303 – KiNK
Wow. How time flies. Dancing without prejudice since 2008 we’ve delivered you some of best sets from a combination of the biggest names and most underground talent electronic music has to offer and to celebrate reaching podcast number 303 we have a very special treat for you indeed as KiNK takes the helm.
As we’re sure your aware 303 is one of the most iconic numbers in electronic music due to its inextricable link with Roland’s revolutionary piece of kit with the same name and its contribution to the burgeoning acid house scene. So with that in mind we set about delivering an acid set that both paid homage to that classic squelching 303 laden sound of yesteryear whilst continuing to be innovative. Step forward Kink and boy does the Bulgarian wizard deliver in spades on this epic vinyl journey through the genre all the way through to the cutting edge sounds he and his acid loving cohorts are putting out via their respective outlets.
Clearly a project dear to KiNK’s heart (check out his quotes below) we’re tipping his modern take on Acid to be taking clubs by storm over the warmer months to continue is meteoric rise within the scene long after peoples obsession with the deep house sound begins to fade. Give his work for us a listen for the sound of tomorrow today…
Sum up this podcast in 10 words… This is Data Transmission #303. That number is a synonim of the Acid sound, because of the cult synthesizer Roland t.b. 303. It was logical to put together some Acid tunes, so I did, but you wont hear the 303 synth in each track. Acid is a feeling, not a machine.
What’s your personal favourite track on it?The second track in the mix, Mr Fingers – Beyond the Clouds. Its the less Acidic one in the mix, but I can still feel that special Acid vibe in there
What’s the special ingredient in this mix?Paying respect to the past, while looking at the future.
What’s the best gig you’ve played recently? I’ve been lucky, most of the gigs I did in the last year or more were amazing, it`s hard to chose one. However, recently we played together with Neville Watson at the Garage / Leeds, the vibe was sick and i`m very happy of what we did together with Neville.
What have you got coming up?A heavy tour schedule, a spontaneous collaboration record with Sierra Sam on Upon You, writing new material for my partner Rachel Row and hopefully finishing my album, it`s almost ready, but it took so long because of my permanent travelling and all the different projects i get involved with.
