A real beauty, A gospel house anthem. This production by Diva Down Entertainment features an uplifting and inspirational gospel vocal by SuSu Bobien, remixed by some top Italian producers.
Born for friendship between Dewey and the GKF’s manager Jean Paul, PRAISE ALWAYS is a real “Gospel House Anthem” as some friend defined it at WMC08 this year, after receiving the demo of this incredible project. It’s a spiritual song, a praise song, a thanksgiving to the LORD for the blessing HE’s sending on Gotta Keep Faith. SUSU BOBIEN really express the feeling of a song wrote by Dewey Cioffi, owner of DIVA DOWN ENTERTAINMENT. Her voice is amazing and anointed throughout the entire song. The additional background of DAWN TALLMAN tore it up SUSU’s vocals.
The incredible thing is that this wonderful song is remixed by 4 of the most talented producers in Italy. SPIRITUAL BLESSINGS realize the main track and a wicked dub, putting together some really nice musicians and arranger, the Jazz Maestro GIANNI LENOCI (Piano-Keys), ENRICO BRANCHINI (Trumpets-Sax-Guitar) and PIERPAOLO SECHI (Rhodes). CIAPPY DJ edited and arranged with the help of DAVIDE MURRI a class mix and an instrumental track. Thanks also, for their work, to important musicians like FABRIZIO SCARAFILE (Sax-Tenor saxophone), PAOLO ROMANO (Electric bass), DIOSVANI HERNANDEZ (Trumpet-Trombone). Then we have ALEX DIMITRI “SOUTH SOUL” with DIEGHITO for a gospel mix and a dub. To close this 8 mixes project, the DOLLS COMBERS enveloped a superb version with an amazing keys solo played by PINO DI PIETRO.
We wanna say thank you to ALEX DIMITRI for the help and big support!!!

- DEAN SERAFINI (JJaz Project Magazine)- ” This is a good old fashioned hands in the air gospel house monster with a truly awesome vocal allied to an outstanding package of mixes. I’ve been hooked pretty much straight from the opening bars of the first “Spiritual Blessings Give The Glory Mix”. It’s melodic and uplifting and given the pedigree of the vocalist, should have most of you scurrying to get your hands on it sooner rather than later. The “Spiritual Blessings Shout Praises Dub” absolutely nails it too, with the perfect formula for the floor. “Ciappy DJ and Davide Murri go for a more laid back groove that has a live performance feel to it. They also provide an instrumental, although I for one can’t get enough of the vocals. Alex Dimitri steps up to the plate, delivering an atmospheric interpretation that leans on a soothing combination of keys and strings that leave the vocal as the clear focal point of the production. His dub, on the other hand has a much more underground vibe. The package is completed by two versions, one vocal, one instrumental from Dolls Combers which have some synths that are reminiscent of the early Detroit sound that are interwoven with hammond style organs and jazzy rhodes and live bass. All in all this is as good as anything I’ve listened to in 2008.”
- LLUDOVIC LLORCA – “Classy garage. This is good music.”
- CORY SOULFUSION (Centric) - “TUNE TUNE TUNE ! The best GFK to date for me class!”
- RAY FENWICK (Converge/Diamondhouse Records) – “Another quality release from GKF records. I have listened to all of these tracks a few times now and the best ones for me are; (Spiritual Blessings shout praises dub) nice and deep feel to this one and works well in my warm up sets. (Dolls Combers MoněLeslie Mix) again another one for my warm up sets with some cool keys and a nice happy feeling to it. Keep up the good work GKF”
-FRANCO MARTINELLI (Housepage.net)-“ Gotta Keep Faith is on fire ! Here's another awesome release from the Italian based deep/soulful label. "Praise always" is an uplifting gospel-house track featuring the amazing vocals of SuSu Bobien. The package includes various mixes from some of the hottest italian soulful and deep production teams. Spiritual Blessings delivers an uplifting gospel-house anthem, and goes deeper in the Dub mix. Ciappy DJ & Davide Murri mixes are more laid-back and soulful affairs, while Alex Dimitri adds some hot jazzy piano, atmospheric pads and an infectious deep groove in his rework. Finally, Doll Combers provides two beautiful and intense remixes with great Hammond keys, jazzy Rhodes and solid beats.”
