Through its ever effervescent and expansive music catalogue, long-standing house imprint GOGO Music has been stretching its roots far and wide from its founding country, Germany. The label has offered a string of memorable dance-floor classics over the years, whether through its principal founder Ralf GUM or any of its enlisted and trusted producer and DJ talents Raw Artistic Soul, Joseph Junior, MAQman and Sir LSG who recently won the award for Best Producer at the Dance Music Awards in South Africa.
From titles like Shana’s ‘Uyangichomela’, 60 Hertz Project’s ‘Capricorn’ or ‘Tapta Beach’ with Fast Vision Soul, Black Coffee’s ‘Garden of Eden/Trip To Lyon EP’ all the way to Sir LSG featuring Brian Themba and Kafele on ‘All I Am’ – GOGO has always had an ear-to-the-ground and it’s finger-on-the-pulse of the ever evolving local house music scene, presenting and profiling local producers who offer enigmatic gems that define an era.
The label has countless successful releases and now the label hopes to share it’s wealth of industry knowledge, to assist up-and-coming musicians, producers and DJs as they navigate their way through the maze that is the music industry. We caught up with GOGO Music founder Ralf GUM, who shared his thoughts on the forth-coming GOGO Music Industry Workshop…
“I am very excited to present “The GOGO Music Industry Workshop” which will provide insights into the music business, tapping into the knowledge and experience of established musicians, managers and industry insiders. It gives up and coming musical talent the opportunity to engage with top industry representatives.
My thanks go to the German Embassy Pretoria for funding this venture, Power 98.7 for their help and DJ Christos for partnering with me to make this initiative happen. Youth Empowerment is essential for a thriving economy and transferring knowledge to young talent can only help to grow our scene, therefore this is an opportunity people who think about a career in the music business should not miss.” – Ralf GUM
