The Selador Showcase - The Lucky Thirteenth

Various Artists

SEL135 | 2021-05-03

It’s the firmest of fixtures in the Selador schedule, you know the score by now – there’s gold in them there Showcases. And it’s lucky number 13 this time as we celebrate the label’s 8th birthday with our latest six-pack of turbocharged goodness.

As is our way, it’s another thoroughly international affair kicking off with an Anglo/Germanic collaboration made in Seladorian Heaven, as label boss (job share) Steve Parry teams up with Marc DePulse, a veteran of several previous Selador releases. ‘Lokalmatador’ will firmly ensconce itself in your head, as a central riff and rock-solid percussion keep it rooted, allowing all sorts of madness to ensue.

We then cross the border to France where the ever-prolific Dorian Craft awaits. Dorian debuted on Selador with ‘Pleia’ back on Showcase 6 and we are delighted to welcome him back with the hypnotic throbbing chugger that is ‘Kiyora’, where a melon twisting riff duels with Dorian’s trademark ethnic-influenced vibes.

Heading South, sometimes the song title of an instrumental electronic track can perfectly convey its mood and that’s certainly the case with the Selador debut from the blossoming FKA Mash. The South African producer who we’ve been carefully tracking for some time brings us ’Starlit Desert’, a thing of real understated beauty, beautiful synths swathing, underpinned by a sumptuous groove.

Four tracks in, and we welcome Danish duo Baime back to Team Selador for the first time since 2019’s well-received mix of Animal Trainer’s ‘Amaron’. New production ‘Kaimo’ is one for the dark recesses of both minds and dance floors, enticing you to partake of a dose of hedonism.

The next destination on our whistle-stop world tour of electronic production talent is Lebanon where another debutant Atribut delivers the intense ‘You Gave Me Love’, a heady brew that builds and builds ‘til going full acidic as the vocal refrain gnaws into your brain.

Finally, we finish with a trip to Italy for another very welcome label returnee, Paul Ursin, whose mix of techno and house has graced many a fine imprint. As with ‘Starlit Desert’, ‘Seaflight’ is aptly named, an epic electronic deep dive no doubt inspired by Paul’s Sicilian homeland.

And with that, we raise a celebratory toast to Seladorian’s everywhere on the milestone of our 8th anniversary. Thank you as always for your continued support. Here’s to the next 8 and beyond.

Acid House Forever.
