Josh Wink’s iconic reputation is preceded only by his prolific career, as one marked with longevity and fruition. He is an alchemist of music, churning out beats whilst keeping new and old fans alike anticipating the yield of his ever-adapting musical harvest.
Wink’s latest track “Full Late Night” was just released by Ovum Recordings, and is now available for free download. This minimalist track consists of metallic raindrops echoing through a deep chasm of distant, airy synth leads. It embodies its own listeners with soft drums pattering like the rhythmic heartbeats of Wink’s crowds in the early hours of his classic warehouse romps.
“Full Late Night” was originally recorded in 2003, but was ultimately omitted from Wink’s “20 to 20” project at that time since he felt it didn’t fit the vibe. So it was locked away, aging for over a decade. Now, it has now become an artifact of a former time, re-emerging with nostalgia and intrigue.
Wink vigilantly strained the distinction between contemporary and antiquated by releasing this track into the modern wild. After sharing it with several DJ friends, “Full Late Night” was swooped up by colleague Ben Klock, who then featured it on his Essential Mix for BBC Radio 1, which went on to win 2015’s Mix of the Year.
Despite its delicate air of pulsating listlessness, “Full Late Night” will take on the role of its moniker and hearten many robust late-night sets to come.
