Learning Secrets presents J.G Wilkes of Optimo at Beauty Bar (12/10)
JG Wilkes is one half of Glasgow's weekly Sunday clubbing ritual: Optimo Espacio "Glasgow's finest underground clubbing institution". Wilkes dj's from vinyl, incorporating cross genre records with the common thread of a real groove - be it disco, reggae, shuffle, wonky rock'n'roll or primitive electronica, and when he plays there is only one place you want to be: on your feet dancing.
As well as djing around the world, Wilkes produces and remixes at his own studio, Hottrax in Glasgow. Working with his studio partner, James Savage under the name " Naum" they have made various releases with Kompakt Records (Cologne) and produced remixes as "Naum Gabo" for many artists including Hot Chip, Franz Ferdinand, The Lotterboys, The Switches, Snow Patrol, Sons and Daughters, Archie Bronson Outfit and Midnight Mike.
