Pressrelease: Joseph Junior & MAQman - I Don’t See Love – GOGO 047
For Joseph Junior it always has been about music. Being soaked in parents old vinyl records playing Soul Music in the background, then fast-forward to teenage years listening to Anita Baker, Al Jareau, George Benson, Sade, Fela Kuti to finding Jazz like Miles, Coltrane and Ella which all helped to shape most of his subtle sound. Soon Joseph had the opportunity to provide backup vocals for many British acts including Mick Hucknall or Jocelyn Brown and went on to showcase his talents at legendary venues as the Jazz Café, The Scala and Royal Albert Hall. He worked alongside artist like Omar, Roachford, Mica Paris or Gwen McCrae and recorded at the legendary Larry Gold and Gamble & Huff Studios in Philadelphia, USA. Joseph’s style is undisputedly eclectic with its foundation always on Soul. It was the mutual love of him and MAQman for this genre, which provided the opportunity to record numerous songs together which were released on various labels worldwide.
MAQman’s musical career started as a keyboarder - from Blues to Funk to Soul to Jazz - with various bands and even Reggae with The Moonraisers who took him on tour around Europe during the last years. His production influence derives mainly from black music classics, which MAQman is collecting and playing since 1999. Through his extensive musical journeys, he managed to build up a team of musicians which allows him to keep his music organic and rich. It was the lucky coincidence of meeting amazing soulful singer/songwriter Joseph Junior who is the perfect vocalist to complete his fine productions and take them to another level. After joint outings on various Soul compilations with down- and mid tempo tracks, they soon focused on House Music and it was inevitable that their musical path had to cross with Germany’s flagship Deep House label GOGO Music.
Young and gifted musician Ezel joins the label as a remixer for the first time. Ezel’s parents named him after the Spanish words “Es El” that means that he is he, a unique being with a purpose of his own and that purpose is his art. Born in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic, Ezel has always been interested in matters of the Soul. In 2008 destiny allowed him to meet Osunlade, the Yoruba priest & music producer, a presence that has been highly influential in Ezel’s life and sound. 2 years later and after the release of his debut long-player „Secreto“ Ezel has growth to become one of the most admired new artists in the Underground House Scene, receiving the support of highly influential DJs such as Gilles Peterson or Joaquin “Joe” Claussell. Having done remix work for some of the most important dance labels worldwide, GOGO Music had an eye on him for quite a while and found now with “I Don’t See Love” the suitable title to ask him for his valued contribution.
Rounding off the package is MAQman & Jezrael’s version. Born blind in the Philippines, multi-instrumentalist Jezrael Lucero’s center of life was always sonic. Nowadays he is residing in Hong-Kong where he makes his living with gigs and sessions. MAQman decided to approach him after attending some of his superb shows. Being as well a producer and sharing the same musical taste with MAQman, they immediately found the magical chemistry to substitute their dexterities in the studio resulting in refined works.
GOGO Music offers with this release the perfect combination of emotional, soul-healing Deep House, that has both - the potential to enlighten every sophisticated dance-floor and being equally enjoyed in any other surrounding.
