Halloween is just around the corner; the time of year where all the queens attempt to outdo each other with the most outrageous and fabulous getup our deranged minds can conjure. To make the holiday even more fun, the ATL is celebrating our very first Pride over the weekend, ensuring a larger than normal turnout. Think about it, Halloween and Pride all at once, that’s a lot of goodness wrapped up in one weekend. Even better, Pride returns to Piedmont Park since the drought of 2007-08. In fact, the city council just authorized all the bars to maintain extended serving hours. So, if the weather can hold up and sunshine and cooler temps prevail, this should prove to be an outstanding event. Then again, I’m looking at the weather for today in Google and it shows sunshine, when in fact we are still overcast and 59 degrees. I guess we’ll just have to think positive. The sad part is, I won’t be able to attend. Those of you that follow me on my personal page on Facebook, know that I am currently undergoing physical therapy after my recent surgery. With setbacks on the therapy side, I don’t think I would be able to hobble around the park. It’s a shame because, in the spirit of treats, I had planned to hit the park and few bars in my PF T-shirt and give away a bunch of promo CDs. It’s something I’ve done several times before and a lot of fun; just not this go around. I’ll go more into detail tomorrow on my next update on Facebook.
In the meantime, I’m serving up a seriously HOT circuit adventure for all the boys. Initially, I was concerned because there just wasn’t that much out at the moment and the Autumn Edition had pretty much sapped out all the new music. Never fear! I started scouring Beatport for some cool house tunes that would mix in well with what I already had and came up with a real winner in diversity and depth. Let’s face it, all tribal beats all the time gets boring and you can expect I’ll be going back to my mixed bag method on these mixes in the future. I think it just ads more interest and color to the overall set and keeps you (especially me) from getting bored.
The hot tunes to single out here are Depeche Mode’s “Perfect” the follow up to “Wrong” with Ralphi doing the remix honors and let’s just say this is smoking! Bingo Players deliver “Devotion” in a HUGE way. For those that aren’t familiar with the original, it was a #1 club hit by Nomad in 1991. Bingo Players take the original and beef it upbringing this classic to a whole new generation of house lovers. Another remake of sorts is Malente’s “I Like It” which utilizes the famous KC & the Sunshine Band riff from “(That’s the Way) I Like It. Currently, this song has been sitting in Beatport and Juno’s Top Ten for well over a month. Maybe not your typical fare, but I assure you once the groove get’s going, it works in a big way.
Indie darling from the UK, Florence and the Machine, deliver the infectious “You Got the Love” with wonderfully unique vocals while Steve Pitron and Max Sanna re-work it for the dancefloor. This has been a surefire winner for me and something I’ve enjoyed listening to over and over. I brought back Ron Perkov’s “Miss You” only because I’m really getting into the Mike Rizzo mix. This song has an abundance of mixes, and I had used Tony Moran’s take in the Autumn Edition. Other’s prefer Manny’s take, but I’m generally over him at the moment. I also added Agne’s massive hit “Release Me” with Razor n’ Guido doing the honors. I have to say it’s almost like they never left us. God bless the Razor n’ Guido.
I included Mariah’s “IWKWLI” which for all the mixes it came with, the Nu Addiction club mix is the only one that even comes remotely close to doing it justice. I’m hoping Sony will pull out the money bag and serve us with a second set of mixes by Tony or Chris (amongst many possibilities) as a good contrast to the Mickey Mouse productions that were delivered. One can always dream.
Finally, I want to send out a friendly reminder to everyone who hasn’t yet voted for Party Favorz in the Blogger’s Choice Awards, to please take a moment of your time and help this site out by voting. It would mean a lot to me if everyone that reads, streams and downloads from this site would do me this one little favor. Thanks for your time and consideration.
That’s about it for now. Here’s to a fabulous weekend for all! I have the second set all ready to go and should have that available for everyone on Monday. Until then, ENJOY!
