Black Coffee feat. Bucie - Turn Me On
GOGO Music starts the year with another dope and deep release. Continuing the liaison with South Africa and Katsaitis Music we present Black Coffee feat. Bucie and their title ‘Turn Me On’. Black Coffee is one of South Africa's most respected house music artists and no stranger to GOGO Music as he belongs to the group SHANA, which already stormed the charts with our last release ‘Uyangichomela’. As a DJ Black Coffee played in all South African top clubs and scooped a SAMA Award (South African Dance Music Award) for best dance album in 2006. To date his fame is by far not bordered to South Africa anymore, as he was for example chosen in 2006 and in 2007 to represent South Africa at the Red Bull academy in Barcelona, played numerous gigs in Europe and released on Real Tone Records.

For his ‘Turn Me On’ track he features singer and songwriter Bucie. Some artists work for years to earn the name diva and be considered rock stars. But there is the elite few who are born just that and new music name, Bucie, belongs to that select list. The immensely talented young lady, released her first album ‘Rock Star‘ on Demor Music (owned by SHANA’s A.T Sikhosana) and set the South African music scene ablaze with her sure-fire and aptly titled debut. The collaboration with Black Coffee just proves her outstanding vocal talent once more and gained her additional well earned recognition.

Remixes for ‘Turn me on’ are contributed by Raw Artistic Soul. After Phil Kullmann concentrated mainly on recording for upcoming releases last year, he delivers debonair deep versions, as only he can provide them. The ultra low end of his mix is flavoured with trademark spacey chords, toot toot flute, fierce percussion and claves. This is a more than promising return of one the scene’s favourite producers and gives us a preview on what’s to expect from him this year.

After GOGO Music’s extremely successful year 2008, including the taking of the top position in the sales charts of Traxsource with ‘Kissing Strangers’ by Ralf GUM feat. Monique Bingham, we don’t rest and are content to start 2009 with this special release. The Original Mix is already heavily played by Louie Vega and featured in his November and December radio mix. We are sure that the full release will make it to the cases of many more key players and every other tasteful DJ alike.

Black Coffee feat. Bucie - Turn me on - GOGO 033

Following on from a highly successful 2008, Ralf Gum's GOGO label shows us what to expect in 2009 with an absolutely gorgeous first release. Blackcoffee is a highly renowned DJ and producer hailing from South Africa, whilst singer and songwriter Bucie is also a highly recognised and respected singer from the same said country. The promo comes with mixes by Blackcoffee and Raw Artistic Soul. The Raw Artistic Soul mixes are great numbers, really deep and minimal whilst still maintaining a good balance of soul. There's some great woodwind playing on the Raw Artistic Soul vocal dub mix with some very African influenced percussion. The Blackcoffee remix also heads in a deep and minimal direction that builds up beautifully. But after all said and done, this release for souledUp is all about the Original mix. When you have a track so very good, so near to perfect, it's hard to better it by remixes. The BPM is just right, the chords are emotional, the track is deep, the lyrics soulful, the whole result simply wonderful! by Gareth Morgan

Blackcoffee feat. Bucie - Turn me on - GOGO 033

Following in the footsteps of this series of fine releases from Ralf GUM's GOGO imprint comes this sassy vocal by Bucie, and dare I say it but one listen and you could be hooked. 'The Original Mix' combines funky afro based rhythms and electric keys to great effect with the 'Blackcoffee Remix' providing a deeper alternative. The remaining 'Raw Artistic Soul' versions surpass their remit with an authentic journey into sound which does nothing except enhance Bucie's already noteworthy voice. by Greg Fenton

Blackcoffee feat. Bucie - Turn me on - GOGO 033

The label of 2008 gets the New Year off to another excellent start with this sure fire winner from Blackcoffee. With sensual vocals from the highly talented vocalist Bucie this is set to be a huge hit with all the soulful heads. The remixes come from Phil Kullman aka Raw Artistic Soul whose interpretations deliver on soul, depth and atmosphere. I can spout on for hours about this but those of you who normally pick up releases from this label would be foolish to turn your back on this one. It’s currently top of the Traxsource download chart and with good reason. Not to be missed! by Dean Searfini


M8 Mag (UK)
Blackcoffee feat. Bucie - Turn me on - GOGO 033

It’s about time to give Ralf GUM and his GOGO Music label some props as his latest releases and remixes have all been rather outstanding. So is this new offering from Blackcoffee, a top DJ & producer from South Africa who is also currently enjoying success with his group Shana. Vocals are being supplied by respected house diva Bucie who delivers a hooky, dreamy and sweet vocal. The Original is a soulful masterpiece in the making, percussive beats match perfectly with a groovy bassline, funky guitar parts and moody chords. On the remix we get a great set of mixes from inhouse mastermind Phil Kullmann aka Raw Artistic Soul who goes much deeper and comes up with great, spacey flute flavoured versions that will certainly fill any floor near you soon. And if that wasn’t enough you get a nice Blackcoffee Remix on top of it to round off a magnificent package. M8/M8 by Mannix

Blackcoffee feat. Bucie - Turn me on - GOGO 033

In the spotlight!
GoGo Music impressed us all through 2008, and their first release for the new year is no exception. "Turn me on" is courtesy of South Africa's Blackcoffee and features sweet vocals by Bucie over a deep and soulful yet fierce afro tinged groove that is enriched with marvelous chords - simply wonderful. On his remix, Blackcoffee takes the track to deeper grounds, giving it a slightly minimal feel, with the synth chords creating a mesmerizing vibe. The Raw Artistic Soul mixes go even deeper, spreading a hypnotic vibe created by a relentless groove and captivating synths, with the original African vibe of the track always shining through. by Michael Fossati

DJ Times (USA)
Blackcoffee feat. Bucie - Turn me on - GOGO 033

South Africa's Black Coffee and Bucie join forces, blending light tribal rhythms and soulful keys with Bucie’s sexy, sultry, seductive vocals. Raw Artistic add some exquisite edge with a heavier, darker bassline, luscious percussion and a late-night-dancefloor vibe. This is another hit-houser from GOGO.

Blackcoffee feat. Bucie - Turn me on - GOGO 033

GOGO Music meets South Africa once again and the result is another awesome deep-house release with an unique and esotic flavour. Blackcoffee is one of South Africa's most respected house music artists, while Bucie is a talented South Africa's singer and songwriter. The "Original mix" is an infectious deep track with a warm percussive groove, great keys, soft guitar and beautiful, relaxing vocals. The remix is provided by the genius of Raw Artistic Soul, he completely rebuilds the track adding fierce percussions, spacey chords and intense flute parts. by Franco Martinelli
