Catching Up With Freemasons v2

What a day yesterday was.  First Farrah, then Michael.  I just want to set the record straight about some of the posts I made regarding Michael’s death.  I don’t want everyone to think I’m some cold-hearted bitch (well, just a little anyway).  As someone that was molested as a child, it’s hard to feel any…

Happy House Classics from the Millennium vol. 1 | Because Shit Happens

When I first sat down to compile the tracklist and then create Happy House Classics, I was more than pleased with the final output. When I went back and listened to it, I realized that I had created yet another Pride Classics set which heavily overlapped with previous efforts. Other than the weather being horrendous…

Annie Lennox 2017 | The Diva Series

The original Annie Lennox Diva Series was released in May of 2009. She was one of my earliest inductees. As a personal preference as an artist, vocalist and performer, her music has gotten me through some of the most darkest moments in my life. Since the original set is missing several favorites, I felt it…

Deep & Funky 2007 pt. 1 | Expanded and Remastered

In my last post, I asked if anyone had some older mixes that I long ago lost due to a hard drive crash. I want to give a HUGE shoutout to Dean and Marshall for making it happen. The BPM Edition 2009 v5, which was originally 4 sets has been combined into two and is…

Gay Chicago Pride Beats 2017

SURPRISE! Party Favorz was commissioned by one of our loyalist to create a Pride mix specifically for them. Over the years, I’ve done these for birthday parties, where folks would give them out as part of goody bags, as well as for various charitable events. I’m not sure what Samuel plans on doing with this…

Free, Gay & Happy | Gay Pride Anthems 2017 vol. 5

There is a gold pot at the end of this long rainbow journey Party Favorz has taken and we’ve almost reached it. I finally got my grubby hands on the official remixes of Free, Gay & Happy by the Coming Out Crew featuring the fabulous Sabrina Johnston. I had always used a remake by Verde…

A Little RESPECT | Gay Pride Anthems 2017 vol.4

Well, batten down the hatches, lower the boom and raise the mizenmast because Party Favorz is moving full speed ahead! I’m back with volume 4 of Gay Pride Anthems for 2017 titled A Little Respect. As usual, this set is packed of massive Gay Anthems in their original glory days format plus several alternate mixes…

Over the Rainbow | Gay Pride Anthems 2017 vol. 3

Keeping the heat up, Party Favorz is sending up the 3rd volume of gay pride anthems, Over the Rainbow. Once again, it’s packed with crowd pleasing favorites by Whitney Houston, Rozalla, Chaka Khan & Martha Wash (to name a few). While all the sets are finished, I still need to go back and brush up…

Born This Way | Gay Pride Anthems 2017 vol. 2

Well, I’m running a bit behind this morning. I went out for my usual morning Starbucks. Once I got back, the sun was shining so bright, I couldn’t see the lines on my car screen to back into the garage so I relied on the painted lines to guide me in. Little did I realize…

Beyoncé 3.0 | The DIVA Series

Beyoncé Giselle Knowles was born September 4, 1981 in Houston, TX. She rose to fame in the early 90’s as a member of the all-girl group (who deserve their own induction into the prestigious Diva Hall of Fame) Destiny’s Child. The four ladies of this group were whittled down to three with accusatory fingers pointing in…

George Michael Tribute pt. 2 | Freedom ’16

I had originally planned to update George’s original induction into the Diva Hall of Fame from 2010 this next year. Under the circumstances, I changed those plans and undertook the project the day after Christmas. I couldn’t allow the original mix be the final word. I spent an entire day remastering each song one by…

George Michael | Tribute 1963 – 2016

It is with a heavy heart and deep sorrow that I am re-posting George Michael’s original induction into the Diva Hall of Fame and am now filing it under Tribute. He is truly one of the greatest artists of my lifetime and his album Listen Without Prejudice Vol. 1 is one of my top 10 all-time…

Year in Dance 2015 pt. 5 | The Year’s Biggest Dance Hits!

We’ve finally made it to the 5th and final volume of the 2015 Year in Dance.  It’s been crazy around here lately, so I haven’t had much time to write-up my thoughts about the year that was but suffice to say it gets a mixed review in my book. If 2014 was the transitional year…

Kylie Minogue [2015] | The Diva Series

LIKE OMG …IT’S KYLIE!  Yes folks, the latest induction of Madonna, uh I mean Kylie into the Diva Hall of Fame has finally arrived.  I know I’ve been teasing this out for about a month now, but I am a perfectionist and frankly busted my nuts in every aspect putting this set together for her…

Katy Perry [2015] | The Diva Series

When I headed out for some breakfast yesterday, I was listening to the news in my car and found out that Katy Perry was performing at half-time during the Super Bowl tomorrow.  I’m sure this was not news to everyone but me; yet somehow, someway that bit of information surpassed the little storage bins in…

Jingle Electric 2K14

Moving along, I’ve got the annual Jingle Electric 2K14 edition featuring the latest in EDM, Electro-pop and House …STOP THE PRESSES!  Did I just say House?  Yup. While I could have easily loaded this set with big-ass anthems from start to finish, I decided to really shake things up this go around.  In fact, this…

Can’t Get Enough | Millennial House Classics v5

Picking up where we left off, Can’t Get Enough of the Millennial House Classics series takes us up around the bend for the final stretch due next week.  There are so many personal favorites on this particular set that it reads like a who’s who list of massive House Classics from that time period.  Then…

Release Your Mind | Millennial House Classics v3

Party Favorz is back with the third installment of the Millennial House Classics series.  “Release Your Mind” delves into the seriously straight house hits from the first ten years, which includes Agnes’s global hit “Release Me” from the end of the first decade and signaled a shift in direction for house music, all the while…

Turn It Up | MIllennial House Classics v2

What exactly constitutes a “house classic?”  For that matter, what makes any song a classic?  Generally, we think songs that were so huge back in the day and had universal appeal are classics.  Sure, they are but what about a song that was regional or only received minor play but for some reason or another…

Let’s Get Busy | Millennial House Classics v1

I started this project earlier this year and had been working on it off and on between other posts.  Frankly, it was finished a few months ago and I had shelved it until now.  Millennial House Classics is basically an extension of the original 90s House Classics but focuses on the first ten years of…

Beyoncé 2.0 | The Diva Series

Kicking off your weekend with a BANG with the second induction into the Diva Hall of Fame featuring the super-fab Mrs. Carter, otherwise known as Beyoncé or just plain ole B if your nasty.  Oh wait, that was another diva, nevermind. With all the brouhaha over her baby sister Solange going mental on Jay-Z, this…

Loleatta Holloway | The Diva Series [Re-boot]

This is the re-boot edition of the original Diva Series honoring Loleatta Holloway I created in 2010 and reissued in 2011 after her death.  Apparently, some guy from France on house-mixes.com shamelessly stole my original mix and claimed it as his own dedicating it to her life and memory.  Given the issues surrounding her lawsuit…

Back Spin v3

I logged into work this morning only to be kicked out, which left me scratching my head. I went back and checked my schedule and it seems my company went in and cancelled my early hours this morning leaving me time to go ahead and post the next installment of Back Spin. I have to…

Summer of Pride

As Loleatta once sang, I Am Ride On Time …LOL. Serving a cool treat for these ensuing hot days and in celebration of all things Pride 2013, I made a last-minute decision a couple of days ago to pull Freemasons into the mix. Equally adept at making divas shine, Freemasons have consistently been at the…

Xtina | The Diva Series

This week I’ll be posting three brand-spanking new sets of the Diva Series before giving that edition a rest for a couple of months. To kick things off, the one and only Christina Aguilera is being re-inducted to the Diva Hall of Fame and by all accounts, she fits the true definition LOL. The attitude,…

Time Capsule 2012 v2

Volume 2 of Time Capsule 2012 has many of my favorite songs of the year. P!nk, Eva Simmons and Sander Van Doorn feat. Mayaeni had my favorite heartbreak songs. Love, anger and doomed relationships seemed to be at the top of my radar this year LOL. However the brilliant Zedd, Avicii and Porter Robinson equally…

Year-end Edition 2011 v2

I’m finally getting around to posting the second volume of the Year-end Edition and here it is.  Packed with all sorts of goodies from 2011, there isn’t a bad egg in the bunch. With the MLK holiday coming up on Monday, I’ve already got a 3 day weekend reprise from school (go figure).  So, I’ll…
