Josh WinkJames Baldwin once wrote, “Be careful what you set your heart upon, for it will surely be yours. Embracing a diligent work ethic, a spiritual mindset & a self-taught mastery of dancefloor devastation using little more than a pair of turntables, Josh Wink has worked hard since 1990 to become one of the world’s most in demand purveyors of experimental, electronic, danceable music.

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 – where Josh took a minimal techno beat and looped an incessant sample of a whacko laughing his head off. It was a stroke of sheer genius. The single broke down international language barriers and 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.
