Helsinki 78-82 is a project by Top Billin team members Flipper & Koobra, who’ve always been active and always been down to bring something new to the label. While Flipper is part of the Top Billin dj team and has always been the most high-flying of us, so no wonder the the new 12” is some musical bliss that’ll leave you feeling that good good. This is what we call Big City House music, when you’re cruising the streets at night with the top down - no words needed. In a manner Michael Mann would be proud of.
‘So Lifelike’ is a ‘sort of’ remake of Lifelike’s great ‘ So Electric (under permission)’, although this time it comes with vocals from our great Helsinki new wave partners Villa Nah. If you are in need of a new end-nighter, this is it. ‘Cruising’ is a tune full of that pumping big city feel with driving drums and great synth work that will get them ladies on the floor and will fit into those funky house / modern disco sets. We even have a video for it, but it’s a different kind of cruising than you think (no Al Pacino). Digital release will feature also one tough-thumping house monster titled ‘Project 2′.
We’ve been playing this since last summer and it’s been a staple at daytime radioshows where we come from and greatly welcomed by some of our top dj friends who’ve gotten it early (we know, unfair, but life is) like:
‘So Lifelike is the JAM’ – Diplo
‘So Lifelike is so great!’ – Nick Catchdubs, Fools Gold Records
‘This isn’t only a surprise but a true treat for the ears.” -Turntable Lab
