GOGO Music is extremely delighted to present the first single from Ralf GUM’s forthcoming album,”In My City”. It features Seattle-based soul sensation Portia Monique and is titled “Free (Is All I Wanna Be)”. After the huge success of Ralf GUM’s 2012 long-player, “Never Leaves You” (which was gold-awarded in South Africa and the best selling album of the year on Traxsource), this song will certainly increase the anticipation for GUM’s full-length.

That’s Mo Flava’s second offering featuring the hit singles: Idlozi, Invitation to Dance, Xivumba and, and, and… This compilation definitely showcases local house producers and their kick-ass talent.

When one thinks of local house producers, names such DeepHays, JosiChave, DJ Colastraw and Eltonnick don’t come to mind. After this compilation, I’d bet my last pizza slice that in a few years these names will be killing the airwaves and filling dance floors.

Besides the above mentioned hit singles, the tracks: We Going Higher, Ntombizodwa, Ndiyindoda, Ngibize Ngegama, Rhythm Sublime and For a Moment have the potential to be hits as well. They tell a story, speak to the soul and would make one “hlokoloza”.

The highlight of this album is DJ Shimza’s producing skills. He’s well known for his killer mixing skills but here he got a chance to show his house fans that he’s more than just a DJ. He’s “producer extraordinaire” in training.

Most importantly, much love to Mo Flava for unearthing and believing in local talent. “House music lives forever” Mo Flava.
