HELSINKI COOLER VOL.2 > RELEASES
CYM002, released Dec 21, 2006
 
Helsinki Cooler vol. 2 presents insights into the multifaceted soundscape of Finnish electronica and nu jazz. The first volume of our Helsinki Cooler compilation series was a tribute to the flourishing forms of jazz flavoured electronica from already established Finnish artists, while the emphasis of Cooler vol. 2 is on presenting fresh stuff from the new generation. It's a tribute to the spirit of jazz, the spirit of openness.
This compilation highlights the personality of the new Cymbidium Records line-up: Saine, Happy-Go-Lucky and Sora - each creating their unique sound. Other artists on this compilation include Accu and Headphonics of Exogenic Music Group alongside Slow of Plastinka, Ran and D Fast.
The concept of Helsinki Cooler is about music with an ear for the past, an eye for the future and a heart for the flow. It´s about being inspired by Helsinki and loving every bit of it. It´s all in the mix.

Selected by Costi, supervised by Saine
Mastered by Liah Cheston at Chartmakers
Cover design by Taina Tirkkonen

Comments:
Steve Miller/Afterlife (UK): "This is some of the very best music I have heard in years."

Dj Bunuel, YLE (FI): "Helsinki Cooler vol.2 gives a small, but classy glimpse to the diversity of Helsinki. Everyday I´m as astonished."

Lauri Mannio, Basso (FI): " Hyvä levy niihin tilanteisiin, jolloin kaipaa oikeasti rauhoittavaa hetkeä kaiken stressin ja kiireen keskellä. Allekirjoittaneen alkuviikon ahdistus parani huomattavasti tämän levyn parissa."
