In March we reported with considerable excitement on the upcoming release of Noo's Must Be The Music, the stunning third edition of Optimo Music's Optimo Disco Plate series. Now the series, which as label boss JD Twitch points out has now become a fully-fledged label in its own right despite originally being intended only as a vehicle for a one-off release, is ready for its fourth outing.
Optimo Music Disco Plate Four is a three-tracker from Sex Judas Feat. Ricky, a project that, in Twitch's words, "started up a few years ago to channel an anonymous Norwegian producer’s love for comics, political satire, music history, eroticism and above all electronic music. Imagine Damon Albarn’s Gorillaz project on acid, or the musical versions of The Fabulous Furry Freakbrothers on, well whatever they are on. Portrayed as a classic twosome, enfant terrible Sex Judas and his trusted sidekick Ricky come across as some kind of musical nomads with a hippy take on life."
"Musically it’s all over the place," Twitch continues, "but the essence of jamming and the love for African-American music shines through. Inspiration is taken from German psychedelic rock, deep southern disco, rhythm and blues, classic house and techno, and the avant-garde." Previews of all three tracks can be heard on the player below ahead of Optimo Music Disco Plate Four's full release on June 1.
