JOSH WINK (Ovum Records, PA)


Josh Wink has always run ahead of the pack, as a DJ, label owner, producer, remixer, and artist. With the release of Profound Sounds Vol. 2, Wink continues to forge ahead, challenging established conventions of what a mix CD should be, not only by remaining true to his mercurial aesthetic as a DJ, but also taking advantage of technology to fine-tune his selections into the best possible recorded representation of Josh Wink. "I'm not one for holding people to one specific genre; I love being on the median in between." says Wink. But making Profound Sounds Vol. 2 didn't just begin and end with picking the tracks and sequencing them in a suitable order. After that step, he tailored every cut to meet his specific requirements for this mix. "Every track is re-edited as a Josh Wink re-edit. I don't end up compromising the integrity of the original art, I just altered it to fit my contour." Only after customizing each song was he ready to record the final version of the set. "In a sense, I did the mix twice," he observes. The new disc even includes a rare interview with the Winkster himself. Diehard Wink fans expect nothing less from this artist, who has been breaking new ground for the past two decades. In the late 1980s and early '90s, when most of the U.S. was just waking up to rave culture, Wink was already making his own tracks ("Tribal Confusion" by E-Culture, with his former partner King Britt) and hauling his records around the country to spin at parties. In 1995, Wink became one of the first DJ-producers to translate his hard work into mainstream success, when he unleashed a string of classics, including "Don't Laugh," "I'm Ready," and "Higher State of Consciousness," that topped charts worldwide, and made him a bona fide pop star in Europe. On his 1998 album, HereHear, Wink pushed boundaries even further, inviting fellow artists as diverse as Trent Reznor (Nine Inch Nails), Caroline Crawley (Shelleyann Orphan/This Mortal Coil), and Philly poet-performer Ursula Rucker (Jazzanova, The Roots), to contribute to a far-reaching disc that ran the gamut of electronic music styles, from ambient and trip-hop to drum & bass, as well as the trademark mix of house and techno on which Wink has built his international reputation.Some of his newer anthems are "How's your evening so far" and most recently "Superfreak", both of which continue his tradition of making distinct music that catches people's ears and inspires others to compose their own music. He recently remixed "Blue Jeans" for Ladytron, Paul Oakenfold's "Starry Eyed Surprise," and Depeche Mode's "Free Love." and is also working with G Love and Special Sauce. If you missed him @ Alive in 1999 or Aww Yeah in 2001 don't sleep on this rare area appearance! One the true east coast legends and a professor of the house/techno sound to the extreme we will be very honored by his presence as he absorbs you all and turns the party out once more! 2:30-4:00AM

RICHARD "HUMPTY" VISSION (www.richardhumptyvission.com, LA)

Electrifying audiences everywhere with his rapid fire, non-stop audio assaults for over a decade; this world-renowned producer, DJ and Grammy-nominated remixer, it only takes one Vission-ary experience to see why Pete Tong calls RHV one of the most incredible DJs in the world. Numerous compilations, tours, remixes and original productions made Richard an international sensation almost overnight. Producing an endless onslaught of chart-topping remixes for artists like Nelly Furtado, Destiny's Child, and Crystal Waters, Richard's presence at the top of the charts has been a familiar one over the past ten years. Entrenched in the scene as an underground icon, Richard soon found himself appearing on MTV. Of course, Richard performing on stage alongside Madonna at the 2001 Grammy Awards continues to stand out. With his hi-profile remixes of Madonna's Don't Tell Me and Music singles earning Richard a Grammy nomination as Remixer of the Year, Madonna herself requested that Richard perform alongside her to kick-start the nationally televised Grammy ceremony in true underground style. Eager to get in the studio and focus more on original productions, Richard will complete a full-on album before the year is out. I have dedicated my life to the pursuit of dance music, Richard explains. And my only goal for the future is to create music that will touch someone's soul and make their ass shake! Making a rare Asylum appearance get ready to go off for the RHV! 1:00-2:30AM

ROC RAIDA (1995 World DMC Champion, The X-Ecutioners, NY)

Roc Raida started Dee jaying in 1992 at the age of 10. The combination of his determination and the insparation he drew from being around hip hop originators like Grand Master Flash led him down a path of absolute passion for the art of the turntables. Some of his early winnings included: "As One" 1991 1st Place, "Supermen Battle" 1991 2nd Place and DMC US Finals 1992 2nd Place. Roc Raida's quest culminated in the 1994 / 1995 DMC World Championship in London where he was crowned as 1995 DMC World Champion. After becoming the world champ, Raida found himself traveling to places like Turkey, Singapore, the UK, Japan, Switzerland, Australia, Germany, and even Lebanon to exhibit his skills. This past year while attending a DJ panel at Cleveland's Rock-N-Roll hall of fame, Roc Raida was christened a Grand Master by some of Hip Hop's founding fathers. He has been on Queen Latifah's TV show, Saturday Night Life, and Russell Simmons "One World". In addition to DJing, Raida has become a successful producer - coming up with buttery tracks for The E-Bros, The Jungle Brothers, Leftfield and Macy Gray (Still). Roc Raida is one of the founders of the X-Men DJ Crew and one of the four pillars of strength that makes up the X-ecutioners. With an album "X-pressions" (Asphodel Records) and another album 'Built From Scratch" released fall of 2000, Roc Raida and the X-ecutioners hope to raise the importance of their craft to a new level. 2:30-4:00AM
