New Optimo Music off shoot label 'So Low' presents 4 inspirational tracks...


So Low is an occasional night in Glasgow run by Iona Fortune, JD Twitch, Katie Shambles and Becky
Marshall. So Low is strictly for creatures of the night and plays music that could perhaps be described by the
words Dark Waves / Cold Waves / Minimal Synthesis / Maximal Industrial / Lo-Nrg / Forgotten Flemish Goth
Bands, Teutonic Apocalyptic Beats ++

It is now also a label, administered by Optimo Music.

After debuting with Happy Meals “Full Ashram Devotional Ceremony” album, here is the first 12” release,
“Now & Then”, a various artists 4-track EP featuring two tracks from now and two from then. It’s released in
late July.

The four tracks are -
A1) Ian Hicks - False Awakening (2017). 100% Modern Maximal 110bpm Synth masterpiece with buried vox
from half of Portland’s much missed Soft Metals.
A2) Luxos - Vihreä Ovi (2017). 100% hypno atmospherics from Glasgow’s Luxos aka Daniel Magee (Lo
Kindre) & Maria Rossi (Cucina Povera).
AA1) Carl Matthews - As Above So Below (1982). 100% synth XTC out of Cumbria originally released on the
Flowmotion compilation on Colin Potter’s ICR label.
AA2) The Schmutz Sisters - La Folle (1988). 100% Goth waltz classic from Switzerland. End of the night
dance floor drama assured.

The 12” comes housed in a bespoke hand printed fold out poster sleeve inserted into a plastic sleeve with
screen printed text on the plastic, designed and created by Katie Shambles. Due to the extremely labour
intensive nature of the sleeve design this will be a strictly limited edition of 300 copies.
