Beckers to the label with a double header of seismic proportions. 

After fighting off stiff competition for the signature of this massive release we are understandably rather pleased with ourselves. Reasons for which become abundantly clear once you hit play. 

Lead track ’Skylab’ has already been a mainstay in the sets of many an A-lister with everyone from Tale Of Us to Hernan Cattaneo falling under it’s spell. A straight-up peak time bomb. 

Whilst the genre-busting ’Surrender’ has become an instant favourite at Selador HQ, a gem of rare beauty that seductively bobs and weaves through an ingenious arrangement. Outstanding work. 

Trust us, this one is not to be overlooked under any circumstance.

Team Selador – Smug as fuck!

Selador to unveil immersive clubbing concept at ADE

We are proud to announce Selador Recordings will launch their Seladoria series of events at the legendary Club NL during this year’s Amsterdam Dance Event on Sunday 20th October with Quivver, EdOne, Luke Brancaccio and Christian Nielsen joining label owners Dave Seaman & Steve Parry behind the decks.

“It’s something we’ve been working on for a while”, says label head honcho, Dave.  “We wanted to bring a little more colour and unpredictability to our events. Something a little more immersive than your standard label showcase”.

He continues.. “Steve & I have both being going to clubs for longer than probably either of us care to remember and we thought we should really try to bring some of our experiences to our own parties. 

The whole idea of going down the rabbit hole into another world for a few hours is very much the ethos of what clubbing should be about for us. A little trip into Wonderland soundtracked by some of the hottest contemporary club music around. A chance to lose yourself in a little cocoon of positivity before coming out the other side with that ‘Did that really just happen?!’ feeling. Well, that’s our aim anyway. And we’re sure as hell going to have fun doing it!”

Out Now: Selador Showcase – The Ninth Wave Compilation

The latest instalment of our Showcase compilation series lands with a trumpeted fanfare heralding the Ninth Wave of exclusive new cuts from a selected handful of the Selador roster. 

Neatly coinciding with the label’s annual adventure to the Amsterdam Dance Event where this year we will kick start our freshly formed Seladoria parties at Club NL on October 20th, it’s almost as if we planned it this way! 😉

Leading from the front, label bosses Dave Seaman & Steve Parry both contribute with individual productions. The former unveiling his huge ‘Donkey Engine’ production that has been a staple in his sets throughout the summer. Afro Techno anyone? 

Steve meanwhile is finally ready to share his tribute to a club that holds a special place in our hearts. Selador have enjoyed a series of fondly remembered parties at Watergate over the last few years and ‘Waterfloor’ is a paean to those treasured memories in Berlin. Fantastisch!

One of Dave & Steve’s long time friends and all round top geezer, the man like Danny Howells then returns to the label following the huge success of his ‘Earthlings X’ release of 2018 with the sublime ‘Dayshift’. Another expertly crafted slice of deepness that will set pulses racing. A touch of class. 

Spanish producer EdOne follows, teaming up with Stas Drive out of Kiev to create a bona fide gem in the form of ‘Poison’. Ironically, it tastes much more like sweet medicine to us. A real tonic for the troops in fact. Drink up! 

A big welcome back to another long time friend of the label next as Acumen provides us with further proof of his undeniable talent with ’Noir Profound’. Effortlessly captivating and affecting, it’s the sound of a master craftsman at work. C’est magnifique! 

And finally, we link up with the label’s Russian connection as Blaktone bring us ‘Saw Mantra’ with the underlying spirit of ‘French Kiss’ coursing through it’s veins albeit with a firmly applied contemporary twist. The St. Petersburg duo straddling past, present and future like a boss. 

Another trip down the rabbit hole complete then. How was it for you?

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.
