Boomkat Product Review:
Optimo’s JD Twitch ropes in some fresh meat - Helena Hauff, Powell, Kübler-Ross - to boot four zingers from his well-received So Low compilation; a collection of EBM, post-punk and industrial anthems on regular rotation at his Glasgow club night of the same name.
Powell chops up and slathers extra MS20 on P/1e’s 49 Second Romance with ice cool, stepping momentum faithful to the original but with his own stamp of barely-hinged funk; whilst JD Twitch understandably drew first dibs to have a go on the brilliant Gerry & The Holograms, giving it a sleek, new, DJ-friendly chassis of sparking drum machines.
At Helena Hauff’s digits, The Klinik’s Belgian EBM classic Moving Hands is reduced and pinched to a snaky writhe, and Glasgow legend Dave Clark a.k.a. Kübler-Ross furnishes a female cover version of John Bender’s Ross Victims Of Victimless Crimes.
