Care In The Community

May 19, 2009


Those nice lads at Optimo  don’t forget their roots. In spite of their cross-border appeal, and the continued success derived from managing one of Glasgow’s longest-running club nights, Twitch and Wilkes haven’t let stardom get to their heads. Their newest venture is a case in point. The Optimo Music label was launched earlier in the year with a commitment to release only Scottish music. Not surprisingly, the label reaches beyond the realms of national embarrassments such as Wet Wet Wet and Del Amitri, instead opting for hitherto unknown talents like Den Haan and Big Ned (NOT a Barry Ferguson pseudonym).

Release number four fuses jagged electroclash beats, pulsating synths and androgynous vocals to devastating effect.
