Yay! I'm very happy to inform you that the mix is finally done and on it's merry way to be mastered.
I'm really pleased with how it turned out in the end despite not being able to license a couple of important tracks. One in particular will haunt me forever as it fitted so perfectly but I had to take it out because it was just way too early for the label as they're not planning to release until the end of the year. It's just one of those things that you have to take on the chin and move on from. As you guys never heard how it should have been you will never know and you don't miss what you never had right? So, c'est la vie. It really shouldn't bother me anyway as we still ended up with a track list that's like a who's who of all the hottest producers making waves on the underground electronic music scene right now. I will send you the full track list in the next couple of weeks just to whet your appetites further :-)
Once we get the masters back next week and the artwork has been approved we will be pressing go on the production process which will take approximately 4 weeks. All of which means you should be looking at a mid/late August delivery on your doorsteps.
I should also say that although we've been using the working title of the 'Kickstarter Compilation' we have decided to re-name it as things were getting bit complicated with the rights to the Kickstarter name. It is somebody else's brand after all. So from now, it will be forever known as 'The Selador Sessions Volume 1'. As I said in my video at the very beginning, I wanted this to be the start of a new series so it makes sense to do it under the umbrella of my new label and hopefully carry on where The Therapy Sessions series left off.
So that's it for now. I really hope you enjoy it when it arrives. Personally, i will probably never listen to it again. I've heard it enough times now to last me a lifetime! And you never know, with your continued support, we might even do this all again one day.
If you would like to keep up to date with what I'm up to and any possible future projects like this one, you can join the mailing list at www.djdaveseaman.com (it's in a box on the right underneath my Tour Dates) for the occasional newsletters. Don't worry, I won't spam you. I'm nowhere near organised enough for that!
