Blue Satellite’s latest EP Middle Class is packed with easy listening vocal house. Buy the five-track record in digital form on iTunes.
Marine styled blazers are a great choice when wanting to create a relaxed yet standout look. Combine with jeans and a basic white shirt as in the picture, add too much color and you’ll risk overdoing it. Oxford shirts will tone the outfit down while a classic dress shirt will make it more elegant.
Contemporary and talented female lyricist Azelia Banks has released an official video for the track 1991. Her debut album titled Broke With Expensive Taste is set to be released later this year, given her skyrocketing popularity she will probably name her second album a bit differently.
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.
Lane 8 is back with an outstanding house track that samples Dusty Springfield, Diana Ross, and dialogue from Pulp Fiction. Play it loud for Saturday!
Craving new sneakers? Well have a look at these burgundy ones from the Adidas Original Campus 80s collection. The suede shoe is part of an exclusive Japan Pack which are made in collaboration with sneaker specialist Mita.
The new Ep titled Happiness by MAM, the UK house duo formed by Miguell Campbell and Matt Hugues, comes loaded with three classic soulful house tracks. It is already out on vinyl but for the electronic version you’ll have to wait a few more weeks.
Sunday is most often a day for dressing very casually. Here’s a new pair of vintage Nike sneakers that will better most relaxed ensembles. Try them for example with slim corduroy trousers and a vintage sweater or hoodie.
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.
Balearic house at its best, Claes Rosen presents a great tropical house track that reminds me of warm winds, scorching sun, racing clouds, and the magical turquoise Mediterranean.
While tempted to post clothes from the fresh autumn selection, i decided to resist and post something for summer instead. Snow white chinos are a definite summer item that work well with a range of colors, a classic alternative is to combine them with a marine striped jumper.
