For many the Optimo DJs have the best taste on this side of the galaxy, so when they leant their support to «Den Haan», many followed with interest. What is «Den Haan»? They are an old-fashioned Scottish electro duo with apparent Hi NRGand Italo influences. The members, Creme de Menthe & Gardi according to their myspace, «got together from their love of Italo, Erin Gray and shiny white shoes» and went on to write dancefloor destroyers like Release the beast for the unknown imprint The courier of Death recs. They have now signed for both Dissident and Optimo.
