V/A - Fifteen For Fifteen (Ovum)


Josh Wink started the Philly based Ovum imprint back in 1994 with his then musical sidekick King Britt. Since then, the electronic music world has changed somewhat, but Ovum has remained a constant. Wink’s monstrous Higher State Of Consciousness record brought him worldwide exposure and major label deals, whilst Ovum became home to a range of artists. Josh Wink took full control of the label in more recent times, even releasing his own LPs via the imprint. This compilation is a testament to Wink’s ability as an A&R man. It features brilliant deep and techy grooves of the maximal and more minimal variety from old and new school heroes. A trio of winners are D’julz’s bassy Just So U Know, Jimpster’s magical take on Josh Wink’s Jus Right and Loco Dice’s bewitching LB7475. This compilation of timeless techy grooves shows the strength of Ovum’s back catalogue and more recent signings.
