Boomkat Product Review:
Fresh out of Brainfeeder's box of tricks, five original tracks from The Gaslamp Killer, including some assistance from his buddies Gonjasufi, Computer Jay and Mophono. 'Death Gate' is a freakin' riot of styles, as to be expected from the hairbrained head behind much of Gonjasufi's 'A Sufi And A killer' and some of the most whacked-out mixtapes of the last few years for brilliant labels like Finders Keepers and Disques Corde. First up, 'Fun Over 100' is a short but satisfying fusion of natty machine beats and arabesque synth squiggles, while 'When I'm In Awe' takes Gonjasufi on an Ethio jazz-sampling trip to heady, hashish-fragranced psych zones. 'Carpool Dummy' goes on a screwy MPC chop-up mission with a bag of killah drum breaks and the EP's most developed cut 'Shattering Inner Journeys' brings Computer Jay into the fold for a fractal collage of exotic rhythms, chase scene synths and smoked-out dub FX.
