This summer sees the very timely arrival of a brand new record label from the Wah Wah 45s family. Allison Recordings further explores the world of electronic music, showcasing up-and-coming producers and music makers, as well as artists that have been on the Wah Wah radar for a number of years. Allison leans towards the dance floor of course, but isn’t your average club music record label..
Whilst this imprint was set up to represent a more electronic output, the soulful DNA of Wah Wah 45s still shines through. The second single to be released from the forthcoming Allison compilation, Sun After Rain, comes from London based instrumental duo, Lawn.Buy on Bandcamp
Formed in 2019, Lawn is a collaboration between friends Joe Nicklin and Joe Martin. Combining live, acoustic drums with electronic and synthesised elements, their music takes influence from disco, psyche, jazz and hip hop. Tina is the first taste of what’s to come from this talented pair – something to whet your appetite for their forthcoming debut long-player. “We started working on Tina in Spring 2020; lockdown had forced us to work remotely for the first time, sending loops and arrangements back and forth until a track began to take form. We bounced a demo originally entitled Quarantina Turner, a nod to the unusual situation that had made the writing of Tina possible.”
