Another You Heard It 'Hear' First section (I really should find a shorter name for this section) thats right, JOSH WINK and Jeff Mills will be apparently/hopefully be heading down under for this years instalment of Sydney's version of the WMC 'We Love Sounds 2009'!
We Love Sounds is one of the leading festivals in Sydney and Australia always bringing a good mixture of artists over multiple genres but in a way the complements each other. For example last year we had Lindstorm Live with Ellen Allien, Marco Carola and Stephan Bozdin in one room while in the other Steve Lawler with Dubfire for the Space Arena (with some of the best lighting I have seen in a while).
NOT like Future Music Festival (although still a good festival in its own right) this Saturday that mixes Bang Gang DJs electro noise with Bozdin's techno intensity...I mean that's just disgusting! As well as putting Sander Kleinberg between Bozdin and Richie Hawtin is just plain stupid! But then again WLS is a festival that is better organised with far better production and finesse than many other festivals in Australia.
Anyway Josh Wink has being a consistently good producer with his Stay Out All Night release last year topping the charts as well as dance floors for quite a few months. Easily one of my more favourable American (who would of thought) producers with that twisted techno/house sound akin to current world favourite Dubfire but not necessarily as intense. Im guessing if he does come down it will also be to promote his new album When a Banana is just a Banana which I must get a hold of a review for you guys.
Anyway I'll leave with more info on the We Love Sounds Festival with Armin Van Burren playing a speical set at the Sydney leg of the festival as well as James Zabiela, Jeff Mills (hopefully) and Armand Van Helden making appreances.
