The title of this EP sorta says it all. It's quite an important release for the label. Glasgow musical connections all around! When most people think of Optimo Music, they think of the long-running club night in Glasgow 'Optimo (Espacio)', which ran for 12 years every Sunday…headed by JD Twitch and JG Wilkes. Label honcho JD Twitch is extremely proud to be releasing Naum Gabo…as this is the studio project if his Optimo partner, Jonnie Wilkes, along with James Savage. Jonnie and James (formally releasing three 12 inches simply as 'Naum' on Kompakt's mighty Speicher series) have been active on the scene for a while now. As well as releasing the original music on Kompakt, Mule, Eskimo, Dissident, and TINAE they have provided some wonderful Naum Gabo reworks for Hot Chip, Simian Mobile Disco, Franz Ferdinand, Snow Patrol, Psychonauts and so many more. Twitch has long been a fan of Naum Gabo so it is a bit of a coup to be getting this fantastic release: Two covers of two mighty Scottish acts from the late 70s/early 80s - Simple Minds and Fingerprintz. 'Theme for Great Cities' was originally released in 1981, an electro-trance-funk classic, pre-dating the rave scene by about 10 years. Naum Gabo takes it, electrifies it, and turns it into a hi-fi dancefloor filler. “Wet Job” is Fingerprintz' dirty groover from '79…again, it's reworked into a dark disco futuristic grooveride into doom. It even makes my teeth hurt, which means the frequencies are causing effect. And I know that's definitely what I want happening in a nightclub. So not 1, not 2, but 3 Scottish music greats on one slinky slice of vinyl.
