All proceeds go towards a school music program in Philadelphia.
The Bandcamp collection contains 25 records from the label's past, totaling 68 tracks in all. It includes classic Wink records like "Liquid Summer" and "Are You There," plus releases from DJ Sneak, David Alvarado, KiNK and more. Check out the full tracklist at Bandcamp.
The release is pay-what-you-want, and all proceeds go towards the Philly Pops school program, which embeds teachers from the orchestra into Philadelphia-area schools, providing education for 2500 students.
Wink explained his thinking behind the release in a lengthy Instagram post.

As 2019 nears its end, I’ve spent a lot of time reflecting on what the past 25 years of my career have meant to me. My label, my fans, my city, and everyone in between have all played an important role in this ride. Every day that I get up and do what I love is a gift, and you all have given me a lifetime supply. After 25 years of Liquid Summers and Autumn Dayz, I think It’s time to return the favor in a different way, in the spirit of the Thanksgiving holiday. Some of you have noticed we skipped the sequential catalog numbered release of Ovum 303 last year. It was not an accident! I wanted this release and Ovum 25 to come together as a celebration of all of you reading this: the concert goers, musicians, friends, and free spirits that continue to push this scene forward. So before we go into a new decade, I hope you’ll take some time with me to reminisce. Below, you can find a free download link to Ovum 303; 25 records for the 25 years of Ovum Recordings, with a pay what you want option. All funds you contribute will go directly to @ThePhillyPops in Schools, a program that enhances music education in Philadelphia by providing coaches and mentors to students. Let’s invest the next generation of musicians together. Here’s to 25 more. Visit the link in my bio to purchase OVM303.
