"wonky" (noun) [wong-kee] ~ Crazy, loony, not quite right. a mix of bonkers and whacky or to be completely wasted, inebriated, shitfaced and very, very wobbly. "To Wonk" (verb) [wong-k] ~ To be all of the above at once. This compilation encapsulates the whole spectrum of the full-on morning psytrance sound; from first light twisters to late morning bliss, with no eurotrance key changes or cheesy melodies. It is structured to take the listener on a journey from start to finish, as well as providing DJ material to rip up any dancefloor. It mixes established international artists with the cream of new UK talent. Kicking off with Hemi-Sync, one half of Flip Flop, it’s funky and intricate and will definitely get your booty swinging. Tron is next up with a stone cold groove that draws you in and doesn’t let you go until it’s done, weaving in a bit of America’s Greatest Prophet for good measure. Rastaliens ramp up the tempo with a track that cranks up the tension before letting fly with an explosive final third. Next up is Touch Tone, the other half of Flip Flop, this track kicks harder than a Chuck Norris roundhouse. Which it should do, because Chuck was the inspiration for this, and you can’t go wrong with that! Beatnik, who has already had releases on Nano and Liquid Records, takes it on with a track that cleverly builds and builds, layering sounds on top of each other until it’s brain-twisting peak. Braincell then produces an absolute stomper; famous samples are given fresh life and a spine-tingling breakdown and final run. Fractal Glider pops up with an epic, powerful, morning track with a stupidly large bassline and sublime melodies, it won’t fail to get you moving. A classic Zen Mechanics track is then given the Flip Flop treatment, these guys are fast gaining a great reputation, having already played the main stage at major festivals, they have also just signed to Alchemy Records. They make this track their own while still retaining all the qualities of the original. Fromem_Ory learnt his craft at the infamous UK forest parties and this track oozes that atmosphere; the first sunbeams of the day coming through the trees, dust in the air and the smell of the woods; and it brings all this right into any club or living room. Last, but by no means least, come UK pioneers, OOOD, finishing the journey in sublime fashion. Hot on the heels of their critically acclaimed album “Free Range”, they give us a track that lives up to it’s name, it’s bouncy, floaty and downright beautiful, with an old school vibe, that will take you to far off places, with a massive smile on your face. To top it all off, it’s been mastered by the legend that is Tim Shuldt. Wherever you listen to it, it’s 79 minutes of tunes that are guaranteed to get your wonk on! Or in the immortal words of Henry ‘Mad Ron’ Seligman: “It is the first truly bang bang lezzer disco CD I've heard in bloody ages.” (John ‘00’ Fleming was unavailable to comment). I know i'm completely the wrong person to say this... but this one has has got me more excited than a blind lesbian in a fish factory Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
