Nuspirit Helsinki Our Favorite Things
- Words: Derek Beres
- Label: Backdrop
- XLR8R Rating: 7/10
Though it's been a while since we've heard from this collaboration between Finnish DJs and producers, it’s exciting to see them return, even if not with their own music. Our Favorite Things is a handpicked compilation of, well, as the title suggests, songs they really like. And if you are a fan of the jazz undertones in their tasteful electronic hybrids, chances are you’ll appreciate these 10 tracks. The opening marimba-and-vibraphone pairing of Aisha Duo on “Beneath an Evening Sky” is jaw-droppingly gorgeous. Things never really pick up after that, but rather maintain a serene, reflective pace–even Nuspirit’s electro-dub remix of Korpi Ensemble’s “A Moment of Love,” with its bandoneón and midtempo rhythm, is meditative.
