8/10 Brett Staff review, 29 October 2009
Kompakt's Michael Mayer and Jon Berry have a new label, Fright, which seems like it's going to be home to a new lot of synthy giallo-inspired horror geeks if Gatekeeper's 'Optimus Maximus' 12" is anything to go by. Packaged up in a hand-numbered (of 300) sleeve, this fancily marbled vinyl oozes melodramatic 80s futurism from every pore with ludicrous drum sounds programmed in the cheesiest of ways and married to crude vocal samples and hyperactive synth lines and breathy washes which constantly sound like they're threatening to force the tunes into a dodgy club remix of 'Enjoy the Silence'. It sounds absurd but it definitely works.. A guilty pleasure but most definitely a pleasure.
