Glasgow's heralded JD Twitch brings out the REAL trance

One half of the epic Optimo duo, JD Twitch, releases another brain nugget for the music heads worldwide. His White Light 54 mixtape takes inspiration from a most reviled genre, but instead of the cliched swells and hackneyed breakdowns Twitch takes aim at what he considers true “trance” music:

““I don’t drive but I spend a lot of my life being driven about late at night which can have quite a transcendental effect. I wanted to reclaim the trance word from years of misuse and bad associations and create a mix of what I term pure trance. I knew right from the start the kind of tracks to look out that would evoke the feeling I get late at night, being driven between cities when the conversation has ceased and everyone in the car is lost in their own thoughts, slightly spaced out.”

Sounds brilliant. Stream the mix below, but if you know what’s good for you download WHITE LIGHT 54 by JD Twitch and save it for a rainy day.
