Artist Focus: JD Twitch

Some artists leave a legacy that stretches far beyond a great single or a number 1 album. 

Artist Focus is a new series hosted by the extended Melodic Distraction family that deep dives into the life and times of the musicians that have defined the sound of modern music. From the stone cold classics to the unearthed gems and forgotten B-sides, our community tribute an hour of music by a single artist that has had a notable impact on their life.

This month we will be celebrating the work of legendary DJ/remixer/producer JD Twitch. During the 90s, the night he ran alongside Brainstorm was instrumental in playing cutting edge house, techno and everything in between to a die-hard crowd. In 1998, he started Optimo with J.G Wilkes at the Sub Club in Glasgow. Renowned for its diverse music policy, the club retains a reputation for adventurous innovation and hedonism. With over 100 remix credits and original productions to his name, under a myriad of different guises, spread over the dizzying array of labels, it is hard to pin his musical creations down a specific sound or genre. You can be sure that it will be different and you know he loves your ears.
