JG Wilkes (Optimo) DJ set

Galeria Zé dos Bois

JG Wilkes performs on Saturday night, January 21st, the opening day of 'waters of night' by Pádraig Timoney.

Optimo are the duo JD Twitch and JG Wilkes. They each have over 25 years DJ-ing experience and in the last decade have become both renowned and highly respected for their memorable and ecstatic deejay sets. Twitch and Wilkes exhibit a unique disregard for genres and musical restrictions in their craft, creating a nightclub experience that strikes out into territories far beyond the accepted boundaries of club music.

JG Wilkes – records and remixes as Naum Gabo with his friend James Savage. Naum Gabo have been composing and remixing for almost ten years. Their varied palette of sounds – noir-ish hybrids of seminal underground house, muscular arpegiated italo, dubby cosmic atmospherics, jagged new-wave discotheque, analogue synthesized funk – has been distinguished by releases on Kompakt, Thisisnotanexit, Dissident, Cross Town Rebels, Eskimo Recordings, Lets Play House and Endless Flight, releases with which the duo have built a reputation as purveyors of high quality electronic music and production.

Naum Gabo’s mixes have seen them re-interpret the works of a wide range of artists: – Hot Chip, Michochan, Psychonauts, Simian Mobile Disco, Snow Patrol, Detachments, Catalepsia, Midnight Mike and Franz Ferdinand, fracturing the original tracks through a prism of futuristic dark disco. Naum have also celebrated their Glasgow home on the “Songs From A Great City” (Optimo Music) with cover versions of tracks by Scottish acts Simple Minds and Fingerprintz.
