Rotation by Herp Albert is a stone cold Balearic classic that often gets picked up for the summertime archipelago boat parties or at a late morning after-party at a beach. It's also a staple of my summertime bar DJ sets. Mysterious production duo Trevor Deep Jr blends classic Chicago house into African percussive rhythms and moody soundscapes. Othaway captures the easy early evening hot summer spirit perfectly.
Jaakko Eino Kalevi is an ex Helsinki city tram driver who turned into the most exiting thing that's coming out of Finland musically. Currently touring with an excellent live band, Everything Nice captures his diverse melancholic modern pop sound. DJ Ender is an originator from the Helsinki scene and without a doubt one of the best DJs around. Zombie Tropicana is a track from his old band Hannulelauri.
Lil' Tony is the central character in the Helsinki nightlife underground. He's the man behind some of world's best clubs that Helsinki has on offer now, such as Kaiku and Ääniwalli. Checkpoint Charlie best represents the local underground house sound.
If you're in Helsinki, check out DJ Supersamuli on 11 June at Siltanen. Listen to him on Soundcloud.
