Acid techno pioneer Josh Wink and Poker Flat boss Steve Bug are teaming up to show off their label wares at the Miami WMC this year.
Wink and Bug might seem like unlikely bedfellows, but the two have tangoed on dancefloors before: Bug released 'Houze/Summer Nights' and remixed Wink's '516 Acid' on the Philly stable in 2004, while last year Wink made his debut on the Hamburg imprint with 'Thick as Thieves'.
For the joint showdown, both labels have called in their biggest recruits. Shlomi Aber, the young Israeli behind the jittery synths on last year's ubiquitous 'Freakside', joins Wink for a rare DJ set while Bug is bringing along two of the label's star DJ weapons in Martin Landsky and Argy.
To get you in the mood, both labels are giving RA readers a free MP3 for download. Hit the link below to grab Steve Bug's rethink of Raudive's 'Needle'. Meanwhile Ovum are giving away 'Papa Dee', the B-side to 'The Underground Bullshit' from their other Israeli star recruit Gel Abril.
