Belfast Music Club
After the last fantastic night with Tim Sweeney we're enormously pleased to announce our next very special guest. The return of an absolute hero in Optimo's JD Twitch.
When Keith McIvor (AKA Twitch) and Jonnie Wilkes formed Optimo in 1997 they both had 10 years of DJing behind them,but by 1997 both felt that an antidote to the endless 4/4 beat was necessary. After a fateful meeting on a Glasgow-Edinburgh bus journey Optimo was born, along with its legendary anything-goes philosophy. Unpredictable, genre-defying, and endlessly knowledgeable, the sounds that the pair brought to Glasgow’s Sub Club caused Optimo to become an institution, a haven for music-fans tired of blinkered music policies, eager for new sounds and wide-ranging booking policies. Over the years the club saw the likes of Liquid Liquid (from whom, of course, they take their name), Grace Jones, James Chance, and LCD Soundsystem amongst many others.
They have also recently launched the label Optimo Music releasing music they love and want to share from the likes of Factory Floor, The Green Door Kids, Naum Gabo and Chris Carter
We can't wait and hope to see you there!
