Ovum’s favourite artists and friends will celebrate the opening of Sonar week on Wednesday June 13th… In Room 1, long-time friends and collaborators Josh Wink and Steve Bug will go back2back (for many, one of the Miami WMC highlights was their back2back set at Shine), alongside Ovum artists Luca Bacchetti and Alix Alvarex back2back and Axel Boman, whose remix of Agraric Projects ‘No Way I Know I Feel’ was one of Ovum’s highlights of 2011. In Room 2, Wink will open the first hour for a special warm-up set ahead of his main room set later on, followed by Perc live, Max Cooper live, KiNK live and Andre Buljat, completing the tightly packed line-up of electronic talent.
“ Excited to be hosting our 4th Annual Ovum party in Barcelona during Sonar week. It has gained a reputation of being “The” party to attend to welcome in the Sonar festival, which I feel very happy about. We are proud this year to continue this new tradition and present another amazing and diverse Ovum line up from the label: Steve Bug, Gregor Tresher, Luca Bacchetti, Kink, Perc, Axel Boman & Myself! That’s what I’m talking about! I hear a lot of people fly in a day early just to make our party, which makes me happy and I look forward to presenting, representing and having another party go off!” – Josh Wink

We want to thank everyone for all the support at this years Ovum Party at WMC. You were so supportive that they shut us down! To the people who stuck it out, you heard a magical set by Steve Bug. Unfortunately, we had no control over the fire marshal and we want to apologize for everyone who was inconvenienced by the drama. Thank you to M A N I K, Luca Bacchetti, and of course to the maestro Josh Wink for the amazing music! We do this event every year for the love and for the fans and once again we thank you for 16 years of amazing support!
We are delighted to welcome Steve Bug back to Ovum, for the first time since his 2004, ‘Houze EP’. Whether as an artist, label boss or party promoter, Bug has been a major player at the forefront of electronic music since the early ’90’s. This latest EP showcases Bug’s prowess as a producer, presenting three stellar tracks that exemplify tech and deep house at its best. Already thoroughly road-tested by himself and Josh, we are very excited to present to you the As It Was EP.
