Coinciding with Max D's long-delayed Boost and Will DiMaggio's "Fusion (Broadcast Mix)" (a contender for track of the summer), this 12-inch could get lost in the mix. Don't let it, as both sides prove Letkiewicz's sensibilities remain whetted. "Frequency Illusion" opens with a tough kick and hi-hat combo that brings to mind the spiky disco-punk patterns of DFA's remix of Le Tigre's "Deceptacon." The track quickly jumps into a heady new space, however, adding deft touches of chimes and bells that suggest a zooted mindstate, even as things chug along and gather steam.
"Number Games" moves deeper into that cloudy zone: sluggish, murky, strange. A subliminal, barely-there murmur propels the track. It never shakes the haze (an effect that brings to mind early Terekke) as it moves with queasy chords, only a steady ride cymbal keeping it grounded. It's an effective and mysterious track that will hopefully mean there's more to come from one of Letkiewicz's numerous aliases.
