Josh Wink unveils Ovum 25th anniversary compilation


Josh Wink’s Ovum Recordings imprint has launched a 25-track compilation, one release for each year, to mark the label’s 25th anniversary available via Bandcamp.

The imprint’s 303rd release, a number significant due to the Roland TB-303 synthesiser that was used to make so many of Josh and Ovum’s acid tracks, OVUM 303 sees the re-release of one release from each year of the label’s existence. It includes music from KiNKNic FanciulliLoco DiceJosh himself and many more. 

Josh explains: “As 2019 nears its end, I’ve spent a lot of time reflecting on what the past 25 years of my career have meant to me. My label, my fans, my city, and everyone in between have all played an important role in this ride. Every day that I get up and do what I love is a gift, and you all have given me a lifetime supply. After 25 years of Liquid Summers and Autumn Dayz, I think It’s time to return the favour in a different way, in the spirit of the Thanksgiving holiday.

Some of you have noticed we skipped the sequential catalogue numbered release of Ovum 303 last year. It was not an accident! I wanted this release and Ovum 25 to come together as a celebration of all of you reading this: the concert goers, musicians, friends, and free spirits that continue to push this scene forward.

So before we go into a new decade, I hope you’ll take some time with me to reminisce. Below, you can find a free download link to Ovum 303; 25 records for the 25 years of Ovum Recordings, with a pay what you want option. All funds you contribute will go directly to @ThePhillyPops in Schools, a program that enhances music education in Philadelphia by providing coaches and mentors to students. 

Let’s invest the next generation of musicians together. Here’s to 25 more”.

Grahame Farmer

Grahame Farmer’s love affair with electronic music goes back to the mid-90s when he first began to venture into the UK’s beloved rave culture, finding himself interlaced with some of the country’s most seminal club spaces. A trip to dance music’s anointed holy ground of Ibiza in 1997 then cemented his sense of purpose and laid the foundations for what was to come over the next few decades of his marriage to the music industry.
