ALPHABETS Let’s jazz things up – We Jazz vinyl pop-up opens in Glasshouse HelsinkiBy Glasshouse Helsinki Part of Glasshouse Helsinki’s mission is to connect the different genres of art and design. The latest addition to the Aleksanterinkatu store is a We Jazz vinyl pop-up. We Jazz main man Matti Nives is as excited about the visit as we are. “When I first heard about Glasshouse Helsinki and the idea that something as uncommercial as this will be opened in such a central location, I almost did not believe it. Now we are happy to be a part of it”, he says. "There are many records that cannot be bought anywhere else in Helsinki."What is the pop-up like? Not only jazz. Matti Nives tells us that the curated selection of records is “like a postcard” from the We Jazz Records main store in Vallila. “It is a selection of a few hundred records, we made it compact and high-class. There are many records that cannot be bought anywhere else in Helsinki”, he decribes the pop-up store. As We Jazz is also a record label, Nives says that the collection naturally features records from the label’s own artists.Matti’s hot tip from the pop-up store? The records from Analog Africa label. “It is something a little different, like African folk music cumbia for example. And the records have great liner notes ”, he says.
