Dom Servini is a legend of the eclectic music scene in London. As co-owner of the much loved 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 a radio DJ, Dom hosts a 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.
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 decades Dom has DJ’d across the globe, from touring Japan, the USA, Canada and Australia, to regular gigs in central and Eastern Europe. UK gigs have included his cult weekly session with Gilles Peterson, Goin’ Downstairs, as well as being a resident at the legendary That’s How It Is! club night at Bar Rhumba. He currently holds down residencies at the famous South London Soul Train and a brand new weekly Friday night at The Jazz Café called Soul City. Dom is a festival regular and has played The Big Chill Festival, Isle Of Wight Festival, Soundwave Croatia, Lovebox, and Bestival to name but a few, and will once again DJ & host at 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.
