Marc DePulse ‘My Daily Keys’ (Dave Seaman Remix) out now on Jeahmon Records

JEAHMON!011My new remix for esteemed German producer Marc DePulse is out now on his own Jeahmon Records entitled ‘My Daily Keys’. His original was a beefy piano based house track which I tried to turn into a slightly glitchier tech houser by taking the original’s midi parts and changing the lead sounds. I’m really pleased with the result and very happy to get such lovely feedback from the likes of Marc Marzenit, Betoko, Denney, Darin Epsilon, CID Inc, Piemont & Raxon to name just a few. Hope you like it too :-)

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.

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
