Josh Wink - Selecta
Legendary Philadelphia-born producer, Josh Wink, has unveiled his latest afterhours weapon, ‘Selecta’,a deep and high powered record released via his very own Ovum Recordings. Scattered with rasping chords, and a thumping break, the atmospheric track follows Josh’s 2017 politically charged ‘Resist’ EP.
A seminal producer, whose burgeoning career stretches all the way back to the 80’s, Josh Wink has proved himself as the King of longevity, producing a wide varied range of tracks over the years, including underground and chart-topping club hits like “Don’t Laugh”, “Higher State of Consciousness” and “I’m Ready”.
Released on Ovum Recordings, the label has released a diverse selection of music over the years, including some of the first releases for Loco Dice (‘Menina Brasileira’), KINK (‘Rachel EP’) and Davide Squillace (“Muteki”) EP as well as releases from DJ Dozia, David Alvarado, Steve Bug, Levon Vincent, Chymera, Shlomi Aber, Sylk130, D'Julz, Harry Romero, Technasia, Tom Middleton, Ian Pooley & Spencer Parker and many more.
“I got into this because it was something that I lived and ate and breathed,” Wink says. “There was so much passion for the music, there was nothing else for me. Whatever notoriety and success had come from this, it’s kind of a mistake, a by product, and I never planned for that. I never knew I could make a living from doing what I loved when I was a teenager; my parents thought it was a fad, actually.”
Josh Wink continues to cement his place among the upper echelons of dance music’s finest, and most timeless, producers, with ‘Selecta’ out now. The track precedes his busy 2018 touring schedule, which includes sets at fabric London, Knee Deep in Sound Barcelona, and Amnesia Ibiza’s ‘Music On’.
