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.

Dave Seaman – ‘Control Freak’ EP Out Now

dave seaman_control freakSelador co-founder, Dave Seaman takes centre stage once again for his fifth release on the label following previous landmarks Naughty Forest, Justified Replacement Of Lulu, Nightfalls & Voodoo Disarray.

‘Control Freak’ is an intoxicating slice of modern day electronic house. Uncompromising and forthright, it goes straight for the jugular, led by an off-kilter top line and a solid arp workout, punctuated by irresistible percussion fills and that menacing vocal. This is Dave Seaman circa 2017.

Remixes come from Spanish legend, Uner who skilfully navigates a deeper, housier approach and also one of 2017’s breakout Techno stars, Italian producer, Frankyeffe who offers a very classy deep techno variation. End of night business.

It was 30 years ago today!

277381_10151892657790287_447064266_o

                       Photo: Me with legendary journalist James Hamilton, circa 1987

I have to confess, it was a bit of a shock when I realised it’s exactly 30 years ago today that I started my career in the music industry. I had abandoned a promising career in advertising to take up the position of head tea boy at DMC (Disco Mix Club) in the ‘big smoke’ of London and have never really looked back since. In-at-the-deep-end was exactly where I wanted to be. Within 6 months I found myself in the Editor’s seat at DMC’s then fledgling, subscription-only DJ publication, Mixmag and the rest as they say, is history.

Of course, things were very different back then but I couldn’t have timed it any better. 1987 was the year that DJs suddenly became seen in a very different light as technology opened up boundless new opportunities and the likes of M/A/R/R/S, S.Express, Coldcut and Bomb The Bass gatecrashed the pop charts on a insurgent scale. Change was in the air but little did we know the extent of it.

I think like most UK Youth Culture moments before it (Mods & Rockers, Punk, Northern Soul, New Romanticism, etc) we all saw Acid House as a scene that had a shelf life of a few years but here we all are, 30 years later, with the Electronic Music Scene arguably healthier than it’s ever been. It’s now a multi-million pound global industry supporting all manner of ancillary services with many, many more DJs, artists, labels and outlets than ever before. Of course, that overwhelming level of choice brings it’s own downsides but I think there’s sometimes a tendency to look back at those early days through rose tinted spectacles. People easily forget what it was like to have such limited access to the music. Outside of London, I was restricted to a couple of hours per week of dance music on the radio and a single column of information courtesy of James Hamilton’s weekly round-up in Record Mirror Magazine. So be thankful for what you’ve got and careful what you wish for. As the saying goes, people that say things are not as good as they used to be are generally not as good as they used to be.

I feel blessed to have lived through the end-of-analogue/birth-of-digital era and am never more excited than by the hear-and-now and what the future holds. Upwards on onwards. The adventure continues..
