Ahead of next Off The Record event at Platform, Glasgow on the 1st March, we spoke to Keith McIvor (JD Twitch) from Optimo about life in the music business...
Q: How did you get your start in music?
A: I started off by chance really. Knowing I had a lot of records I was asked to dj at a night in Edinburgh that went on to become very successful and next thing I knew that was what i was doing for a living. I had always wanted to work in music but had thought I'd probably get into it from working for a record label rather than as a performer.
Q: What is best thing about your work?
A: That my work is also my passion, being my own boss, getting to work on lots of great projects and going to lots of different places.
Q: Give us one tip for anyone looking to work in music...
