GATEKEEPER: EXOXO

Gatekeeper – Tree Drum ( Total Freedom Debt Stalking Version ) by Hippos In Tanks

Doom-disco duo Gatekeeper have teamed up with fellow Brooklyn sci-art neek, Tabor Robak, to revive ye olde tradition, known among some ancient consumer tribes as,  ’paying for music’. The new album Exo, out now on Hippos In Tanks [Nguzunguzu, Hype Williams etc], comes with a fully-explorable, video game-esque environment, designed by Robak (who has also created cyber worlds for Fatima Al-Qadiri) complete with radioactive trees, sulphurous lakes and abandoned industrial ruins that create a visual narrative for the music (and paint a neat digital realisation of post-Olympic Stratford).
