Optimo - I Love Techno - 13 November 2010

Our heroes live in Ghent a couple of weeks ago.

Banging in Belgium? Oh yes. Complete with shouty over-excited MC this takes no prisoners - you can forget the Nina Simone / This Mortal Coil side of Optimo here, this is back to the old PURE days in style.

Taken from the gig itself you can hear the manual touching-up and down of the 12"s, which makes a change from some of the over-produced so-called 'live mixes' you hear floating about these days.

Bastard! Got a tweet from JD Twitch last night to say "ha ha! I knew you couldn't stop" when I did the post below. Aye very good. Definitely not back for good, but we can't have a Weatherall without an Optimo, can we? A two-off, if you will.

Right - off to see Atari Teenage Riot, should clear out the midweek cobwebs...

I hope Keith's right ;-) Don't suppose he gave any hint about whether the Pure 20th is ever happening?!

Anyway, cracking mix, bizarre shouty MC aside.

Great to have you back, even if it's only occasional! When I saw the Weatherall radio ep was happening, I immediately thought what a shame you weren't around any more....

great stuff mate, cheers! those tunes don't half remind me of sweating a couple of stones off my body weight at the Venue in edinburgh. possibly not the best club i ever went to but, with out doubt, the best "techno" night I ever had the pleasure to witness. those tunes are something else...when "techno" was techno!!!
