CURRENT: Jaakko Elno Kalevi – “Everything Nice” (Popcaan cover) [ft. Farao]

Jaako Elno Kalevi released his debut LP earlier this year, featuring the great “Hush Down.” But last month, Kalevi teamed up with Farao for what is perhaps the best thing he released this year, a cover of Jamaican dancehall artist Popcaan’s 2014 track “Everything Nice.” The duo maintain the original’s laid-back cool, but supplementing electronic flourishes to add their own personal touch. But more than anything, “Nice” succeeds by being glowingly optimistic, from Jamaica all the way to Finland.

Revisit Popcaan’s original version below.
