Wah Wah 45s

The brainchild of dj's simon goss and his brother chris, that sprung to life way back in 1989, the hey day of acid jazz, in the form of the first proper wah wah session at the old albany (the venue where the Chemical Brothers started too!!) in london.

After some serious underground parties, the session returned to the albany in 1996, and its quality selection of wah wah jazz,funk, latin and the best of the new skool sounds impressed the Jazz Cafe's Adrian Gibson so much that he headhunted Simon and Chris to run their friday night sessions, along with (over the years) DJ's Billy Whizz and Oscar Goldenchild. The wah wah sessions remained at the jazz cafe for another four years, seeing off all in their path, and keeping the good folk of Camden happy with far too many legendary parties to remember. Over the years wah wah played host to the likes of pucho and the latin soul brothers, donnie, fred wesley, common and nathan haines to name but a few. Guest DJ's varied from phil asher, a man called adam, bob jones, ig culture and dj's from around the globe including the kyoto jazz massive, espen horne, eivind olsvik and dj spider from france. In 1999, simon and chris enticed mouseorgan's dom servini to join them on their quest to find the perfect beat. Due to Chris' pivotal role in London Elektricity (Hospital records) his involvement in wah wah has become less pronounced, leaving Simon and Dom to run most of the club sessions and the record label alike.
