DJ Christos pres. Ree Morris - Inside Of Me
GOGO Music unveils a soulful power-pack with ‘DJ Christos pres. Ree Morris - Inside Of Me’. This astute song by highly talented singer and multi-instrumentalist Ree Morris is tested on countless gigs and has the potential to cross over, as the heavy rotation airplay it already received prior its release on South Africa’s national radio-station Metro FM proves. The outing contains additional to the Main Mix, a beautiful Ralf GUM version, a driving Rocco mix, a deeper DJ Christos Magic Session Remix and a clever rework by Hood Natives.

Ree Morris was born in the late 80ies in the beautiful city of Cape Town, where he spent most of his life and which definitely influenced his sunny music. He grew up in a very artistic surrounding which ever encouraged him to use his talents to their full potential, though it was initially his mom who put him behind the Piano at the age of five. The Piano became and stayed his forte and main instrument, but Ree also plays the drums, guitar and bass guitar. Musically he has been drawn towards the Jazz, Pop and Hip-Hop, until the day he met the legendary DJ Christos. Thanks to him Ree came in touch with Soulful House Music and fell in love with the genre. Consequently he had to expand his broad repertoire recently to House Music, which is the direction he’s taking his promising career now.

Christos is a South African Deep House legend and a bona fide pioneer of the style. Since the 80s, he has been linking up house-hungry communities from across the spectrum - black and white, local and international - via events and key DJ sets that have showcased his adamant belief in Soulful House. As a DJ, he has spread his unadulterated, Afro-centric groove far and wide, from ‘Maritzburg to Miami’, but it’s arguably that as a promoter Christos has done more than anyone in advancing Deep House’s cause across South Africa. As a mentor he’s let his skills spin down to a new generation through ventures like the annual SA Music Conference or by endowing the right sound to talent like Ree Morris in his studio.

Ralf GUM comes up with a breathtaking remix that effortlessly allies various influences he’s known and beloved in the music scene for more than two decades now. A chunk of soul in the instrumentation, a slight Afro House feel thanks to the drum and some Jazz elements grant his version of ‘Inside Of Me’ an enduring beauty.

French house supreme Rocco returns once more to GOGO Music to deliver, after his celebrated ‘Hard Time For Lovers’ release with Robert C. Walker in 2010 and his highly acclaimed ‘All This Love For You’ remix in 2008, one of his most classic works to date. Rocco wraps the vocals in a delightful played piano by Francois A and keeps his beat clean and straight for a maximum effect one the floor.

The Hood Natives add some extra Afro Soul to the release. The man behind Hood Natives, Sir LSG, is one of South Africa’s most aspiring young artists, who lately scored with his GOGO Music release ‘Sax In The City’ a chart topper not only on download sites, but as well the number 1 in the dance chart of YFM, Johannesburg’s prime Urban radio-station.

GOGO Music attests with this masterstroke release once again its clear-sighted and visionary maxim to delivering outstanding Soulful Music and at the same time present fresh talent to the scene.

DJ Christos pres. Ree Morris - Inside Of Me - GOGO 048

GOGO Music is out again!! This time with Dj Christos, a deep house legend from South Africa and Ree Morris from Cape Town, where he grew up in artistic ambient. The release represents the label style: great voice, amazing melodies, musical know how! The Main Mix has a classic house style with a percussive touch and jazzy melodies of piano and synths. More deep the Ralf GUM touch with a solid bassline and full of '80s synths. Deep piano melodies, a slamming groove that create a dark atmosphere... this is the Rocco's point of view! Christos Magic Session has an hot pad under the rhythm is perfect for listening situation, refined. Slamming bassline round under the deepest version of the release perfect for dancefloor and travel mind! Support from me and MaGmA. by Alessio Furia

GOGO MUSIC ROCKS AGAIN!
GOGO Music is at it again, making those legendary tunes that will guarantee maximum dance movements all over the world. This time around, our very own (proudly South African) DJ Christos and Hood Natives laced their production geniuses on a track titled ‘Inside of Me’ featuring Ree Morris. The DJ Christos Magic Session Remix is soulful to the absolute core. DJ Christos definitely holds the ground as the soulful, afro-centric, get-you-grooving from Maritzburg to Miami DJ with this remix. It has that nostalgic sound to it that will definitely take you back to the days when you first fell in love with house, but also at the same time take you to that current Sunday braai session with your peeps from your hood. Definitely soulful and real from the pioneer of house music in SA. Mind you, Christos has been in the game since the 80’s, so anything he touches turns into gold. And from the new school era, Hood Natives also laced their unique and deeply soulful production skills on the track. Their remix of this track is soulful with an afro-jazzy sound, which seems to be the latest interpretational style of the new era of local house music. And seeing Hood Natives (comprised of Sir LSG, DJ Fale, DJ Edge and DJ Squayi) have described themselves as a South African house music label with a deep, soulful signature sound, they stick to their word on this number, delivering nothing but a distinctively South African deep sound on the remix.

DJ Christos pres. Ree Morris - Inside Of Me - GOGO 048

GOGO returns with another South Africa's Soulful-House gem, "Inside of me" by DJ Christos Pres. Ree Morris is a fantastic soulful track provided with powerful remixes by Ralf GUM, Rocco and DJ Christos himself. The "Main mix" is an awesome soulful affair, with infectious keys, warm percussions, and funky bassline, enriched with an intense vocal performance by talented singer and multi-instrumentalist Ree Morris. Ralf GUM provides a beautiful remix, adding afro-house percussions and cool jazzy elements, while French house master Rocco delivers a deeper and more minimal remix, with clean solid beats and infectious piano chords. DJ Christos remix is a deeper rework of the Main mix with extra atmospheric pads that creates an infectious nighttime mood, and finally The Hood Natives offers a nice Afro-soul, groovy remix. by Franco Martinelli
