GOGO Music increases the pressure with their third single taken from Ralf Gum’s ‘Never Leaves You’ album. Ralf teams up again with queen of Soulful House, Monique Bingham to bring you their latest offering. The duo previously combined on soulful classics ‘Kissing Strangers’ as well as ‘Little W. 12th St.’ to critical acclaim.
They don’t disappoint either this time around. Their musically rich sound, showcases their undoubted prowess with ‘Take Me To My Love’, destined for future classic status.
Ralf Gum’s Main mix is the standout track, staying faithful and true to his renowned, quality sound. The simple yet beautifully synchronised percussions of the track gel perfectly with the sultry vocals Bingham lends to the track.
The track oozes rhythm in abundance. Its feel good vibe and sing-along vocals will go down well with fans of the genre and others. Expect this one to light up any set and keep the dance floors filled. His Stripped mix peels away some of the gloss off the track without compromising the aforementioned rhythmic qualities, focussing on Bingham’s soul-laden vocal talents which have an extremely soothing appeal.
The Raw Artistic Soul remixes shift it down a gear into a Deeper Tech groove, producing a sophisticated audio-sensual trip to match a minimalistic groove it exudes. These unique remixes masterfully play with the vocals, loops and breaks to create a sound that will have you nodding your head and tapping your feet. The vocal dub mix and minimal dub mix should find their rightful place amongst the warm up sets of many a Deep House maestro.
Louis Benedetti on the other hand gives a quite refreshing interpretation with his vocal mix. It’s a breath of fresh air which should appeal to a diverse group of House junkies with its seductively old school sound. His tech mash up will have the masses of dance fans filling up the dance floors in clubs across the country.
Monique Bingham rounds it all off with a venture into remixing of her own, giving us a chilled out jazz version of the track to kick back and relax to. It’s as musically astute as it is easy on the ear, I will definitely be lounging out to the sound of this tune for some time to come.
