Optimo Vinyl, CD & tapes from this artist at Norman Records
Glasgow production duo Naum Gabo made up of Jonnie Wilkes of Optimo and mastering engineer James Savage are a strong team with releases on Kompakt, Correspondant and Fright records. The title track sounding like something the Modified Toy Orchestra would make if they made a techno album, bit crushing and clanky lo-fi in high definition, and the reverse bringing big synth stabs and a garage groove.
This is not a record about Martin Lawrence in the 2001 smash-hit comedy the Black Knight. No, it is about the primal feeling of wandering through a dark night, a feeling that is alone in its kind - which is why the record is available only on pitch black vinyl. Optimo’s sampler includes two piecies of rock and two of house.
