Josh Wink, noted for his Ovum label, has been paving innovations in the techno and house world for two decades. His affinity for super rich, deeply resonant sounds has defined him as a undeniably talented household name.

Linking undiscovered sounds with acid laced grooves and hypnotic techno landscapes, Josh Wink’s ceaseless quest for top-notch rhythms and melodies is further punctuated by his phenomenal performance methods.

Check out Josh Wink’s 10 modish and raw selections below and keep an eye out for his upcoming ‘Selecta’ EP release this June.
Talaboman ‘Brutal Chugga Chugga’ (L.B. Dub Corp Remix)
“The Spaniard (Talabot) and Swede (Bowman) released their first collaboration as Talaboman last year and now have come with a great remix package on R&S. Luke Slater, in my opinion, can do no wrong, whichever moniker he choses to create with. This time as deep L.B Dub Corp. and he knocked it out of the park. Deep, sexy retro yet contemporary Chicago influenced house. Class!”
Tora Vinter ‘Morgiana’ (feat. Veraluz)
“This one is soon to be released and has been a stable for setting deep, sexy and eerie moods during my set. Swedish producer Tora Vinter goes minimally deep, creating a groove that makes me want to move my hips and close my eyes with Veraluz serenading us with her stylish vocals.”
“Typically good music from the talented Dutch techno producer. This one has been big for me over the last months. Deep, heady, spacial, sexy techno! A great track for setting moods and transitioning between genres. Love starting sets with this one too! Love getting lost in this one.”
Shadow Child ‘Galactico’
“Released a couple of months ago and has been with me even longer. Raw, jacking acid house! Pure dance floor fire here. I need to say no more.”
Jared Wilson ‘Deepen The Mystery’
“Detroit’s Jared Wilson rocks this release on PostHuman’s I Heart Acid label. This track is relentless in your face, ears and body raw acid! Always guaranteed to have the crowds jackin’, whether it be at a a small club or a big festival… this rocks!”
Brother Nebula ‘A Brief History of Lasers’
“This is a track that stands out in a set. When I play this, usually heads want to know what it is. It’s kind of a modern throw back to the breakbeat/rave sound – pre-UK hardcore with a deep, soulful Detroit influence to it. I love playing and programming it into sets.”
DJ Bone ‘R.I.P Aaron Carl’
“An older track that was never released and now it finally sees the day of light on Detroit’s Subject Detroit records. It’s featured on the talented DJ Bone’s new LP ‘A Piece of Beyond’. I have fortunately been rocking it for a couple months. This is an homage to the passing of the sweet, kind and accomplished Aaron Carl who left us too early. Originally floating around as a track by Aaron called ‘Apologize’ (DJ Bone’s Subject Detroit Remix). Gives me chills every time I play, and I’ve been getting a lot of chills.”
FBK ‘To a Place I Know’
“A fun, raw and minimal track that has an infectious groove that keeps bubbling, grooving and moving. It has a funky vocal sample that filters in an out that sets the pace for this tech house marathon track. Love playing this.”
Argy ‘The Numbers’ (DJ Skull Remix)
“Coming off a great remix from Djulz on Bass Culture. Ron Maney (aka DJ Skull) is back. I’ve been a fan of Ron’s since the ’90s, and happy he’s back doing the good stuff! Here he offers a contagious groove from Argy and it’s another groover! Close your eyes and get lost on this hypnotic jackin’ track. It keeps building and pushing and I don’t want it to stop.”
Thatmanmonkz feat. Nikki-O ‘Ooh Wee’ (Hamtramck Mix)
“Groover alert! I love tracks that are so simple yet, you don’t want to stop the groove. This is a sexy, hip-shaker that I immediately fell in love with. Simple and compelling house.”
