Selador Showcase EP – ‘The Third Generation’ Out Now

selador showcase 4From the series that has previously served up such gems as Robert Babicz’s ‘Auralphase’ and Dave Seaman’s ‘Justified Replacement Of Lulu’, the Selador Showcase is back with another batch of beauties lovingly collated for your listening pleasure.

For the third in the series, we’ve opted for an EP rather than LP as we know first hand how increasingly difficult it is to digest full length albums in this crazy age of quantity over quality. So without further ado, here they are, five exclusive Techno weapons, from established artists, label favourites and new names alike, every one a thriller in their own right.

We open proceedings with a brand new name to production, introducing Liverpool based Irishman, Never More with ‘Forward Momentum’. Already a stalwart of the Irish scene as part of the legendary Republik crew out of Waterford, this debutant shines with all the spirit and endeavour that his club’s reputation has garnered over the last couple of years.

One of our long time favourite producers, Marc DePulse follows with a Teutonic fire bolt right out of the top drawer. Delivering precision with an effortless cool as only the German’s know how, this comes ahead of Marc’s first full blown EP for the label just to whet your whistle, so to speak.

Lonya further cements the EPs credentials with ‘Makore 7’, it’s growling synths pulsing and fizzing their way through a perfectly formed, understated arrangement. 2016 is already panning out to be a momentous one for Lonya. Don’t miss the boat.

Several Definitions then makes his Selador debut with a dark destroyer built around rattling hats, menacing synths and haunting vocal clips. Already massive for label bosses Seaman & Parry, this is just a taste of what’s soon to come from Several Definitions on Selador. Watch this space.

French duo, Datametrik round things off in fine style, picking up where they left off from their Xenon EP for the label last year with another mind melting excursion into contemporary Techno. Totally trippy yet equally equanimous – no mean feat. Respect is due.

Upgrade your perspective people. Fight your mind. The Third Generation are here.

OUT NOW: Tom Peters’ ‘Two Of Us / Restless’ on selador recordings

rsz_tom_peters-2bAs February 29th only comes around every four years, we thought it befitting of this latest fleeting appearance to celebrate with yet another fine release from our burgeoning Selador stable. Be rude not to, right?

And what better way than with the label debut of Mr Tom Peters. German born, Berlin based, Tom has already released music through such esteemed channels as German heavyweight labels, Kompakt & Get Physical and so naturally, we’re very pleased he’s decided to add Selador to his already impressive résumé.

Featuring two very different but equally strong original productions, the tribal tech of ‘Two Of Us’ with it’s wonky synth surges and sensuous vocal inflections to the more forceful peak time techno flavourings of ‘Restless’. It really is a double header not to be missed.

On remixing assignments, rising German star, Tim Engelhardt sprinkles his own magic dust over ‘Two Of Us’ whilst Mexican duo Climbers step up to the plate with a stonking interpretation of ‘Restless’. Basically, it’s a win win situation. Just the way we like it.

So.. Happy Leap Day everyone. Don’t say we didn’t spoil you 😉

Team Selador

Habischman ‘The Way’ EP out now on Selador Recordings

habischman-2Following his superb remix on Quivver’s ‘Wait For You’ for Selador last summer, Iman Habibi aka Habischman makes his fully fledged artist debut on Dave Seaman & Steve Parry’s imprint with a four track Extended Player fit for a king.
The Iranian born Berlin resident has been making some tidal sized waves recently with releases on the likes of Moda Black, Noir Music, Steyoyoke & Booka Shade’s Blaufield and in our humble, if slightly biased opinion, this release is positively tsunami-esque.

From the irresistible depth of the title track to the pulsating dramatics of ‘All I Dream’ and the shimmering zeitgeist house of ‘Skin’ to the seductive bounce of ‘Dub Rumors’, we are ticking ticking boxes, left, right & centre here. All bases covered. Home run.
Team Selador – Pitch perfect

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.
