Don’t call it a comeback! James Harcourt has returned to forward thinking streams and dance floors with a vengeance over the last year. Aiming to make “contemporary electronic music for both dance floor and mind that engenders a strong emotional response in a modern landscape of throwaway product and short attention spans”, we believe he has delivered big time on this worthy ambition.
Here at Selador HQ, we have been the grateful recipients of much of this output, with ‘Litoloko’ a standout track on our Twelfth Night Showcase, followed by the storming three track ’Fireglow’ EP earlier this year. Each and every one a winner that perfectly encapsulate the current sound of the label, it’s been a marriage made in audio heaven.
DJ support has been through the roof too, with the likes of Sasha, Josh Wink, Catz’n’Dogz, Super Flu, Quivver, Kevin De Vries and Just Her all on board. Pop onto James’s socials to see the dance floor pandemonium his tunes can cause with videos of both Bebetta and our very own Dave Seaman dropping Harcourt tuneage to ecstatic crowds.
For the next chapter in his Selador story, we are proud to announce the arrival of another three-headed monster which will see James conclude a memorable year in fine style. ‘Elfin’, ‘Deviate’ and ‘Epsilon’ are all peak time bangers in their own right, each with the necessary components to take you on a journey straight to the heart of the dance floor whilst simultaneously achieving James’s other stated ambition of sounding just as good in your headphones. Powerful electronic missives for mind, body and soul.
‘Elfin’ – driving, cinematic 80s influenced synth porn. Mayhem alert!
‘Deviate’- soaring synths-a-plenty brimming with undiluted positivity and feel-good factor.
‘Epsilon’ – a masterclass in morphing the moody and menacing with the euphoric. Sweet, dark and deadly.
Team Selador – Drop it like it’s hot!
