  3. Without Sound (5:11)
Review: Newcomer Feon up next on Optimo Music, with some some gorgeous and sunkissed balearica. The London based producer wrote these tracks in a brisk 10 day session, shortly after the experience of Ayahuasca ceremony - which is evidenced in the psychedelic sound of the first track. He has explained that the production involved his vocals being layered 30 times in different harmonies, then put through a space echo and you can sure hear it! This one was awesome. On the flip, we have the trance inducing muscle disco of "Holland Fly By" with its super cosmic influences enough to propel your mind into the stratosphere. Finally there's something much more experimental on the solemn, breaks-driven tripper "Without Sound".

Dub Of Times (limited 12")
Cat: OMTGFLTD 001. Rel: 24 Jan 18
Disco/Nu-Disco
  1. End Of Times (Golden dub) (8:16)
  2. End Of Times (Silver dub) (7:12)
  3. End Of Times (Drone-apella) (4:36)
Review: London based duo The Golden Filter are comprised of Australian Penelope Trappes and American Stephen Hindman - who met in New York City originally. Known staples of Optimo Music for some time, their End Of Times EP was released in late 2017 and saw the duo in top form. The track is a throbbing and hypnotic new beat jam that gives a respectful nod to the master Giorgio Moroder with its fine use of arpeggio and repetitive vintage beats beneath Trappes' seductive come hither vocal: it's pure magic! There are three versions on this 12", with the aforementioned Golden Dub, the more uptempo and straight ahead Silver Dub and the course the rather convenient Drone-apella for good measure: which includes those ethereal analogue pads and eerie trails of reverb. 2017 was a standout year for the duo who also released their well received sixth studio album Still // Alone.

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.

  1. Leaving Forever (6:29)
  2. SCG (4:11)
  3. Freedom From The Known (8:59)
  4. Let Me In (4:30)
Review: The revolving door between Glasgow's legendary Green Door Studio and JD Twitch's Optimo Music continues, with more graduates of the legendary recording space making their debut on the imprint. If this is EP is anything to go by, Junto Club could well go the way of Golden Teacher and become firm favourites of those who love their dance music eccentric, off-kilter and hard to pin down. Over the four tracks here, the Glaswegian fusionists variously doff a cap to baggy Balearic pop ("Freedom From The Known"), hard-wired, Italo-influenced industrial funk ("Leaving Forever"), the sax-laden post-punk throb of Chakk ("SCG"), and wonky gothic pop ("Let Me In"). That, though, is only half the story, given the combo's unique and enthralling musical vision.

Throw Down (12")
Cat: OMD 07. Rel: 23 Aug 16
Disco/Nu-Disco
  1. Throw Down (original mix) (5:05)
  2. Throw Down (Latin Freestyle mix) (5:26)
Review: For the seventh volume in Optimo Music's Disco Plate series, JD Twitch has recruited Alex Warren AKA Kiwi, whose previous releases on Blase Boys Club were particularly well received. "Throw Down" is arguably his most ambition cut yet: a cover version of Carmen's cult 1986 electrofunk jam of the same name that comes in two contrasting versions. On the virtual A-side you'll find Warren's original version, where Ciara Holder's confident, nuanced vocal rides a chunky synth bassline, clipped guitars, sparkling synthesizer flourishes and an unfussy, toe-tapping drum machine rhythm. Arguably even better is the Latin Freestyle mix, which sounds like a long lost Latin Rascals production with additional, spine-tingling piano riffs.

Review: The new alias of Norwegian producer Tore Gjedrem of Ost & Kjex fame. Here he channels a love of eclectic influences: from blues, funk, disco and post-punk right through to IDM, Norwegian new wave and acid house. He stated that we wished to create a world where all musical ideas are possible and bound together by the worlds and words of Judas - the ultimate sinner reborn as a child of Venus. With contributions by friends in the Oslo scene as hometown legends such as Bugge Wesseltoft, DJ Pal Strangefruit Nyhus, composer Ole-Henrik Moe Sidiki and multi instrumentalist Ivar Snuten Winther.

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.

Review: Jacob Yates has long been one of Glasgow's most interesting and thought-provoking artists, though few in the city, let alone elsewhere, have heard of him. Hopefully this surprise album on JD Twitch's admirable Optimo Music imprint will change all that. Across the course of the album's ten tracks you'll hear softly spin, Nick Cave style darkness, droning shoegaze rock, blissful acoustic pop, mesmerizing "Fourth World" style ambient goodness, Arab Strap style post-rock, hard-pigeonhole curiosities and spaced-out early morning kosmiche business. Throughout, Yates distinctive lyrics and off-kilter vocal delivery provide an inspired, unifying voice. Recommended.
