Josh and Jimpster first became acquainted when Jamie was asked by Josh to remix a track from his 2009 LP “When A Banana Was Just a Banana”, and the favor was retuned when Josh remixed Jimpster’s “Alsace and Lorraine” in 2011. The pair have stayed in touch since, which brings us to now, and we’re excited to present you with a full signature sounding Wink EP made with Freerange in mind, right in time for the summer.
“Autonomic Journeys” leads the charge with a track which hits that sweet spot between pumping Detroit techno, deep house atmospherics and twisted acid. 909 drums, 303 squelch and 106 pads ensure Roland is well represented in the track and all underpinned by a fat rolling bassline.
“Pan Gloss” gives us a chunky slice of bouncy percussive house which exudes a positive energy as it unfolds over 7 minutes. Fat stabs sit front and centre while chiming arpeggios and acid line dance around the beat making for a track which makes you move as much as get lost in.
Closing out the release things go deeper on “San Guine”, with a snappy groove laying the foundation for lush sine stabs, filtering pads and a hooky cross-rhythm analogue synth line.
STAFF COMMENTSMatt says: Josh Wink applies his long-running formula to the terrace-friendly Freerange label with rather impressive results. Three tracks of highly wriggly house music that will go down a storm in Ibiza.
A1. Autonomic Journeys
