Hex Hector | Mixology VIII

Oh no, say it ain’t so!  Yup, we have finally arrived at the final set paying tribute to genius that is Hex Hector.  To be honest, Hector didn’t create all of these mixes himself.  He has partnered with several folks for the final product throughout this eight set series.  Dezrok, Soul Solution and even Jonathan…

Hex Hector | Mixology VII

We’re at the tail-end of the Hex Hector Mixology series with volume 7.  This particular set is for the hardcore Hex enthusiasts.  There are a couple of his trademark songs towards the end, but most of these were minor club hits (even if some of them went to #1 on the Billboard Dance Club chart).…

Hex Hector | Mixology VI

Continuing the rollout of the Hex Hector Mixology series, I’ve got volume 6 on tap.  Once again, this set features some of his biggest and most memorable remixes like the massive Un-break My Heart by Toni Braxton, I Learned From the Best by Whitney Houston and a personal favorite Girl From the Gutter by Kina.…

Hex Hector | Mixology V

Volume V of Hex Hector Mixology series is a cream mix featuring many of his biggest hits.  Normally I pick favs out of each set, but this particular one is stacked head to toe with them, so it’s kind of pointless. I’m elated over the positive response these sets have generated.  I had attempted to…

Hex Hector | Mixology IV

I’m back with the fourth installment of the Hex Hector Mixology tribute.  There aren’t too many surprises in this set other than Aretha Franklin’s A Rose Is Still a Rose, which frankly is a timeless slice of house.  Personal favorites in this set are George Michael’s Outside, Faith Hill’s Breathe, Donna Summer’s Love On &…

Hex Hector | Mixology III

I hope everyone is enjoying my tribute to Hex Hector.  Personal favorites out of this set are Reina’s Find Another Woman and Lisa Stansfield’s I’m Leavin.  The surprise mixes (one’s that had totally forgotten about and still enjoy) are Sherrie Lea’s Anyway and, Purple Kitty featuring Latanza Waters Bang On and Joy Enriquez’ Shake Up…

Hex Hector | Mixology II

We’re back with the 2nd installment of Hex Hector’s Mixology.  This set features some of my all-time Hex favorites (well all the sets do) like Everyday by Kim English, the brilliant Spanish Guitar by Toni Braxton and I Will Love Again by Lara Fabian; my go to song after one of my many short-term break-ups LOL.…

Hex Hector | Mixology I

The requests for the Hex Hector Tribute are in and the sets are finished!   I took my entire catalog of Hex’s mixes (there’s a shit-load), gathered up all of  your favorites and then went through and started deleting things I knew weren’t going to be included.  The only requests that were not were from…

Calling ALL Hex Hector Fans!

Party Favorz plans on putting together a Hex Hector Tribute mix for this fantastic DJ, who has worked over some of our favorite DIVAS  from the past decade. So think really hard, because there are definitely some obscurities in his repertoire that you don’t want to miss.  The songs can be from his solo work…

Whitney 2018 Thank You Mix | The Diva Series

In the final days of 2017, I thought I’d show some appreciation for the folks that have donated, contributed and made comments by sending up a thank you mix by Whitney (no last name required) to take us into 2018. You folks are the only reason I’m sticking this out one more year. Originally, I…

Holiday Edition 2017 | Heat Up the Holidays with the HOTTEST Circuit Beats!

It appears I’ve been given the green light to go ahead and post the Holiday Edition 2017 featuring the holiday’s HOTTEST circuit beats. The song in question is a remake of the Eartha Kitt cum Madonna classic “Santa Baby” by Dirty Disco featuring the always fabulous Jeanie Tracy. There are two mixes of this song.…

Surrender Yourself | 90’s House Classics pt. 9

And the 90’s House Classics just keep on rolllin’! Surrender Yourself is chalk-full of classic house music favorites but also has what I like to call the early incarnations of that circuit sound. The Junior Vasquez remix of Body To Body (Keep In Touch) by Shades of Love and Soul Solutions remix of Changes by…

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…

Miss Inaya Day | The Diva Series

We are now at the most important part of this morning’s post, which is the long overdue induction into the Diva Hall of Fame of the one and only Miss Inaya Day. I was browsing around the Billboard club charts a month or so ago and stumbled across a section I had NEVER seen before…

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…

Spice Girls | The Diva Series

If you downloaded this mix in the first 24 hours, it has been updated to the final edited version. The podcasts are the same, but 5 minutes have been edited out over various songs. Over the decades, there have been plenty of girl groups that wrangled the public’s attention. The Supremes or Diana Ross &…

Patti LaBelle | The Diva Series

Miss Patti LaBelle was the moving force behind the 70’s Soul group LaBelle and their signature song Lady Marmalade made them international superstars. Patti’s powerful vocals made her a standout in the group (though they subsequently reformed in the 90’s) as she eventually went solo with a sustained and successful career that has lasted decades.…

Victor Calderone Tribute pt. 1

I knew for sometime now that I wanted to put together a Victor Calderone Tribute series that honored the man and the more commercial aspects of his career. In fact, I had siphoned off all of his mixes into a separate folder but just hadn’t gotten around to doing anything with it. I finally sat…

Circuit Anthems & Gay Pride Classics pt. 2

Back on board with part 2 of Circuit Anthems & Pride Classics with a couple of bootlegs from past Pride years. Barry’s recent epic re-work of the Jim Steinman classic Total Eclipse of the Heart sung by Bonnie Tyler is so f@cking HUGE, I couldn’t help myself. The same could be said about the Chris…

Gloria Estefan | The Diva Series

I can’t think of no better way to offset a nu-school Diva induction with an old school induction that frankly, is long overdue. Gloria Estefan is a multi-Grammy winner with several top ten hits including Conga (her-trademark song performed with Miami Sound Machine), Rhythm Is Gonna Get You, 1-2-3, Get On Your Feet, Anything For…

I just want to say that your Hex Mixology Series is simply AMAZING!!! YOU ROCK!!! Thank you so much, you wonderful mixologist. -John

Beach House 2015 v2

Happy Friday everybody!  To get your weekend going, I’m putting up part 2 of the disco-funky-house-shit Beach House!  This set starts out all housed-up, then moves into a more disco-funk direction finally winding down with some modern-day house (you know with the deep sound to it), making this an all-round must have for your pool…

Amy Grant | The Diva Series

Earlier this year, the Grammy winning C-Pop artist Amy Grant, released her first remix album of some of her biggest hits.  For those of you not familiar with Amy, she was a massive Christian pop star in the 80s and in 1991 released her first crossover album Heart In Motion, which yielded five top 20…

Unspeakable Joy | Gay Pride Anthems & Classics

I can’t of no better way to wind this site down than with a new addition to the Pride Classics series.  It’s been a long while since I originally posted the 5-set podcast, which I performed some minor updating to last year but it still needed more.  Bigger, better, faster …HARDER! Things start off with…
