Allo Love, Vol. 2

A 16 track downtempo album (1h 11m 18s) — released August 27th 2012 on Wah Wah 45s

It's been a huge twelve months for Wah Wah 45s head honcho, producer, singer, song-writer and DJ Adam Scrimshire. Having seen his second album, 'The Hollow', receive the Album of the Week plaudit by Gilles Peterson on BBC6Music, he then went on to tour the UK, support The Herbaliser and Jazzanova at Koko in London, and play both Lovebox and Soundwave Croatiafestivals.

What better way to continue this run than to let you into a bit of inside knowledge about what makes this music man tick.Having kickedoff this new series of compilations last year with other label boss Dom Servini's "Allo Love" selection, Volume Two gives us an insight into his partner's muscial diet.

Perhaps unsurprisingly given the man's own output, the down-tempo and electronica end of things is well covered with lush offerings from Hiatus & Shura, Amenta, Matches and Jesse Futerman. And in places, things get even more horizontal with more acoustic offerings from High Hopes Society and of course the man himself with his acoustic version of album favourite "A Promise Is All It Was".

Let us not forget, though, that Scrimshire is also a DJ, and a damn fine one at that, and there's plenty of turntable fodder to be found with Persian's lovers and jungle mash-up, Twin Cities' mid-tempo soul stirrer, Skinshape's take on a Bill Withers classic, and plenty of cuts from the Wah Wah 45s stable including music from Part-time Heroes, Resonators, Paper Tiger, Hackney Colliery Band and LV's deadly club version of Scrimshire's "Everything You Say" featuring the Cinematic Orchestra's Heidi Vogel. And even then there's time for a couple of exclusives - Easy Access Orchestra's re-work for Colman Brothers is quite possibly a modern summertime anthem, and new signing Gene Dudley Group get their first ever airing on Wah Wah 45s. Blimey, we're out of breathe just thinking about it.

A late contender for album of the year, and possibly one of the best album’s Wah Wah 45s has put out - Gilles Peterson BBC 6Music
