Helsinki 78-82 "Cruising"
If the steady stream of club heaters is any indication, the Top Billin collective appear to have Finland's party scene on lock. The latest offering comes from Helsinki 78-82, a new project from crew members Flipper and Koobra. The duo's self-titled EP marks a creative left turn of sorts for Top Billin, as the guys eschew heavy bass and B-more beats in favor of sunny synth disco. While most listeners will gobble up "So Lifelike," a vocal remake of Lifelike's choice 2007 electro tune "So Electric," we prefer "Cruising," as its warbling keys and relaxed vibe are the sonic equivalent of sucking on an Otter Pop in a July heat wave. It's just the thing to perk us up in the dead of winter.
