Thunderpuss Tribute pt. 2

Barry Harris and Chris Cox a.k.a. Thunderpuss, were quite possibly the biggest dance music production team in the past decade.  From Whitney and Janet to Madonna and Britney, they have remixed some of the biggest DIVAS on the planet.  In 2003, the pair went their separate ways, much to the disappointment of their fans.  Chris…

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…

X-mas Dance Mix 2K17 | The Ultimate Holiday Dance Mix!

Surprise! As Party Favorz winds down our 10th year, I found myself with some extra time and decided to pull together that one killer holiday dance set that I felt I had not yet achieved. X-mas Dance Mix 2K17 achieves that goal and more. Pulling together my favorite seasonal dance classics like Mariah Carey’s “All…

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.…

It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year (Again)!

It’s the most wonderful time of the year (again)! That time where we stuff ourselves with turkey, fight over politics with family and friends, sleep it off, watch football and parades and try to get the best steals on gifts for loved ones or ourselves. In an effort to get everyone in the mood and…

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…

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…

X-mas Dance 2K16

HO! HO! HO! I wasn’t sure how to pull this off but somehow I managed. I had several dance tunes leftover from X-mas Dance 2010 and 2K14 that I wasn’t sure how to incorporate into a cohesive set. With a few new entries showing up and help from our good friend Marshall B., I was…

DJ Barry Harris Tribute pt. 1 | Yellow Edition

Since the demise of the dynamic duo Thunderpuss in 2003, DJ Barry Harris had been largely absent from the commercial production and remix industry he and Cris Cox helped established, for almost a decade. In 2014, he emerged and slowly began to re-establish his name with original remixes like ‘ Party ‘Round the Word’ by Jason Dottley…

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 &…

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. 1

When I made my first Gay Anthems set in 2009, I posted a full write-up on what constitutes a “gay anthem” or “pride classic,” that’s worth a read. I won’t bother writing it up again but it’s there if you want to have a good laugh. For the next four sets, I’ve flipped the narrative…

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…

Baby It’s Christmas

Les from Static Sessions, who is one of Party Favorz longtime followers sent me his Christmas dance remix yesterday and I was so impressed, I got his permission to post it to the site. If you need a lot more energy to get your holiday spirits up, this set should do the trick.  Think of…

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 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…

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…

Time Capsule 2K14 | Volume 3

Probably the single most important aspect of EDM in 2014 is the DJ.  In general, DJs are more than what their title implies.  They are also, producers and artists in their own right.  While many get their satisfaction by spinning in local clubs, a good many more regenerate and/or reinvigorate other musicians music by adding…

Fall Edition 2K14

Welcome to the annual 2K14 Fall Edition!  I’m talking about bodies movin, non-stop groovin, asses shakin, floors are breakin, queens are freakin, ho’s are creepin, divas flowing and did I mention HOT COWBOYS? LOL You’ll notice a familiar trend throughout this set as there is one common denominator holding this shit together …Mr. Barry Harris…

Leann Rimes | The Diva Series | Refresh

Thanks to John, one of Party Favorz followers, I was reminded of the fabulousness of one of country music’s greatest voices, Miss Leann Rimes. Often criticized for being too fat or too skinny, too country or too pop or even [gasp] a husband stealing homewrecker, Miss Rimes is the perfect candidate for DIVA status. When…

Strict Machine | Epic Gay Circuit Anthems v4

So I get up early this morning as normal and head on over to pay a visit to Ian, the Starbucks hottie that works the drive-thru.  Considering we are deep into summer, the morning was unusually crisp and cool as if it were early fall.  Mind you I’m not complaining, but I did think it…

Got Pride? 2014

With all the work, headaches and overall general crap trying to get Party Favorz moved over to WordPress and Libsyn, my new hosting provider for the actual podcast, I was afraid that this year’s Pride was gonna get lost in the shuffle. While working on Gay Days, I began making the rainbow connection and ideas…

New York City Boy | Epic Gay Circuit Anthems v2

New York City Boy continues the theme of hot sex on the dance floor established in the previous version of this four-piece series. Having already completed all four of these, one of the issues that I encountered was the grandiosity of many of the songs.  Often times, the DJs piled on for seemingly no reason…

Ooh La La | Epic Gay Circuit Anthems v1

After promising this series last year, I finally sat down and started compiling these songs and managed to squeeze out four of them.  Ooh La la is the first of the Epic Circuit Anthems and when I say “Epic,” I mean EPIC! From the late 90s and through the first 8 years of the millennium,…

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…

Jennifer Holliday | The Diva Series

Broadway actress, recording star, gospel singer, Jennifer Holliday is everything a diva represents and more. She was a large woman through much of her career but subsequently lost a tremendous amount of weight. Regardless of her size (us gays love our divas big or small), her voice has always remained the biggest thing about her.…

Celine Dion | The Diva Series

Your humble host has been under the weather for the past several weeks and is way behind in my posts, all of which have been finished for some time now and begging to be unleashed.  I’m trying to take advantage of the best I’ve felt in a long while so here goes… In a nutshell,…

X-mas Dance Mix

On the eve of Thanksgiving, as we start to think about the things in life for which we are grateful, I could think of no better time to kick off the holiday season than with a little X-mas cheer. Resurrected from last year and the two years prior, I dusted off this holiday dance set…

Donna Summer [1948–2012] | The Diva Series

This is a re-boot of the original Donna Summer Tribute I put out last year and includes two new songs. Not unlike Michael Jackson, Donna Summer reached the upper-echelon of her career and then was quickly struck down by controversy.  While each instance is significantly different with respect to the issue surrounding the heap of…
