Something a little bit funkier, twisted and 21st Century here for you today, as Dom Servini of the fiercely independent London label Wah Wah 45′s mixes up some of his favourite sounds from his slots at the Electric Elephant festival in Croatia this past July. There is already a slavering eulogy to the festival a few posts below so we won’t repeat ourselves. We will tell you that Wah Wah has had a place in our hearts and our record bags ever since it’s early days re-issuing choice cuts such as this:
Dom can always be relied upon for all sorts of modern beat-trickery to keep an open minded dancefloor moving, thus we were delighted to see that we would be sharing the bill on a boat on the Adriatic. He truly rocked it out that day with a set of sizzling jazz-house, floorburning disco edits, and funky what-nots that had us leaning over the decks and having a sneaky peek every ten minutes or so. We won’t even mention his excursions into drum n bass and bad-ass soulful boogie during his Beach Bar and Main Stage slots…..There might even be a part 2 to come!!

Ding, ding! After a long wait it’s round two of the Gmos & Nico series of mix-ups. Queensbury rules, no grandstanding, no overwrought premeditated blends, just hit record and hope for the best. The opening two tracks indicate when this was recorded (r.i.p GSH) and from there it’s everything from Tom Noble’s exceptional re-issues/re-edits, Audio Atlas, Nick Straker Band, Chaka Khan, Kerri Chandler and a whole load of other shit that hasn’t been properly ID’d yet.
