Never Leaves You

  • Artists Ralf Gum
  • Release Date 2012-09-24
  • Label GOGO Music
  • Catalog BLV352491
  • Ralf GUM proves again with his new album that there is constancy - and consistency - to be found in this fast-moving world. His sound became an instantly recognizable trademark during the last two decades, as it cuts through the airwaves and clubs sound systems with unique class and style. "Never Leaves You" is testament to the fact that Ralf GUM has stayed true to his roots and his particular, well-honed style. Never one to skimp on the perfection of his arrangements, or sacrifice artful production to follow the latest trends, this album is his opus. The album features guest like: Caron Wheeler, Robert Owens, Kenny Bobien, Monique Bingham, Oluhe, Jocelyn Mathieu, Jaidene Veda, and more...

    'Never Leaves You' showcases the growth of Ralf GUM, who has never compromised and never left his signature style. Ten songs in which there's so much tohear and feel. The music abounds in soul; it's jaunty and deep simultaneously. Combining traditional and contemporary elements whilst still being futuristic, this album is well crafted enough to "Never Leave You".

    Reviews: Blues & Soul (UK)
    Never Leaves You presents something of a vocal house dream team, bringing together the heavenly tonsils of Kenny Bobien, Robert Owens, Monique Bingham and former Soul II Soul star Caron Wheeler among others. In the talented hands of German DJ-produer GUM that team compliments rather than counters an impressive, truly soulful collection of songs; vocals riding slick, funky rhythms and a wide array of often dazzling instruments to joyous effect. Bobien's unmistakeable falsetto slides supremely over stretches of brass on uplifting New Jersey groove The Only Way, Veda sounds more seductive than ever thanks to Do It For Love's deep, dreamy production and Bingham dances nimbly across album standout Take Me To My Love, with its infectious afro-lilt, warm, expressive keys and immaculate songcraft. There are further heartfelt performances from Zimbabwe's Oluhe (Linda) and Louie Vega collaborator Jocelyn Mathieu (Everything). Never Leaves You is a smooth, beautifully-crafted follow-up to GUM's 2008 debut album Uniting Music, emphatically demonstrating his ability to orchestrate soul-house goodness on the grandest possible scale. by Ben Lovett

    The new Ralf Gum album "Never Leaves You" is head and shoulders above the rest of what others call house music. Ralf Gum is truly a great amongst his peers and this album is testament to his skills. When you are this good at what you do, it's no surprise the quality of the vocalists you're going to attract and this album oozes quality vocalists in abundance. Dave Simpson

    Soul Survivors Magazine (UK)
    "Kenny Bobien, Robert Owens, Caron Wheeler and Ralf GUM in the same musical sentence... is an equilibrium of a chillaxing, hypnotic and atmospheric 2012 aqua boogie soundtrack. Mellow as Steve Arrington's cello. Fantabulous!!" Da Buzzboy Fitzroy

    Bent Magazine (UK)
    "...a moving, heartfelt body of work that can juice up a crowd or spruce up a chilled night at home with friends or alone." by Adam Lowe

    German DJ / Producer Ralf GUM delivers his 2nd album 'Never Leaves You' on his own GOGO Music imprint. A continuation of his previous works and has taken more than 2 years to complete Ralf GUM has stayed true to his roots and well-honed style. This album is his opus, paying homage to the song and creating a moving and heartfelt body of music that transcends to both the dance-floor and the couch. With a who's who of singers that include: Caron Wheeler (Soul II Soul), Monique Bingham, Zimbabwean shining star Oluhle (who won the Zimbabwean Achievers Award for Best Female Artist in 2011) the legens Robert Owens and Kenny Bobien. Plus appearnaces from Kafele, Jocelyn Mathieu and Jon Pierce. This completes a list of sterling singers that just prove Ralf's relevance as one of the most sought-after international soulful house producers. This is simply amazing now go buy it and support the finest soulful vocal house. 10/10 by Craig Bartlett

    DJ Times (USA)
    WOW!!! German DJ / Producer Ralf GUM rips it up on this solid full length house album.

This will certainly not disappoint. by Shawn Christopher
