Jobe ‘Law Of Entropy’ EP out now on selador

jobe-2Roll up, roll up. Gather round people. It’s time for another first class delivery from your new favourite label 😉 Next up on Selador Recordings, we’re pleased to welcome Simon JOBE into our ever growing brood who comes armed with 3 lethal weapons that might just give meaning to the second amendment! You may already be familiar with JOBE through his previous releases for the likes of Akbal Music or Connaissueur Recordings but if not, don’t worry, just acquaint yourself with this EP by way of an introduction. Law Of Entropy kicks things off, setting the mood with it’s brooding low end, rising crescendos and captivating synth patterns. Executed with class. Fellow Northerner, Cristoph is first up on the re-rubs with yet another lesson in remix mastery as he carefully retains much of the original’s charm whilst turning the energy levels a couple of notches. A main room assignment. Next comes ‘Dissonant’, full of drama, swirling atmospherics and a breakdown that’s sure to cause it’s fair share mayhem. Take cover! Then it’s the turn of Hungarian housemaster, Snilloc who reinvents ‘Dissonant’ as a super stylish, specimen of chunky modern house music. Dirty bomb! And finally, the curtain call comes courtesy of ‘Critical Mass’, the most intense of the 3 originals, with it’s relentless arpeggios and snarling bass. Proficient, polished and on point. Basically, you’re looking down the barrel of 3 high grade original productions accompanied by a couple of on-target remixes. Another fine collection of ammunition for your arsenal.

Jody Barr ‘Popes & Wizards’ EP out now on Selador

jodie barr_2-3Whilst we really enjoy preparing remix packages for your delight & delectation here at Selador, even go as far as to say we get our kicks out of it, occasionally a collection of tracks comes along from a producer where we believe the spotlight should be focused solely on them.

We did it with Cristoph recently and Melokolektiv & Seff before him but now it’s a young Welshman by the name of Jody Barr that becomes part of that narrative.

We consider it our privilege to give Jody the platform from which to blossom and he debuts with 3 accomplished pieces that you’d assume to be the work of a more established producer.

From the raw Tech alpha male swagger of ‘Popes & Wizards’ through the rolling, stabby, classic dance floor destroyer that is ‘Heavy Fate’ to the dirty, tour de force Techno of ‘Pill Box Theatre’, Jody is a talent beyond his years and in our humble opinion, a future star. We think you’ll agree.

Datametrik ‘Xenon’ EP out now on selador recordings

datametrik-2Following a string of releases from more familiar names such as Quivver, Cristoph & Third Son, Selador turns it’s attention to providing a launch pad for a new name in electronic production, Datametrik.

The French duo are no novices through, Willy Réal & David Prap already have plenty of experience under their belts. But this project is the start of a new focus formulated to help them realise their full potential, which on this evidence, can only be a matter of time.

The mood is deep, dark and deadly throughout with three equally devastating after hours weapons in ‘Xenon’, ‘Azote’ & ‘Neon’ accompanied by a couple of A-list remixes from B Pitch Control’s Kiki and Bristol’s latest poster boy, Dubspeeka.

It’s another trip to the darkside courtesy of the unstoppable Seladorian Express. Jump on and find your place now before it’s too late. We wouldn’t want you to get left behind. All aboard. Choo, choo.

Support from Stephan Bodzin, Nicole Moudaber, Adam Beyer, Kollektiv Turmstrasse, H.O.S.H, Chaim, Nicolas Masseyeff & many more..

Quivver ‘Wait For You’ EP Out Now on Selador Recordings

quivver-1John ‘Quivver’ Graham is something of a legend in electronic music circles having consistently spent the best part of 20 years dropping release after release of top quality productions and DJing every far flung corner of the globe to boot.

His body of work speaks for itself having released on the likes of Bedrock, Strictly Rhythm, Yoshitoshi and his own Boz Boz imprint whilst also working on an array of blockbuster film scores and high profile game soundtracks, Batman & Call Of Duty amongst them..

His debut for us here at Selador is, as expected, a formidable offering that brings two outstanding new original productions to the table. ‘Wait For You’ is a precision engineered gem of electronic goodness with it’s captivating percussion, seductive bassline and tortured vocal hook. Lay back and enjoy the ride.

‘Everything Remains The Same’ follows with all the self assured swagger of a kid brother aiming on stealing the limelight for himself. Another masterclass in production technique coupled with an impeccable choice of sounds, it’s once again pure, unadulterated Quivver. Surrender is the only option.

Adding fuel to the fire, first up on remix duties we have a huge melodic Techno depiction by the original dynamic duo from Deutschland, Christian D-Nox & Frank Beckers. And boy, they didn’t just hit it big, they knocked it clean out of the park! Three words. Peak. Time. Anthem.

The final portrayal sees esteemed Berlin resident, Habischman take up the cause with gusto to deliver another interpretation oozing class. It’s spellbinding stuff delivered with the kind of depth Jacques Cousteau would be proud of. Superb.

We just don’t know when to stop do we?!

Third Son ‘Darker Side Of The Moon’ EP out now on Selador

third son_ep packshotTo say Third Son has had a prolific 2015 would be bordering on understatement. The young Welshman has made one hell of an impact with an impressive string of releases for the likes of Noir, Suara, Go Deeva, Sincopat, Einmusika, Underground Audio, MadTech and 303 Lovers bringing him as close to ubiquity as any new kid on the block could hope for.

We at Selador however, believe that we might just have managed to bag his best work to date with an inspired EP built from the finest ingredients this side of an Heston Blumenthal menu.

Captaining the side is ‘Darker Side Of The Moon’ which has been a secret weapon in Mr Seaman’s sets for the last few months with it’s chugging bass and peak time, cascading melodies. If you ever needed to capture the very best of what Third Son does, hear this.

Playing the crucial supporting role comes ‘Colourblind’. Another sub-Moroder driven slice of chunkiness which ironically delves into slightly darker territories than it’s predecessor. Pretty sure that’s the main man on vocal duties there too. Yet another weapon in his firepower.

First up on remix duty, we welcome Petar Dundov into our ever growing Seladorian clan. The big Croatian is a safe pair of hands in the remix game and his trademarks are all over this interpretation of ‘How I Feel’, which was Third Son’s acclaimed contribution to our recent Selador Showcase compilation. A perfect match.

Justin Massei completes the line up to remix ‘Colourblind’, returning the favour after Third Son had remixed Justin’s ‘Nothing Can Hide’ on his recent Selador release. Aww, group hug 😉 This mutual back scratching however, has resulted in something special as Justin turns on the Berlin vibes. Proper late night action.

With so much talent on show, it’s harder than ever to pick a winner and remember, it’s not just the taking part that counts!

Cristoph ‘Foregone Conclusion’ EP out now on Selador Recordings

cristoph_ep packshotWhat a year it’s been so far for the one they call Cristoph. This Geordie lad is one of a group of young UK producers hailing from the North East Of England that are making waves worldwide with their next generation brand of British House Music.

Following in the footsteps of the likes of Hot Since 82, Patrick Topping and wAFF, Cristoph was singled out late last year as a ‘Future Star’ by no less an authority than Pete Tong and has since only managed to raise expectations further with a glut of hot productions and remixes this year for such mighty labels as Defected, Noir, Material & Viva.

And now it’s our turn to bask in his reflected glory, welcoming him back into the Selador fold following his highly impressive remix on Dave Seaman’s ‘Justified Replacement Of Lulu’ release with a killer 4 track EP which will only add weight to his growing stature.

First up, the title track moves in a slightly different direction than you’d normally be accustomed to from Cristoph. Tougher, fuller, more melodic styled techno, this is peak time, heads down material. Hold tight.

Next up to the plate is ‘Diggin In’ with it’s assured groove and slowly building dynamics leading to a classic crescendo and joyous pay off. One of the big tunes at Selador’s recent label night at Watergate in Berlin. Large.

Third in line to the throne is ‘Moments’, another subterranean adventure underpinned by a robust bass and incessant synth lines rising and falling throughout. Got more drama than a Colombian soap opera.

And finally, a fitting climax comes in the shape of ‘Time For Change’, a huge melodic gem that unfolds into the kind of breakdown that takes you to places where anthems are made. Heaven sent.

All in all, let’s make no bones about it, this really is the work of a producer at the top of his game and we’re very honoured to be a part of it. Get on board now and you can be too :-)

Joal ‘Uncover To Discover’ EP out now on Selador Recordings

joal 3Straight off the back of our last release by Berlin based Justin Massei and the label’s debut at the legendary Watergate club, Selador Recordings continues it’s Berlin love affair with an EP by another producer based in this influential city, Joal.

The Portuguese DJ is no stranger to the label with a his remix for Climbers and an original production on the last Showcase compilation already under his belt. But now the relationship is consummated with the wonderful EP you have in your hands.

The 4 track release is spearheaded by ‘Uncover to Discover’. A deep tech house outing that weaves subtle melodies and clipped vocal patterns through a cleverly layered arrangement. Classier than Audrey Hepburn in Dior to be sure 😉

This is followed by a Marc DePulse remix of the lead track who opts for a more direct approach whilst still retaining lots of the original’s understated parts. A proper remix in the original sense of the word. Adding strength and depth and a climatic breakdown. Expertly done.

Next up, the Supernova boys out of Italy deliver a remix of Joal’s track from the recent Selador Showcase album, ’Tomorrow’. All driving housey hi hats, bottom end toms and undulating synth stabs, this is as raw as a Japanese fish market and just as fresh. Boom!

And finally, wrapping things up, we have the bonus of ‘Exercise’ which heads purposefully into techno territory. Laced with acid, and a commanding robotron vocal, what are you doing reading this? Shouldn’t you be checking if your gym membership is up to date?

And so mon petit fleurs, yet another top flight release with that ever reliable Selador royal seal of approval. De nada.

Justin Massei ‘Nothing Can Hide’ EP out now on selador recordings

justin_massei packshotFollowing on from  Selador Recordings debut at the legendary Watergate Club in Berlin, we deliver an EP from one of the DJs who appeared on the bill that night, the burgeoning talent that is Justin Massei.

Justin has already appeared twice on the label with contributions on both of our Showcase Compilations but now here he is in all his fully fledged glory with an EP that truly puts his flag in the sand.

Originally hailing from the US but now residing in Berlin, Mr Massei makes a strong statement of intent with a couple of raw tech house missives built specifically for those hallowed Berlin dance floors.

The lead track is an intense affair, all brooding beats and fervent swagger. Deep, dark and dirty. As is the other original production on offer, ‘The Creator’. Again, it’s all about the bottom end. Pure, undiluted dark energy.

Remixes this time around come from label boss Dave Seaman who turns in a large slab of peak time Techno. The driving bass and rattling percussion power this interpretation, punctuated by some wonky arp work that surges and cascades through the breakdowns. Big room business.

And completing the package, a producer who has lit up 2015 so far with an impressive glut of releases for the likes of Noir, Suara, Material and Go Deeva… Third Son. The Welsh wizard retains all the original’s authentic passion but adds a pulsating bassline to proceedings to provide a fuller production. Formidable stuff.

A dispatch from the darkside then. Prepare to be corrupted.

Jaap Ligthart & Alice Rose ‘I Know Change’ Out Now on Selador Recordings

jaap ligthart_2It’s hard to believe that it will be exactly two years ago since we launched our beloved label. It really has flown by in the blink of an eye. And so, to mark the occasion of 24 successful months in business, we bring you release number 24. You could call it OCD behaviour but we like to think of it as symmetry 😉

Step forward Mr Jaap Ligthart, a Dutchman who has been on our radar for some time now with a number of fantastic edits and reworkings but is now making the natural transition into original productions. Together with Ms. Alice Rose, a vocalist who’s pass credits include guesting on tracks for the likes of Gabriel Ananda and Eagles & Butterflies, they’ve created something rather special. ‘I Know Change’ is a sensuous piece of work. Deep House in the very real sense of the phrase.

And that is something that our remixers on this project have truly understood. Both Him Self Her and Show-B have delivered exquisite interpretations that give the whole package an overriding sense of class and quality.

Him Self Her keep things deep and moody with a restrained, atmospheric, sophisticated piece of work picking up plaudits from Nicolas Massayeff and Danny Daze through to Joeski and Hernan Cattaneo, whilst Show-B heads into slightly tougher territory encapsulated by some distinctive rollercoaster percussion effects that have already seen Maceo Plex, Ame, Dixon, Solomon, Sasha, Mano Le Tough & Adratique showing their support. And if all that wasn’t enough, they both deliver vocal free dubs too!

So then, just to recap, it’s hotter than Megan Fox in Agent Provocateur and cooler than a Polar Bear’s toenails. What’s not to like?

Yours blissfully,

The Selador Sect

Showcase Volume 2 Compilation (Part2) now out on Selador Recordings

selador showcase 2-2Hello again.

No sooner have you had to catch your breath from the delights of our Selador Showcase – Part 1 promo than we’re back with the accompanying Part 2. Yes, hot on the heels of last weeks objects of lust and desire, we bring you another bespoke capsule collection of electronic battle weapons especially designed for your delight and delectation.

This time around, leading from the front is label ambassador and all round top bloke, Robert Babicz who brings yet another slice of Babicz style goodness in the form of ‘Auralphase’. Layer upon layer of elegant melodies sitting atop a strong rhythmic backbone and just the right dose of acid, it’s business as usual from the big man, classy and emotive.

Andrea Arcangeli & Pakkio Sans bring us ‘We Oppose It’ next, a wonderful melodic gem that’s been heavily road tested by both Messrs Seaman & Parry over the last few months. The Italian duo are hot off the back of recent releases for the likes of Parquet and Smiley Fingers and this will only serve cement their burgeoning reputation. Get on board.

UK producer, Dom Kane follows with ‘Crisis Aborted’. Featuring cleverly programmed interwoven arp patterns astride a seductive groove, this has been an office favourite for sometime now and so we’re very happy to finally share it. A secret weapon if ever there was one.

New boy to the Selaldor family, Roland M Dill then brings some ‘Winter Splendor’ to proceedings in his own inimitable way. As long time fans of the German producer, we are so pleased to have him on board and this beautifully crafted piece of work certainly doesn’t disappoint. The devil’s in the detail.

And wrapping things up, Dimitri Nakov returns to Selador after his recent Dee Montero remix, this time collaborating with B-Vision on the exquisite ‘Vapour’. And whilst they may be the rearguard on this delicious two part compilation, rest assured they’re not just here to make up the numbers. Quite they contrary. They close things out in a complete blaze of glory.

So, five more deliciously tasty morsels to get your teeth into then. Don’t be shy. Tuck in! 😉

Selador Recordings –  Since Forever.
