Having helped shape the modern electronic music scene in the US, Josh Wink needs little introduction. As well as playing a crucial part in spreading the rave and acid house message throughout North America in the nineties, Wink also came to inadvertently demonstrate the crossover appeal of dance music, proving that it could indeed filter successfully into the mainstream, partly due to the now anthemic ‘Higher State of Consciousness’.
Here, he provides a mix never before been aired in the UK. And as you’d expect, it’s a good’un.
Beginning with a series of deep, hypnotic house grooves – including a superb atmospheric opener by Blagger – Wink’s mix slowly builds, before an entirely welcome acid hit kicks in at 15 minutes, via Wink’s own ‘How High Acid’ track.
All of which proves what has long been suspected: that Wink has a profound understanding of the music he makes and the wider scenes into which it falls. Classy, mesmerising stuff.
