GIG: Wah Wah 45s 10th Birthday Special

Wah Wah 45s 10th Birthday

Here’s one for your diaries! Wah Wah 45s 10th Birthday Special at The Scala in London on Friday 30th October, 9pm to 5am. Tickets are £12 advance from TicketWeb or £15 on the door – think it would be wise to buy early for this one, to avoid disappointment and such!

One glance at the above flyer should be enough to get you clicking on the TicketWeb link, but allow me to wax lyrical, if you will…

Wah Wah 45s are the club nights and record label run by DJs Simon Goss and Dom Servini – and to a lesser extent also Chris Goss (Simon’s Brother!). As well as a fantastic history of hosting great nights in London over the years, the Wah Wah 45s crew have also put out an impressive array of records on 7-inch vinyl (the clue is in the name!). I myself own quite a few of their tasty 45s and many of them are by the artists you can see on that flyer.

It’s not too often you see the likes of DJ Format, Bonobo, Danny Byrd, The Apples, Part-Time Heroes, Ashley Thomas, Loefah, Illum Sphere, Stac, Scrimshire and Rob Mac all billed for one single night. They’ll be over 20 quality acts, spanning downtempo sounds, hip-hop beats, funky breaks and dubstep – all spread across three rooms to celebrate turning 10. I’d say it’s gonna be a wicked night indeed. So, see you there!

To finish, here’s some material from Wah Wah 45s artist, Stac, who you can catch playing live at the Birthday Special at the end of the month…
