Showcase Volume 2 Compilation (Part2) now out on Selador Recordings

selador showcase 2-2Hello again.

No sooner have you had to catch your breath from the delights of our Selador Showcase – Part 1 promo than we’re back with the accompanying Part 2. Yes, hot on the heels of last weeks objects of lust and desire, we bring you another bespoke capsule collection of electronic battle weapons especially designed for your delight and delectation.

This time around, leading from the front is label ambassador and all round top bloke, Robert Babicz who brings yet another slice of Babicz style goodness in the form of ‘Auralphase’. Layer upon layer of elegant melodies sitting atop a strong rhythmic backbone and just the right dose of acid, it’s business as usual from the big man, classy and emotive.

Andrea Arcangeli & Pakkio Sans bring us ‘We Oppose It’ next, a wonderful melodic gem that’s been heavily road tested by both Messrs Seaman & Parry over the last few months. The Italian duo are hot off the back of recent releases for the likes of Parquet and Smiley Fingers and this will only serve cement their burgeoning reputation. Get on board.

UK producer, Dom Kane follows with ‘Crisis Aborted’. Featuring cleverly programmed interwoven arp patterns astride a seductive groove, this has been an office favourite for sometime now and so we’re very happy to finally share it. A secret weapon if ever there was one.

New boy to the Selaldor family, Roland M Dill then brings some ‘Winter Splendor’ to proceedings in his own inimitable way. As long time fans of the German producer, we are so pleased to have him on board and this beautifully crafted piece of work certainly doesn’t disappoint. The devil’s in the detail.

And wrapping things up, Dimitri Nakov returns to Selador after his recent Dee Montero remix, this time collaborating with B-Vision on the exquisite ‘Vapour’. And whilst they may be the rearguard on this delicious two part compilation, rest assured they’re not just here to make up the numbers. Quite they contrary. They close things out in a complete blaze of glory.

So, five more deliciously tasty morsels to get your teeth into then. Don’t be shy. Tuck in! ;-)

My new single ‘Sparkle Motion’ Out now on Tulipa Recordings

 

My new single for ‘Sparkle Motion’ is now available on Tulipa Recordings, my third release for the label after ‘The Holy Ghost’ and ‘Everything Comes In Threes’ in 2013 and 2014 respectively.

This track was born out of the same studio sessions as my recent release for Sudbeat, ‘Right Side Of Wrong’ and is kind of like the tougher, more techno influenced big brother piece.

Completing the package are two superb remixes from esteemed German house duo Piemont and Ukrainian Techno legend, Spartaque who both deliver in their own inimitable and distinctive styles. Grab it while it’s hot ;-)

Showcase Volume 2 Compilation (Part1) Out Now On Selador Recordings

selador showcase 2- part1Clear the decks. The second instalment of Selador’s Showcase series has landed.

Gathering together some familiar label favourites alongside an array of exciting new talent, the album features ten exclusive tracks from some of the artists that will be spearheading the label over the coming months. And being the kind, considerate souls we are, we’ve split the album up into two easily digestible parts. The first of which is out on March 23rd.

Part 1 gets off to a flying start with the inimitable Piemont. The German duo have been stalwarts of the label from the very beginning and it’s great to have them back with a brand new original track. Entitled ‘You’, this little gem dishes up wave upon wave of classy house textures. It’s stylish and assured, effortlessly smooth and unmistakably Piemont. Just the way we like it.

Next in line it’s our great pleasure to welcome Third Son to our roster. The young Welsh wizard has been steadily make a name for himself with releases on Noir Music, Material & Suara amongst others and we’re very happy to be adding Selador to that impressive list. ‘How I Feel’ is a hypnotic slice of tech house. Dark and chilling in all the right places, it powers along with all the swagger of a young gun slinger. Fire!

Portuguese born, Berlin based producer Joal follows up his successful Climbers remix for the label next with the first of a handful of original productions we have lined up from him. ‘Tomorrow’ is a captivating piece of modern deep house which commandeers more than it’s fair share of otherworldly magic. Spell binding stuff.

Another new name we welcome into the fold, Jaap Ligthart weighs in next with ‘Tour De Jours’. A wonderfully restrained sophisticated serving of deep house that steadily creeps up on your when you least expect it, this serves as a prequel to his first fully fledged release for the label which is currently in the scheduling queue patiently waiting its turn. A tasty taster if you will ;-)

And finally for Part 1, Berlin based Justin Massei returns after his debut on the first Showcase compilation with ‘Tell Them’, a solid gold specimen of proper house music. Full of infectious energy, driven by relentless synth stabs and employing a cheeky wee vocal sample, we dare you not to dance to this.

So then, 5 more beauties with which to impress your friends and generally elevate your social status.

Part 2 follows next week. Stand by.

Selador Recordings – 50 shades better than all the rest. Come and get some ;-)

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!
