GOGO Music increases the pressure with the third single taken from Ralf GUM's long player "Never Leaves You" to be released worldwide this September. When Monique Bingham and Ralf team up, the magic is inevitable. "Take Me To My Love" is no exception. Remixes are contributed by some of the industries most esteemed heavy-weight producers: Raw Artistic Soul, Louis Benedetti and completing the package, a sleek jazzy version remixed by Monique Bingham herself.

Ralf GUM's elevated sound has become instantly recognizable over the last two decades and has placed him among the creme de la creme of Deep and Soulful House producers worldwide. Ralf's first collaboration with Monique, "Kissing Strangers", became the biggest soulful house anthem of 2008 and nothing less than a timeless club-hit. But instead of repeating the winning formula of songs they did before, Ralf and Monique moved on to bring something totally fresh to the table. On "Take Me To My Love" Monique Bingham shows us once again why she is considered one of the best lyricists in the house music scene. Ralf GUM's sexy production with warm, expressive keys, embrace the rhythm driven vocal perfectly. Like a good wine, these two get better with time.

Since his first release on GOGO Music in 2004, Raw Artistic Soul has become more than just a part of the house music scene. He is now widely considered one of its leading producers, beloved for his consistently innovative and advanced offerings. Since his second album "You Got Rhythm too", which is abounded in Soul, he's only delivered a few remixes of a very carefully chosen projects. But with quality trumping quantity, his star has and will always burn brightly. In his mix of "Take Me to My Love" he has delivered a unique pearl of House Music with dubbed-out off beat keys as only he can deliver them.

Louis Benedetti makes his appreciated return to our stable after co-writing and remixing the 2010 smash hit "Lose My Worries". Renowned for his superb organic style and skilful arrangements, Louis adds an outstanding classic version which at the same time is very spacey and an edgy dub in the superb manner we have come to expect from him. Benedetti's talents, honed on Larry Levan sets at NYC's Paradise Garage, Tony Humphries at Zanzibar and Kiss Master Mix Radio shows, have steadily improved over the length of his stellar career in house.

The release is rounded out by Monique Bingham's first ever remix project. She takes the tune to a lovely Jazz-infused place, leaving space for the emotive vocal performance to seize center stage. This version is perfect for lounge sets or just listening.

This GOGO Music outing is already hotly anticipated in many parts of the world and was play-listed by most South African radio-stations immediately after being discovered on Ralf GUM's new album "Never Leaves You", out now in the Motherland. NYC legend Danny Krivit licensed it for his upcoming compilation after hearing it only once, long before it was ever release. "Take Me To My Love" has instant classic written all over it - we're sure this one will live on and on and on and on and on...
