"Earlier this month, The Vinyl Factory and 180 The Strand partnered with the British Council to present the British Pavilion at the 14th International Architecture Biennale in Venice. As part of the celebrations, The Vinyl Factory commissioned JD Twitch and JG Wilkes aka Optimo to create the soundtrack for the launch event, and their incredible selection didn’t disappoint.
The Glaswegian duo’s mix brings together such seemingly disparate music sources as Wendy Carlos’ soundtrack to A Clockwork Orange, Mark Stewart’s dubbed-out remix of William Blake’s Jerusalem, Andrew Weatherall’s Sabres of Paradise classic ‘Smokebelch’ and tracks by The Fall, Joy Division, Steel Pulse and even Bronski Beat(!) into a brilliant and powerful comment on the complexity of modern Britain."
