Honey was built on the shoulders of many mighty Sunday dance floors. To name a few: Uranus, Sound Factory, Sunset, Stompy, Body and Soul, Horse Meat Disco, and... Optimo Espacio. More than a few Optimo heads have and do come to Honey, so we wanted to give them the opportunity to mourn their loss without the formidable challenge of trans-atlanic flight
"On April 25th, the greatest club night in either Glasgow, the UK or the world (depending on who you ask) finishes. Optimo (Espacio), the brainchild of JD Twitch and JG Wilkes, arrived quietly at Glasgow's Sub Club in 1997, and set about blowing the cobwebs off a stale, self-congratulatory Glasgow techno scene through a simple core philosophy: If it sounds good and makes people dance, play it. Now, after 12-and-a-half years of sublime, genre-straddling, how-did-they-do-that acts of weekly musical witchcraft, combined with a zero-tolerance approach to "DJ culture" and a live booking policy that has brought LCD Soundsystem, ESG, Whitehouse, Liquid Liquid, The Bug, Franz Ferdinand, Sir Richard Bishop, The Bush Tetras and a couple hundred more to their 500-capacity home, it will all be over." -Resident Advisor
