Premiere: Philipp Gorbachev – Arrest Me (Jd Twitch Edit)
"This sounds so alive for me! One long phrase, which is easy to follow, impossible technology of recording. And I have to think about Coldcut, Beats and Pieces.. JD Twitch dropped a bomb!" Philipp Gorbachev
We're premiering the excellent JD Twitch of Optimo's edit of Arrest Me from the Russian born artist, musician and performer, Philipp Gorbachev.
His "Silver Album" this year got us rather hot under the collar earlier this year. We talked to him a few weeks back. Check that here.
Gorbachev met Comeme label head Matias Aguayo in Berlin in 2011 on a self-imposed exile from Moscow. He's since become a key member of the Cómeme stable.
Get your ears round this ace edit from Mr Keith McIvor aka JD Twitch aka one half of the amazing Optimo… if you didn't already know!
