Melokolektiv ‘Polaroid EP’ Out Now On Selador Recordings

Melokolektiv SEL014 packshotYou lucky people! The next dispatch from Selador HQ is here and this time comes courtesy of highly regarded French production duo, Melokolektiv. Following recent releases for such respected labels as Crosstown Rebels & Get Physical, Selador are now proud to present a lovingly crafted 4 track EP of class and quality that effortlessly straddles the genres and cements their ever growing reputation as one of the foremost leaders of the new school.

First out of the blocks is the sinister ‘Polaroid’ with it’s hypnotising lead line all drugged up to the eyeballs and basking in raw simplicity. Don’t believe Girls Aloud, this is what the real sound of the underground sounds like! ;-)

The baton then gets passed to ‘Left Out’ for a brooding slice intense darkness that will no doubt  bring the likes of Berghain to it’s knees and have trainspotters everywhere wetting their knickers. Shazam that people!

‘Safari’ is next to step up continuing with the off-kilter drugged up vibes. Opening with layers emotive pads before unfolding into a killer mood setting groove. A stall setting intro track if ever there was one.

And finally bringing home the bacon on the final straight, it’s the moody menace of ‘Oxygen’ with it’s eerie synth beds and seductive bass line that rides on a housier vibe all the way to the finish line taking both tape and glory.

In conclusion, the Selador soundbite department says… A medal winning EP guaranteed to put you on the podium!

Though management prefer.. Dark, deep & dirty. Just the way we we like it ;-)

Over & Out.

The Selador crew

Dave Seaman & Funkagenda ‘Naughty Forest’ Out now on Selador Recordings

naughty forest_2If you go down to the woods today you’re in for a big surprise. Selador Recordings tenth instalment comes from the label’s co- owner Dave Seaman alongside sometime collaborator Funkagenda, intriguingly titled Naughty Forest and featuring remixes from two heavyweights of electronic dance music, Dapayk and Nicolas Masseyeff.

It’s another big release for Selador which further cements it’s growing reputation as one of the hottest new labels on the block and after sneaking a preview of their upcoming release schedule, it’s only a sign of things to come.

The Original mix has been a weapon in Seaman’s sets for several months now. A brooding melodic techno workout that captures his progressive roots but places them in a thoroughly contemporary setting. Driven by infectious percussive loops and topped off with ethereal vocal hits, it really hits it’s stride in the second half when the growling Moog bass takes hold. It’s a big one and no mistake. Tried and tested.

Niklas Wogt, aka Dapayk is first up on remix duty and he heads into deeper, darker territory to devastating effect. Centered around a relentless chugger of a groove, it tinkers with the original’s lead Reaktor riff teasing it in and out of the mix with aplomb. Smart, stylish and a little wonky, this is one for the heads.

And to complete this amazing package, Nicolas Masseyeff weighs in with another mix of sophisticated beauty. Unerringly restrained, almost regal and yet with menacingly eerie undertones, the breakdown creeps up on you slowly unfolding into the grooviest of bass lines. Sheer class.

And there you have it. Selador number ten. Incoming. Don’t say we didn’t warn you. Enjoy!

Get yours here now…

‘Flatter To Deceive’ Out Now on Great Stuff

online_1400x1400_gsr_210_SEAMAN_NEWMy debut for long running German label Great Stuff entitled ‘Flatter To Deceive’ is now available in all fine digital retail emporiums with rising star, Seff on remix duties. The original is a tough slab of rolling tech house with African undertones and a roof raising drop while Seff takes a slightly sparser, housier route which is bound to please his growing legion of fans including Hot Since 82 and Mark Knight. If you’ve managed to catch me at any of my gigs over the last few month’s chances are you’ll have heard me play this. It’s the one with the jungle noises! Enjoy ;-)
