Funky House Music Ahead: Don’t Walk, Dance!

No matter the weather, Party Favorz is set to elevate your mood and add a spark to your weekend with our latest Funky House music mix. “Don’t Walk, Dance!” is one of those sets that’s created in one sitting which packs an extraordinary punch and delivers pure magic right to your ears.

We start with a bang, featuring the iconic 90s House music sensation, Adeva. Collaborating with Soul Seekerz, bringing us “Musical Freedom”, a track that echoes persistence and hope, while doing the Candi Staton original proud. It’s a powerful opener that sets the tone for what’s to come.

A Funky House Journey Through Musical Masterpieces

Transitioning smoothly, we dive into “Your Heaven” by Mother of Pearl featuring Pearl Mae, a track that epitomizes the uplifting spirit of Funky House. This is quickly followed by Mike Newman’s “Things I Do“, which intriguingly blends a Robin S-like sound with lyrics from the Commodores’ 1977 hit “Easy”, creating an uplifting vibe.

In a seamless transition, we experience Word of Mouth UK’s creative mashup of Aretha Franklin’s “A Deeper Love (Pride)” with Paul Johnson’s “Get Get Down”. This fusion not only honors the classics but also reinvigorates them for today’s dance floors.

Iconic Samples and Versatility in Funky House

Illyus and Barrientos, known for their versatility, team up with Phebe Edwards on “Wait“, a track that’s pure gold. Mark Knight, another master at his craft, takes us into the realm of big room House with “The Greatest Thing Alive“, a collaboration with Green Velvet and James Hurr. This deep House track is sure to have dance floors moving in unison.

No Party Favorz mix is complete without a nod to the legendary Loleatta Holloway. DJ Oji’s “The Good Ol Dayz” brilliantly incorporates Holloway’s “Love Sensation”, showcasing her unforgettable voice in a new light.

A Disco-Infused Funky House Extravaganza

The set also features an array of Disco House tracks. We revisit classics like “Saturday Night” by Duwayne Motley, “Move On Up” by Block & Crown, and a fresh take on Chic’s “Want Your Love” by Gary Tuohy, which keeps Nile Rogers’ iconic guitar work intact.

Our journey concludes with Jason Walker, a talent whose voice and style remind us of Simply Red’s Mick Hucknall. His track “Joy”, produced by Georgie Porgie, is the perfect finale to our three-hour musical odyssey.
