WahWah 45


Dom Servini is one of the main players and a stalwart of the eclectic music scene in London. Having started DJing in the early ‘90s in Brighton with the legendary Snowboy, he then moved back to the capital and took it by storm, starting a Sunday afternoon session at the Jazz Cafe, a residency at the Blue Note, and then his own club venture, Mouseorgan, which ran for 8 years. Dom then joined the Wah Wah DJ crew at The Jazz Café, and went on to become part of their record label project in 2001 – a label he now runs with Wah Wah artist Adam Scrimshire and Hospital Records boss Chris Goss.

Releases on Wah Wah 45s have since included music from artists such as the Hackney Colliery Band, Colman Brothers, Lea Lea, Resonators, Bev Lee Harling and Stac.

Dom is also a respected music journalist, and was singles editor for jazz bible Straight No Chaser from 2003, then its off-shoot Shook, and now has his own double-spread in Echoes magazine.

As a radio DJ, Dom hosts a weekly live radio show on Back2Back FM as well as a monthly Wah Wah Radio show with Adam, and has also featured on BBC 6Music with Huey Morgan, XFM, BBC London and on Gilles Peterson’s radio shows.

Over the past decade Dom has DJ’d across the globe, from touring Japan, the USA, Canada and Australia, to regular gigs in central and Eastern Europe, as well as Scandinavia, and even Ibiza. UK gigs have included his famous weekly residency with Gilles Peterson, ‘Goin’ Downstairs’, and residencies at The Jazz Café, Brixton Jamm, The Yard, Favela Chic, The Garage, Cargo, The Vibe Bar, The Alibi, Queen Of Hoxton, Big Chill venues and much more!! Dom has also played numerous festivals including The Big Chill, Isle Of Wight, Bestival, Soundwave and co-runs the Southern Soul Festival in Montenegro.

His energetic and open-minded mix of anything soulful, be it afro, jazz, house or hip hop, make him a club favourite.
