Ordinary Friends Xmas Party with Optimo (Espacio)

  • After what was the most incredible evening in February, we are absolutely delighted to welcome back Optimo (Espacio) to The White Hotel for our final party of 2019, on Mad Friday in December. As you should be aware, JD Twitch and JG Wilkes are two of the most revered characters in today’s burgeoning dance music scene. Founders of Optimo (Espacio), the seminal Glasgow institution that defined a generation, the duo have since gone on to DJ across the globe taking the Optimo moniker with them. Prior to Optimo, Twitch and Wilkes cut their teeth in Techno and were responsible for promoting some of the most memorable Scottish raves; Twitch’s Edinburgh based Pure becoming the first UK date to host Techno pioneer Jeff Mills. But it was the pair’s desire to throw a party that would allow them ‘complete musical freedom’ that eventually gave rise to Optimo (Espacio). Formed in 1997, Optimo (Espacio) began at the now legendary Sub Club and continued to run for 13 years developing a cult following and inspiring a plethora of musicians and DJ’s along the way. Optimo have also spawned three records labels, ‘Optimo Music’, and the more dancefloor oriented and now defunct ‘Optimo Trax’, which saw releases from the likes of Man Power, Jasper James and Luke Solomon. And earlier this year the pair launched a brand-new label, ‘Against Fascism Trax’, with all proceeds going towards Hope Not Hate, a UK charity focussed on anti-fascist and anti-racism campaigning. The duo have been honing their skills for 20 plus years and this was apparent when they delivered nothing short of a DJ masterclass for us back in February. We hadn’t even left the club, and the message was clear - we must to do it again! Thanks for all your support this year! If you came to stand still, stand somewhere else.
