Ambivalent & Michael L Penman
Shimmer EP




Having found a very fruitful collaborative friendship, Michael L Penman and Ambivalent (aka Kevin McHugh) have begun exploring the intersection of their approaches to music-making.

For their Ovum debut the duo have delivered a trio of tracks that have those three elements at their core. Title track Shimmer brings together raw jackin’ funk with a warm driving bassline and scything techy stabs whilst Chevalier matches its fun bouncy groove with an infectious and spritely melody. Final track Memogram comes heavy with the oldskool, delivering a bed of beats and samples across the very heaviest of acid-kicks.  Not for the feint of heart!

HUGE SUPPORT FROM Richie Hawtin, Adam Beyer, Josh Wink, HUXLEY, Satoshie Tomie, Doc Martin, Luca Bacchetti, Anja Schneider, Nicole Moudaber, Marc Romboy, Carlo Lio, Uner, Andrew Grant, Stephan Bodzin, Gary Beck, Karotte, Gregor Tresher, Michel De Hey, Steve Parker, Kenny Larkin, Monika Cruise, Danny Howells and more!!!

Eight years since his last Ovum EP release and David Alvarado is back with the Land Of The Sunchild EP on Ovum. Thu, 11 Jul 2013 16:18:00 +0000 OVM230American born and Los Angeles bred DJ, producer, and artist David Alvarado continues a career that has spanned over 15 years, and is still considered to be one of electronic music’s best kept secrets. He is best known for his work on some of the worlds most respected imprints such as Ovum, Ultra, Peacefrog, Yoshitoshi, Plastic City, Strictly Rhythm, and Guidance, along with his early work on his own label Bomb Records.

David began his career as a DJ running a renegade sound system and deejaying underground parties around the Los Angeles area. He quickly made an impact on the American electronic music scene with his unique style and signature music selection. His work as a producer and artist began to take root after a chance meeting with the legendary Plus 8 duo, Richie Hawtin and John Acquaviva, who stumbled across one of his very first works and invited him to be a part of their newly formed Definitive Records. From there David forged relationships, and created a body of work that would take him around the world, opening the door to performances at legendary clubs and events such as The Ministry of Sound, The Hacienda, E-Werk, Tresor, Florida 135, Row Club, Panorama Bar, The Arches, Extrema Festival, Sonar.

David returns to Ovum after a 8 year hiatus from releasing on the label. His “Klugh” release still is regarded as one of the seminal tracks on the label and is still played today. David returns with a two track techno workout that should rock any dance-floor.

Alix Alvarez – Elixr EP Mon, 08 Apr 2013 20:09:15 +0000
OVUM_228Jacket_DigitalAlix Alvarez – Elixr EP 1) No Loss 2) BDRK 3) Champion Sound 4) Treat Me


Available Digitally at Beatport:



Is it any wonder that Alix Alvarez’s music is held in such when we consider that the New Yorker learnt his trade under the watchful eyes and ears of many of house musics true visionaries. During his youth his home city was the heartbeat of house music and having ignited an interest in production he signed up to the Institue of Audio Research. Upon graduating he was given the amazing opportunity to work as an assitant sound engineer at the legendary MAW Studios. Alix took the opportunity to the fullest, learning his trade from the great Little Louie Vega and Kenny Dope Gonzales and befriending further mentors including Sandy Rivera and Osunlade. At MAW Studios Alix also met Mr. V and things really started to take off and the combination lead to his first club hit, 2007s Da Bump.  Alixs debut on Ovum has been a process that goes back well over a year.  Being fans of his production we reached out to him for a remix of Shlomi Abers NY Dreamer.  The result was a multi week stint at the top of the Beatport Deep House Sales chart and incredible support from his peers.  Since that time Alix has been working on his debut release for Ovum, the Elixr EP.  This release shows the diveristy of Alixs amazing production skills and the end result is a spectacular four tracker that effortlessly glides us from the beautiful deep and warm vibes of No Loss to the jittery vocal skills of  Treat Me, via the analog gem BDRK and Josh Wink favourite Champion Sound. Debuts dont get much better.

OVM-227 Ian Pooley & Spencer Parker “Thirty Six” EP is out now exclusively at Beatport Wed, 20 Feb 2013 21:20:08 +0000

OVUM_227Jacket“Thirty Six” EP is out now exclusively at Beatport
Since meeting in Berlin a few years ago, Spencer Parker and Ian Pooley have enjoyed long and prolific music careers both individually and as a duo, with past releases on Tsuba, Rekids, Cabin Fever and Plus 8 to name a few. Hitting the ground running in 2013, they return for another helping of underground house on Josh Wink’s Ovum imprint, following up from 2010’s Kinderteller EP.

Upon hearing the first two and a half minutes of Lerchen und Eulen you could be forgiven for thinking you were in for a potentially punishing workout. A relentless bass line undulates below 808 claps and ride cymbals, which in turn sit alongside a singular chord sequence that serve to lure the listener in. Then out of nowhere, they’re caught off guard with a secondary hook, creating a call-and-response pattern that somehow recontextualizes the entire song as a soulful beach-party groover, reinforced further by effervescent arpeggios and latin percussion.

“In My Head” itself is a masterful lesson in stripped-back, minimalist aesthetics. Pulsing synths dance around a driving, hypnotic drum-groove, with carefully controlled hi-hat volleys and skittering percussion underpinned by throbbing sub-weight. Mysterious androgynous vocal snippets drift in and out of the mix, swelling and morphing over the chugging bassline stabs that push the song ever forward. This, quite simply, is unadulterated; ‘lose-yourself-at-four-in-the-morning’ dance floor bliss, engineered with the guttural precision of two techno producers comfortably sitting at the top of their game.

Lerchen und Eulen (Radio Slave Remix) is a weird and wonderful trip, with a crisp, solid drum pattern being about the only element of the song, which manages to retain some sense of normalcy. Elsewhere, distant, spaced-out pads orbit around an unintelligible vocal sample, which positively drips with audio effects, to the extent that it appears to be bending its way through time and space itself. The mix is fleshed out with further unidentifiable sonic artifacts and eerie filtered strings, and the reversed chords in the breakdown only add to the off-kilter weirdness. They bring a strange warmth to the proceedings, before the hefty kick-drum/sub-bass combo punches back into the mix and the journey begins once more. Masterful stuff.

Joris Voorn – “In My Head is a great track! Also loving the Radio Slave mix here too! Very nice!”

Psycatron – “Love all three tracks but really REALLY love the Radio Slave mix, it’s Panorama Bar 10am vibes written all over it.”

D’Julz – “This is a great follow up release from Ian and Spencer!! I’ll be playing In My Head a lot!”

Till von Sein – “Oh man, played the shit outta that Kinderteller joint… even had to force myself to take the cd outta the bag, otherwise I guess I would still drop it on the reg.. Lerchen and Eulen sounds like its the perfect follow up J… anthem alert…!”
