GOGO Music unveils a soulful power-pack with 'DJ Christos pres. Ree Morris - Inside Of Me'. This astute song by highly talented singer and multi-instrumentalist Ree Morris is tested on countless gigs and has the potential to cross over, as the heavy rotation airplay it already received prior its release on South Africa's national radio-station Metro FM proves. The outing contains additional to the Main Mix, a beautiful Ralf GUM version, a driving Rocco mix, a deeper DJ Christos Magic Session Remix and a clever rework by Hood Natives.

Ree Morris was born in the late 80s in the beautiful city of Cape Town, where he spent most of his life and which definitely influenced his sunny music. He grew up in a very artistic surrounding which ever encouraged him to use his talents to their full potential, though it was initially his mom who put him behind the Piano at the age of five. The Piano became and stayed his forte and main instrument, but Ree also plays the drums, guitar and bass guitar. Musically he has been drawn towards the Jazz, Pop and Hip-Hop, until the day he met the legendary DJ Christos. Thanks to him Ree came in touch with Soulful House Music and fell in love with genre. Consequently he had to expand his broad repertoire recently to House Music, which is the direction he's taking his promising career now.

Christos is a South African Deep House legend and a bona fide pioneer of the style. Since the 80s, he has been linking up house-hungry communities from across the spectrum - black and white, local and international - via events and key DJ sets that have showcased his adamant belief in Soulful House. As a DJ, he has spread his unadulterated, Afro-centric groove far and wide, from 'Maritzburg to Miami', but it's arguably that as a promoter Christos has done more than anyone in advancing Deep House's cause across South Africa. As a mentor he's let his skills spin down to a new generation through ventures like the annual SA Music Conference or by endowing the right sound to talent like Ree Morris in his studio.

Ralf GUM comes up with a breathtaking remix that effortlessly allies various influences he's known and beloved in the music scene for more than two decades now. A chunk of soul in the instrumentation, a slight Afro House feel thanks to the drum and some Jazz elements grant his version of 'Inside Of Me' an enduring beauty.

French house supreme Rocco returns once more to GOGO Music to deliver, after his celebrated 'Hard Time For Lovers' release with Robert C. Walker in 2010 and his highly acclaimed 'All This Love For You' remix in 2008, one of his most classic works to date. Rocco wraps the vocals in a delightful played piano by Francois A and keeps his beat clean and straight for a maximum effect one the floor.

The Hood Natives add some extra Afro Soul to the release. The man behind Hood Natives, Sir LSG, is one of South Africa's most aspiring young artists, who lately scored with his GOGO Music release 'Sax In The City' a chart topper not only on download sites, but as well the number 1 in the dance chart of YFM, Johannesburg's prime Urban radio-station.

GOGO Music attests with this masterstroke release once again its clear-sighted and visionary maxim to delivering outstanding Soulful Music and at the same time present fresh talent to the scene.
