Ralf GUM feat. Wunmi - Brother Like No Other
Ralf GUM is on a roll in 2008 and drops another supremely fantastic single on GOGO Music. With Wunmi on vocals and with a fat remix package including versions by Benny Pecoraio, Rufuss and Joyful Noise, this is a truly diverse release.

In its original form ‘Brother like no other’ is one of the few broken beat tunes on Ralf’s celebrated album ‘Uniting Music’. The serious percussion work and beat programming is supplemented by miraculous live instrumentation that suits Wunmi’s vocals perfectly. Mature music for mature people. The Ralf GUM Dubs are pure deep dance-floor delight. The ‘Ralf GUM Horn Dub’ uses a totally cut-up pattern of the horns from the ‘Original Main Mix’ which is absolutely memorable. The “Ralf GUM Minimized Dub” reduces the instrumentation, and concentrates on the ridiculous driving rhythm, but still is a mind-blowing and multi layered weapon. Intelligent rhythmic journeys for any occasion.

In the world of dance music, Wunmi is a one-off, an artist that effortlessly joins the dots between Nigeria's Afrobeat heritage, New York's house pedigree and London's jazz, broken beat and classic street sounds. During her career she worked with production heavyweights like Masters At Work, Seiji or Raw Artistic Soul. Wunmi finally released her first solo album A.L.A. in 2007. On “Brother like no other” she shows her soulful side without negating her African Roots.

Artists Rufuss and Joyful Noise are both hailing from the French Qalomota Records camp, a label and a band founded in 1998 by producer Thierry Colau and Dj Chris Thomas. For every member of the Qalomota crew music is a physical and spiritual experience where the beat is the foundation, and the melody, food for the soul. Rufuss and Joyful Noise are both following this formula in diametrically opposed ways. Joyful Noise delivers a fierce, slightly techie version which is a secret weapon for peak time or late night. Rufuss’ music will take you on a Segio Leone styled trip. His beats are organic and his instrumentation has written live-feel over it, including great flute solo and finding its climax in those very remindable Italo-western hook breaks. Finally German DJ/producer Benny Pecoraio delivers a fabulous deep US House version. His remix is the perfect interpretation for everybody looking for the classical styled 4 to the floor mix with great atmosphere.

GOGO Music is pleased to present you another undeniably awe-inspiring package with this Ralf GUM release. After putting out a string of acclaimed hit singles including ‘All this love for you’ and the future classic ‘Kissing Strangers’ plus a bunch of remix-works for e.g. Mn2S, Kapa or Foliage, ‘Brother like no other’ now lands on the global scene after it already rocked Ralf’s gigs on his South Africa tour lately in a big way.

Ralf GUM feat. Wunmi - Brother Like No Other - GOGO 031

I would put Ralf down as one of the artists of 2008, There are at least two of his releases this year that I just couldn’t bear to be without. This is another excellent release with far too many mixes to mention them all. Whilst I like the vocal versions it’s been the dubs that have really done the damage for me personally. In particular the “Ralf GUM Horn Dub” and “Ralf Gum Minimized Dub” are superb with rhythms that simply force you to dance. Brilliant! by Dean Serafini

Ralf GUM feat. Wunmi - Brother Like No Other - GOGO 031

Pick of the week!
The broken beat gem "Brother like no other" (lifted from Ralf GUM's highly acclaimed "Uniting Music" album) gets a full release, including a great variety of mixes to choose from. Featuring a passionate vocal by Wunmi, "Brother like no other" in its original form is all about the resistless, percussion driven broken beat and the marvelous horns. Ralf GUM himself provides two delightful deep house dubs built around an irresistible groove, with the 'Horn Dub' flipping the horns around and combining them with captivating chords, while the 'Minimized Dub' reduces the instrumentation for a more intense vibe. Joyful Noise goes deep and slightly techie for some serious late night / early morning action, while Rufuss gives the track an organic live feel complete with Italo western hook breaks. Finally we have Benny Pecoraio who presents a wonderful inspiring deep house interpretation. by Micheal Fossati

Ralf GUM feat. Wunmi - Brother Like No Other - GOGO 031

Ralf GUM's label GOGO has become a prominent name in the house music scene and have a catalogue of fine releases under their belt. They continue in fine form with 'Brother Like No Other' taken from Ralf's album, 'Uniting Music'. The package comes with a stomping nine different mixes, but we will concentrate on the original mix as well as mixes from Joyful Noise, Rufuss and Benny Pecoraio. The original mix is the same as from the album and is a lovley downtempo/broken beat type affair. The Joyful Noise mix sees the track going off in a harder and deeper direction for main room play in the early hours. The Rufuss mix is a brilliant take on the track, and has it's own slightly latin and spanish tinged flavour infused into it, complete with caracas.Benny Pecoraio supplies a lovely mix that flows well from start to finish and is superb. by Gareth Morgan

Wow, Mr. GUM brings us a whopping 9 versions of this, his newest single featuring the amazing vocal talents of Wunmi. Ralf himself enjoys laying down a few remix versions of the song as does Benny Pecoraio, Rufuss and Joyful Noise and I can't quite pinpoint which is the best one for me... have a close listen yourselves and let me know ok? by David Colkett
