Selador Showcase – The Fourth Dimension – Part Two – Out Now

selador showcase smallerHot on the heels of it’s elder sibling Part One, we’re very happy to now bring you the second volume of this thrilling two parter. Seven more dance floor delights from the Showcase treasure chest.

Label boss Steve Parry gets proceedings underway with ‘Luna’. Our man doesn’t release much music as he’s notoriously fussy, so we’re delighted he finally deemed this one worthy by his own lofty standards. ‘Luna’ is a hommage to his own Liverpool based parties and fuses housier elements with plenty of drive, roof raising stabs and his hallmark sprinkling of acid for good measure too. It’s a biggie!

The legendary Jaydee then steps up with ‘Basemento’. A bit of a coup for Selador as the Dutchman’s releases are probably rarer than Steve’s! Here we find a throbbing, bass driven, peak time slab of energy that will have you on the first train to Gurnsville quicker than you can say double drop.

Another dance music legend is next as Wally Lopez drops ‘Focused’. This may raise a few eyebrows as it’s a bit of a left turn from the Spaniard’s recent productions. Here he shows his darker side. Melodic and punchy but with a serious kick.. You’ve been warned.

Label favourite Joal returns after his recent ‘Magician’ release with ‘Eskimo’. Trippy and bubbly but with a composed posture, it’s the arp line that emerges into the dominant force here. Quirky and cool as always from this fine producer, it’s a head melter.

Another Selador debut follows as SQL lands a floaty yet ballsey gem in the form of ‘Phoenix’. The Dutch gent has been on our radar since day one so we were delighted when this winner landed in our inbox. Infectious, tinkling melodies are order of the day, but offset by a moody undertone. Crackerjack.

Ibizan based Alice Clark perked our ears right up when we heard ‘Chaser (Six.AM Remix)’. Channelling a retro underground Detroit house feel yet still sounding ultra fresh, this has been road tested by us many times and always delivers the goods without fail.

Rounding things off is Romanian producer, Punu. We were tipped off on this track by our mutual friend, André Hommen and it turns out he knew us well as we love it! Skippy beats reminiscent of Black Coffee collide with layer upon layer of rollercoaster melodies. Top notch.

It’s 2017 Seladorian style. The shape of things to come.

Selador Showcase – The Fourth Dimension Compilation – Part One – Out Now

selador showcase 4 smallerAfter a 2016 to remember, Selador kickstart the new year with the fourth instalment of our acclaimed Showcase series. Putting down our marker for the year, the label has gathered together a formidable compilation that scales enviable heights. In fact, we’d go as far as to say it’s our best Showcase yet! Featuring a mix of established names side by side with several newcomers too, the release will be split into two easily digestible parts so no-one gets overlooked amongst this embarrassment of riches.

Part 1 commences with el patròn, Dave Seaman spearheading the attack courtesy of ‘Voodoo Disarray’. Employing a vocal snippet that fans of his classic Renaissance Awakenings compilation will instantly recognise, this has been a secret weapon of the Selador boys for several months. What kind of voodoo do you do?

Dee Montero & Dimitri Yakov then return to the label with a collaboration of some magnitude. The duo both reside in Ibiza for the majority of the year and the sunshine soaked vibes of the White Isle most definitely shine through on ‘Alba’. Keeping it classy.

Next up is another collaboration that hits the spot as Namito & Amine K make their Seladorian debut with ‘Falling Serpent’. A twisting and turning journey from two masters of their craft who we’re honoured to have on the label. Dance music from another dimension.

Native Behavior may be a new name to some of you but we believe the Californian is destined for big things. ‘Silence’ is his inaugural release and is a sure sign of things to come. A remarkably accomplished debut.

Anii is another artist on the rise following recent releases on Global Underground and Third Son’s Polymath. Here she delivers what we believe is her finest work to date with the distinctive and sublime ’Soma’. Sounds of the supernatural.

And finally, wrapping things up for the first part of this fearsome compilation, Marymoon joins the Selador ranks with ‘Fantom Us’. The St. Petersburg descendent and resident of the White Ocean Camp at Burning Man festival drops a monster direct from the desert. Battle-ready.

And that my friends, concludes Part 1. Look out for Part 2 following hot on it’s heels. It’s equally as devastating.

Team Selador – Happy New Year x
