Dave Seaman ‘Slippery Beast’ EP – Out Now on Sincopat

sincopat2018_1000_03After remixing Affkt’s ‘Between Us’ to wide acclaim last year, UK originator Dave Seaman now returns to Sincopat for his first full release for the label. Led by two original productions, Dave continues his rich vein of form showing a tougher edge to his range or if you prefer we use the slang term…  a pair of bangers! 
Not only that, both ‘Heavy Petting’ & ’Shimmer’ also come flanked by a brace of remixes from two talented artists currently riding high on the crest of a huge creative wave. Label favourite Just Her and Italian break out stars Moonwalk both work their magic with transformative effect to add a variety of alternative flavours to the menu. A platter to suit all tastes then. Bon appetite.

Selador 5th Birthday EP Part 3 – Out now

5elador fifth three

 

And so it came to pass, the third and final instalment in our 5th Birthday EP series yields 4 further collaborations of the highest pedigree and calibre.

Step forward Gorge & Joeski, Guy Mantzur & Lonya, Wally Lopez & Joal and Marc DePulse & Several Definitions who all bring their own inimitable flair and flavour to the party to provide us with yet another awesome foursome. 

Gorge & Joe set the pace on ‘Jogo’ (Eat your heart out Brangelina). With it’s feet firmly planted in Deep Tech terrain it rolls into town, shooting from the hip with the kind of swagger you’d expect from these two experienced gunslingers. 4/4 at 10 paces. 

Next it’s Messrs Mantzur & Lonya, two leading lights of the thriving Tel Aviv electronic music scene pairing up for ‘Dynasty’. Characterised by the elegant piano work of Adam Gorlizki set against an emotional progressive backdrop, its subtlety charms and shines above all else. 

On the other side of the coin, we find Marc DePulse & Jeremy Vieira (aka Several Definitions) calling the shots on ‘Ego Rex’, an altogether different affair with it’s brazen, explosive energy burning brightly in your face. All about the attitude. 

And to wrap things up, calling time on our trio of celebratory EPs (Did we mention it was our birthday?) we present ‘Peninsula’ courtesy of the Spanish/Portuguese combo of Wally Lopez & Joal.  A wonderfully understated piece of work thats seductive powers intensify with every listen. A tune for all seasons. 

So all that remains is to say a big thank you to everyone who helped us commemorate this landmark anniversary. We hereby promise to stop milking it for all it’s worth. Normal service will now be resumed. 

Selador Recordings – Back to business!

Selador’s 5th Birthday EP Part 2 – Out Now

5elador fifth twoSelador’s 5th Birthday celebrations continue apace with the second of our trilogy of commemorative EPs featuring exclusive collaborations between some of the label’s family of artists.

Part 2 kicks off with the boss men Dave Seaman & Steve Parry who come together for the first time in the studio and as you’d expect, the result is pure Selador. ‘Repeat Offender’ carries all the hallmarks of the what you’ve come to expect from the label. Carefully crafted, contemporary club music with unwavering intent and a twinkle in it’s eye.

Next come two pairings straight from the frontline of Berlin’s vibrant electronic community. First, Martin Eyerer & Namito join forces for ‘Durant’, a no-frills beast of a tune that operates with intense efficiency. Lean and mean, a fine specimen.

We follow that with a pairing that between them, already have 6 Selador releases under their belt and it’s time to make it seven as Florian Kruse & Justin Massei step up with ‘Norssken’. A pulsating prime time workout crafted to cause optimum damage on the dance floor. Don’t say we didn’t warn you!

To round things off, two more artists who’ve been no strangers to the label throughout our first 5 years, our Manchester and French connections respectively, Simon JOBE and Antoine ‘Acumen’ Garcin. They combine for ‘Incontrolable’, a 9 minute futuristic odyssey as insubordinate as it’s title suggests. Dance music from outer space.

And that’s Part 2 folks. Hold tight. Back soon with Part 3.

Team Selador – It’s a family affair.

Faze Magazine Interview

Talking all things Selador to coincide with the label’s 5th Birthday celebrations, here’s my recent interview for the Germany’s Faze Magazine transcribed into English…

Selador23_preview

Wow, time went by so fast… You and Steve Parry have managed the label Selador for five years now. We tried to figure out what Selador means – but did not find it. Please help us.
We adapted the name from a line in the cult film ‘Donnie Darko’ where it’s said that the syllables that make up the words ‘Cellar Door’ are the most beautiful sounding combination in the English language. It kind of struck a chord with us. Musically, we’re always on the search for beauty and perfection :)
How long have you known each other and how did you get the idea to start a label?
We’ve known each other for almost 30 years! Steve served me vinyl for many years throughout the 90s and early 2000s when he worked at 3 Beat Records so we’d always had a bond over our shared love of music and clubbing. After I had laid my previous label, Audio Therapy, to rest in 2011, I took some time off from that side of the business but it wasn’t long before I realised how much I missed it. So when Steve mentioned to me during a phone conversation we had late in 2012, that it was one of his ambitions to run a record label, it wasn’t a stretch for me to propose the idea of starting an imprint together. 6 months later, Selador was born.
Let’s review the first five years of Selador. Which acts are under contract and what is Selador’s style?
We’re really happy with how far we’ve come and what we’ve achieved in our first 5 years. It’s such a competitive business running an independent dance music label these days so it’s hard to establish yourself but we believe we’re slowly getting there. We’ve worked really hard and there’s still a lot more work to do. We’ve always tried to release a variety of styles that reflected our wide tastes. We definitely didn’t want to get stuck in one niche genre. Hence, over our short history we’ve released everything from the tougher Techno influenced work of Reset Robot, Wehbba and Victor Ruiz through to the deeper end of the spectrum such as Ruede Hagelstein, Tim Engelhardt & Charles Webster. And everything in-between! But if we’re asking who’s actually appeared on the label the most? Aside from Steve & I, that accolade would probably fall to either Quivver or Robert Babicz. Too close to call.
It’s better look forward than back but with you, it is worthwhile to have a look at the past. Keyword “Global Underground”. How did you experience this time? It was the stepping stone for you to the top?
Yes, I look back on the big Global Underground years with very fond memories. It’s not so often the Underground actually becomes mainstream for such a extended period of time but that is exactly what happened around the end of the 90s and start of the new millennium. There was a huge appetite for what we were doing all around the World. So many new places were really just opening up to the dance music/DJ revolution so they were very exciting times. I think GU really managed to capture that with their releases. It was an honour to be part of it. 
Back to the future: What are the future plans with Selador?
Our immediate focus is our 5th Birthday. It’s a big project for us and we’re very proud of the results. We’ve lined up have 3 EPs featuring 12 exclusive collaboration tracks between 24 of our artists. The final line up is..
Quivver & Cristoph
Stelios Vassiloudis & Robert Babicz
Raw District & Just Her
Luke Brancaccio & Tim Healey
Martin Eyerer & Namito
Florian Kruse & Justin Massei
Acumen & JOBE
Gorge & Joeski
Guy Mantzur & Lonya
Marc DePulse & Several Definitions
Wally Lopez & Joal
And finally Steve & myself
As you can see, it’s a huge project! 
On April 26, you celebrate the fifth anniversary of Selador at the Watergate club in Berlin. What about the line-up, is there already a timetable and what awaits the party people?
Steve & I will both be playing alongside our Berlin resident Justin Massei and this time our guest will be Quivver. It’s going to be be our 4th label showcase at Watergate. It’s such a great club and we’ve always had such great fun there, we really couldn’t think of anywhere better to kickstart our 5th Birthday celebrations. 
Your current top 5 tracks are:
Well, whilst we’re talking all things Selador, let’s make it a current Selador Top 5.
1. Florian Kruse & Lazarusman ’Breathe’ (Frankey Remix)
3. Dave Seaman & Steve Parry ‘Repeat Offender’ 
3. Cristoph & Quivver ‘In Name Only’
4. Gorge & Joeski ‘Jogo’ 
5. Luke Brancaccio & Tim Healey feat. Kiki Cave ‘I Hear Voices’
