With a penchant for hypnotically rhythmic percussion loops, DJ/producer Josh Wink can rapidly build up a simple theme into a large, intricate event without missing a single beat. On "Back in tha' Day," Wink ignites an electroacoustic free-for-all before snapping the tune back to ground zero. "I'm on Fire's" electric ambience sets the scene for the whisper-pure female vocals of guest Caroline Crawley. Wink is on the cutting edge when it comes to producing modern dance music, and Herehear is a perfect introduction to the future. --Paul Clark

Drum machine run amuck!

"This disk is not indicative of Josh Wink's later, and more developed, work. If you want to hear him at a much higher level, check out Profound Sounds Vol. 1 and the supremely enjoyable and detailed Profound Sound Vol. 2, which I think is his best studio work. Prof.Sound Vol. 3 is okay, but not as good as Vol. 1 and definately inferior to Vol. 2.
"Hearhear" sounds like he was experimenting with what a drum machine can do. None of the tracks are innovative, or even interesting. Wink live in clubs is something to behold. You won't forget it, but this cd will leave you wondering what all the attention is about. Borrow from a friend."
Still ahead of its time

"As a fan of Josh's minimal house anthems, I purchsed Hearhear when it first came out in 98. At first I was amazed the variety of geners on display: breakbeat, atmospheric drum and base, ambient and of course, classic Josh Wink house. This album is hard edged like steele and challeges the listner. This is not an easy album, its not a trance trip or an IDM head game. Its just one of the best, doing what he does best. On another note, don't use this to judge all that Josh is capable of. To see him live is to drfit through deep goovy house, slip through some jungle and get pounced by minimalist house. He is one of the best DJ's, period. And one of the nicest guys in the industry. To this day (four years after its release) This album is still a year or two ahead of its time."
