Josh Wink returns to his own Ovum Recordings for new single 'Balls Back', which comes with a remix from Marco Faraone. Philly-born DJ/producer and the man behind various techno cuts, Josh possibly remains as prominent now as he did a quarter of a century ago.
Josh Wink: “Every time I play this people rush over asking 'what is this track that says “get your balls back”?' Its reaction after playing has been amazing and reassuring that it hits hard, works on the floor, and sticks in people's heads.“
