first he had us in denial. then he made us an offer we couldnt resist. now hes fixing our focus on the most crucial player in this whole house caper: the selecta. come again? selecta is yet another crystalline acid body workout from the ovum boss whos been dishing out single sinewy shell-outs in a seriously rich vein of form of late. galvanised by heavily swung drums, loaded and coded with a venom-like funk and characterised by a big soundsystem vocal that tears out of nowhere and disappears just as quickly, its yet another unique piece of 303 witchcraft, the likes of which only wink can conjure. deeply groovy, unabashed darkness and just a nuance of mischief with the vocal, its yet another precision piece from mr wink whos also kindly provided an instrumental for your added creative pleasure. selectors, this ones for you. you know what to do…
a heavyweight classic! don t laugh is one of those records, you know you ve heard it, you may not who, what or where, but you know it! the original winx mix is a classic, often imitated, never bettered, but the real gem here is richie hawtin s manic, almost borderline sinister 15+ minute reworking. monster doesn t do it justice, tweaked out, narcotic, minimalist jacking gear. a dope combination of severe low end and some bracing sine waves that cut straight through. this one will surely test any club sound-system, if the venue is built for it you will know! this is one for the real heads, pure late night business oft overlooked for the more famous a-side, but trust us - hawtin s mix will smash any dance! oh, and there s an insane laughing acappella for those who want to mix and blend! reissued, remastered and re-sorted for 2017
2017 repress -- commencing ovums 20th birthday celebrations, josh wink digs into the vaults for a very special piece of the labels history, presenting three perfect reinterpretations of winks hyperkinetic acid techno classic are you there.
wink returns to the ovum motherland after a year of big hitters on intec, boysnoize and r&s. and he’s packing some serious substance. the clue is in the title, the message is in the hypnotic signature vocal loop, the attitude is in the spiked-out sinewy tendrils of acid, sharped in the way only josh knows how: ‘resist’ is the sound a man who, like all of us, is confounded and frustrated with the current political and media climate. tension, fear and adrenalin ripple throughout as we dynamically ride the tangible, visceral highs and lows in a quintessential classic wink way. remix-wise truncate forges through the blurred truths, manipulation and divisiveness with two clear dancefloor tactics: a thundering, roughly-hewn late night techno roll-out and a deeper, leaner approach for slightly earlier hours with a rising siren that acts as a call to arms for like minds to unify. truncate isn’t alone with the multiple versions: in echoes of some of his most influential tracks ‘superfreak’ and ‘don’t laugh’, josh has also provided two stripped-back acapella-style tracks to ensure the critical message is entwined beyond the track itself. and that message is clear: exist to resist. you know what to do. - josh wink is on a roll following last recent big tracks on boys noize, cocoon, soma, and of course ovum. - dj support from chris liebing, scuba, len faki, slam, jamie jones, john digweed, and more. radio support from eats everything (radio 1), b traits (radio 1), coco cole (capital 1xtra).

when we say live in the future it becomes a repudiation of living in the present, and then instantly we are in a state of denial denial has a hypnotic effect on the mind. gutsy 909 claps work with percussion and futurist vocal snippets that warp and chop, whilst haunting chords wrap themselves and sublimate over the body. denial wants you to live in the future, denying the present moment. yet the music speaks in the present. to close your eyes, find yourself lose yourself in the moment and groove.

>was originally called <319 acid<, similar to 516 acid , but it was called 319 as i started this on march 19th 2007. after playing around with ideas, and effects, i had created a panning motion in the track which when listened to in headphones travels in a >counter clock< wise fashion. i was listening to a set of (dj) dixon and noticed how slow and groovy most of the set was, which influenced me to make a twisted, intense track that was in the same tempo range.< josh wink ! chirs liebing comes on board for the remix and keeps a lot of the key elements, but delivers a more in your face version

since it’s inception in 1991 on the streets of glasgow, soma records has stood for uncompromising quality of the highest level in every area it operates. stuart mcmillan & orde meikle formed slam during the acid house explosion in the late 80’s and then together with friends glenn gibbons & dave clarke they forged one of electronic music’s most widely known and well respected labels. with mcmillan & meikle as the figureheads with their slam project and influenced by the early detroit techno scene, soma quickly began to develop it’s own sound and with their eyes firmly fixed on a vision of the future, the team began the quest to instill their unquenchable thirst for electronic music into the world around them. soma quickly became an international brand as slam’s anthemic “positive education” brought about an electronic renaissance that saw the group thrust into the limelight and green lit the furious rise of the label.
