Before I get into the mix, I want to let all the iTunes users know that the feed is currently down. I was in the process of switching everything over to Pod-O-matic when it dawned on me just how long it would take to move everything over. Ultimately, I came to the realization that this would be a logistical nightmare and decided to stay put at Podbean. However, I jumped the gun and switched to the feed URL and that screwed everything up. I’ve sent a request to iTunes to have it switched back; hopefully, everything will be working this next week. In the meantime, there is no shortage of places to download the mixes. Obviously, you can get it here on my site https://www.partyfavorz.net, on my Facebook fan page or even on my Podbean page. I apologize for the inconvenience, but it is what it is and unfortunately, it is what it shouldn’t be.
Keeping up with the theme of the first mix, I’ve got a little bit of everything in this mix. Mica Paris starts things out with the smoking hot house mix of The Hardest Part, a song I love more and more each time I hear it. This is followed by my hands down favorite song of the moment, Show Me by Carolina Liar. Previously, I had used the more polished big production of Seamus Haji which was dead on, however, this time I went with the more stripped down version by Morgan Page which is equally as stellar. I’m not sure if this group is a Christian rock band or if that’s just the way the song plays out, but this emotionally charged song is a surefire winner not only for the dancefloors but at top 40 radio as well.
Another song I had been using earlier in the summer was Show Me the Way by White Shoes. The original is just pure electro-pop bliss while Chriss Ortega does an outstanding job of beefing it up while retaining all the elements that make this such a perfect pop song.
Riding high on the success of Love Story, Nadia Ali is back with Fine Print which is destined to become her second solo #1. If you like the Alex Sayz mix included here, wait till you hear the Serge Devant take which will be featured in my upcoming Autumn Edition next week. Speaking of which, Serge Devant’s freaking HOT tune Addicted to newcomer Hadley has been torching dance floors since spring. Taken from his album The Wanderer, this is a definite winner hands-down. Taking it further, I’d add Serge to my producer/DJ list of people to watch out for. This guy is on fire!
As I slowly slide out of progressive mode, the mix moves into a more calming but funkier housed up direction with the likes of Hold On by Backens, Oliver & Stefan Gruenwald, Purple Haze by the Bassmonkeys and the 1980 Geraldine Hunt disco classic remake of Can’t Fake the Feeling by house legend Todd Terry. What’s surely going to throw everyone for a loop will be Get Down Tonight by Supafly Inc. If you’re guessing this is a remake of the KC & the Sunshine Band classic, you’d be right. Taking the chorus from the original and layering it over the familiar groove, pumped up to the max for today’s floors, you can’t help but get all giddy while shake, shake shaking your booty!
Finally, I move into a more commercial electro-pop direction with the latest from the 80s disco diva extraordinaire Carol Hahn (Take Me and Dance) and the rocking Chillin by Wale with Lady GaGa (also check out the uber-cool Wideboys mix of this song) and then we depart with Kelly Clarkson’s latest Already Gone.
That about rounds out this edition. I hope everyone has a fabulous weekend. I’ll be back sometime next week with the Autumn Edition, just in time for all the Labor Day festivities going on around the country.
