Oval Space Music invite this year’s most popular duo Feel My Bicep to host Glasgow’s DJ duo Optimo and Brooklyn genre bending masters, Metro Area Live.
The brainchild of veteran producers Morgan Geist and Darshan Jesrani, Metro Area was born out of the duo’s dichotomous love of both the old moods of R&B, disco and boogie and the more cutting-edge sound of innovative house and techno. Bursting onto the scene in 1999 with their self-titled debut 12″ featuring the cult smash “Atmosphrique”, and have since been pleasing our ears with releases on Environ, Tiger Sushi and fabric.
A staple within the scene for over 15 years, DJ duo Twitch & JG Wilkes, aka Optimo, both started out playing different music; Twitch – electro, noisy rock and the eighties New York punk funk of Liquid (from who they borrowed their name) and Wiles reggae, funk and jazz. From performing as spate entities for 10 years, to hosting their Sunday Optimo residence at Sub Club in Glasgow every weekend for 13 years straight.
One of this year’s most popular DJ duos has without a doubt been Bicep, AKA Belfast boys Andy Ferguson and Matt McBriar. The depth of their musical knowledge has stood them in good stead, providing the fuel for some really great DJ sets as well as their musical productions. Brought together through a common obsession with all things analog, their blog, ‘Feel My Bicep’, has grown to be the first port of call for those searching for cutting-edge and hard-to-find disco and it’s a pleasure to have them host this very special line up with us.
