Alice Rose & Malbetrieb ‘Creatures Of The Night’ Out Now on Selador

Alice Rose 4kIt’s just over a year since Alice Rose first featured on Selador on what has now become one of the label’s bone fide classics. Her collaboration with Jaap Ligthart on ‘I Know Change’ was something of a milestone in our history as it transcended allegiances and genres with everyone from Sven Vath to Solomun and Tenaglia to Tiesto united in their love and support.

Now she’s back, with a new studio partner, but with comparably devastating results. Teaming up with fellow Berlin resident, Malbetrieb, the duo have delivered another lesson in first class deepness. A piece of unerring electronic beauty.

Label fave Quivver then shines brightly with a couple of very special remixes. Equally radiant in style and quality, the Vocal Mix oozes class from every pore, whilst the Dub ploughs a tougher furrow aimed firmly at the dance floor. Sophistication personified.

Not to be outdone, Selador’s own Steve Parry also brings his own A game to proceedings. Drenched in subtle acid goodness, this was a highlight of his set at Selador’s 3rd Birthday party at the Ministry Of Sound and also of Dave Seaman’s recent guest mix for John Digweed’s Transitions Show. Top notch.

There’s really no escaping this one. It’s hotter than Margot Robbie in the midday sun. And then some.

Team Selador – Purveyors of the nocturnal noise.

Steve Parry ‘Apricity’ Out Now on Selador Recordings

apricity - steve parry-3b 3As Selador Recordings reaches it’s 3rd birthday, co-founder Steve Parry makes his artist debut for the label with a track that’s set to elevate his status to the next level.

Following up the recent success of his massive ‘Flippant’ track on Bedrock should not have been an easy task but Steve has effortlessly created another accomplished peak time anthem that has already sent tongues-a-wagging amongst the lucky few who’ve managed to get their hands on a copy.

Whereas ‘Flippant’ was most definitely an ode to his love of authentic acid house, ‘Apricity’ shows off his melodic side with it’s arp-tastic lead synth doing most of the damage atop a pulsating bass and roof raising structure.

On the remix front, Brazilian Techno maestro, Victor Ruiz, weighs in with something altogether more Techno, outdoing himself in the drama department as he stretches out the lead motif over a wonderfully unpredictable arrangement. This was one of the highlights from Sasha & John Digweed’s recent reunion which says a lot more than we ever could.

Next up, Portuguese Tech House grandee, Joal returns to the label with a masterclass in remodelling as he takes us to another place entirely. Bringing new bass, strings and a touch of darkness to the party, the transformation is as imaginative as it is remarkable. Hats off.

And finally, completing this stellar line up, house music’s latest dynamic duo, Ki Creighton & Makanan of Under No Illusion fame lay down their trademark heritage house beats as foundation for the infectious arp line to flourish. A mix you can put your mortgage on.

This release has been long time in the making, crafted from over two decades of DJing experience, with quality assured and fireworks guaranteed. Watch it fly.

Team Selador – Reach for the lazers!

Robert Babicz ‘Red’ EP (Digital Edition) Out Now

coverRobert Babicz’s Red EP is already the stuff of legend in the ever developing Selador story as it will forever be known as the label’s inaugural vinyl release.

Released on the February 29th and quickly amassing an overwhelming amount of love from what reads like a who’s who of the current electronic music scene, such luminaries as Noir, Dubfire, La Fleur, Guy J, Re.You, Richy Ahmed, Hernan Cattaneo, Davide Squillace, Sasha Carassi, Mihalis Safras, D-Nox, Wehbba, Nick Warren, Thomas Schumacher, Pirupa, DJ Anna, Edu Imbernon, Danny Daze all pledged their full support. Immediately, it was patently obvious that we had something special on hands.

However, our first foray into the physical world is only part of the story here, the narrative is set to continue as we cross this release over into the digital domain with two brand new interpretations. First from Steyoyoke hotshot, the amazing Dahu and also from someone who’s been on our remix wishlist for a long time, the very talented Jozif.

We then also include two of the acclaimed original vinyl versions from 8 Bit boss, Gorge and Robert himself (the Villanova Remix and Original Mix of ‘Green’ will remain vinyl only) and the impressive line up is complete.

Light to the touch paper and stand clear, this one’s ready to explode.

Selador Showcase EP – ‘The Third Generation’ Out Now

selador showcase 4From the series that has previously served up such gems as Robert Babicz’s ‘Auralphase’ and Dave Seaman’s ‘Justified Replacement Of Lulu’, the Selador Showcase is back with another batch of beauties lovingly collated for your listening pleasure.

For the third in the series, we’ve opted for an EP rather than LP as we know first hand how increasingly difficult it is to digest full length albums in this crazy age of quantity over quality. So without further ado, here they are, five exclusive Techno weapons, from established artists, label favourites and new names alike, every one a thriller in their own right.

We open proceedings with a brand new name to production, introducing Liverpool based Irishman, Never More with ‘Forward Momentum’. Already a stalwart of the Irish scene as part of the legendary Republik crew out of Waterford, this debutant shines with all the spirit and endeavour that his club’s reputation has garnered over the last couple of years.

One of our long time favourite producers, Marc DePulse follows with a Teutonic fire bolt right out of the top drawer. Delivering precision with an effortless cool as only the German’s know how, this comes ahead of Marc’s first full blown EP for the label just to whet your whistle, so to speak.

Lonya further cements the EPs credentials with ‘Makore 7’, it’s growling synths pulsing and fizzing their way through a perfectly formed, understated arrangement. 2016 is already panning out to be a momentous one for Lonya. Don’t miss the boat.

Several Definitions then makes his Selador debut with a dark destroyer built around rattling hats, menacing synths and haunting vocal clips. Already massive for label bosses Seaman & Parry, this is just a taste of what’s soon to come from Several Definitions on Selador. Watch this space.

French duo, Datametrik round things off in fine style, picking up where they left off from their Xenon EP for the label last year with another mind melting excursion into contemporary Techno. Totally trippy yet equally equanimous – no mean feat. Respect is due.

Upgrade your perspective people. Fight your mind. The Third Generation are here.

How I Met The Bass Podcast #14

Unknown“When Marc Depulse invited me to take part in his HOW I MET THE BASS series, where DJs and producers relate some of their early influences in dance music, I decided to bypass the halcyon days of acid house, which is ground I’ve covered many times before, and go even further back. This mix spans the mid 1980s and features some the anthems of my youth. From the electro of my breakdancing days to the proto-house of my early clubbing adventures and my obsession with the New York nightlife of the time, this is How I Met The Bass. Hope you like it”  Dave
