A partnership of epic proportions is about to go down. Josh Wink, an artist known for crafting some of the finest house and techno tracks of all time is joining forces with Boysnoize Records, leader on the global scene for over a decade. Tying your techno in knots, Josh Wink’s “Shoelaces EP” is set for release on August 12th.
Josh Wink is a master at Acid Techno (Just listen to classics like “Don’t Laugh” and “Lumpy Oatmeal”) so he’s right in his wheelhouse on the Acid Mix of “Shoelaces.” Throbbing electro rhythms and those signature acid squelches define this mix, with the notch turned up another degree on the circuit board for the Dub Mix.The package follows with a cut from Finnish producer Mono Junk, who offers a more stripped down take on “Shoelaces.” Mono Junk’s remix is raw yet no less in tense, providing the EP with its dark corner. Out of the cultural hive of Los Angeles follows Truncate. For the all out banging, hammering techno fans, Truncate’s mix is a winning bet. Peak time, over the edge and bathed in acid.
“I’m happy with ‘Shoelaces” being released on Boysnoize Records as it’s a rarity that I release on other labels outside of my own label Ovum Recordings. I’m a fan of both the label and Alex Boys Noize, so I am excited to be a part of the greatly diverse and talented BNR family”. -Josh Wink
“It’s a big honor to release Josh Wink’s new record on BNR. Needles to say there are so many club bombs he’s made and he’s been a big influence for me as a DJ & Producer. With “Shoelaces“ Josh is showing us his love for 303 acid & breaks, it’s a raw fun and very effective record, the perfect fit for BNR“. -Boys Noize
