The Finnish production duo TJH87 have been on our radar for a while now, particularly after hearing their delightful remix of Cazzette’s “Genius” and falling hard for the work their doing through their label Youth Control. We’re not alone either as the duo of Timo Juuti and Hector 87 have been getting attention from BBC Radio and publications like Mixmag and VIBE. And their tracks – particularly their single “Good Life” – has been getting play from DJs around the world.
Imagine our delight then when they offered to put together a Nordic Spotlight Mix for us and our readers. And what they gave us is as perfect as perfect could be. There’s a healthy smattering of their own music, classics from Chemical Brothers and Weval, and some exciting remixes of Hudson Mohawke and RÜFÜS DU SOL.
If that weren’t enough, they’re giving us the North American premiere of their latest single “Wait For Us,” which drops physically on August 19th! The pop-and-lock beat, big blowzy basslines, and dreamy atmosphere perfectly splits the difference between the early electro experiments of the ’80s and the current EDM scene. That’s a lot of music in one little post! We hope you can handle it.
