Fresh off the back of their recent Japanese tour, Scottish duo Optimo have signed up with one of Tokyo’s most upfront labels, Mule Musiq. The Mule office have sprouted a new sub label called Endless Flight and managed to persuade Optimo to get behind the decks for its debut release. The result is “Walkabout”, a journey of deep, twisted sounds stirred together with a sprinkling of leftfield looniness. You should remember hearing from JG Wilkes and JD Twitch in 2004 when they released the massive 2 CD mix “How To Kill The DJ” for Parisian imprint Kill The DJ Records. And if you are a resident of Glasgow then you may have had the pleasure of enjoying their Sunday night club-night called Optimo which in the past has featured lineups involving Michael Mayer, IsolĂ©e, Luciano, Chicks On Speed and Franz Ferdinand.
