Complicated
Ralf GUM Main Instrumental (9:18)
GOGO Music starts the year with absolute hotness, as Ralf GUM feat. Kafele’s “Complicated” with remixes by Raw Artistic Soul, DJ Christos and Kafele is a surefire winner.

GOGO Music is following up a highly successful year 2009 in which all releases of GOGO Music hit the Top 10 sales charts on Traxsource.

There seems no stopping for Ralf GUM, as he just has another fantastic year in his career behind him. He played countless DJ gigs worldwide and had numerous highly successful releases in a row which all cemented Ralf’s standing at the top of his game. But Ralf does not rest on his laurels and steadily continues to put out exceptional songs. With “Complicated” he drops another outstanding recording that reflects his love for sexy tunes with astonishing freshness and prodigious deepness. This time he teamed up with Kafele, who he remixed already for the praised “Above the sky” release on his GOGO Music label. Ralf’s Main Mix is a musical rich pearl with the right vibe for the dance-floor or just pure listening pleasure.

Kafele, trumpeter, composer and producer, has been playing the trumpet for over 18 years. He attributes his love and appreciation for the art to his father who often listened to recordings of John Coltrane, Freddie Hubbard and Miles Davis among others. As a by-product of becoming a Chicago resident for about 7 years, Kafele was inundated with lively, upbeat house music. This musically enriched background provided the influences that helped cultivate his unique sound. On his release with Andy Compton on GOGO Music, he already proved that he is not only a top trumpeter, but as well a great vocalist. His heartfelt vocal-performance for “Complicated” testaments this again. Kafele was that much into the song that he did a remix of it and the result is lovely lounge version with a completely new brass hook.

Phil Kullmann aka Raw Artistic Soul makes his welcome return to GOGO Music with another massive remix work. It is almost exactly one year since he remixed “Black Coffee feat. Bucie - Turn me on” for the label, which became a worldwide club-hit and #3 in the “Best of 2009” top-sellers of the year on Traxsource. Phil once again shows his superb talent to deliver monster mixes with innovative sound-design. With ultra low baseline, very own chords and lots of spacey delays his remixes are made for the heads and impresses most on a big sound-system.

DJ Christos joins the label’s releases again and comes up with two addictive remixes, one in a classical style pleasing all the soulful lovers and the second one with more influences by his home country. Christos is one of the key figures in the house scene of South Africa. He is one of the leading DJs, won several South African Music awards, has a radio-show on the national radio-station Metro FM, runs the successful label Katsaitis Music and initiated with some companions the South African Music Conference. Next to his own productions he steadily helped new talent to emerge into the scene and for all this reasons is called Godfather of house music in his country.

GOGO Music, which was called “one of the hottest imprints around” by UK’s “Blues & Soul” and “the synonym with the best Deep House produced in Europe” by Chicago’s house music publication “5 Magazine”, blasts into the year 2010 with this absolute essential release.
