Its been a perfect summer day in Helsinki and as it is Friday evening I decided to post something with energy. Beautiful, minimalistic and joyful are adjectives that spring to mind when listening to Bristol based producer Crackazat’s tribal house track.
I love Tiger Of Sweden’s slim and short shirts, which are perfect for wearing over your jeans or chinos. Wearing shirts outside of your jeans is very comfortable and stylish providing you have a shirt which is made with that purpose in mind. Out of the normal darker shades I personally prefer midnight blue which is more versatile and yet often overlooked because of the more common black.
Jonas Rathsman out of French Express, has created a new mixtape full of deep house goodies. Take the opportunity to download it for free below.
Orange has been a great color this summer. Here is a nice pair of chinos by favorite brand Cheap Monday. A winning combination is to couple them with a sky blue shirt and cognac colored dress shoes.

Laidback nu-disco meant for summer. The tracks are built with samples from 80’s disco and 90’s R&B, featuring vocals of pop stars such as Cher, Mariah Carey, Brandy, and Aaliyah. ColeCo is a Canadian producer duo and this is their second Ep.
I can’t get enough of chinos in fresh colors. Filippa K is a favorite brand which rely on classic and functional Scandinavian design.
Cosmonauts most recent Top Ten-mixtape is packed to the rim with stand-out Nu Disco. The careful build up from slowhouse to faster dance makes this mix greater than the sum of its parts.
White shirts are appropriate for summer when you want to feel relaxed yet sharp. Yoox started their summer sale so there’s a lot on offer for fast movers. Get 20 % off for example from this shirt by Mauro Grifoni. Wear it with chinos of a perhaps burgundy or dark green tone.
Helsinki based Roberto Rodriguez album Dawn was released in the beginning of May. The album offers tracks ranging from downtempo electronica to deep house dance. Be sure to preview it below, for a purchase head on to Juno, iTunes, or Amazon.
Ryan Gosling shows off a summer trend with a PJ styled navy shirt. Perfect for lazy yet elegant summer days.
Italian DJ and producer LVCA gets remixed by paisano Scuola Furano. Nice energetic house track, the EP is available on Beatport also featuring remixes by Tuxxedo and Gabriell. I love the look of combining pastel green with white as in the Zara picture below. Eagle eye viewers have probably noticed that lechehelsinki’s background colour is in fact pastel green which may explain the affection.
One of the best DJ acts i ever witnessed was Osunlade at Flow Festival 2005 in Helsinki. His incredible tribal house drums filled a packed brick warehouse with jungle energy. Todd Terje has made a successful venture into tribal house with his latest remix of Bepi N’ Gali, very danceable, impossible to sit still with the intensive drumming.
Zara has a great line of chinos for this summer, my personal favorites are these light pink ones in cotton. Effortlessly stylish.
