wAFF is now a firm fixture in the clan of hot creative hedonists. Back with ‘Puke It Up’ this time on darker, club-focused off-shoot label Hot Trax, wAFF delivers more of the dense techno material he so clearly relishes making. A pair of head-tripping and immaculately crafted techno cuts; both ‘Puke It Up’ and B-side ‘Love’ (a swinging tropical acid-synth meltdown) will do serious damage on the dancefloor no question about it. Hold on tight because you’re in for a ride on wAFF’s big, bad and heavy bass train.
Leeds boy wAFF has in the past year gained lofty recognition for this industrious and dextrous talents winning the accolade of best single of 2012 in the DJ Mag awards with ‘Jo Johnson’ from his debut summer smash ‘Rainbows EP’ on Hot Creations.
With a list of admirers including Luciano, Loco Dice and Sven Vath (who included Jo Johnson on his ´The Sound Of The 13th Season´ compilation) and with Jamie Jones and Carl Cox already hammering ‘Puke It Up’ ; the 24 year old wAFF has also quickly reached the status of hotly in-demand global DJ - smashing into the big league within months of his first EP release but armed with a talent he’s been harbouring since his mid-teens.
Second Hot Creations release came in the winter of 2012 with the ‘Eclipse EP’, another masterstroke, followed by a massive remix of Digitaria’s ‘Shine’ earlier this year - all further proof of wAFF’s raw and unstoppable talent.
Inviting wAFF to play a couple of Paradise gigs last year, Jamie Jones and co. are holding on to their wonderboy making him a resident at the night this season as well as bagging these essential new cuts for Hot Trax.
