Boomkat product review for:

gatekeeper - Optimus Maximus

Inspired by the ghoulish soundtracks of Goblin and the synthetic drama of John Carpenter, Kompakt's awesome new offshoot - Fright records - delivers a disco shocker from Gatekeeper (no, not the Bristol stepper!). 'Optimus Maximus' comes on collectors edition granite vinyl and is limited to only 300 copies for the world, just to heighten the want-ability factor, but these tracks really don't need dressing up as they brew a potent blend of darkside Italo with a demonic suspense made to fully grip the floor. While the arpeggiated basslines and drum machines are purely retro vintage, the dynamic synthlines and hi-end processing give this away as a modern production, but that's a large part of its spellbinding charm and should be considered a stone-cold essential for all darkside disco fiends. Big tip for fans of Antoni Maiovvi or Bronnt Industries Capital!
