With a prolific surge of output in the past few years, Lady Blacktronika has firmly positioned herself in the upper-tier of US deep house producers, with her productions spreading in scope and landing in all sorts of places, like here on D'Julz's ever trusty Bass Culture imprint. She's in a refined and simmering mood here, with "Learn Me Baby" in particular keeping the mood bubbling just under the surface thanks to a brooding piano lick and distant vocal hits. "All In Vain" might be a livelier track but it's still thoroughly smart in its merging of distinct and feverish elements to create a dense but smoothly delivered peak time jam. "Lord Knows" is equally cunning in its ways, dropping in something like a classic house approach without losing that clamouring intensity.
