A bit of a departure from the more club-oriented mixes we've had so far, this month we asked Optimo legend Keith McIvor AKA JD Twitch for a specially themed selection ahead of Scotland's independence referendum. The resulting effort is typically eclectic, characteristically challenging at times and fully absorbing throughout. McIvor's approach is to sculpt a journey determined by evocative track names and thematic links, somehow tying everything together sonically in the process, confirming Twitch’s status as one of the best selectors around. He certainly gets our vote!
