Toni Sea & Ralf GUM - Beautiful
Ralf GUM’s back after various much acclaimed remixes, including works for Shaun Escoffery on Oyster, Jay Sinister on ATAL as well as for RAW ARTISTIC SOUL or Roberto De Carlo on his own GOGO Music imprint. This fresh headnodding and hippmoving outing entitled “Beautiful” once again prooves his distinctive ability for programming superior beats and his innate desire to make you dance. Sung by Toni Sea with a little help of Inaya Day on backgrounds this song is ready to become an anthem for all houselovers this year.

Toni Seawright made history when she became the first black woman to win the coveted crown and title of Miss Mississippi. She's appeared on "Arsenio Hall" with Freddie Jackson and Teena Marie, as well as with Stephanie Mills. Her Broadway credit includes "Street Corner Symphony." Internationally, Ms. Seawright appeared in George Faison's "Only For One Night" in Europe and was a featured performer in Melba Moore's One Woman Show. Now Toni’s beautiful voice hits the dancefloor for the first time and she’s coming up with so much love that this tune will surely light up your day long after this autumn.

Toni Sea & Ralf GUM - "Beautiful" - GOGO 015

GOGO Music remain as one of those hidden gem labels that continue to impress on a continual level through each and every release. This time around label chief Ralf GUM enlists in the vocal talents of Toni Sea - a new vocalist to my ears but one that I'll defnitely be looking out for in the future. The first mix takes shape through a slick yet rolling bassline and sweet guitar flicked stabs all providing the funky stable backbone for the dynamic vocals to do their job. The second mix from RAW ARTISTIC SOUL notches up the afro-rhumba sound, the beats flip and roll in a calypso style and the brass introduction & guitar hook provides much the same feel... imagine late nights in the sunshine and your half-way there! The final rework from Roberto De Carlo runs along smoothley using nice key melodies and a live plucked bassline whilst the sweet vocals shine through once more. by Russell Pollitt

The "Original mix" is a superb track with beautiful vocals, bouncing groove and a powerful rolling bassline. The beautiful Roberto De Carlo remix goes more funky and soulful, while the RAW ARTISTIC SOUL remix takes us into an emotional journey with african beats, great live instrumentation, horns riffs and sexy guitars, served in their own inimitable style. by Franco Martinelli

Toni Sea & Ralf GUM - "Beautiful" - GOGO 015

Beautiful is probably the perfect word to describe this great team work between GOGO Music labelhead Ralf GUM and the soulful singer Toni Sea. More then just beautiful is the superb selection of breath taking remixes that stand for the musical approach and quality of each new release on this label. Swiss still new and already very hot talked about Roberto De Carlo delivers the perfect mix for the classic house lovers with the extra part of soul while Cologne based Raw Artistic Soul do a superb broken beat version for all the Dennis Ferrer / MAW lovers in the house and finally Ralf GUM is in the team with CrisP doing an excellent bonus dub for the heads. Timeless! by Thomas Fath

:: "Ralf GUM teams up with Tony Sea to give us an uplifting vocal track, in its original form Ralf opts 4 an electro bass, bouncy keys & a vocal that cuts through the mix beautifully, with some cool synth & guitar riffs in there for good measure, the sound is unmistakably "gogo"! Signor De Carlo goes for the more "funky" soulful angle that brings out the song to its full capacity in its true form. With a top notch vocal performance by Madame Sea, Mr De Carlo spreads it over the track with ease, one for the more classier floors! As for the Raw Artist Soul mix, they start things of carnival style, with an original afro beat which is so refreshing after hearing so many tracks with the same "snare snare" afro drum beat formula. They then introduce us to a killer horn section with a riff that will stay in my head 4 a while and then "crash bang wallop" they bring the funk with sum sexy guitar and vocal stabs, add sum strings, haunting piano, sweet percussion & a beautiful horn solo "mmmm nice" my personal fave of the bunch !

:: "I’m liking it. Keep up the good work." Matteo Esse (Cosmonote Blue /Italy)

:: "Einfach genial! Flauschig, groovig und genau das richtige zum Abschluß des Sommers - wer da nicht mitwippen muß, der sollte sich schleunigst einen Termin beim Hausarzt holen!" Bernd Niedergesaess (RAadio42.com)
