Optimo's JD Twitch takes his DJing tools to David Shaw's 'Infected'

David Shaw, who has previously released under the name Siskid and Animal Machine, is due to release the first single from his upcoming new album, 'Infected' (a cover of the seminal song by The The, from their 1986 album of the same name), on March 5th.

As well as featuring the original, the single also features remixes from Max Pask (one half of Populette) and Optimo's JD Twitch, who turns in a sun-warped electro-pop version. You can listen to and download the latter below.

'Infected' by David Shaw & The Beat is released through Her Majesty's Ship on March 5th.

Optimo DJ all night upstairs at the Fred Perry Subsonic night at the Garage this Friday, 17th February.
