Ralf GUM feat. Akira Dee - Everything U R
GOGO Music head honcho Ralf GUM teams up with Akira Dee to deliver the heart felt track „Everything U R“. Akira is a native New Yorker born into a family of musicians and singers. Her older cousin, Solomon Roberts Jr., was the leader and only male singer of the legendary R&B / Funk band Skyy of Call Me, Let's celebrate, High and Skyy-Zoo fame. Her dad is a well known producer and keyboard player. Her brother Poison Pen (of Stronghold) is an up and coming underground rap artist signed to a subsidiary label of Universal. She's the little cousin of house music's own Inaya Day, who can be heard in the background together with Paris, who wrote the fine lyrics of „Everything U R“. Akira is also no stranger to the stage. She played the rolls of "Star to be" in "Annie" and "Evilene" in a New York production of "The Wiz". Like her cousin Inaya, Akira is deeply rooted in gospel music, erego, her inspirational lyrics on each of her house tunes. Keep an ear out for this young lady. She's going to make a lot of noise.

Ralf GUM and CrisP on production live-up to their reputation as Germany’s prime deep house producers and come up with 3 very contrasting mixes. While the Original is a beautiful deep and moody house gem, the Alternative mix is a pumping 13 minutes journey using real fresh sounds interdigitating perfectly. The Splendid Dub is a leg-shaking affair and surely will leave it’s mark on any dancefloor. Certainly another aureate release on the constantly rising GOGO Music label.

Ralf GUM feat. Akira Dee - Everything U R - GOGO 026

For the inspirational "Everything U R", Ralf GUM and his production partner CrisP team up with New York native Akira Dee who provides a passionate vocal performance over a deep'n'moody groove that is enriched with melodic keys and sweet percussion. The dub creates a hypnotic vibe by taking it to deeply rumblin' grounds, with irresistible keys leading the way for the thumpin' beats. The alternate mix is a 13 minute journey built around a relentless groove and wicked keys, with the vocals creating an intensve vibe - and there is an incredible break around the middle that will set a frenzy on the dancefloors.

Ralf GUM feat. Akira Dee - Everything U R - GOGO 026

Ralf GUM teams up with New York singer Akira Dee for his new release on GOGO. "Everything U R" is a beautiful deep track with a soulful vibe, the "Original Mix" has an infectious and sweet atmosphere, with solid beats, warm percussive groove, great keys and strings to support the inspired Akira's vocal performance. The "Alternative mix" is a pumpin' and groovy affair, a 13 minutes journey, driven by a powerful bassline and enriched with wicked keys, while the "Splendid dub" is a more hypnotic version for the dancefloor. by Franco Martinelli

Ralf GUM feat. Akira Dee - Everything U R - GOGO 026

It’s taken me a few weeks to fully appreciate all the subtleties of this moody production from Ralf GUM & CrisP. There are three versions to choose from including a 13-minute epic “Alternative Vocal”, which is a little punchier than the deep and smooth “Original”. The “Spendid Dub” though builds like an early 90s number from a rumbling bassline gradually injecting a variety of instruments but keeping the flavour especially deep. by Dean Serafini

Ralf GUM feat. Akira Dee - Everything U R - GOGO 026

Deutschlands Mr. soulful house hat wieder zugeschlagen. Ralf GUM hat sich Sängerin Akira Dee ins Studio geholt und den wunderbar warmen und groovy track „Everything U R“ produziert. Leidenschaftlich und dennoch sanft besingt die gebürtige New Yorkerin Akira Dee die Liebe und wird dabei von einem Background begleitet. Lockere bongos und ein weicher Beat umgeben die Vocals. Eine zarte Piano-Melodie gesellt sich dazu. Zudem hat Ralf Gum kürzlich gemeinsam mit seinem Studiopartner CrisP drei Remixe von Inaya Day meets Nativeson's „The way it was“ produziert. Beide Scheiben erscheinen bei GOGO Music und sind als Vinyl sowie Download zu haben. :: housefloor fazit ::
Mit den drei Remixen auf "Everything U R" gelingt es Ralf Gum, die romantischen Vocals ganz verschieden aufzumachen. Im Original gepaart mit sehr melodischem House, zeigt sich die „Splendid Dub“ version rhythmusorientierter und der „Alternative Mix“ kommt ganz melancholisch daher.
