VICTOR PORFIDIO, “To My Heart”
“Tell It To My Heart”, the 1988 Grammy-nominated smash by Taylor Dayne, is not a song to mess with unless you know what you’re doing. A few years ago, Jason Walker and Bimbo Jones had some success with a rendition that slayed because of Jason’s off-the-charts vocal. Miami-based, South America-born producer/DJ Victor Porfidio gives the song a deep house work-over as “To My Heart”. With a big, rich, soulful vocal by a singer he refers to as Big Mike, this version comes off as UK soul-meets-Miami deep house. It’s one helluva fast-paced surprise that should be embraced by DJ’s everywhere. This version also makes me wonder what the song would sound like as old school freestyle. “To My Heart” is definitely one to find and embrace!
