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 Tuesday night live DAB radio show on Colourful Radio as well as a monthly Wah Wah Radio show with Adam, and has also featured on 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 regular gigs at The Jazz Café, Favela Chic, The Garage, Cargo, The Vibe Bar, The Alibi, Queen Of Hoxton, Big Chill venues and much more!! Dom has also played at The Big Chill Festival and is a regular at London’s Brick Lane Festival too, and hosts Wah Wah’s annual session at The Scala in London which sees over 1000 people attend every year.
His energetic and open-minded mix of anything soulful, be it afro, jazz, house or hip hop, make him a club favourite.
