Releases / Ralf GUM feat. Joseph Junior & Ayanda Jiya - “Back To Love”

Ralf GUM feat. Joseph Junior & Ayanda Jiya - Back To Love
GOGO Music proudly “Back To Love” a stunning soulful stomper on which Ralf GUM brings together two of his favorite singers Joseph Junior and Ayanda Jiya for a superb duet.

German born and South Africa based Ralf GUM has been present in the House Music industry since the early 90's, and has built up an excellent reputation within the music industry thanks to his unique sound and consistent quality output. Always trying to pushing the envelope to complement the already established sound, he became known for his forward thinking productions and DJ sets alike. This new single release sees him delivering a catchy and classic soulful House anthem again, yet outstanding thanks to Ralf’s typical love for finer detail and production finesse.

Joseph Junior was born into an environment steeped in a deep musical appreciation. His childhood in South London to Nigeria then London again, played out to an eclectic soundtrack stretching from the likes of Africa’s own Miriam Makeba and Fela Kuti to Detroit's Motown to Northern Europe’s ABBA and beyond. Those early influences added to his musical schooling, as discovering artists like Anita Baker, George Benson, Coltrane and Ella did. With this strong foundation Joseph delighted us with many beautiful songs and goes from strength to strength lately, as he has released a string of collaborations with his usual production partner MAQman this year, too.

Ayanda Jiya was born in Klerksdorp, South Africa and is currently one of the hottest names in the countries’ RnB scene. In 2015 she was nominated for the Best RnB Single of the year by Metro FM and since then has released various further radio hits. To House Music lovers she’s mostly known thanks to her collaborations with Sir LSG “Sandcastle” and “Fly Away”, both part of LSG’s celebrated “Moving Circles” album released in 2017.

GOGO Music is proud to present “Back To Love”, an exceptional heartfelt song which is an excerpt of Ralf GUM’s forthcoming album due for release in the first month of 2019.

Ralf GUM ft Joseph Junior and Ayanda Jiya - Back To Love - GOGO Music

It's been a very long time since any track made such an instant impact on me; in fact it must have been about ten years ago. From the moment the promo dropped into my inbox yesterday all I've wanted to do is to tell the whole world about it. So what can you expect then? It's quite simply the most uplifting slice of soulful house music I've heard all year with amazing vocal performances from Joseph Junior and Ayanda Jiya who I think are performing together for the first time. The keyboards are a blend of rhodes and piano, the old school type, but crucially delivered in a tasteful understated manner that means they don't overpower the other elements. The rhythms have a slight Afro tinge to them and together with the funky bass they implore you to dance. I'm trying to find the right words to describe exactly how good this is and a few spring to mind; 'exceptional', 'amazing' or 'brilliant' might do it, but if I had just one word it would be 'perfect'. Oh and by the way, the last time I felt this good about a promo was when 'Kissing Strangers' first landed back in 2008. Available to pre-order now on Traxsource with a release date of 31st August. by Dean Serafini
