Optimo Return for One Show with Aurora Halal

Tuesday 3rd October, 2017 9:30AM

Glaswegian dance floor innovators Optimo (JG Wilkes and JD Twitch) have announced they'll be returning to our shores for one show this November at Auckland's Whammy Bar! Beloved for their diverse, fun and boundary pushing DJ sets, the duo's Psyche Out mix was a key release of the 00s helping push the duo to worldwide acclaim. They'll be joined for the show by reknowned NYC producer, DJ, and visual artist Aurora Halal, brought to you again by Friendly Potential.

Friendly Potential: Optimo & Aurora Halal, Friday November 24th, Whammy Bar

Earlier this year, Optimo played one of the wildest sets we’ve ever seen. For over five hours Jonnie (JG Wilkes) and Keith (JD Twitch) turned Whammy Bar inside out, with some crazy, unforgettable music. It was a perfect storm: two of the most enigmatic figures in dance music, playing to a beautiful crowd who were just up for anything. We’re so happy to have the duo back in Auckland this November to do it all again.

Since their last visit, the duo has been busy. As well as continuing their hectic touring schedule, and releasing some insane stuff on Optimo Music and its imprints, Optimo celebrated their 20th Anniversary. They did so in their usual style - with a huge party featuring performers from legends like Nurse With Wound and Errorsmith, as well as new blood – including our second guest for the evening, Aurora Halal.


Aurora Halal is quickly becoming one of the most exciting names in electronic music worldwide. Her creativity is seemingly unlimited - from her hazy and metallic productions on Mutual Dreaming and Lovers Rock, to her back catalogue of raw videography and visual art, to her directing the renowned Brooklyn party series Mutual Dreaming. She also runs the Sustain-Release Festival – a festival that Avalon Emerson recently stated was one of the best she’s ever attended.
