Releases / A GOGO Music Artist Sampler - “Spring Collection 06”


A GOGO Music Artist Sampler - Spring Collection 06
This hot EP sampler gives you an impression what the GOGO Music artists RAW ARTISTIC SOUL and Roberto De Carlo are up to next, plus it brings you two SUGAR BEAT productions which will be exclusive on this 12” release only.

With four very different styled tracks GOGO Music managed it again to offer you a complete rounded of release - the “Spring Collection 06” will surely suit you well.


We’re kicking off with Roberto De Carlo feat Joshua. “Magic Star” is the follow up to their last year’s slamming tune “Soulful things”. It is a very personal track to Roberto and Joshua, expressing their actual thoughts and feelings in the struggle of life. "Magic Star" will be one of the next singles on GOGO Music coming up with cheerful remixes.

RAW ARTISTIC SOUL deliver a ultra-cool funk track for the Winter Music Conference 2006 entitled “Miami Theme” - a silky brass- and guitar-fueled instrumental tune with a catchy and kicking baseline. It will get a full single release later this year including remixes and a new mix by RAW’s head Phil Kullmann, too. Miami Theme is also a first taste of the second and forthcoming RAW ARTISTIC SOUL album “You got rhythm too”.

Last but not least the “Spring Collection 06” sees our broken beat masters SUGAR BEAT debuting with own productions on GOGO Music, after their remarkable remix-works on various releases. On “Undone” they team up with poetry vocalist Jen from Washington DC. They bed her poem on a tricky-driving broken-beat track which surely will moove the heads. With “I’m a man” SUGAR BEAT comes up with a 70ties sounding dubtrack with rolling & ruling bassline and a digging hooktheme.

GOGO Music turned together with Knee Deep Recordings without any doubt into the most talked German housemusic label and consequently it's no surprise that its 'Miami Sampler' features an excellent showcase of some of the labels hottest artists. Exclusively featured is Roberto De Carlo's 'Magic Star' - a true gem for classic garage lovers with Joshua's soulful voice.

Ein Minisampler für den Frühling, bestehend aus vier Stücken, lässt Ralf GUM dieser Tage raus. Da ist Roberto De Carlo, der mit Vocals und beschwingten
Housegrooves schon mal Richtung Sommer marschiert. Jen & Sugar Beats
forcieren Nu Jazz, während Raw Artistic Soul mit ihrem funky House “Miami
Theme“ vorpreschen. Broken Sytles durch die Sugar Beats runden eine nette
Zusammenstellung ab. 5/5 by Carsten Becker (Germany)
A GOGO Music Artist Sampler - "Spring Collection 06" - GOGO 017

Es ist die siebzehnte Veröffentlichung im Katalog des Labels Gogo Music, das bereits seit über 4 Jahren durch qualitativen Output im House- und Brokenbeat-Sektor glänzt. Das mag vor allem daran liegen, dass Labelowner Ralf Gum neben einem soliden Artist-Roster ein ausgeprägtes Gespür für spannende und vielseitige Releases besitzt. Denn auch mit dieser Scheibe liefert das Label einen stattlichen V/A-Sampler ab, der mit vier Tracks gleich mehrere Stilrichtungen einschlägt. Los geht’s mit dem Track „Magic Star“ von Roberto De Carlo; neben einem gepflegten 4/4-Beat groovt ein profunder Live-Bass, begleitet von sanften Rhodes Sounds und pointierten Streichern, während die eingänglichen Vocals von Sänger Joshua Soulful-Herzen höher schlagen lassen. Feinste Deep House Kost! Das Highlight dieser EP jedoch findet sich auf der B-Seite wieder. Der „Miami Theme“ der RAW ARTISTIC SOUL-Band kommt im geschmeidigen Disco-Gewand, mit einem Heer aus Funk-Gitarren und Bläsern, brilliert aber vor allem durch sein raffiniertes Arrangement, das sich zur Mitte hin in einem gewaltigen Saxophon-Trompeten-Inferno entlädt; Hands in the air! Abgerundet werden beide Seiten jeweils von einer legeren Breakbeat-Nummer des GOGO-Trios SUGAR BEAT. by Sel
