Steve Parry ‘Luna’ Remixes Out Now

Luna v4Selador main man Steve Parry is back on the label as we revisit his highly regarded ‘Luna’ track from the beginning of this year. Originally appearing on Volume 4 of our Selador Showcase series to widespread acclaim, we felt it was about time it owned it’s own catalogue number and have recruited a few influential friends to make sure it all goes off with a bang.

The Original Mix plays host to a gathering that includes label fave Dubspeeka dropping by with a gift of a remix, positively brimming with his deep, dark, hallmark Techno flavourings. Next we roll out the red carpet for Spanish Electronic Music royalty in the form of Wally Lopez who unleashes a unstoppable Progressive juggernaut. And finally, rising Croatian star Andrea Ljekaj brings some fresh blood to the party with a beautiful piece of otherworldly goodness.

Yet another mission complete then. It’s not what you do, it’s the way that you do it.

Team Selador – To the moon and back.

Selador Showcase – The Fifth Element Compilation Out Now

selador showcase 5b-1The illustrious fifth edition of Selador’s Showcase series is an altogether heavyweight affair featuring a whole host of electronic music’s big hitters. For many of this all-star cast it also constitutes a baptism of sorts as we welcome them to the label ahead of fully blown releases further down the line. So without further ado, let us introduce you to the runners and riders..

The first of our contenders pairs one of the label’s mainstays, our boy Quivver, with another legend of the scene, Funk D Void for a rather special collaboration. Together they deliver ’Dual State’, an assured piece of bass heavy electronic goodness that only 5 decades worth of combined experience can yield. Look out y’all, master craftsmen at work.

Next up we welcome Florian Kruse to the fold. The German’s stock has been on the rise recently with releases on Suara, Green & Noir and now he graces Selador with his own special brand of Melodic Techno. ‘Homebound’ is a sure-fire winner if ever we’ve heard one. Top marks.

Our old friend Stelios Vassiloudis is also riding high on a hot streak right now off the back of releases on Bedrock & Poker Flat and here he continues that rich vein of form with the deep, darkness of ‘Burn’. Modernistic and menacing, this is music from the edge. Badass.

Another good friend of the label, our favourite Spaniard, Affkt is next in line with the stirring ‘Cliff’. Underpinned by an effervescent string motif and taut arrangement, it growls and fizzes it’s way through an intensive 6 minute workout. Bold and striking.

From Spain we head across the border to France where Acumen picks up the baton for the first time on Selador with ‘Ici Ou Allieurs’. A rousing affair bursting with energy and attitude, this is just a taste of what’s to come from the Frenchman on our label. Stellar work.

Jamie Stevens is next to join the party with a slice of electronic sophistication like only he knows how. Discerning and restrained, this is an elegant creation that deserves your focused attention. The devil is in the detail. Outstanding.

And finally, to close off in style we welcome Flowers & Sea Creatures. The Canadian duo have been a firm favourite here at Selador for several years with Dave Seaman even including them on his Renaissance Masters compilation as far back as 2011. Here they serve up the irresistible ‘Blades Nokturne’, a work of delicate beauty delivered in their own inimitable style. Exquisite.

Without doubt, it’s a compilation to be proud of. Take a bow, one and all. Bravo.

Team Selador- Bringing The Noise.

Quivver ‘The Selador Remixes’ EP Out Now on Selador

quivver - selador remixes smaller

 

 

 

The irrepressible John ‘Quivver’ Graham is next to step back under the glare of the Selador spotlight courtesy an EP of remixes exclusively assembled of his previous work for the label. Calling upon three esteemed producers, all masters of their craft, we bring you three very different slants on John’s originals. First up, Northern Ireland’s Loco & Jam drop their big Techno flavourings on ‘Everything Remains The Same’. Label favourites, Germany’s Piemont are unmistakably… well, Piemont with their own distinctive brand of quirky melodic Tech House on ‘Brand New Medecine’. Fellow Germans Smash TV then round off the package with a darker, heads-down vision of ‘Wait For You’. Something for everyone then. Brand New Medicine indeed!
