Selador Recordings proudly presents:
SELADOR DECADE VOLUME 1 (SEL 165)
It’s our 10th birthday.
It’s the first in our series of celebratory EPs.
And if you’ll forgive us for slipping, dare we say somewhat uncharacteristically, into hyperbole – it’s bloomin’ well humungous!
Our anniversary celebrations are centred around a whole host of truly mouth-watering collaborations that we confidently predict will soundtrack the year to come. So, without any further ado, allows us to introduce you to the runners & riders on Volume 1…
3D (Danny Howells, Darren Emerson, Dave Seaman) ft. Robert Owens: ‘Known Love’
There are few more wondrous sounds in house music than the vocals of the legendary Robert Owens – and we are beyond delighted to have him on the label, in partnership with our very own 3D supergroup. As ever, Robert’s sweet delivery effortlessly walks that tightrope between melancholy and euphoria in this paean to the travails of love. The 3D crew underpin this with a classic bassline and subtle riffing, all of which makes for a contemporary classic.
Olivier Giacomotto x Quivver: ‘Snailblazer’
Heads down and let’s goooo for this heavyweight Franco-Anglo meeting of minds! OG is truly an OG, and when did the sound of Quivver not make you shiver? Let this sonic sledgehammer act as your SatNav, whether your destination of choice is slap bang in the centre of the dancefloor, perched precariously by booming bass bins, or travelling to electronic nirvana via your headphones.
Argia x Jepe: ‘Salitre’
Our next international team up sees Spain repped by rising star Argia, who we’ve wanted on the label for aeons; and the Portugeuse born, now Berlin based, Jepe, making an oh so welcome Selador return after passing his remix assignments with aplomb. Our collaborators here chose each other, and it shows in the resulting magic, a sultry builder that wraps you in its blanket of emotive riffs throughout a life-affirming 8 minute wonder.
Anthony Pappa x Jamie Stevens x Alice Rose: ‘Nothing to Hide’
Our Aussie dream team, responsible for several of our most loved tracks of recent years, team up with the voice of one of Selador’s most pivotal releases in Alice Rose, vocalist on Jaap Ligthart’s celebrated ‘I Know Change’. It is, as you will no doubt have guessed, a total barnstormer, and the prefect way to round off EP1 of this thrilling Selador decade series.
Team Selador – Since Forever!
