BROTHER LIKE NO OTHER

ralf gum with an excellent new outing on his gogo music label!!
Ralf GUM is on a roll in 2008 and drops another supremely fantastic single on GOGO Music. With Wunmi on vocals and with a fat remix package including versions by Benny Pecoraio, Rufuss and Joyful Noise, this is a truly diverse release. In its original form Brother like no other is one of the few broken beat tunes on Ralfs celebrated album Uniting Music. The serious percussion work and beat programming is supplemented by miraculous live instrumentation that suits Wunmis vocals perfectly. Mature music for mature people. The Ralf GUM Dubs are pure deep dance-floor delight. The Ralf GUM Horn Dub uses a totally cut-up pattern of the horns from the Original Main Mix which is absolutely memorable. The Ralf GUM Minimized Dub reduces the instrumentation, and concentrates on the ridiculous driving rhythm, but still is a mind-blowing and multi layered weapon. Intelligent rhythmic journeys for any occasion. In the world of dance music, Wunmi is a one-off, an artist that effortlessly joins the dots between Nigeria's Afrobeat heritage, New York's house pedigree and London's jazz, broken beat and classic street sounds. During her career she worked with production heavyweights like Masters At Work, Seiji or Raw Artistic Soul. Wunmi finally released her first solo album A.L.A. in 2007. On Brother like no other she shows her soulful side without negating her African Roots. Artists Rufuss and Joyful Noise are both hailing from the French Qalomota Records camp, a label and a band founded in 1998 by producer Thierry Colau and Dj Chris Thomas. For every member of the Qalomota crew music is a physical and spiritual experience where the beat is the foundation, and the melody, food for the soul. Rufuss and Joyful Noise are both following this formula in diametrically opposed ways. Joyful Noise delivers a fierce, slightly techie version which is a secret weapon for peak time or late night. Rufuss music will take you on a Segio Leone styled trip. His beats are organic and his instrumentation has written live-feel over it, including great flute solo and finding its climax in those very remindable Italo-western hook breaks. Finally German DJ/producer Benny Pecoraio delivers a fabulous deep US House version. His remix is the perfect interpretation for everybody looking for the classical styled 4 to the floor mix with great atmosphere. GOGO Music is pleased to present you another undeniably awe-inspiring package with this Ralf GUM release. After putting out a string of acclaimed hit singles including All this love for you and the future classic Kissing Strangers plus a bunch of remix-works for e.g. Mn2S, Kapa or Foliage, Brother like no other now lands on the global scene after it already rocked Ralfs gigs on his South Africa tour lately in a big way.
