Name?

JD Twitch and JG Wilkes (Optimo).

Music policy?

Music policy?

Impossible to categorise; the pair believe almost every type of music contains something of worth, so don't be surprised even if the odd country and western number makes it on to the playlist.



Usually found at?

Their long-running weekly Sunday residency Optimo at Glasgow's Sub Club, as well as regular guest slots at clubs and festivals all over the world.



Any releases?

The Kill The DJ mix CD series as well as numerous remixes of other artists' songs including a recent reworking of band du jour Peter, Bjorn and John's Let's Call It Off, although they will only agree to work on tracks that they absolutely love.



Following?

Absolutely massive in their home town and a guaranteed draw for any promoter who manages to book them.



Where can I catch them next?

Tonight, at Belfast's Stiff Kitten Club.



Anything else?

There is a strong local connection, as the Wilkes half of the duo is originally from Belfast.
