Calling Josh Wink a legend is almost an understatement. As a producer of club classics like “Don’t Laugh” or “Higher State of Consciousness”, Wink has put the techno-ideal of making the most from a single idea to utter perfection. As the founder of Ovum records he has shaped over two decades of dance culture, Wink’s sets are hypnotic melting pots of house and techno, acid and funk, ambient subtlety and full four-to-the-floor immediacy, selections of the very finest electronic music has to offer thrown as an unpredictable, powerful curve ball.
“I still am making a living doing what I love and have passion for. So, that pretty much is a dream vision!”
Check out the Wink on Ovum :
“I am happy and blessed to be doing what I loved then, today, and still have the passion for what I do now. Both as an artist, DJ and record label guy. It feels great to have made music 20 years ago that people are still playing, and to compose music now, which people are currently playing!”
“Staying true to my musical tastes is most important to me. When I’m DJing, it’s understanding my role to balance ‘educating’ a crowd and ‘entertaining’ an audience”.
“I try and focus my time and energy on other things than debating if things are better or worse They are the way they are.”
“I got into this because it was something that I lived and ate and breathed here was so much passion for the music, there was nothing else for me”
I’m lost with who is new and who isn’t. Great music is great music, regardless of they’re new or old!
