The prolific Jason Letkiewicz returns to his Steve Summers alias for a suite of post-apocalyptic jack tracks. Across labels like L.I.E.S., Future Times, Echovolt, Nation and Clone, Letkiewicz spent the last decade exploring dimensional rifts between techno, house, noise, ambient and more. After occupying nearly as many cities as monikers he’s landed in Chicago and on local outpost CLEAR.
Artificial Light launches the record with a barrage of razorsharp percussion, whirring electronics and spectral voices. A fitting score for a chase down the backstreets of some future megalopolis. The kicks on Red Melts Blue then slam through layers of carbonated synths and head first into ominous wind. After opening with a wall of howling noise The Lighter Sleeps plunges into a maelstrom, simultaneously urgent and uneasy. Sensing Space closes out the release like the soundtrack to an escape, a flight from anxiety to the unknown.
