J.A.W is back in Berlin next June 6th for a special collaboration with Theo Parrish’s, Wildheart Recordings. A night fully dedicated to the label universe with a line-up curated by Sir Parrish himself-a-first-of-its-kind. “If the Sound Signature label releases are for the body, Wildheart is for everything else.”
Theo’s own words to sums up Wildheart’s philosophy. The first release has seen legendary Afrobeat drummer Tony Allen, Andrew Ashong, David Okumu & Soul singer Eska working together with the man. The second one is an epic, spiritual jazz-funk from Los Angeleno, revived by Theo & London heads Dego & Akwasi Mensah to be soon followed by producer & avid crate digger Budgie for the third release.

Theo Parrish is now based in Detroit after an extensive music career as a techno/house artist but hardly needs an introduction. As Sound Signature’s boss he is one of the most influential and respected producers nowadays, an incredible DJ and a huge influence ever for the J.A.W Family.
Dego McFarlane is another true music pioneer, a producer who has been shaped the UK-London sound over the last two decades with 4Hero or his many other aliases. He’s responsible for plenty of classic tunes & alongside other London visionaries, for one of the best club nights & musical movements ever, Co-Op. J.A.W. is very happy to have such legends.

Also performing is Ben “Budgie” Scholefield who has been raised at the record shop institution Honest Jon’s and has collaborated with Fatima or The Alchemist. With his straight vinyl soul Gospel set – something he got big props for from the likes of Theo or Dam Funk – he should turn Prince Charles into a holly church! The courtyard will have Soulfood & plenty of records to get for all the diggers, so be sure to come early and do not forget to train your Footwork!
