Smoke Notes

The ‘Secret Love’ compilations have always been about delivering a very personal vision of what folk music is – and for the 4th volume in their eclectic series, Jazzanova – who are joined for ‘Secret Love 4’ by Swiss DJ, producer & Drumpoet Community labelowner Alex Dallas – face the same beautiful challenge: defining what could fairly be considered “folk music”.
With ‘Secret Love 4’, Alex Dallas & Jazzanova present various collected artists that all share the belief that Folk Music is a genre that transcends every predefined category. Folk music refers to a certain spirit – a particular way of understanding & feeling the world around us – & this definition linking the concept of folk & the one of soul music binds every song found here.
After all, the tracklist has been compiled as if ‘Secret Love 4’ were a mixtape to catch the heart of someone you love…
From the laidback & soulful ‘Sailboats’ from The Lawries, which opens the album, to a track by Midlake, from an album praised as one of the best of ’06 by the likes of Uncut, Mojo, Q & NME; from the beautiful ‘Duet’ by our very own Breaks Co-Op to the classy German chanteuse Clara Hill; from an unlikely pairing of a minimal techno producer {Kalabrese} & a reggae-soul singer {Guillermo Sohrya}, to Sonar Kollektiv’s first lady of dub, electro & house, Eva Be, ‘Secret Love 4’ is an eclectic ride.
The cherry on the heart-shaped cake is the guest appearance of singer/songwriter/genius Paul Weller.
The trad-rock nature of his music influenced & keep on influencing most of the artists & songwriters of the new folk era. Alex Dallas & Jazzanova decided to pay hommage to his career by releasing the beautiful ballad ‘The Loved’, where his voice finds the perfect harmony between light acoustic guitar riffs & flute melodies, for the happiest end you could possibly think of.
Four volumes into a series which doubters couldn’t see working in the first place & Sonar Kollektiv have proved the exception to the rule: sequels CAN be better than the originals! This selection of 16 pearlers just goes to prove that very point.
So once more we owe our thanks to those lovely Jazzanova fellows, who have gathered together a collection to refresh our ears, to redefine what we see & hear as folk music, & most of all, to encourage us to engage in this music we all love…
