Stream an Awesome Acid-House Mix From Optimo
- Words: Patric Fallon
Well, JD Twitch's and JG Wilkes' highly regarded and sorely missed Optimo party might be long gone, but that doesn't mean their stellar mixes need to die, too. Just a couple of days ago, the fellas threw together a great collection of acid house for their Radio Magnetic podcast, and we just had to spread the good word. Over on Mixcloud, you can stream the 70-minute DJ set featuring 20 tracks born in dance-music hotbeds across the globe, all produced between 1987 and 2010. On the construction of the mix, the Optimo DJs say, "The mix was recorded using two turntables and a laptop in one take, with some minor editing after the fact." You can listen to the Acid Eyeful mix below. (via Self-Titled)
