Magic Black Plastic Vol. 2 – Various Artists
Selador Recordings SELV 005 – Release date: Feb 25th 2022
Steve Parry – ‘What You Make It’ – Renato Cohen remix
Dave Seaman – ‘Racket Abuse’ – Charles Webster remix
Anthony Pappa & Jamie Stevens – ‘Here We Go’
Squire – ‘True Religion’ – Hannes Bieger remix
A quartet of gems, Selador’s latest 12” vinyl outing, once again in our tasty new house bag, brings together four of the label’s most popular digital releases of recent months.
We open with another majestic piece of work from Brazil’s techno don Renato Cohen. This huge remix keeps the peak time spirit of Steve Parry’s evergreen What You Make It very much intact – but then flexes it up to 11 with a muscular new interpretation. Big!
House music royalty, Charles Webster then delivers a psychedelic electro gem of a re-rub of Dave Seaman favourite Racket Abuse. Tripped out genius that makes maximum use of the original version’s mind-bending vocal hook and reached Number One on Beatport’s Electro Chart.
Next, Progressive House Don Anthony Pappa teams up with Electronic production guru Jamie Stevens for Here We Go, a dark yet uplifting, tribal workout that was one of the label’s best sellers of 2021.
And finally, Barcelona-Berlin soundclash alert! Two of our favourite electronic music epicentres are represented with actual former F1 driver Jamie Alguersuari, aka Squire at the wheel, and sonic wizard Hannes Bieger on remix duty. ‘True Religion’ is a thing of rare timeless beauty. A true gem.
