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.

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’

My New Single ‘Virgo Ryzin’ Out Now On Selador

Virgo RYZinHot on the heels of his recent ‘Control Freak’ release the label, bossman Dave Seaman is back flexing his muscles on Selador once more, armed with another bountiful package that shows a statement intent for 2018 for both artist and label.

This time Dave shows off a more subtle side as he constructs ‘Virgo Ryzin’ around an incessant lead line that bristles with brooding understated energy. It’s beguiling and vibrant, considered and assured, the mark of a man who’s just celebrated his 30th anniversary in the dance music industry.

Remix-wise, the Audiojack juggernaut rolls into town fresh from their recent chart topping adventures. The Ibiza based UK duo’s star has been in the ascendency for some time and it’s not hard to see why. Another outright winner.

Next we are delighted to welcome Joeski back to the label after his last remix for Dave formed part of the ‘Justified Replacement Of Lulu’ release back in 2014. This time he employs an Afro flavour for a heritage inspired mix that takes us back to our roots. It began in Africa!

Sasha Braemer has been on the Selador hit list for what seems like an eternity, so we’re very happy to say we finally got our man. The ever reliable German adds his considerable pedigree to proceedings with a stylish interpretation that has it’s fair share of surprises.

And completing the line up, it’s another Selador outing for Techno young guns, Loco & Jam. Following their recent success on Suara & Tronic, the Northern Irish duo deliver another slammer for all your all big room, bass heavy requirements.

Love and support for this one has come from all corners of the electronic music world including Re.You, DAVI, Township Rebellion, Kolsch, Frankey & Sandrino, DJ Harvey, Edu Imbernon, Nick Warren, Dubspeeka, BOg, Guy J, Hernan Cattaneo and many more.

All bases covered then. Another home run.

What a way to start the year.

Selador Recordings – Let the games begin.
