This November the legendary Optimo come to New Zealand for the first time.

JD Twitch and JG Wilkes play their only NZ show in Wellington on Friday November 21st.

The duo founded the infamous Sunday nights at the institutional Glasgow Sub Club back in 1997 (still running today as a monthly). Their world-renowned sets include everything from techno to post punk, electro to northern soul. They are musical risk takers that play anything to make the crowd lose it. Genres don’t matter, if it makes you move, they play it.

Held in such high regard the highly sought after live slot at their club night has included the likes of LCD Sound System, TV on the Radio, The Juan Mclean, Hot Chip, Marshall Jeffereson, Alter Ego, ESG, Grace Jones, Detroit Grand Pubahs, Ivan Smagge, Liquid Liquid, Michael Mayer and Fourtet.

The remix list includes – Simian Mobile Disco, James Chance and The Contortions, Chvrches, Nighmares on Wax, Hot Chip, Django Django, Blondes, Mr Lee, Capricorn, Denise Motto, Konono No1, Polyester, Florence and The Machine, The Presets, Gossip, Franz Ferdinand and Liquid Liquid’s classic Optimo (where their name originates).

As well as touring worldwide, holding down their residency at the Sub Club, releasing their own material separately as Naum Gabo (Wilkes) and JD Twitch and continuously remixing, Optimo have their own record label Optimo Music and the dancefloor oriented sub label Optimo Trax. Both distributed by Kompakt.

Playing host to this one off event will be The Grand’s first floor and garden bar which will be transformed into a dark, avant-garde, discotheque.

Do not miss this chance to experience two of the most highly respected DJs in the world and the sound that is Optimo.

Support from The Flava DJs, B.Lo and DJ Coda.
