In the crowded electronic music climate, it’s hard maintaining a
blueprint that helps you stand out from the crowd but in its short
history, Selador Recordings has managed to do just that. The label
run by Dave Seaman and Steve Parry has quickly built a reputation
as leading exponents of high grade house and techno.
The label’s name was inspired from a memorable passage from
Richard Kelly’s 2001 cult classic movie ‘Donnie Darko’, where the
most phonetically pleasing combination of words in the English
language is mooted – Cellar Door. The assertion is that nothing
else manages to make our vocabulary quite as beautiful. The idea
of ‘beautiful sound’ through communication struck a chord with the
duo, highlighting their own eternal quest for the perfect beat.
Already the label has released a diverse amount of music from a
seriously talented ensemble of established names and exciting
young talent. Cristoph, Danny Howells, Guy Mantzur, Third Son,
Robert Babicz, Lee Van Dowski, Moonwalk, Dubspeeka, D-Nox &
Beckers, Gorge and Quivver are just a few of the people who’ve
been at the helm of the ever developing Selador sound.
Oh and they also found the time to make electronic music history
too. Seaman and Selador managed to fund the first ever mix
compilation through crowd sourcing site Kickstarter, continuing a
trajectory of ingenuity and trailblazing in the field which started
when he became the first ever DJ, alongside Carl Cox, to mix a
commercially available mix CD.
Selador Recordings, purveyors of the finest underground house
and techno, since forever!
