My Top 10 @ 10 W/ DJ/ Producer Ralf GUM

Ralf GUM’s music career dates back to 1990 when he started out as a DJ before establishing himself three years later as a full-on institution within the industry with own productions. Since then Ralf evolved to one of the most respected figures in the House Music scene called a role model, pioneer, innovator, legend and global House Music superstar by others, while his secret is simply to keep absolutely fervid about real music. Always staying true to his passion and attempting to enhance the genre, he is globally renowned for his exceptional productions and DJ-sets. Harmony, Soul & Groove – are the main ingredients, but just some aspects of Ralf’s distinctive deep sound.

With an instinctive feeling for the right vibe, Ralf GUM convincingly performed as a DJ all over Europe, Asia, the Middle East, South- and North America as well as Africa. From the early 90ies he had various residencies in Germany including the "Airport" (Wuerzburg), which was the living-room for his interpretation of Dance Music for more than a decade. Ralf captured the crowd with his sessions every Friday night and hosted other top artists like DJ Gregory, Martin Solveig, Lenny Fontana, Mousse T or Frankie Feliciano, to name just a few. From 2002 till 2007 Ralf held a bi-weekly event at "Studio-Lounge" (Wuerzburg) which was called “the deepest and most soulful party of Germany” by the Subculture Magazine. In addition Ralf has a tight international DJ schedule since the late 90ies, which let him travel to most corners of the globe. Ralf toured in South Africa for the first time in autumn 2008 to great response. Two extensive tours followed there in 2009, one of them coming along an invitation by DJU and the Department of Arts and Culture to the Southern African Music conference where he conducted various workshops. Since then Ralf became an annual panellist at the conference where he passes his knowledge about music-production, label business, DJ-ing and more to a multitude of aspiring talents
