Italian producer Lehar caused something of a stir online recently, after giving away his remix of Kollektiv Turmstrasse classic "Tristesse". Here he makes his debut on German deep house label Connaisseur. The Venice-based DJ/producer kicks things off with "XY", a shuffling, foreboding trip into woozy, delay-laden tech-house territory complete with subtle builds and horror-influenced chords. "Sargas" is equally as spooky, with ghostly textures and fear-ridden electronics riding an undulating late night groove. Longtime pal Mario Basanov provides the obligatory remix, turning "Sargas" into an inspired chunk of gently uplifting, melody-rich European deep house. It's almost the polar opposite of Lehar's original - in tone and texture - making for a striking revision.
