The Secret Love compilation series is going in it's eight year and sixth round by now. The highly acclaimed and succesfull collection has become somehow a landmark in an ever growing submergence of releases and an expansive back catalogue everyone can access to nowadays at a simple mouse click. The sixth installement of the Secret Love compilation sticks to the tried and tested formula of presenting the best between soul, pop and folk - from yesteryear to the current day. Sonar Kollektiv's A&R and renowed DJ Alex Barck and Adrian Hoenicke (of Finger Magazine fame) selected some outstanding 15 tunes that make this newest Secret Love maybe the best in the series so far.

Secret Love 6 continues where the five predecessors already set new standards. Collecting the best music that is floating around at the moment - be it new or old - but fitting one common denominator: quality pop music that will stand the test of time. Contributions by known artists like EL PERRO DEL MAR, CARIBOU, JORI HULKKONEN, TIM KNOL, TREMBLING BLUE STARS, CANTOMA mix with songs by newcomers like PRINCETON, LOVE INKS, PSYCHEMAGIK and LOOSE FIT. MARIO & VIDIS' cover version of BON IVER's "Re:Stacks" and "Dark Souls" by UNFORSCENE are two exclusive tracks only available on this compilation! Furthermore LUC COUSINEAUS "La Premiere Fois" from 1976 is featured on a compilation for the very first time.

"Valley Of Paradise" by British production duo PSYCHEMAGIK kicks off things smoothly. Can't do wrong with a David Crosby vocal contribution! Blending in seamlessly is "Half-Light" by TREMBLING BLUE STARS. A tale about a late november evening - which is more of an erotic reference than a seasonal theme. A pure love song comes up next with Dutch singer TIM KNOL's "Days" (the title track off his latest and highy recommended album). One of the real highlights of this compilation (at least when it comes to pop appeal) is delivered by Gotherburg's EL PERRO DEL MAR with her recent instant classic "Change Of Heart". Going back in time, to 1976 to be exact, is the next choice: "La Premiere Fois" is the title of this beautiful guitar hum-a-long by LUC COUSINEAU and actually really "the first time" it has been featured on a compilation. Always a good combination seems to be a LEXX remix of a Phil Mison aka CANTOMA laid back Cafe del Mar-induced slo mo house track ("Gambarra"). Tightly followed by another Balearic gem, “Tell Them” by Swedish band SECONDS is also one of those tunes you will always pack into your bag when you’re heading for the beach. Next up is an inclusion by newcomers LOVE INKS from Austin, Texas. "Leather Glove" is a sexy little tear jerker out of the textbook. A bit more uptempo is the next track by UNFORSCENE from the UK. "Dark Souls" is modern pop music at it's utter best (this exclusive track will also be available on the accompanying EP with an Alex Barck remix). The MANUEL TUR remix of LOOSE FIT's "Magnetise" takes a leap into future teretorries by building up something like a twisted symphony. California based outfit PRINCETON puts with "To The Alp"s another supertight pop song for us on display. When it comes to foreward thinking techno JORI HULKKONEN from Finland has been a quality guaranty for almost twenty years now. Here he throws in a melancholic ballad ("I Am Dead") that won't do good to anybody with a broken heart. More of a soothing love song follows with "Apostrophe" by JED AND LUCIA in a jaunty SHAWN LEE remix. The second big highlight of this compilations is "Melody Day" by CARIBOU in the infamous FOUR TET remix. This tune has been on heavy rotation on everybody's iPod with a decent taste in music over the last four years or so. To end this set MARIO & VIDIS contribute with an exclusive cover version of Bon Iver's "Re:Stacks".
