Ralf GUM feat. Omar - Love Core
GOGO Music proudly presents this single taken from Ralf GUM’s lauded album ‘In My City’. ‘Love Core’ features no one else than UK soul-don Omar, who impresses on this recording effortlessly with top form. Sir LSG steps up on the remix buttons.

Thanks to unique musical taste and a flawlessly consistent output, Ralf GUM became one of the world’s most popular house artists with a back catalogue that stands up against any of his peers. Due to consistent high quality Ralf has been nominated number one Afro House Artist mid of 2015 by Traxsource and can be found in their Top 20 listing of Soulful House Music Artists, too. This accolade confirmed once more Ralf’s standing within the House Music industry, just as his releases and DJ sets do.

Omar broke through to worldwide renown all the way back in 1991 with his first releases on the seminal Talkin' Loud label, and since going on to work with all manner of musical legends including a certain Stevie Wonder, Erykah Badu, Angie Stone, Syreeta Wright, Common, and Carleen Anderson. A former principal percussionist of the Kent Youth Orchestra and later graduate of the Guildhall School Of Music in London, Omar has now been making music for more than 25 years and is still just embarking on a new phase of his career, one that’s designed to bring him directly to a wider public than ever before.

Sir LSG is currently working on his debut album, but took time off to deliver a true rework of ‘Love Core’, which already let’s you get an idea what you can expect from his first long-player. He definitely is a talent with a real feel for a real song. Backed up with great trumpet work by Kafele, his mix takes you on a soulful journey letting the vocals shine as they should.

GOGO Music is pleased to present you with ‘Love Core’ an outing that will stand the test of time and which same time proofs how much meat Ralf GUM’s album ‘In My City’ contains … and we’re not done with it yet.

Ralf GUM feat. Omar - Love Core - GOGO 066

The latest single taken from Ralf GUM's ingenious and seminal third artist album 'In the city' is the marvelous 'love core' featuring UK soul-don Omar on vocals. 'Love core' is a masterly crafted soul infused gem fusing Omar's unmistakable deeply felt vocals with illustrious keys, grandiose horn section and enthralling rhythms. Sir LSG takes the song to the next level on his paramount interpretation laced with enchanting melodies and captivating afrocentric rhythms. Put differently, 'Love core' is sheer musical bliss, a soulful house music gem that will stand the test of time... by Mike Fossati

Ralf GUM feat. Omar - Love Core - GOGO 066

The end of a long winter is in sight, with the first green shoots of spring showing up in the form of “Love Core,” a charismatic and simple Soulful House gem from Ralf GUM and British vocalist Omar. Now resident in my hometown of Brighton, Omar is surely one of the most distinctive and underrated voices in Soul music. His 2013 single “The Man” should have been a global smash, in my opinion. However the record was criminally slept-on, mostly because its release coincided with the PR shit-storm surrounding part-time warbler and full-time “creepy uncle” Robin Thicke’s date-rape anthem “Blurred Lines.” Nobody can compete with that level of mediocrity. Anyway, back to the subject at hand. “Love Core” is straightforward enough song with floaty, shimmering chords and horn stabs riding a solid, unflashy beat. This is the environment in which Omar shines the most, laying down tight, percussive backing vocals, then opening up his voice for the life- affirming, catchy lead performance. South Africa’s Sir LSG provides the only remix, ushering the track into afro/jazz house territory, building a smooth new groove from the ground up. The package also includes instrumentals of both mixes and a beatless “Reprise” version, which is a rare and beautiful addition these days. Creative ’80s and ’90s DJs will know how useful “Reprise” versions are. Seriously, let’s just bring them and “Bonus Beats” back and forget about these stupid “Stems”. by Will Sumsuch

Ralf GUM feat. Omar - Love Core - GOGO 066

From his 2014 released ‘In My City’ album, Ralf GUM blessing us once more, along with Brit-Soul don Omar on the outstanding ‘Love Core’ as given a rework by Sir LSG. Sometimes you happen to listen to things which, altogether, sound like natural… Like an evidence! This is nothing but the proper of music cleverly thought and masterfully put together. Born from the reunion of talents who, despite their differences, manage to speak the same language. This is pretty much what to expect on this smooth joint by the likes of GOGO Music label head Ralf GUM and Omar Lye Fook MBE who, once again, makes proof of his ability to express himself in many different territories. South African producer Sir LSG, who’s currently putting the final touches to his upcoming album, subltly spicing up the whole with an Afro/Jazz feel along with Kafele Bandele on trumpet…by Frederic Messent
