JD Twitch discusses the rise of industrial and EBM on the dance floor
The Optimo selector talks about his So Low compilation alongside Powell and Helena Hauff.
The latest offering from The Vinyl Factory sees Optimo’s JD Twitch collect some of his favourite ’80s EBM and industrial tracks on a compilation named after his occasional Glasgow club night, So Low.
To mark the release of the 2LP compilation, The Vinyl Factory spoke to Twitch about how he’s gone from playing EBM to confused audiences to running his own club night devoted to an increasingly popular subsection of ’80s music.
The film also features interviews with industrial enthusiasts Helena Hauff, Diagonal founder Powell and So Low resident Katie Shambles, exploring how the sound has found favour on contemporary dance floors.
