  • JD Twitch has mixed Optimo: The Underground Sound Of Glasgow, due out on May 6th. The first Optimo-branded compilation since 2010's fabric 52, Underground Sound Of Glasgow also marks the debut in a new series from Glasgow Underground, in which DJs create mixes based on the music from their home city. Twitch and his partner Jonnie Wilkes ran the much-loved Sunday night party Optimo at the city's Sub Club from 1997 to 2010, and the pair have DJing experience in Glasgow beyond Optimo as well. In a press release for the album, Twitch notes that "Glasgow is a relatively small city but has always had a very vibrant nightlife with wildly enthusiastic audiences." Emphasizing the variety of music that comes out of the city, he admits that he's "not sure if there is a 'Glasgow sound,' but there is definitely a Glasgow attitude to making music." Underground Sound Of Glasgow contains tracks from a number of the city's most prominent dance music artists, including Auntie Flo, Funk D'Void and 6th Borough Project, as well as some newer names such as Konx-om-Pax, HaHaHa and Firecracker affiliate Lord Of The Isles. A five-track vinyl sampler will accompany the mix's release, which you can stream here. Tracklist CD 01. John Steven - The Big Kilmarnock Bonnet 02.
