It's a pay-what-you-can affair, with all proceeds going to Philadelphia music charity Philly Pops

Josh Wink's Ovum Recordings label is 25 years old, and to celebrate they're releasing a Bandcamp-only compilation in aid of music charity Philly Pops.

Philly Pops is a programme that provides music education to around 2,500 disadvantaged kids in the School District of Philadelphia. The charity will receive 100 per cent of the monies raised by the album, which is entitled Ovum 303 (after they skipped that catalogue number deliberately last year, with this album in mind) and is being released on a pay-what-you-want basis. It includes tracks from Wink himself, Manik, KiNK, Nic Fanciulli and Loco Dice, among others, with one release included from each year of the label's life – though as each one is supplied in all its original mixes, that adds up to a whopping 68 tracks in total.

Annoucing the album, Wink said: "Every day that I get up and do what I love is a gift, and you all have given me a lifetime supply. After 25 years of Liquid Summers and Autumn Dayz, I think it's time to return the favour in a different way… let's invest in the next generation of musicians together."
