For 15 years Wah Wah 45s have been releasing music with a soulful feel, regardless of sub-genre, many of which have no doubt ended up as staples of your local underground party on a Saturday night. That’s right, Wah Wah don’t just do acoustic soul, brass band funk, dub reggae and foot friendly jazz, we’ve been dipping our toes in the world of dance floor electronica for sometime and following on from the success of last year’s compilation, we thought it was about time we brought you the second instalment of “Wah Friends Electric”.

Alter Egoes

Volume 2 continues where it predecessor left off, covering the club friendly end of the Wah Wah back catalogue, from early deep house offerings from Aaron Jerome (the man behind the Sbtrkt mask) and blue eyed disco from Talc’s night club dwelling alter egoes Man / Boy featuring Girl, to more recent outings from Lea Lea, Paper Tiger and Scrimshire. Add to that previously unreleased, and exclusive to this compilation, remixes from The Reflex and Noisses, as well as other homegrown greats such as Stubborn Heart and Debian Blak, not to mention Japanese dons Goth-Trad and Anchorsong, and you’ve got one serious second volume of dance music from the Wah Wah vaults.


“If your partner loves you the best present they could buy you at Valentines is the new Wah Wah 45s album, Wah Friends Electric 2.

This year Wah Wah 45s celebrate 15 years of music, and those of you that are aware of their work will know they have been at the cutting edge of underground music with heralded acts Hackney Colliery Band, Scrimshire and my favourite Part-Time Heroes.
This album has been remixed by such luminaries as Sunlightsquare, The Reflex (who can do no wrong for me) and Suonho.
If you love your music electronic and on the left-side check it out the stand out tracks for me – Part-Time Heroes – Leaving, Bev Lee Harling – Why Don’t You Do Right? (cover) and a really interesting Henri-Pierre Noel version of A Fifth of Beethoven ( an electronic cover of the Walter Murphy classic) – trust me it works. Support your independent label.” Andy Sharp (Soul Survivors Magazine, UK)
“Thanks for sending, lovely compilation full of joy, loving especially the Scrimshire remix, the Suonho remix and the Reflex version.” Renegades Of Jazz (Hiperbole Records, Germany)

“Another wonderful Wah Friends Electric comp – some classics and reworks all thrown in for good measure.” Simon Harrison (UK)

“I’ve always like the edits and remixes that your artists out out and am a big fan of many of the acts on this, so it’s refreshing to hear new versions of some tracks that I already know. I particularly liked the following: The Hilo Bay Halfway (Scrimshire Mix): love the jazzy ska feel that has basically taking what is already a killer track in a completely new direction; Some Other Wonder (Sunlightsquare Remix): What? Colman Brothers are a House Band!; Why Don’t You Do Right? (Suonho Remix): I pretty much dig anything Suonho touches but combined with Bev Lee Harling’s haunting vocals this is just so sweet on the ears; Alignment (Anchorsong Remix): Love the vocal and groove; Apartheid (Is Tropical Mix): What is already a real powerful track and statement takes a new route and remains powerful. Great groove! All in all though I dig the whole release!” Mr. Lob (Black Heat Radio Show, Australia)

“Great reworks from Noisses, Is Tropical and The Reflex! Jelabi from Aaron Jerome is a gem!!” Cesare Cera (Irma / Black Mighty Wax, Italy)

“Wonderful! Part-Time Heroes – Leaving, Gene Dudley Group, Stac, Henri-Pierre Noel, Colman Brothers – Some Other Wonder all top drawer but the killer for me is Man/Boy feat Girl – Only Perfect. How good is that record!? Got my full support on this one.”Johnny Reckless (Soul Brother records / Colourful Radio, UK)

“Who’s that Aaron Jerome guy? He’s got potential, you should sign him 😉 Love Adam’s Gene Dudley mix too – quality all round.” DJ Gilla (First Word, UK)
