It's titled So Low and it's coming out via The Vinyl Factory in February 2016.
The compilation will come out in February of 2016. Explaining the collection's title, JD Twitch says: "So Low is an occasional night at The Poetry Club in Glasgow where I play some of the music I played when I first started DJing back in 1987. At that time the audience I played to mostly loathed what I was playing and rarely danced but then shortly after, when house music arrived, I found a different audience who actually liked to dance."
He adds: "In response to my wife's deep love of this music and requests from some friends who were too young to hear it in a club at the time, or indeed were not even born when most of this music was made, I was persuaded to revisit a lot of records I still loved but rarely played out, and So Low was born. It has an extremely enthusiastic audience, a joyous atmosphere and is the antithesis of what a club in Scotland playing this music nearly 30 years ago would have been like."
Music from Throbbing Gristle, Front 242, Chris & Cosey and Hard Corps all features on So Low, which will be available on double vinyl, CD and digital formats. Launch parties are scheduled to take place in London, Glasgow and Berlin in early 2016, though details are still TBA. Powell and Helena Hauff haven been lined up to remix material from the the album.
This year JD Twitch released a compilation called [Cease & Desist] DIY! (Cult Classics from the Post-Punk Era 1978-82) via his own Optimo Music label. (That one was subject to some major label stickiness.)
