Whatever the Cologne DJ Lena Willikens pulls out of her bag, from contemporary dance music to krautrock B-sides, tends to sound like it's been salvaged from a scrap heap. Her debut EP, co-produced by Matias Aguayo, is dark but playful, modestly mid-fi but full of attitude.

Phantom Delia is a pretty dark trip, but it feels alive with ideas. Its boggy soundscapes can feel a bit congested at first, but unpacking the EP's ornate details reveals a playfulness that reflects the spirit, if not the range, of Willikens' more established DJ persona. All in all, as debut EPs go, Phantom Delia is pretty impressive.
