Buy on Apple Music | Spotify | Amazon | Traxsource | Beatport | Juno DownloadGOGO Music carries on with genuine songs, presenting you this time a production by the South African trio Nativeroots who are featuring Zano on vocals. The Original of "Taking Over The World", already causes stir on the motherlands dance-floors and is now ready to hit them worldwide with fresh remixes by the ever soulful Sean McCabe.
Nativeroots was formed by Mindlo and Essential-I in 2008 who were later joined by Vuky-J, all of them young producers, musicians and DJs from Pretoria, who came together with a vision of creating their unique sound comprising soulful sounds and African rhythms. The recognition and support from legends like DJ Christos and Vinny Da Vinci earned them a stable place in the music industry and most of their production already gained support by popular radio stations like Metro FM and YFM in South Africa. Thanks to their skills, they were as well chosen as presenters at the SAMC (Southern African Music Conference) in 2010 and 2011, where they shared their experiences and some of the techniques they use in the studio. As remixers they reworked songs of some of the world's leading house music producers including Abicah Soul, Black Coffee, Jamie Thinnes and Oskido.
Vocalist Zano must be counted beyond the best emerging from South Africa. His journey started when he moved to Pretoria to study music and where he met Shota. This meeting led to an opportunity in 2004 where DJ Black Coffee was looking for a vocalist for his song “Happiness” which he was producing for DJ Christos & Vinni Da Vinci’s (DJs @Work 4) compilation. After that he was called to work with many influential artists in SA’s music industry including the legendary late Lebo Mathosa. He became her backing vocalist and songwriter. In 2008 Zano released his critically-acclaimed single “Hello”. The song put Zano on people’s ears, eyes, and minds. Zano followed this up with a collaboration with Ralf GUM for “My Story”, which was the first appearance of him on GOGO Music and further built Zano’s brand as a prolific songwriter. Zano as well wrote and sang “Someday”, released on Black Coffee multi-award winning and platinum selling album “Home Brewed”.
UK based soulful darling Sean McCabe delivers the remix honours for “Taking Over The World”. At the age of 26, Sean has not only already produced and remixed for the prestigious King Street Sounds, Strictly Rhythm, Soul Heaven, and Z Records, but he has also played at the Soul Heaven’s 10th Anniversary at the Ministry of Sound and three times at the highly respected festival Southport Weekender. His remix-vita includes artists such as Donae’o, Dennis Ferrer, Quentin Harris, Stephanie Cooke, Todd Terry and Barbara Tucker to name a few. Now for the first time on GOGO Music he delivers once again one of his beloved classic soulful and Jersey old-school influenced workouts, which already made him a favourite for Tony Humphries, Joey Negro, Phil Asher and many more.
GOGO Music offers you with “Taking Over The World” again a song that will not only work the sophisticated dancefloor, but as well warm your heart and soul.
GOGO Music ... music it is and is it!
