Dom Servini is a legend of the eclectic music scene in London. As co-owner of the Wah Wah 45s record label, and resident DJ at their club and live events, as well as being an internationally respected turntablist, Dom knows not only how to rock a party, but also has the knack for finding an exciting new artist or two. Dom has been responsible for signing Hackney Colliery Band, The Milk, Dele Sosimi, Resonators and many more.
Dom is also an experienced music journalist, and was singles editor for jazz bible Straight No Chaser from 2003, then its offshoot Shook, followed by his own double-spread in the black music monthly, Echoes magazine, and now writes regularly for the highly respected Bandcamp website as well as the resurgent SNC, back after a long hiatus.
As a radio DJ, Dom hosts his own monthly radio show on Soho Radio, as well as a Wah Wah Radio show with label partner Adam Scrimshire. Both the latter and Dom’s previous weekly show on Back2Back FM have been shortlisted in the Mixcloud Awards, and the Wah Wah Radio Show won Best International Funk & Soul Radio Show 2014. He can also be found broadcasting regular shows for SOAS Radio and new station, Mi-Soul Connoisseurs.
Dom was also recently ranked by FACT Magazine as number 7 in the Top 100 Most Underrated DJs on the planet!
Over the past two and a half decades Dom has played across the globe, from touring Japan, North America and Australia, to regular gigs in Europe. UK gigs have included residencies with Gilles Peterson as well as the famous South London Soul Train and weekly Fridays at The Jazz Café. Dom is a festival regular and has played The Big Chill, Soundwave Croatia, Lovebox, and Bestival to name but a few, and every year DJs and hosts the Southern Soul Festival (which he co-founded) in Montenegro. Dom is also celebrating 25 years of DJing this year with a full world tour. His energetic and open-minded mix of anything soulful, be it afro-beat, jazz, house or hip hop, make him a club favourite.
