As most of you know Naum Gabo is the studio project of Optimo's Jonnie Wilkes, along with James Savage.

After releasing three 12 inches simply as “Naum”, on Kompakt’s mighty Speicher series, Optimo Music are now releasing two covers of two mighty Scottish acts from the late 70s/early 80s – Simple Minds and Fingerprintz.

“Theme for Great Cities” was originally released in 1981, an electro-trance-funk classic, pre-dating the rave scene by about 10 years. Naum Gabo takes it, electrifies it, and turns it into a hi-fi dancefloor filler. Check it out on soundcloud: http://soundcloud.com/optimo-music/naum-gabo-theme-from-great-cities

“Wet Job” is Fingerprintz’ dirty groover from ’79…again, it’s reworked into a dark disco futuristic grooveride into doom. It even makes my teeth hurt, which means the frequencies are causing effect. And I know that’s definitely what I want happening in a nightclub.

So not 1, not 2, but 3 Scottish music greats on one slinky slice of vinyl. There’s a lot of local pride in this one, folks!

Available on 12" vinyl and digital from 14th Feb. Please join our mailing list to keep informed: http://www.optimomusic.com/mailinglist.php

When I heard this track it reminded me of music from a Japanese shoot em up game but I cant remember which one now. Theres a lot of underappreciated music in computer games just waiting to be rediscovered. For example Zombie Nation sampled from the Commodore game Lazy Jones and theres been various others. I doubt thats the source of inspiration but thought i'd just mention it.
