Review: The Optimo Music Disco Plates series returns with a reissue of a vaunted Y Records classic by Disconnection. Optimo man Keith McIvor is a self-professed Y Records freak so he must be thrilled the label granted him permission to fully license a 12" edition of Disconnection's mutant disco cover version of a song from Rodgers and Hammerstein's 1949 musical, South Pacific. This Optimo Music Disco Plate edition is an exact replica of the original Y Records 12" from 1982 - aside from the fact it arrives in a shrink-wrapped black disco bag with a 12" x 12" insert featuring the original front sleeve artwork. Look out for the extra freaky UK Discomix version that sits on the flip alongside the "faux exotica delight" of "Aaaah".

Review: ** REPRESS ** Ever since JD Twitch rebooted Optimo Music, it's been the irregular transmissions from Glasgow act Golden Teacher that has hit the spot each and every time. The amalgamation of two diverse bands from the city -noise punk outfit Ultimate Thrush and analogue house duo Silk Cut, Golden Teacher first emerged on Optimo Music early last year with a pretty apt description of sounding like "Arthur Russell's Dinosaur L jamming with Bobby O, K Alexi Shelby, Liaisons Dangereuses and Imagination, with some voodoo drummers and Sly & Robbie". Steadily building up a reputation for some riotous live performances, Golden Teacher are a class above because they manage to distill this energy into their recorded output too. The Party People 12" features three such examples, with A Side cut "Love" the kind of production that sufferers of LCD Soundsystem withdrawal will embrace and cherish for years to come.

Golden Teacher Meets Dennis Bovell At The Green Door

  1. Instigator (dub) (6:49)
  2. Like A Hawk (DB version) (8:27)
Review: Not all remixes make sense, but there's something fitting about British dub-reggae and post-punk producer Dennis Bovell reworking tracks by Glaswegian misfits Golden Teacher. Put together by Bovell at Glasgow's infamous Green Door Studio on a day off from touring, these dub revisions take the hard-to-pigeonhole six-piece's adventurous productions and add an extra layer of spaced-out goodness. While Bovell has provided some overdubs - mostly dub organ stabs - for the most part he's just made everything extra-dubby, extra-freaky and altogether weightier. The results are, predictably, mesmerizing, turning "Like a Hawk" and the previously unreleased "Instigator" into dancefloor dub masterpieces.

Review: Glasgow based composer Iona Fortune presents her debut release inspired by Eastern philosophy and said to be the first in an eight album series exploring the symbols of the I Ching, Her music is influenced by oriental sounds and features a palette of instruments that includes the Guzheng, Gamelan and Synthi AKS. The overall effect is a singular and beguiling sound that loosely fits in with Jon Hassell's Fourth World concept. Fortune also contributed a track to Optimo Music's new Fourth World compilation entitled Miracle Steps earlier in 2017. The initial vinyl edition will come on a trans lucid pressing with inside sleeve and original artwork by the artist.

Review: There seems to be no let up in the quality - or quantity, for that matter - of music to emerge from Glashow's legendary Green Door Studio. Mr TC AKA Thomas Clarke first emerged from the analogue-rich recording space last autumn, releasing the acclaimed Soundtrack For Strangers EP on Optimo Music. This follow-up is, if anything, even better, and continues Clarke's passion for combining a variety of electronic and live instruments in a variety of floor-friendly styles. Highlights include the Factory Floor style industrial-acid chug of "Surf & Destroy", the clarinet-heavy post-punk dread of "Teeth", and the sparse, no-wave freak-out "Mobiliser".

  1. Kabuki (7:52)
  2. Super Mario (7:50)
  3. Rainbow Road (6:21)
Review: Glasgow's Optima Music is, in our books, one of the hottest properties in dance music, thanks to the refined A&R skills and encyclopaedic knowledge of founder JD Twitch. The latest OM Disco Plate sees the return of Noo, a project from the minds of Christophe 'Daze' Dasen and Sami Liuski, two house heads who are masters at the funky side of the genre. "Kabuki" is an odd little banger, indeed, a pearl of track that doesn't quite fit the disco classification thanks to its deranged barrage of melodies and sci-fi harmonics, with the same applying to the quirky, playful Daft-Punk-style rhythm that is "Super Mario". You could call "Rainbow Road", the final piece, a beatless progression of the latter, a gorgeous groove made solely of airy, delayed folds of sonics.

Review: Apart from a few excellent solo appearances under her own name for the Cult Hero label, Penelope Trappes has has been primarily active across the Lismore and The Golden Filter projects, two names which have received plenty of praise from ourselves over the years. This time, however, she appears on Scotland's Optimo Music on her own, and Penelope One is probably the best and most poignant example of what this woman can do behind the mixing desk. Through a mixture of ambience and puristic cold-waves, Trappes builds a veritable journey from start to finish, never afraid to stick to her own vision of what synth music should be. Importantly, this is not a collection of tunes; it is clear that plenty of work and calibration and gone into making this into a single-minded proposition - something that could not be listened to without the context of its tracks as a whole. Moody but equally vibrant, Penelope One will draw you into its own reality.

  16. The Prats - "Disco Pope" (2:41)
Review: Whilst a disproportionate amount of cultural noise has been made regarding the punk rock revolution of the late-'70s, a good deal of what actually transpired and has since been celebrated essentially amounts to yet more rock orthodoxy in different clothing. This balance is redressed by this invigorating and inspiring collection, put together by Glasgow's redoubtable aesthetes Optimo, and chronicling a time when many young ingenues were genuinely inspired to pick up instruments with nary a rulebook in sight - bands like Fatal Microbes, Spunky Onions and The Prats may never have stood a chance commercially, yet the gloriously unreconstructed racket of this collection bristles with enduring energy and electricity.

Review: A couple of years back, Optimo Music reissued a classic chunk of NYC downtown experimentation from Peter Zummo, a post-modern composer arguably best known for his work with Arthur Russell. Thrillingly, this follow-up marks the multi-instrumentalist's first new album for many years. Full of his delay-laden trumpet lines, tumbling trombone, and spaced-out beats, Dress Code (Don't Look At My Car) feels like the products of an unlikely collaboration between Holgar Czukay, Konk and the Idjut Boys. It's all devilishly hard to pin down, but never less than inspired, with Zummo serving up both downtempo and upbeat compositions in his unique, fusion style.
