It is always a pleasure to hear what is swirling around the mind of Chicago DJ/producer Ralphi Rosario – particularly since he is among the more consistent and forward-reaching talents working right now.  On “Gotta New Love (Keep Pushing On)” by Donna Blake, he collaborates with newcomer Mark Grant to fine effect.  The two dress Blake’s blustering soprano vocal range with skittling house rhythms that have insinuating tribal roots but do not forsake the song’s memorable melody.  Folks with an ear for richly layered arrangements are treated to a seemingly endless array of goodies, including several cute “Shaft”-like guitar rolls by Spike Rebel.
