Many new talents in the field of folk and neo-folk such FINDLAY BROWN with Losing the Will to Survive or JAMIE WOON and his Wayfairing Stranger are here gathered to refresh our ears alongside with more experimented artists such as multi-instrumentalist and singer ANDREW BIRD with Imitosis taken from his critically acclaimed album Armchair Apocrypha or the 5-piece American neo-folk band MIDLAKE.
Their tune Roscoe (beyond the wizard sleeveâ€™s mix) with its contemporary grooves taken from their critically acclaimed album called â€šThe Trials of Van is its sound and construction a beautiful definition of what modern folk is all about. From CLARA HILL with About You to THIEF with down down over to A RACE OF ANGELS with Africa Displaced every artist give his personal meaning of the word Love. It is also interesting to see that ALEX DALLAS and JAZZANOVA experimented a bit more and chosen a few artists, who surprise us with a lesser known facet of their artistic personality.
Â Minimal-techno producer KALABRESE will astound more than one fan with the tune Hide taken from his latest album Rumpelzirkus featuring Reggae-Soul singer GUILLERMO SOHRYA and his soulful and deep voice. Hip-hop DJ ZANE LOWE from New-Zealand, who reached the status of superstar with his own radio show on BBC 1 in UK, reveals his soul and folky side through his band BREAKS CO-OP and a beautiful piece called Duet. Sonar Kollektivâ€™s first lady of dub, electro and house EVA BE completes the picture with a sublime acoustic version of her ballad She walks alone present on her recent full-length album Moving Without Travelling on Sonar Kollektivâ€™ dub and ragga sub-label Best Seven.
The guest appearance of singer/songwriter legend PAUL WELLER is the cherry on the cake. ALEX DALLAS and JAZZANOVA decided to pay homage to his career by releasing the beautiful ballad The Loved, where his voice finds the perfect harmony between light acoustic guitar riffs and flute melodies for the happiest end you could possibly think of.
