There’s a lot to be said about our first featured headliner, KiNK. Whether it be his unique, energy-filled performances on his ever-changing hybrid set up, his ingenious production methods or his actual varied and deeply original footprint on the house and techno sound.
So, as far as I’m aware from videos on his Facebook page, KiNK lives in some sort of Wonka type paradise in Sofia
that’s crammed with every type of drum machine and sampler a producer can imagine.
In my experience bar a few exceptions, gear hoarding like that often comes paired with an interesting and varied back catalogue.
Now, KiNK’s musical history dates to 2006 and almost everything he’s done stands out as absolute quality, so one’s perspective in what stands out as a highlight in his back catalogue may be different to someone else’s.

Handmade (Featuring Rachel Row)
Kink’s maiden outing on Amsterdam’s hallowed imprint,Rush Hour has a very organic feel to it that compliments that label so perfectly and there’s a very good reason why in an incredible ‘making of’ video

Existence
See, this is a signature KiNK sound. Absolute piano screamers for the floor.
Taken from the b side of his ‘Rachel’ E.P on Josh Wink’s acclaimed ‘Ovum’ label in 2010, it seems to pave the way for many of the future work outs for the man.

Rave Signal
Rave Signal smashed into clubs around 2012 with it’s fire alarm square wave stabs and break cut up that seem to be lifted right from an Altern8 record. KiNK shows off off his love for jungle and proto-hardcore sounds that continue to weave through his musical DNA.

Unit 2 – Sunshine (KiNK Remix)
The 1992 Underground Resistance classic got a huge 2017 remake ahead of the reissue on Running Back

Chorus
This melodic charger keeps building and building. There’s nothing not to love about it.

Valentines Groove
This low down Rhodesy work out on Clone’s Royal Oak sublabel takes KiNK on a deviation from much of his body of work, some might say this has an echo of Motor City Drum Ensemble, but it’s just another string to his bow.

Perth
This 90s house flavour is simple yet so addictive, as is the case with many of KiNK’s work.
