Hyp 041: Optimum

Hyp 041: Optimum

Having launched his own Hum & Buzz imprint, alongside Ikonika, remixed both Brenmar and American Men, released on Mike Paradinas’ fabled Planet Mu, and made an appearance on Night Slugs eponymous debut compilation, all within the last 12 months, things are looking busy for London-based producer Optimum.

Honing a unique vision of lazer-eyed synths and halfstep-to-house drum programming, plus an almost unrivaled take on twisted arpeggio rhythms that has seen both his solo releases caned by the likes of Bok Bok, Kingdom and Scratcha DVA, the sounds currently emanating from this producers hardrive are straight up take on London’s current dancefloor flux.

Running us through a wealth of unreleased UK house/bass material for his Hyp mix, plus a keen ear for the latest Deep South hip-hop trends, Optimum displays a keen knack for dancefloor movers of any variety, making this one of our favourite mixes yet.
