Hot Video Alert: Raph Solo - Rich In My Heart (The Big Money Mix)
Well this sounds like a future big gay club anthem if I've ever heard one. Raph Solo (AKA Raphael Solomon) delivers in a big way on his new single, "Rich In My Heart," "a heart wrenching song about pride and poverty." The video is really interesting, featuring Solo as a sort of Robin Hood-like character in the Middle East, giving his money to the poor. I definitely need to watch the original version of the video rather than the remix version because, while there's clearly a message here, all I want to do is dance!
Newly signed to indie label, Angel King Musique, "Rich In My Heart" is Solomon's first single released through the label. Previous releases, "Beautiful Dancer" and "I Miss You" were both independently funded and distributed. Solomon financed the studio time by working as a bartender, security guard and as a male model but clearly music was his passion, although he is absolutely gorgeous and could probably go back to modeling. Just see ABOVE single artwork if you are in doubt.
On the remix we have Solo, an Angel King signee, delivering on a funky string and guitar mix (Big Money Mixes) as well as the Rich Mix. Additionally we have The Club Junkies who are fast establishing themselves as a go-to dance remix outfit in their native UK AND who have remixed Solomon's first two singles. Finally, we have NYC-based DJ Giuseppe D. who has fashioned a fantastic house mix (Electro Rock Mixes). Quite the package! Check out the video for the original version of the song HERE and watch the Big Money Remix video below. Summer-in-the-middle-of-winter dance anthem anyone?
