I admire if not, in fact, worship several prominent DJs and their work, but none more than DJ Meme. From the Latin beats of his native Brazil to the uplifting disco-house romps that recall the now infamous Salsoul Orchestra, his productions always leave me in a state of amazement if not euphoria. Blending new technology with old school, he manages to create a warmth that is seriously missing in today’s electronic music. Taking those extra steps to add real strings and/or brass, things that synthesizers have long since replaced, he manages to capture the magic that was once isolated to the 70s. As such, Party Favorz decided to honor him with a Tribute Dance Mix.
Maybe my fascination with his style is because it captures an era that I was not a part of. What I do know, is that he isn’t finished yet. I’d say he’s just getting started. While it is not uncommon for many producers to reach back into their bag of goodies from the 70s and 80s, none do it with the care and precision that DJ Meme does. He has a passion for making quality house music; one listen and you’ll know why.
This Tribute Dance Mix is perfect for a poolside party, and I think they are just what you need to get your summer started. I hope everyone can appreciate the effort and magic that are poured into each selection. I’ll be back Wednesday with part two.
Until then… ENJOY!
