Ralf GUM - Uniting Summer EP
Germany’s deep house mainstay Ralf GUM continues his extraordinaire output with three more tracks taken from his masterpiece debut album “Uniting Music”.

This fascinating EP shows Ralf’s love to interlace South American rhythms into his expertly-produced music. The EP opens with the vocal track “Searching” featuring new and upcoming vocal talent Mike Avery from Chicago. The tough tribal beat and unique instrumentation under laying the heartfelt vocal ensures that all bodies will move to this tune. Next up you’ll get some fierce Latin carnival percussion in form of the instrumental track “Parabatu”, an uplifting dynamic summer track right for the peak time. This is a truly grooving piece of music of the highest caliber, with driving Latin baseline, cool Rhodes chords and topped by a lovely moog hook. Last but not least, you can enjoy the really pretty and dreamy “Parachute” with Oliver Leicht on flute is the perfect soundtrack for all terraces, pool parties and lounges. Completing the release are the instrumental version and bonus beat of “Searching” and the bonus beat of “Parabatu”.

Ralf GUM - Uniting Summer EP - GODIG 005

I always like the stuff that Ralf does, he has a great taste in music and knows what he wants when he goes into the studio. This EP is in fact one of his finest to date with some great percussion work and rhythms that are as infectious as the flu! Add to that some great vocal work and the job is done. Highly recommended, this should be played and enjoyed whenever and wherever possible as it is an EP that will fit in nicely with most situations. If I had to criticize one thing though Ralf it would be one of the synthesiser pad sounds in the track 'Searching', for me it spoils it but that is just my personal opinion!!! by David Colkett

The beats version is guaranteed to create a hypnotic feel on the dance floor.
