Midnight in a Perfect World: JD Twitch

Midnight In A Perfect World

Hailing from Glasgow, Scotland, Keith McIvor, a.k.a. JD Twitch, established himself as an internationally-renowned DJ as one-half of Optimo, also the name of the dynamic duo's legendary club night where he served as a resident DJ alongside JG Wilkes. Known for their adventurous, eclectic, body-moving sets and equally wild parties, Optimo became a hotbed for touring acts while the DJ duo released critically-acclaimed mixes and were invited to contribute to the revered Fabric mix series in 2010. While their long-running DJ night is no longer active, JD Twitch stays busy touring and spinning at clubs around the world, releasing his own original productions, and running the Optimo Music and Optimo Trax record labels. For his entry into KEXP's Midnight In A Perfect World series, he's seamlessly pieced together a thematic mix revolving around nuclear war, a catastrophic topic that he manages to make groovy, cinematic, and propulsive with deep and classic underground dancefloor selections
