Since it’s launch in April 2013, Steve Parry and Dave Seaman’s Selador label has successfully walked the underground tightrope releasing exciting music from across many genre’s. From underground sensations Samu.l, Nicolas Masseyeff, and Han Haak through to industry stalwarts Piemont, Darren Emerson and Chris Fortier, Selador has become one of the scenes most well-respected labels. This year marks a new milestone in their meteoric rise with a joint party at Amsterdam Dance Event with Spanish tech house imprint Sincopat. Dave Seaman, with over 25 years experience in the music industry as a DJ, producer, Mixmag Editor, and record label owner leads the charge for Selador. He’ll be ably joined by Ex-Cream resident and business partner Steve Parry and label mates D-Nox, Third Son, Habischman and Jaap Ligthart.
“For he last 7 years I’ve been attending ADE, its a fantastic gathering of like-minded music enthusiasts from around the world. Partying or work, or a nice combo of both – its a great conference. We know how amazing the line up’s over there are, and so we thought was about time we dipped our toes in.
Dave and I made a list of labels we could do a collab party with, and Sincopat was top of both of our lists. And so this little soire was born. We love Sincopat, and we have a lot of artists that appear on their imprint and ours, so it seemed to make perfect sense. And the line up is like a mini festival! We are all very excited for this one!” – Steve Parry (Selador)
Sincopat, a label dedicated to the search of the roots of black music as well as the essence of dance sounds, leads with an eye towards jazz experimentation staying in the essence of Soul, featuring the frenetic rhythm of funk and the energy of house music. Label head, AFFKT has been a tastemaker and DJ since 2008, bringing his unique vision of house music on luminary labels Kling Klong, Noir Music and Suara as well as his own highly successful label – Sincopat. Joining him will be Pete Oak, David Grahna, Audio Junkies, Mattia Pompeo and Mike Ravelli.
