Review: The latest missive from Phonica's occasional Karakul imprint is a label debut from Lea Lisa, a French producer who has previously released on Wolf Music, Inner Balance and Mona Musique. She's in fine form on 'Keys of Life', a gorgeous, warming and musically expansive slab of classic deep house brilliance rich in mazy vibraphone solos, glassy-eyed piano riffs, hazy vocal samples and livewire synth-bass. Remixer Glenn Underground emphasises the latter element on his 'Esoteric Chicago' mix, reaching for spacey chords, jazz-flecked drum machine percussion and a stargazing deep house vibe. As you'd expect, the long-serving Chicago legend's accompanying dub is deeper, darker and more obviously sub-heavy, with plenty of special effects to enhance the druggy, late-night mood.

Review: Since making her debut two years ago, Lea Lisa has delivered a handful of quietly impressive EPs full of on-point deep house workouts. Here the French producer makes her Wolf Music label debut with what could be her strongest outing yet. "Something For The Dancers" is a deliciously melodious saunter through warm, heavily electronic deep house pastures rich in ear-catching motifs and eyes-closed piano solos, while "From Garage" sees her expertly joining the dots between rubbery nu-disco and late 80s, New York style garage-house. The accompanying remixes of "Something For The Dancers" are superb, too, with Kerri Chandler's bustling, near-perfect take on "dark" remix (which, of course, isn't dark at all but rather warm and immersive) just edging out the more hypnotic and synthetic Black Tone "reshape".
