In late 2016, the Spanish blog Unlocked Youth commissioned Optimo’s JD Twitch to create two exclusive DJ mixes. Using the theme of the Madrid-based’s byline “inspired by Industrial Sound and Contemporary Art,” Twitch launched into a sun-bleached trip through his record collection. With a lot in common with his recent So Low DJ sets and recent compilation for Vinyl Factory, “Balearic Rhythms” mixes in recognisable industrial and EBM sources with a slower tempo befitting the psycho-geographical locus of the Balearic islands. Twitch’s world renowned skill at pulling disparate musical strands together into cohesive wholes is in full flow here.. think the sun setting on a blistering day rapidly turning into a steamed nocturnal haze , a slightly more comfortable introduction to the night than “So Low,” but still as adventurous and pleasurable.
