Sum up this podcast in 10 words…
A selection of filthy goodness that makes
What’s your personal favourite track on it?
I was spoilt for choice making this mix, so many great new tracks around, but Julian Wassermann & Florian Kruse – Gotland on Speicher is especially dirty and dangerous.
What’s the special ingredient in this mix?
The mix is made with love. I suppose that’s the secret ingredient here. I love the music of today as much as ever. I try and build the vibe when djing and start deeper, build with energy and leave you with a smile on your face. I’ve tried to reflect a club set in this mix. So hopefully you can feel the love!
What’s the best gig you’ve played recently?
The last monster gig I played was Hush Hush at Mint Club in Leeds with John Digweed and OC & Verde. Completely sold out and it was rammed and had a brilliant atmosphere. The stuff of dreams really, absolutely rammed for my early set.
What have you got coming up?
A couple of hometown gigs – which I always love, so first up – Easter Thursday ‘Selador’ at 3B(eat) Records new underground venue (Underneath the shop!) ‘The Spot’ – I’m playing all night, plus my good mate Nick Gartland starting things off upstairs djing in the shop.
Plus playing alongside Patrice Baumel for 303 in Williamson Tunnels, Liverpool on 4th May.
Selador is a real labour of love, something Dave (Seaman) and I do purely because we love it, we hope you have found some music in our first 100 releases that make you smile. Thank you to all those that have supported the label, bought music, wear a t-shirt, made a track for us or danced to our sets. Here’s to the next 100 releases.
