Crate Digging with Andrew Wowk – October

Our resident crate digger Andrew Wowk digs up a selection of tracks essential for any DJ record box during October

  1. Chris Coco, Luca Averna, & Antonio Prosper – Tropical Express [King Of Kong]

https://kingofkongtryckton.bandcamp.com/album/king-of-kong-interlocal-v-a-2

Lush, deep house grooves with a touch of Balearic euphoria.

  1. Vanity Productions – Hair Painted With Copper [Posh Isolation]

https://vanityproductions-poshisolation.bandcamp.com/track/hair-painted-with-copper

An expansive, melancholy ambient piece that skirts the line between dystopian sound design and warm expansiveness.

  1. Philipp Gorbachev – Sunshine (Vocal Mix) [S108]

https://philippgorbachev.bandcamp.com/album/nichego-ne-ponyal-ep

The Russian experimentalist seamlessly blends techno, dubstep, and IDM in this dusty, bass-heavy stomper.

  1. P4V4N & Hyroglifics – All On Black [4NC¥]

https://pav4n.bandcamp.com/album/all-on-black

The former Foreign Beggars front man continues his solo journey with an incendiary half-time collaboration with Hyroglifics.

  1. Raul Alvarez – May The Sun Return [Fallen Metropolis]

https://fallenmetropolis.bandcamp.com/album/fam031-the-sound-of-nalepastrasse-2015-2020

Beautiful, meditative, and colourful electronica that nourishes the heart and the mind with equal measure.

  1. Rnbws – Tanok [трип]

https://triprecords.bandcamp.com/album/hot-steel-round-2

Distorted bass hits, electro/ghetto-tech attitude, and tripped-out vocals make this a standout cut from the second Hot Steel compilation.

  1. SubXtort – American Police State [Format Recordings]

https://formatrecordings.bandcamp.com/album/harsh-duality

The Chicago-based producer makes a musical and political statement with this loopy, funky banger that is quintessential Midwest techno. 

  1. ZaVen – Star Dust [Sublease Music]

https://www.beatport.com/release/patrol-52/3131228

A heady, melodic journey that rewards close listening and is best enjoyed with eyes closed and headphones on.

  1. Code Walk – Stretch [Peder Mannefelt Produktion]

https://www.beatport.com/track/stretch-original-mix/14009994

Code Walk continues to blend genres and influences with an absolutely deadly cut that combines elements of breakbeat, electro, and IDM.

  1. Confuscius – Hollow Point [4NC¥]

https://confusious1.bandcamp.com/track/hollow-point

Authentic UK dubstep flavours from the up-and-coming Perth artist.
