W IS FOR WINX

Yup, a pseudonym for Josh Wink. Used particularly in 1995 and for dance floor hit “Don’t Laugh”. Sort of a novelty hit. Like the dreads.

Wiki: As a youth, Wink studied the piano for three years and took clarinet lessons as a teenager. His interest in DJing began as a 13-year-old, when he became apprentice to a friend, a radio station and mobile DJ in Philadelphia. It was at this time that Wink also became a vegetarian, following in the footsteps of his mother and brother. As a teen, he quickly gained familiarity with DJing equipment and taught himself how to mix beats in 1986. By 1988, Wink had met fellow DJ King Britt, and the two began creating original tracks together. The year 1988 was also momentous for Wink in that he turned eighteen, and was then able to work as a DJ in nightclubs.

“Don’t Laugh” was advertised as “the one that goes ‘ha ha ha ha ha ha ha'”. Informative non?
