JD Twitch (Optimo Music) Mix JD Twitch is one half of acclaimed DJ/Remix duo Optimo. They've released a number of fantastic compilations and remixed tracks by Peter, Bjorn, & John, Florence & the Machine, and Liquid Liquid. Optimo (Espacio) is also the name of the legendary club night Optimo have been hosting at Glasgow's Sub Club for over a decade. This night, in my humble opinion, is the Helen of Troy of club nights; "the night that launched a thousand nights."
Runaway Exclusive Runaway is the collaboration between DJs Jacques Renault and Marcos Cabral, whose tribal disco house sound is so sincere, intense, and DIY that they've been a key ingredient in DFA's second wave. Their "Brooklyn Club Jam" single was widely-considered one of 2008's sickest bangers, 2009 found them remixing a slew of tracks, and 2010 will see the arrival of their debut album.
