If you would like us to come to your town, our bookings are now handled by Caroline at Spun Out - contact her here or alternatively send Twitch an email.


If you are interested, this is how we operate - we think djs charging huge fees or being inflexible about their fees is ridiculous as it means some of the smaller, more interesting clubs aren't able to book the djs they would like to have play. We do this for a living but playing great clubs is important to us. If you have a large budget and a full club, we expect to be paid accordingly but if you don't and would like us to come and play, get in touch and we will come to some arrangement. As there are two of us, it is also possible to book one of us to come if this makes it more affordable for you.

Optimo - striving to break down the bullshit that exists in dj culture since 1997.

we love your ears
