Wink gives a nod
Thanks to the efforts of a legendary figure in the electronic music world, The Condemned soundtrack will offer a "Wink" to WWE fans. Listen closely to the Game Realities Feature (HERE) and you will hear a remix of "Stone Cold" Steve Austin's entrance music "I Won't Do What You Tell Me" by DJ Josh Wink. The song, originally written by WWE composer James Johnson, will be featured on The Condemned soundtrack which will be released exclusively on iTunes on April 24. Wink is considered to be one of the pioneers of the American Rave scene in the early ‘90s, and is the owner of the Ovum Recordings record label in Philadelphia.
"It was a big challenge for me," admitted Wink, "It was a rock track and it took a lot longer because it really needed to be something special and different. I wanted to give a kind of James Bond feel to it with an electric kind of Josh Wink interpretation as well." Wink can trace his interest in sports-entertainment back to the 1970's, when the young DJ would watch Superstars like Junkyard Dog and The Iron Sheik on TV. "My main concern about the whole thing was that "Stone Cold" would hear the song and put a Stone Cold Stunner on me!" Joked the talented musician.
Does DJ Josh Wink see any similarities between himself and the Texas Rattlesnake? "Not really, my favorite cold beverage is iced green tea!"
