With Ralf Gums excellent album cut ‘Never’ featuring Louie Vega mixes via GOGO Music just landing on Traxsource as a full single. We sat down with Ralf to get an indepth look ‘Inside The Track’ and more with this Exclusive interview. 1) Since your album release, the LP singles & remixes have really gained a lot of support & now with your latest single ‘Never’, this looks set to do big things. When I started working on the ‘Never Leaves You’ album I approached Kafele for collaboration on a song. After the success we had with ‘Complicated’ and as he’s such a cool, easy going guy, I definitely wanted to work with him again. I sent him the music, which became the album title ‘Burning Star’. While he was working on it, he came back to me and told me that he has this buddy called Jon Pierce and a song-idea together with him and asked if I would be interested to hear it.

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". soulm8 Ezine (UK) 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.

Ralf Gum offers up more house for dancefloor delectation with NEVER LEAVES YOU, and right from "Everything," you can hear his abiding love for classic Chicago vocal house. "Burning Star" and "Do It for Love" have hints of the smooth, sexy house à la Naked Music, while the horns of "The Only Way" lead it right into your feet. "Take Me To My Love" is more subdued and adds a nice African touch with its kalimba-like tones and Monique Bingham's dexterous vocals, but "Linda" wears its African influences more on its sleeve with Oluhle's vocals. The always-awesome Caron Wheeler contributes her powerhouse lungs to the funky, upbeat "So Good." There are a handful of more lackluster tracks, but the strong ones surely make up for weaknesses elsewhere. Never leave this album. Unless you have to. And then just come back to it later.
