For the upcoming issue I've been working on a profile of Gatekeeper, a couple of local dudes with major synthesizer fetishes who make horror-movie-soundtrack music. Specifically they're really into the early digital synths you can hear all over Italo disco and new wave and electronic body music.
Apparently their enthusiasm is infectious, because I'm really getting down with this new mix by Altair Nouveau. It works some Italo and dancier electro-pop angles and gets a little EBM-y for a while. And it's chock full of pure 80s synth tones.
