Record Label: GOGO Music
GOGO Music presents the second single taken from Ralf GUM‘s forthcoming long-player ‘Never Leaves You’ featuring Oluhle singing an inspirational gospel tune in Zulu which is entitled ‘Linda’. The Original of the song already caused ample hype in South Africa since Ralf started to play it on his gigs there. It is now available rounded of with a lush rework by aspiring producer talent Da Capo.
Ralf GUM’s mission since the early 90’s Ralf’s sounds simple – bring Soul, Harmony & Groove to the hungry masses – from Europe to South America, Asia to Africa. He’s produced music with a bevy of international top artists such as Beady Belle, Inaya Day, Wunmi to name a few and worked for labels such as Tommy Boy, Defected and his own GOGO Music imprint, which is home as well to other celebrated artists as e.g. Raw Artistic Soul. Ralf’s first full length debut release, ‘Uniting Music’ garnered globally critical acclaim and spawned tunes that are nowadays considered classic, such as ‘All this love for you’ or Traxsource‘s ‘#1 House Single’ & ‘Biggest House Track of 2008’, the unforgettable ‘Kissing Strangers’. Ralf GUM recently emigrated from Germany to the world’s current hot-bed for Soulful House Music, South Africa and it would be a vast understatement to say that he looks back on a good year. Over the past months his popularity and the buzz surrounding him in his new home of choice reached almost explosive proportions, culminating in him being voted #6 in this years SA DJ Mag Top 100 poll.
Linda is an electrifying gospel house song – an emotional pleading to God through rhythm, melody and harmony to ask for sympathy and have mercy for the human conditions, the suffering, the vulnerable and daily problems which most people face. The song encourages people to be resilient and be patient because prayers will be answered and there is power in prayer. Produced in superior manner by Ralf GUM and yet another powerful vocal from Oluhle results in a deep and sexy tune, which is a truly precious follow up to ‘Fly Free’ on GOGO Music and which raises the suspense for Ralf GUM’s forthcoming album ‘Never Leaves You’.
