We’re amped to announce that Party Favorz is rolling out not one, but two volumes of our Throwback series. This isn’t your usual fare. We’re talking about songs that evoke nostalgia, remixed by familiar names like Block & Crown and GhostMasters. Interestingly, these creators are mixing it up—literally. They’re giving a fresh beat to songs that you probably never thought would belong in the Dance, Disco, or House categories.
In fact, our buddy DJ Freddy Greene started paving this route a while back. Remember his Disco and ’80s Dance edits? He was all about those DJ-friendly versions. However, he also began adding beats to pop songs, and I must admit, it left me a bit puzzled.
Hits and Misses: A Mixed Bag of Remixes
Now that others are jumping on this trend, the results are, let’s say, a mixed bag. Take Heart’s iconic Rock ballad “Alone.” Now picture it with a House beat. Sounds odd? That’s because it is, and even we’re curious to see how you’ll react to these new mixes.
You’ll notice the first volume spreads its influences across several decades but leans heavily towards the ’80s. Volume 2? It’s almost exclusively an ’80s fiesta, with a sprinkling of late-’70s tracks to keep you guessing. There are definitely some throwback songs that will not only surprise you but knock you off your feet.
Keeping Up With the Prolific Output of Dance Edits
Just try to keep pace; these artists are pushing out songs faster than you can say “remix.” All the selections in these volumes have been amassed since our Summer Throwback in June. There’s enough material for a third volume, but we’re saving those gems for a spring release
If these revamped classics tickle your fancy, head over to Beatport and look under their Funky House category. You’ll find a plethora of these tracks, and other DJs entering this realm. Spotify and Apple Music are also good platforms to follow these artists. Trust us, the tracks we’re showcasing barely scratch the surface of what these DJs offer. Here are their Spotify and Apple Music pages:
Block & Crown: Spotify Apple Music
GhostMasters: Spotify Apple Music
Measuring Success of this Throwback and What Lies Ahead
We’ll be keeping a close eye on the success of these latest Throwback offerings. Their performance will shape the future of further releases in this niche. Our first two original volumes were big hits, and we’re hopeful these will follow suit. But only time will tell.
And don’t forget, Party Favorz thrives on your support. If you’re digging what we’re putting together, think about making a donation today. Your contributions help us keep the dance floor alive.
Until the next time…ENJOY!
