Josh Wink

  • Josh Wink has been one of the few artists that has management to perform at the highest levels of electronic music consistently since the early 90's. He has laid down club classics such as "Don't Laugh" and "Higher State of Consciousness". His Ovum imprint now celebrates its 20th anniversary with an impressive back catalogue including releases from King Britt (cofounder), Steve Lawler, Stephan Goldmann, Loco Dice and DJ Sneak. It's with great pleasure that we welcome one of electronic musics finest ambassadors to Opium Rooms on July 24th. Bio In 1990, Josh met up with a kindred spirit, fellow Philly jock, King Britt whose interests also include rap and acid jazz. Pooling their interests and blending their differences, the duo waxed E-culture's "Tribal Confusion" for respected New York based indie label, Strictly Rhythm. The record was a surprising commercial success and established both DJs as artists to watch on the global dance music scene. After forming Ovum Recordings as an independent label in October 1994 with partner King Britt, Josh recorded the cult classic "Liquid Summer". He went on to release singles for a wide variety of revered European labels ranging from Belgium's R & S to England's XL. He also began remixing for Moby and others. 1995 was an especially good year for Josh. He scored 3 consecutive European smashes - all out of his modest 16-track bedroom studio - which unquestionably took dance music to a dizzying plateau. First came "Don't Laugh" - recorded as Winx and issued via Nervous Records. The single eventually sold more than 500,000 units. Invitations to spin at prestigious nightspots all over the world have been pouring in since, but as his career has progressed, he has stayed true to his roots, never selling out and always maintaining his integrity, always coming home to his beloved Philadelphia.
