Bucie - Your Kiss
GOGO Music presents the “Your Kiss” by Bucie with a pivotal package including versions by Ralf GUM, DJ Christos, Andy Compton and Demor’s Original.

South African Bucie, the voice of the highly successful “Turn me on”, returns to GOGO Music with another more than sweet song entitled “Your Kiss”. The immensely talented young lady set the South African music scene ablaze with her sure-fire debut album “Rock Star” released in her home on Demor Music. Her “Turn me on” release with Black Coffee earlier this year was a major worldwide success which topped numerous download-charts and made it to various top compilations such as Defected’s “Ibiza 2009” CD. “Your Kiss” is taken from her second long-player outing, which just was released in South Africa and which will manifest her relevance in contemporary soulful music.

Ralf GUM is currently riding on a wave of successful releases and delivers another masterful rework for his own GOGO Music label just after hitting #1 in Traxsource’s download-charts once more together with Monique Bingham and their “Little W. 12th St.”. With a magic electronic touch he is taking the song into deeper territories and creates a unique floor-filler. The world-premier of his version took place at the legendary Mother of all Parties in Durban (South Africa) in July when Bucie entered the stage as a surprise act during Ralf’s DJ-set and set the 4000 ecstatic dancers into a complete frenzy.

DJ Christos is one of South Africa’s most respected house producers and has been named the Godfather of House music in his country. He launched his own label Katsaitis Music in 1999 and has been responsible for some of the most ground-breaking artists including Boom Shaka, the late Lebo Mathosa, Shana, Daw, Black Coffee and lately Culoe De Song. From behind the mixing desk, he’s produced some of the biggest tracks of the recent past, including the 2008 smash “Uyangichomela”. Katsaitis Music is as well the leading Dj agency for soulful and deep house acts in SA boasting top DJs like Vinny Da Vinci or Ralf GUM. Christos’ version is a sure-shot winner based on an afro influenced drum workout with spacey synths and solid baseline.

Andy Compton forms together with his wife Tweek “The Rurals” and has been perfecting a unique style of live elements melted with thumping electronic music. No one ever who listened to his sophisticated deep house sound expects that the picturesque pastures of Devonshire in England’s countryside can be home to such a distinctive sound. He released over 60 EPs and 10 long-players on his self-owned label, Peng and also has worked with Motown, Naked Music, EMI and Large Records amongst many others. Lately Andy Compton emerges primarily as a solo artist and scored a top hit with his “Above the sky” release featuring Chicago born and New York based singer and trumpeter Kafele. His version of “Your Kiss” is in the history of his beloved sound of jazzy beats laid over the sweetest soul drenched harmonies.

GOGO Music is a happy to intensify its collaboration with Katsaitis Music and Demor, where “Your Kiss” saw the day of light in its original form and to present an essential remix package of it to the worldwide audience now.

Bucie - Your Kiss - GOGO Music

Pick of the week!
"Your kiss" is a masterful follow up to the world wide smash "Turn me on", with the original being a supa smooth afro groover featuring sultry vocals by the one and only Bucie alongside warm keys. Ralf GUM is getting deep and hypnotic on his resistless tech-soul take fuelled with contagious chords, while DJ Christos goes interstellar on his version with lush keys and chords over a groovy afro-tribal drum beat. Finally Andy Compton servers an organic yet truly soulful rework with a gorgeous jazz-funk touch. by Michael Fossati

Bucie - Your Kiss - GOGO Music

Great release on GOGO Music after the big success of "Little W. 12th St.". The track is extremely refined with a sweet voice over the sounds... love for Bucie's vocals. The Ralf GUM mixes have a deeply touch with overall rhythm perfect for big dancefloor. The Christos mixes have a deeply touch too but with more tech flavour. Lovely percussion rhythm in the original mix with piano synths. For classic sounds lovers. Another big hit from the most important German label...for sure in top selling. by Alessio Furia

Bucie - Your Kiss - GOGO Music

Ralf GUM has an amazing ear for great music, this is definitely no exception, with the main man delivering a great vocal and instrumental mix himself. It's instantly hooky, the groovy bassline is so effective. Then the beautifully yet eery vocal rides the rhythm effortlessly, putting you in a trance. Great instrumentation and second to none production. Dj Christos serves up a more electronic sounding groove, equally as effective and pleasurable on the ear as the Boss's mixes, with the addition of some wicked drums and much deepness on his dub. To round off this great package Andy Compton injects some real soul in his Soul Jam mix that will please the likes of Timmy Regisford, Kevin Hedge, Danny Krivit and many many more. This is a great slice of soulful vocal house at its best and my pick of the tracks this month 10/10. by Craig Bartlett

DJ Times (USA)
Bucie - Your Kiss - GOGO Music

Check out these smooth, delicate, titillating vocals by Bucie. Ralf GUM’s mix brings an edgy flare with a rugged bass line and stylish, cascading keys. DJ Christos brings a bit of bounce to the party with some beefy stabs and chunky percussion. Andy Compton funks it up with a swinging bass line and some sweet, melodic keys. This is fresh, sparkling, classy, serious, soulful house at its best. by Shawn Christopher

Bucie - Your Kiss - GOGO Music

The most obvious thing that stands out when you first hear “Your Kiss” is how remarkably sweet Bucie’s voice is. The biggest dilemmas, as is often the case with releases on GOGO, is which version to play. In this instance, there’s a choice of mixes from Ralf GUM, DJ Christos, and Andy Compton of the Rurals along with the “Original”, “Dub” and “Instrumental”. I’ve been favouring the deep soulful vibe of “Andy Compton’s Soul Jam Mix” but that’s more a reflection on my taste rather than anything else. High quality as usual! by Dean Serafini

Ourhouse Magazine (UK)
Bucie - Your Kiss - GOGO Music

Release number 39 on the ever consistent GOGO Music label is as beautifully warm as any paradise island with white sand and crystal blue waters softly lapping at the beach. GOGO Music's head man Ralf GUM yet again turns on the style with a great vocal version drizzled with Bucie's sultry voice, but my personal favourite on here is Andy Compton's Soul mix which is just so utterly intoxicating. Add to this an instrumental mix from Ralf GUM, a dub and a vocal from DJ Christos as well as the original mix and you have the full compliment on this release. Big already for the likes of Louie Vega & Danny Krivit. by Dean Facer

Bucie - Your Kiss - GOGO Music

South African artist Bucie returns on GoGo Music with another smooth and intense soulful-house track titled "Your kiss". Ralf GUM mixes (Vocal and Instrumental) are awesome, deep and intense, with a groovy bassline and beautiful keys. DJ Christos provides a solid rework, adding hot synths to a driving, percussive groove, while Andy Compton delivers a pure soulful version with great melodic keys and funky bassline. Finally, the "Original mix" with its smooth, afro influenced percussive groove, warm keys and the beautiful Bucie's vocals, closes the package. by Franco Martinelli
