Rob Hes & Steve Slight ‘Focusing/Mankind’ out now on Selador

rob hes_2Next up from Selador Recordings, we are excited to present a double header from the two of techno’s new leading lights, Rob Hes & Steve Slight. With recent releases under their belts on the likes of Oliver Huntemann’s Ideal imprint, Hernan Cattaneo’s Sudbeat & Stephan Bodzin’s Herzblut too, the prolific duo have delivered what we consider to be their best work yet in the form of ‘Focusing’ & ‘Mankind’.

Both big dance floor weapons in their own right, ‘Focusing’ also comes with massive remixes from both Gabriel Ananda and Selador’s own Steve Parry and judging by the huge swell of support from everyone from Jamie Jones to Tensnake, Pig & Dan to Guy J and DJ Chus to M.A.N.D.Y, this could end up being one of our biggest releases to date. Grab it while it’s hot people :-)

SEFF ‘Freestyle Fanatic EP’ Out now on Selador

SEFF_v2For the seventh release on our burgeoning Selador Recordings label we are pleased to welcome SEFF into the fold with a wonderful 3 track EP of big booming underground House music. SEFF aka Joe Saunders has been making quite a name for himself over the last year with releases on Steve Lawler’s Viva Music and his own Mindmaze Music imprint and his first full release for Selador has had no shortage of takers either. The likes Hot Since 82, Groove Armada, Cevin Fischer, Betoko, AFFKT and Kolombo have all pledged their support with all 3 tracks finding their way into the sets of the elite. The lead track ‘Freestyle Fantastic’ sets the bar high with it’s growling dirty synths and “On and on and on” vocal refrain, whilst ‘Listen’ goes deeper and darker and ‘Lost In The Underground’ heads into slightly wonkier territory. Quite simply, if raw underground house sounds are your bag then we’re sure you’ll find something to whet your whistle here. Without doubt, the boy Seff has a big, bright future.

World Radio Premiere of Selador Sessions mix

Dave Seaman’s critically acclaimed Selador Sessions Volume 1 compilation is to get its world radio premiere on Tuesday 17th December exclusively on Friskyradio.com The mix hasn’t been on sale anywhere and was only available to backers of Dave’s kickstarter campaign earlier in the year but now finally this is a chance to hear it if you missed out.

“I’ve had a lot people asking where they can buy it but it’s not been on sale. That was the point.”said Dave “to keep it limited edition and exclusive. But although they still can’t buy the album, we thought a chance for people to at least hear what they missed might spur them on to get involved next time I get around to doing another crowd funded album. Hint hint” ;-)

So, Tuesday 17th December straight after Dave’s regular Radio Therapy show at 9pm. It’s a one off deal. Don’t miss it.
