Party Favorz is kicking the new year off with ‘A Feeling‘ a winter chill out music journey which starts off very lowkey before picking up. There are some points where you might think the roof is on fire but everything quickly simmers down to a low boil.
I began compiling tracks for the next Disco House and Peak Hour series and had a lot of great songs that didn’t quite fit into these categories. It was something I had been anticipating since Beatport expanded their genre categories to include Funky House, Jackin House (already a Traxsource staple), Melodic House & Techno, Organic House / Downtempo, and Garage.
For the most part, the way they divide up the genres is meaningless. While some songs have a truly identifiable rhythm, most do not. When you add in Breaks / Breakbeat, Electronica, House, Indie Dance, and Minimal and Deep Tech genres, there’s not enough differentiating most songs. Some elements are identifiable allowing for categorization but most fall into a grey area.
The biggest benefit to adding in all these different genres is that it allows DJs to sample more sounds while finding great music that in the past may have gone unnoticed. For that reason, I applaud Beatport (and to a greater extent JunoDownload) for providing better options for discovering new music.
What I am sure about is that many of these songs spread across different genres are simply excellent — even if they don’t quite fit into the Party Favorz category list. I pulled together all my favorite tracks and started mixing while discarding songs that I couldn’t make work.
To be certain, this is not like previous efforts so I want to ensure expectations are met. This is a darker journey but a much more satisfying one that ends on a high and jubilant note.
Up next will likely be Disco House followed by Peak Hour before we get into Dance Club and Circuit & Anthems. For now, put your slippers on and a few logs on fire while you kickback and enjoy some winter chill out music.
Until the next time…ENJOY!
