Robert Babicz ‘One Day We’ll All Be Happy’ Remixes EP Out Now On Selador Recordings

babicz remix Ep Packshot 1500Calling all Seladorians. Hear the battle cry once again. We’re back with more weapons for your armoury.
Yes, Selador’s second instalment of electronic goodness for 2015 comes courtesy of the man who’s made more contributions to the label than any other artist, the one, the only, Robert Babicz.
Following his widely acclaimed One Day We’ll All Be Happy EP on Selador last year, we now proudly present Part 2: The Remixes, as four esteemed producers get to grips with a track each and serve up their own interpretations of Sir Robert’s originals.
First out of the blocks is thriving Spanish producer Affkt with his take on the lead track. Driven by some bad ass beats and drenched in soaring melodies, this one bursts at the seams with uplifting energy. A home run.
Following Affkt is Bristolian producer Dubspeeka with a classy techno workout of ‘ToneFabrik’ which features an almighty, Empire State size kick drum and digs deeper than a multi national oil conglomerate. No wonder he’s becoming so highly sought after.
Next up it’s the legendary King Unique takes up the mantle working his magic on the original bad boy track, ‘Turn Around My Friend’. As you’d expect, the result is a sound clash of heavyweight proportions. Head to head, toe to toe, pound for pound..  a clear knock out!
And finally, it’s left to French outfit Melokolektiv to tackle ‘Massive’ and they do so with aplomb. Almost unrecognisable from Robert’s original, they turn the track on it’s head with a much deeper approach but one which still retains enough energy to maintain it’s main room status. Tasty.
So, 4 by 4 then, something to suit all weathers and terrains. Don’t you dare say we don’t spoil you ;-)
Over & out.
The Selador crew

My new single ‘Right Side Of Wrong’ Out Now On Sudbeat

My new single ‘Right Side Of Wrong’ is now out on Hernan Cattaneo’s Sudbeat label. It’s my second release for the imprint following 2012′s collaboration with Guy Mantzur, ‘K9′ and is already receiving a warm reception from the likes of Sasha, Affkt, D Nox, Raxon and Guy J. The package also comes with a beautiful, emotive remix from the aforementioned Mr Mantzur alongside his fellow Cat & Dog Club resident DJ, Lonya and big thanks also to Pedrag Iv for the accompanying video. Although, I would like to take this opportunity to say, I accept no responsibility for any psychological disturbance it may cause. It’s a little dark and unsettling. You’ve been warned! Sweet dreams ;-)

Climbers ‘Down Under’ EP Out Now On Selador Recordings

 

climbers_2So a big hello to 2015 then. We’ve been expecting you. And here at Selador Towers we couldn’t be more excited by the twelve months ahead. Our phasers are set to stun and destroy and no dancefloor is safe in our quest for world domination. Mwuhahahaha! Of course we’re the first to admit we are nothing without our army of producers and remixers out there on the frontline and spearheading the attack this year we’re honoured to be joined by Mexican production duo, Climbers. The Down Under EP not only features two lethal original tracks but they’re also aided and abetted by the immeasurable talents of Rob Hes, HearThuG & Darlyn Vlys and Paul Nolan on remix duties who between them cover all bases from Techno to chill out with a bit of deep & dark trippy tech thrown in for good measure. It’s a cast to die for people. Lock and load… Fire!

Reloads 2 EP Out Now on Selador Recordings

Reloads 2 PackshotAs 2014 draws to a close and we look back on what has been a fantastic year for us here at Selador, we’d like to take this opportunity to say a big THANK YOU to everyone who has played their part in such a successful 12 months that went far and beyond what we could ever have hoped to achieve.

To wrap things up we’d like to finish the year on our second Reloads EP, the occasional series where we invite some of our roster of producers to get to grips with a few highlights from our back catalogue and boy did they step up to the plate.

Leading by example is Kucna Muzika with their remix of Piemont’s ‘So What’ which was part of our fifth release way back during the summer of 2013. It’s a chunky motha of a mix that has already had plenty of supporters amongst the lucky few to have it upfront. Main room Tech House at it’s finest.

Next up is Snilloc with his interpretation of our very first release, Samu.l’s ‘Restless Dreams’. Keeping things deep but embellishing on the original’s hypnotic appeal, the up and coming Hungarian producer gives this modern classic a new lease of life, not a moment too soon.

Time for another visit to the ‘Naughty Forest’ next as Beaumont Stanford & Matt Davis take on our very own Dave Seaman’s collaboration with Mr Funkagenda. And this little beauty has balls! Centered around a monster bass, the vocal and melodies then weave some black magic between them that would leave Dynamo dumfounded!

And finally, we’ve got not one, but two new versions of Dee Montero’s ‘Fade Into Noir’, one of the standout tracks from our first Showcase compilation earlier this year. Dimitri Nakov is the one on remix duty here, delivering both a groove driven punchy dub and a more subtle, stripped back variation showcasing a little more of Aya’s dreamy vocal. Take your pick, the choice is yours.

Until next time then, we’d like to wish your all a very Merry Xmas and Happy New Year. Thank you for your continued support and we promise that next year is set to be even bigger and better.

Selador Seasonal Greetings to one and all… with bells on.
