Gatekeeper – “Serpent (Brenmar Club Mix)” (Stereogum Premiere)
As mentioned when posting the “Chains” video, Brooklyn-via-Chicago “horror disco” duo (and Games pals) Gatekeeper’s excellent Giza EP is a dark, dank, at times heavy industrial/club/italo disco-tinged collection. This remix of standout “Serpent” by NYC house producer/These Are Powers member Brenmar offers the intense original a little levity — less claustrophobic stomp, more icy dance choreography — without losing Gatekeeper’s spooky lost-in-the-funhouse vibe.

Giza is out 12/13 via Merok. The above image is a still from the forthcoming video for the track. Remember, Thunder Horse did a video for each song on Giza — they’ll be collected on a limited-edition VHS tape out via Hippos In Tanks.
