We had the good fortune of connecting with Sela Recordz and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Sela, what is the most important factor behind your success?
The most important factor behind Sela Recordz success would have to be pushing our product beyond our limits creating a top quality industry standard product. Darmedius and myself are constantly pushing to make our newest track better than the last, musically and mixing wise. When you start a business from nothing you become forced to use the resources around you, allowing new perspective for the next innovation. Darmedius and myself watch online courses and YouTube videos to help us innovate and upgrade systems to allow product evolution. Aside from trying to make our product the best in the region, Sela Recordz focuses on keeping strong relationships with our people as well. One of our main goals is to be of service to our people. As much as we want to focus on the music alone, we also share with our people how to live a happy and healthy life. Community service is a main focus for Sela Recordz because our goal is to have massive positive impact.

What should our readers know about your business?
Sela Recordz was created through Darmedius and Sancheezyy. Darmedius is the Sela Recordz Engineer and Sancheezyy is Sela Recordz musical producer. This dynamic duo create such a unique sound nobody has ever heard of. They describe their music to be the new wave west cost sound along with modern day R&B and trap. From using memorizing guitar riffs to throwing 808’s on top, their sound completely differentiates from the rest of Los Angeles. Sela Recordz has evolved through time through lots of trial and error. Many mistakes and errors have actually help them understand how they should be working efficiently. They do not describe their journey to be easy at all. Their work consist of daily improvement, non-stop action and minimal breaks. The way they overcome challenges is by giving each other positive reinforcements and watch/study motivational speakers such as Robin Sharma, Tony Robbins and Steve Jobs. They call themselves the obsessive lovers of sound which is why they cannot stop working. When they find themselves stuck in a heavy business situation they journal about the issue, read about issue or even meditate. They find those solutions to have massive impact when business gets heavy.

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
The first place we would invite our people to, would be to an UGHHBlog show. They have the most massive hip hop shows in all of Los Angeles. They have headliners such as “Gavlyn, Benny the Butcher, Necro, Conejo and Self Provoked” Once taking them to the UGHHBlOG show we would then take them to 1st street in front of Food 4 Less in East Los Angeles for some hand made tacos. Another event we would take our people to would be to a Sela Hip-Hop event. They have live rap battles with $1000 dollar contests. Those are always a great time! Besides those two shows we would also show our people the beautiful beaches and hikes in Southern California.

The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
We wanted to give a big shout out to the South East Los Angeles people! From Huntington Park, South Gate, Commerce, Downey, and Bell Gardens. We hope to attract artist who want to evolve themselves into the person they have always wanted to be through their music! We want to invite anybody who is interested in achieving their dream through creating music! You guys have showed us mad love at the Sela Hip-Hop Shows and we want to have your back now!
