DESCRIPTION

Glasgow Underground launches a new mix compilation series in May with the release of Optimo:The Underground Sound of Glasgow mixed by Optimo’s JD Twitch. Each installment of The Underground Sound of… will see a DJ focus on his or her home city, compiling mixing and collection of music from said city.

Keith McIvor, aka JD Twitch is a name synonymous with quality and eclecticism in modern electronic music and his Optimo project alongside Jonnie Wilkes is no different.  The duo’s Optimo (E!pacio) club night, which ran from 1997 to 2010 on Sundays in Glasgow’s Sub Club, is the stuff of legend. McIvor had previously been an electro, rock and punk funk DJ as well as promoter of Pure, a techno night that dominated Glasgow’s clubbing landscare for ten years, until by his own admission, seamless mixing and ‘obvious, easy and predictable’ musical selections wore thing with him – planting the Optimo seed.

This 12” features 5 of the rarer tracks from the mix.
