Although he's been working with Bookworms under the Confused House banner and Ron Morelli on the Two Dogs In A House Project, The Outermaze is the first full solo transmission we've seen from Jason Letkiewicz's Steve Summers moniker for almost year, and it marks something of a rebirth for the producer. Gone is the Chicago-inspired jack, to be replaced with a bold take on hardware techno, filled with sinister synth textures swirling in the void; "Call of the Wild" pairs its touch rhythms with a belching bass synth that sounds like a grizzly bear, while "New Surroundings" utilises the kind of sharp, ragged acid-inspired synths that nevertheless sound strangely melodic. "The Outermaze" is the real killer however, with ragged percussion and discordant keys bristling over a pulsating bassline. We're fans of pretty much anything L.I.E.S. at Juno HQ, but this record is something quite special indeed.
