Inaya Day & Ralf GUM - Lose My Worries
Inaya Day and Ralf GUM are back on GOGO Music with this soulful outing including remixes by the MuthaFunkaz and Roberto De Carlo.

Inaya Day has just celebrated her 14th year in house music, and what a footprint she has made on dance floors worldwide. Yes, you've heard her voice on classics like the "Horny" track, „Nasty Girl“ or "Keep pushin" to name just two of her string of hit-singles. She had numerous Aria and Billboard top tens and is still going strong! Who knew that this card-carrying member of the Actor's Equity Association, groomed in church and musical theater, would become one of the most frequently heard voices on the Universes dance floors. The New York’s Diva is no stranger for GOGO Music fans since a while, as she already collaborated on “What I like”, “Try Me”, “Easy” and “The way it was” with Ralf GUM, who she calls her favourite producer in Europe.

Ralf GUM goes from strength to strength since a long time and is called a pioneer of house music thanks for his distinctive qualities in his exceptional productions and DJ-sets. He embarked on the development of his own record label GOGO Music in 2001, which meanwhile has become Germany’s, if not one of world’s most reputable house music labels. His last singles all made it to the top spot of various download-charts and he’s steadily touring for DJ performances in the best venues around the world, including his appreciated debut at Europe’s prime soulful dance festival “The Southport Weekender” earlier this year. He delivers four mixes of the gospel inspired “Lose My Worries” pulling all strings of his renowned studio skills to make you move on every imaginable occasion.

With a career span of more than 20 years and his famous studio work DJ Spen has to be called a legend in the house music industry. He began his career at the tender age of 13, producing mix shows for WEBB AM in Baltimore. His production talents lead him to Basement Boys Records in 1989. With the formation of The Basement Boys record label in 1994, Spen formed Jasper Street Company. With the Basement Boys and Jasper Street, he gained consistent commercial and dancefloor success, and became an in-demand remix producer. He has created mixes for some of clubland's biggest names, such as Diana Ross, Everything but the Girl, Ann Nesby, and Shaun Escoffery. Having reached his full potential with Basement Boys, Spen stepped out on his own and partnered with Gary Deane at Code Red Recordings in January 2004. He hasn’t stopped moving since! He has formed a new group called the MuthaFunkaz who contribute a skilful remix in their typical inspirational sound they become famous for to this release.

Roberto De Carlo released his first official remix under the project-name “Souldrops” in 2003. It was followed by his productions “Freedom” together with Inaya Day and “One Touch - Ready?!“ together with “The Soul Voice“ Colin Corvez Rich in 2004. It was the same year when GOGO Music released Roberto De Carlo’s remix of “Seek - Everafter”. The collaboration with GOGO Music ever since became closer and Roberto released 3 singles on this imprint since then, including the club-hit “Roberto De Carlo feat. Joshua - Soulful Things”. It was licensed to several compilations including the “Connected” series of Jay-J on Defected. For his funky remix of “Lose my worries” he teams up with the celebrated musician Simon Grey who lends his amazing keyboard skills to the project.

“Lose my worries” sees Inaya Day on top form and follows up Ralf’s single “Complicated” which featured Kafele and became one of the most acclaimed soulful house releases in 2010 so far.

Inaya Day & Ralf GUM - Lose My Worries - GOGO Music

These days, you may hear the constant praise for Dennis Ferrer, but there's another House hero on the horizon! Introducing Ralf GUM, who has already established his sound with mixes on Shana's "Uyangichomela", Monique Bingham's "Kissing Strangers" and the club anthem "Complicated" featuring Kafele. Well known by every reputable DJ, Ralf GUM is slowly becoming the next household name... And "Lose My Worries" is nothing short of a dancefloor anthem! Ralf's Main Mix leads the way (and rightly so) with a feel good full-on vocal arrangement courtesy of Inaya Day, accompanied by a FULL musical production. If you like the clubby-dubby style, reach for Ralf's Alternative Vocal or Dub mixes for that infectious head-noddin'/foot tappin' flavor. Or maybe you like the "inspirational" style of uplifting melody: then the Muthafunkaz mix was made for you. Instrumental versions are included on all of the above, along with a "Classic Mix" courtesy of Roberto De Carlo, rounding out a magnificent seven mixes in all! I tell you what - if I had to rate this project like a movie, then "Lose My Worries" would get a stellar FIVE STARS from me! by DJ Lil John

Inaya Day & Ralf GUM - Lose My Worries - GOGO Music

Pick of the week!
The hot summertime may be offer, but dance floors will be set on fire and people sweating for sure as soon as this marvelous tune is played. Songstress Inaya Day and producer/DJ Ralf GUM team up for "Lose my worries", an uplifting production full of luscious melodies and deeply felt vocals perfectly arranged over a relentlessly groovin' backdrop. The 'Alternative Vocal' and 'Dub' take the track to deeper grounds, with the spacy synths creating a hypnotic feel. DJ Spen's The MuthaFunkaz add their distinctive inspirational funktified touch to the track, while Roberto De Carlo contributes an old skool flavored remixes with keys courtesy of Simon Grey. by Michael Fossati

Inaya Day & Ralf GUM - Lose My Worries - GOGO Music

Another great release on GOGO Music. Inaya Day is one of the best voice in the House scene, Ralf GUM is one of the best producer in the House scene. What will be the result? The Ralf GUM Main mix have a classic style based on a great bass and pad melodies. Amazing synth! A slamming bass on the MuthaFunkaz Mix, with a good funky guitar and hammond. Deep, dark, and full of psycadelic synth the Ralf GUM Dub. Travel mind. The Roberto De Carlo`s mix is full of 80's flavour... the bassline, the synth, amazing groove and energy. The Ralf GUM Alternative Vocal is a good mix between the Main Mix and Dub. Working great! Useful as always the instrumental versions. by Alessio Furia

Inaya Day & Ralf GUM - Lose My Worries - GOGO Music

Given that Ralf & Monique Bingham's Little W.12th Street was one of THE tunes of last year for me, this collab' with Inaya had to get a mention. Not sure it's quite up there with that tune (few are) but it's still pretty damn good, and this is coming from me who I'll admit hasn't been feeling the soulful stuff so much lately…There's about 342 mixes (well all right, seven) so not gonna go into all of 'em, suffice to say the Muthafunkaz' rub is the one for me and it's already down for a spin on the next TIWWD Cloudcast (coming in next few days, not in eight weeks like last time) so don't forget to tune in for yourself to hear it!

Inaya Day and Ralf GUM team up again and providesanother soulful gem titled "Lose my worries" on Ralf's own label GOGO Music. The "Original mix" is an awesome, uplifting soulful tune, while Ralf's Alternative Vocal and Dub are deeper affairs. On remix duty we have Roberto De Carlo who turns out an intense old school influenced rework and DJ Spen who provides an irresistible funky flavoured remix. by Franco Martinelli

Inaya Day & Ralf GUM - Lose My Worries - GOGO Music

By the time I write this review the mentioned track has just stepped up to the top position of the Traxsource sales chart which is a clear sign that outstanding music is on the fast lane in general. We neither need to introduce German house don Ralf GUM nor vocal diva Inaya Day to any of you, so let’s take a quick look at the track itself which can best be described as a superb soulful uplifting offering. Ralf GUM’s Main Mix will be a Soul Heaven favourite as great keys match with traditional Ralf GUM beats, a warm funky bassline and Inaya’s timeless vocal. Speaking of funky bass, this is what it’s all about with DJ Spen & The Muthafunkaz’ great outing-that bassline must really be one of the funkiest in ages! The next version comes from long time protégé Roberto De Carlo who comes up with another soulful live instrument driven mix. Finally Ralf’s Dub and Alternate Vocal are deeper, more reduced versions that complete a huge package. I like! by Mannix
