Haunting and hypnotic are adjectives that come to mind when listening to the latest track by Italian producers Luca C & Brigante. Love the xylophone beats together with Roisin Murphy’s loveable raspy voice.
COS is a upscale consumer fashion brand by Swedish clothing behemoth Hennes & Mauritz. Their green slim jeans feel like a serious contender when choosing a pair of colored trousers for this fall, easy to combine for both relaxed and smart purposes.
Peter Zohdy & Michael Senna are a Copenhagen based production duo probably more known for their works as solo artists. Their recent remix for The Cults modern classic Go Outside takes the charisma from the original and couples it with a slightly tropical house beat.
Heavy knitted cardigans are very practical and comfortable when the weather gets a bit rougher. Throw your cardigan over basically any shirt, rough denim and heavy knit go especially well together.
The purveyor of horizontal disco is back with an awesome mixtape for celebrating that summer isn’t over yet. Full of the usual goodies, starting with relaxed pop and then moving on to deeper house.

Schoffa is one of my definitive favorite Finnish fashion brands. They sell Italian manufactured shirts and ties under their own brand, with some cool sartorial accessories and a fast growing women’s line as well. Here is one of their great shirts featured in a thick bright blue stripe and a contrasting orange inside collar.
I love house with a strong 80’s feel, listen to Brooklyn based Walker & Royce’s latest track and discover what I mean. At the moment 80’s r&b reworks and samples seem to be very popular among dance music producers, and in their defense, the sounds do feel just right.
H&M have a lot of good things in stall for us this fall. If you would like to collect different items in this fall’s hot colors (burgundy, mustard, dark green, dark turquoise blue) H&M is probably the way to go. Here is a nice pair of slim Manchester trousers in a more secure and traditional color.
Venezuelan nu-disco producer Trujillo has brought Bernardo Risquez in for the vocals for his latest suave summer tune. Send Me Away will be featured on a V/A EP from Apersonal Music, available on vinyl from the 27th of August.
Jeffery West’s shoes and boots are always an inspiration, classically elegant with a pinch of punk. Here’s one of the coolest pairs of ankle boots for the fall, with Jeffery, you just can’t go wrong. Couple with light denim and a chambray shirt.
I remember hearing Moon Boots latest track Sugar for the first time a few weeks ago, but for some reason i just forgot to post about it. Anyway, here it is in all its smooth glory, Janet Jackson samples never sounded better.
Barbour jackets are great for various occasions. They seem to fit in basically anywhere, from swanky hotels and bars to the local inn on the countryside. Here is a cool jacket perfect for the fall, Barbour themselves call the style “refined motorcycling”. Steve McQueen was a Barbour man, need I say more?
Funny Heartbeat is the new track from Los Angeles based Kisses. The track fits perfectly with the summery mood that has been going on this week. If you haven’t heard their fantastic remix for Helsinki pop group Regina’s Haluan Sinut be sure to do so.
J.Lindeberg’s autumn collection is full of desirable items as one might expect. Here is a nice cashmere sweater in a suitably dark shade of green.
Ed Banger Records founder and owner, and somewhat legendary former Daft Punk manager Busy P has put together a mixtape to celebrate his gigs at Ibiza this summer. The mixtape is a great compilation of fresh electronic music and hip-hop, I’m impressed that he chose to include Sixteen by Rick Ross and André 3000 for the end of the tape.
Fall is soon around the corner and you’ll need to gear up with a warmer wardrobe. Here is a nice roughly knitted white sweater with a deep v-neck by Swedish fashion brand The Local Firm.
