It's about the soulful things in life!
This fundamental maxim of Roberto De Carlo takes place in all parts of his life and work. His house-sound touched by Soul, Jazz and Latino offers him a good possibility to express his feelings. Roberto started to produce in the year 2000 in his own RDC-Studios. Soon he worked in several projects and with different musicians. Always aiming for highest quality his first remix under the project-name "Souldrops" was released on the top-label Purple Music in 2003. Followed by own productions under different pseudonyms in 2004, including Freedom together with the soul-diva from Brooklyn Inaya Day or the first One Touch - Ready?! together with tColin Corvez Rich from the Peppermint Jam imprint. The same year GOGO Music presented Roberto De Carlo's remix of "Seek - Everafter".

Putting all his South-Italian temperament into his prime vocation, Roberto De Carlo developed an unmistakable sound impudent quickly and now is ready to lift of with the first release under his real name. Together with Joshua on vocals "Soulful things" was chosen as his first single, simply because he and we are absolutely sure that this song will move your body while touching your soul.



RELEASE DETAILS


Roberto De Carlo's Original Mix is best New Generation Soulful House Music, including fine live instrumentation with Acoustic Guitar, E-Guitar, Rhodes and a great bubbling baseline. It easily catches everybody with its lovely vocal hook and will be welcome on the bigger floors as well as in every lounge set.

Roberto De Carlo ft. Joshua - "Soulful things" - GOGO 013

Soulful Things is a beautiful track laced with live instrumentation acoustic guitars and a real hooky vocal supplied by Joshua who I might add sound%u2019s alot like Stevie Wonder. There are 3 great mixes all excellent and keeping on the credible side of house music, but my love lies with Ralf GUM & CrisP's lost in delay mix. It%u2019s beautiful house music made from the soul top marks.

Roberto De Carlo ft. Joshua - "Soulful things" - GOGO 013

The long awaited production of Swiss Dj and producer is finally out on GOGO Music and available in the stores now. Signore De Carlo shows once again a hot improvement of his production skills and delivers a soulful monster with the voice of newcomer Joshua. His original version is filled with smooth funk and a high quality contribution to the classic US garage sound. Remixes are courtesy of Ralf GUM & CrisP as well as from German youngster Benni Pecoraio, who adds once again a hot underground feeling to his 'Bless the funk' remix. Ralf GUM & CrisP go for a laidback reconstruction and obviously not just regarding the remix name 'Lost in delay' - a HOT package!

Three mixes to tickle the tastebuds from German label GOGO Music. The Original combines full instrumentation underneath the soulful melodies of Joshua, whilst on the flip Benny Pecoraio works the dub and label owner Ralf GUM takes an altogether deeper route. A solid package and well worth a listen.

Roberto De Carlo ft. Joshua - "Soulful things" - GOGO 013

"Soulful Things" er titlen p%uFFFD Roberto De Carlo's nyeste single udspil og det forpligter. Men den italienske wonder-boy levere varen med en omgang super opl%uFFFDftende soul-house.
Roberto De Carlo startede karrieren i %uFFFDr 2000 og har allerede udgivet plader p%uFFFD Purple Music, remixet Seek og arbejdet med sangerinden Inaya Day.
12' "Soulful Things" er smuk live instrumentering inklusiv akustiks guitar, rhodes og en delikat bas gang. Henover har du Joshuas sublime vokal og hvis det ikke er nok finder du remix fra Ralf GUM og Benny Pecoraio.
"Soulful Things" er kolossalt catchy og fra f%uFFFDrste sekund er med p%uFFFD. Det er varmt, dybt og gl%uFFFDdelig house fra en ung mand som vi nok skal komme til, at h%uFFFDre mere til.
Forel%uFFFDbigt kan han nydes med denne 12' som soulportal giver 5/5 stjerner.

Der ausgesprochen sympatische Schweizer Roberto De Carlo ist mittlerweile kein unbeschriebenes Blatt mehr in der Housemusicszene, und nach seinen Erfolgen auf Purple Music, sowie Remixes f%uFFFDr GOGO Music, war es nur eine Frage der Zeit, wann eine Bombe wie die vorliegende Single erscheinen w%uFFFDrde. Mit der Neuentdeckung Joshua, als S%uFFFDnger am Start, gibt sich Signore de Carlo enorm US-lastig und %uFFFDberzeugt mit schweizer Understatement sowie New Yorker Oldschool Qualit%uFFFDt. Neben dem oberdicken Originalmix darf man sich an einem etwas relaxteren und trippigeren Remix von Ralf GUM, CrisP sowie einem M%uFFFDrderdub eines weiteren Airport/Studio DJs, Benni Pecoraio, bei dem man sich immer wieder fragen mu%uFFFD, wie er es schafft neben seinem Studium derartige musikalische Kreativit%uFFFDt zu zeigen, erfreuen. Pflichtkauf dieses Vorsommers!
