"The winds of fortune have been good to Berlin's Mobilee label. In just two years and more than two dozen releases, Mobilee has established itself as an essential fixture among purveyors of advanced electronic dance music and a bulwark against the scene's steady downpour of soundalike records. Today Mobilee announces a new venture. To the leeward side of Mobilee lies Leena, established as a refuge for those like-minded souls blown Mobilee's way from places far afield. Leena gives Mobilee the freedom to work together with friends from the scene and with artists it has long respected, with no regard for sound, style or musical boundaries. To cut a long story short: Leena is Mobilee's outlet for guest appearances only! Leena 01 comes courtesy Holger Zilske, better known as the asteroid-zapping Smash TV, and the two tunes may surprise listeners expecting more of his brash, melodic dramatics. 'Enduro Disko' is a creepy-crawly portrait of suspended animation. A shuffling, succubus-like beat grips the head, starts it nodding, and slowly works its fingers down to hips, knees and feet. Slippery legato keys grease the mind with questionable intentions, and a seasick siren's call corkscrews its way deep into the dancer's soul. 'Aura' is no less possessed, reconfiguring classic deep house cadences into a horror-movie score filled with creaky floorboards and telltale hearts. Still, its lightness of touch -- delicate staccato arpeggios, tip-toeing syncopations -- keeps it from slipping into the gloom. It's simply a groover for those who like to flirt with the dark side, a sly smile that disappears into a Cheshire grin as the needle runs out."
