Noise Complaint ft. Josh Wink + Two Nice Anniv w/Roska!
February 14, 2020 @ 2:00 PM - 7:00 PM
Noise Complaint, Two Nice, and the Kremwerk/Timbre Room Complex are proud to present, two rooms of thoughtfully curated music featuring:
“Some people get pigeonholed as being into just one thing’, Wink remarks, ‘I hate that. When there are rules, it doesn’t become art, and it’s not fun. I’ve learned that you can’t please everybody, so I’d rather be concerned with making good art, and the people that like this art will stick with you.”
Philadelphia born and based Josh Wink is one of the true pioneers of techno, house and allied styles – blurring the definitions.
At 13, a young Josh Wink began his first job as an apprentice at Captain Jack’s mobile DJ Company, three years later, he had started to DJ at local house parties. By 1988 – the year that ‘rave’ exploded into public consciousness – Wink was already a main player on the underground music scene.
“Then I began to realize that I had ideas of songs. Instead of DJing other people’s music, I wanted to translate these ideas into my own music that was in my head. House music and new wave electronic music really influenced me when I was a teenager. Plus, going to see Jazzy Jeff and Cash Money DJ in Philly made me want to get more into the ‘art’ of DJing.”
In 1990, just out of his teens, Wink released his first EP ‘Tribal Confusion’ on the infamous Strictly Rhythm imprint, under the moniker E-Culture (with King Britt), also releasing other EPs under various different guises.
Josh Wink’s Ovum imprint, since its beginnings in 1994, has seen releases from Loco Dice, Shlomi Aber, Marc Romboy, DJ Pierre, Aaron Carl, King Britt, Steve Bug, D’Julz and of course his own productions. It still continues to grow by both introducing new talents and releasing one-offs from some of the world’s best known producers. “Ovum is about integrity to good music! We feel that we don’t have to follow the music that is trendy or fad-like at the moment.”
As a DJ, since his 1988 ‘rave’ beginnings, Josh Wink extensively traveled the globe since 1995 – playing every festival that counts, through to the smallest and underground venues around the globe. “The Best DJ experience is being able to create an audio atmosphere where an audience can absorb from me, while I get absorbed from them.” His only residency in the world is held in his hometown of Philadelphia at Fluid.
Taking trends, making trends and breaking trends, Josh Wink’s music (under its many monikers including Wink, Winc, Winks, Winx, The Crusher, E-Culture, and Size 9, Accent, Dinky Dog, J Dawg and The Crusher) has always experimented and influenced. The sound of Josh Wink today remains one of a man unafraid to walk the border between stylistic boundaries.

🔇 ABOUT NOISE COMPLAINT 🔇
Gone is the party where the music and the people at the party mattered more than making money. As Electronic Dance Music has exploded in popularity over the last several years, so have crowds and ticket prices along with it. In the beginning, events were held in underground, often intimate venues. It was about the music, and it was about each other.
Noise Complaint is taking it back to its roots, bringing the people quality, dance floor focused house and techno all while pushing that party-don’t-stop vibe that everyone loves. We’re bringing in huge talent – DJs and producers that are well known and respected but that we also personally vibe with. We’re doing this at a small price, and in an intimate space. It’s about the music for us, it’s about the party and the vibe and the memories and friends you will make. Every Noise Complaint should be the best party you’ve been to since well, the last Noise Complaint.
We’re more than just a party, we’re a movement.
Join us 2nd Fridays at Kremwerk and become part of the family.
