Ralf GUM - Kissing Strangers feat. Monique Bingham / If No Harm feat. Rachel Claudio (The Remixes)
GOGO Music is delighted to deliver this fat Ralf GUM remix EP including remixes of the soulful hit of 2008 ‘Kissing Strangers’ featuring Monique Bingham and of ‘If No Harm’ featuring Rachel Claudio. Gathering together an armada of remix-talents this is another ‘not-to-be-missed’ release for all heads.

‘Kissing Strangers’ with Monique Bingham on vocals should need no long introduction anymore, after it took the number spot 1 in Traxsource’s ‘Best of 2008’ chart. Originally taken from Ralf GUM’s long-player ‘Uniting Music’ the single release quickly stormed countless charts worldwide. The outstanding timeless vocal by Monique Bingham and production by Ralf GUM ensured that the song is now called a classic.

Switzerland’s DJ Le Roi delivers a great Soulful Mix of the tune and teamed up with Ray Jones to produce an amazing Dub Mix of it. Since they’ve uploaded the mix on their myspace pages, we received countless requests for this tune and finally here it is. Le Roi started in the 90’s to DJ on one of DK Browns parties at Atlantis in Basel. He rocked the house and from then on was booked in all of Basel’s most popular hot spots and is now the resident DJ at Atlantis. Producing has also become one of Le Roi’s passions, which he has now dedicated himself to, for the past 2 years. His first release was the smash hit "I Get Deep" with Roland Clark on Deeptown Music. Since then he had a variety of tracks and remixes on labels like Mn2S, Reelgroove or Foliage Records. The 22-years old producer and DJ, Ray Jones, released his very first productions on Deeptown Music in the beginning of the last year. By entering the Traxsource / Philly Groove remix contest in summer 2008, Ray's mixes of First Choice's "Love & Happiness" won immediately this competition and got a lot of support from many well-known DJ's. Shortly afterwards, he remixed Justin Michael's "Deep Is All I Know" on the prestigious US-label Soulfuric Deep.

Late 2008 GOGO Music presented in association with The GroundZero a ‚Global Producer’s Remix Contest’ for Ralf GUM’s track ‘If no Harm’ featuring Rachel Claudio on vocals.

Our favourite remix out of the contest was provided by German Roed Svensk. After Roed began producing music, he soon grabbed the attention of various labels and had his first release on Soulfunk Digital Records. A string of releases and remixes on labels such as Seamless, Reelgroove, Blacksoulmusic or Barcoda followed and established his distinctive soulful sound. Besides his own productions Roed Svensk works as well with Benny Pecoraio as East West Affair who released lately on Seamless. His ‘If No Harm’ remix is pure class in a classical soulful style.

The second remix of ‘If No Harm’ is a deep affair. It sees South American’s up- and coming DJ/ producer-team RyB teaming up with Ralf GUM. House and Lounge Dj Rafael Yapudjian from Sao Paulo and Bassist/Pianist/Guitarist Bispo from Santos composed their first works during the Brazilian Winter of 2005 and two months later recorded the first single for Building Records, one of the biggest Labels in Brazil and the force behind one of the greatest Dance Festivals in Latin America, "PlanetPop ". Since then RyB have been in high demand and the duo released a number of remixes. Especially the year 2008 saw them releasing many new songs with old friends in Europe and USA, such as Alfred Azzetto, Angelita Jimenez, Keith Thompson, Mustafa, Ralphski, Replay, Deep Josh, Jordan Rivera and many more. Next to the aforementioned mix together with GOGO Music’s Ralf GUM, RyB deliver a second remix, which is just as silky and deep.

Finally we added a broken beat version by an eclectic electronic music artist called DevoShun. It’s a completely different take on the soulful original, but as we at GOGO Music approach music with open ears and mind, we had to include it, as it’s simply an interesting version. DevoShun lives and works in Philadelphia, where he has done sound design for the Curio theatre-company for "Kafka's, The Trial" and "Road", as well as for Chosen dance-company "Look Ma No Feet" for DanceBOOM, Wilma Theatre.

We are sure that this release is set to do damage all around, as it provides something for everybody’s taste.

Ralf GUM - Kissing Strangers feat. Monique Bingham / If No Harm feat. Rachel Claudio (The Remixes)- GOGO 034

Pick of the Week!
The latest offering from GOGO Music brings you not to be missed remixes of two of their previous releases. Swiss DJ Le Roi takes on "Kissing strangers" by Ralf GUM (featuring singer Monique Bingham) and turns it into a soulfully groovin' affair featuring lovely jazz-funky flavors. For the dub, he teamed up with Ray Jones, with the result being a deep captivating affair featuring phat keys and chords. Ralf GUM's "If no harm" (featuring singer Rachel Claudio) comes in a great variety of remixes, with German Roed Svensk turning out a smoothly groovin', soulful yet funky version, while Ralf GUM teams up with South American team RyB to deliver a deep laidback interpretation. Rafael Yapudjian 's (one half of RyB) goes as deep as it gets while keeping it silky and smooth. Also included is an eclectic broken beat version by Devo Shun. by Michael Fossatti

Ralf GUM - Kissing Strangers feat. Monique Bingham / If No Harm feat. Rachel Claudio (The Remixes)- GOGO 034

Two of last year’s hot tunes receive a makeover for 2009 with “Kissing Strangers” and “If No Harm” the subject of some serious treatment. In their original forms both of these were high on my radar and these new versions are pretty damn hot too! “Kissing Strangers” with Monique Bingham on vocals was the house track of 2008 so it’s a brave move to remix it so soon. The challenge is taken up by DJ Le Roi and Ray Jones who deliver a “Soulful Remix” and “Deep Mix”. Of the two, I’m leaning towards the latter but it’s a close thing. I the case of “If No Harm” which features “Racghel Claudio” there are no fewer than nine mixes from Ralf himself, DevoShun, Rafael Yapudjian and Roed Svensk and again it’s difficult to pick out a clear favourite. I suspect that everyone who picked up the originals will be unable to resist these new remixes. by Dean Serafini

Ralf GUM - Kissing Strangers feat. Monique Bingham / If No Harm feat. Rachel Claudio (The Remixes)- GOGO 034

GOGO starts the 2009 with a strong remixes package of two of the label's hottest tracks of last year. "Kissing strangers" needs no presentation, it is a beautiful soulful gem with great vocals performed by Monique Bingham and both the remixes here re-fresh the original atmosphere. "If no harm" feat. Rachel Claudio is another GOGO gem and is provided in several remixes in the package. The Roed Svenks remix is a solid soulful affair with hot funky beats and infectious electric piano chords, Ralf GUM & RyB delivers a smoother rework with warm percussive grooves and infectious atmospheric pads, Rafael Yapudjian presents a sweet soulful remix, while DevoShun offers a tougher broken beats rework. by Franco Martinelli
