From the very first second you will be caught by the masterly "Linda", the second single taken from Ralf GUM's forthcoming long player "Never leaves you". Featuring Oluhle who sings in Zulu, "Linda" is an inspirational production fusing smooth percussive Afro inspired rhythms with the unmistakable Ralf GUM sound and the beautiful unrivaled gospel tinged vocals by Oluhle - to make it short, this is a slice of ingenious soulful house music guaranteed to send shivers down your spine. Admired South African producer Da Capo is the chosen one to remix the song, he takes you on a spell binding journey to deepest territory on his thrilling rendition where relentless afro-percussive rhythms serve as playground for the vocals and ethereal synth melodies. Essential, by no means to be missed.
