So we decided to start our 'Label of the Month' feature back up again and though there was some strong competition in the end there was only going to be one winner, Optimo Music.
The Glasgow based label run by JD Twitch of Optimo DJ and club night has long been a favourite of ours, with an ear for unearthing long neglected gems and working with some of the best new acts around. Recent highlights have included the brilliant Green Door Kids album, a collection of post punk/no wave disco classics laid down by a group of ten year olds, and Chris Carter of Throbbing Gristle's long unavailable The Spaces Between.
Twitch was kind enough to put together a mixtape featuring seven tracks from the label's back catalogue, listen to it here and head over to the blog now to read an interview with the man himself.
