Party Favorz is back with the annual Holiday Edition featuring HOT Santas’ and even HOTTER big room, circuit, and tribal house music!
Folks, I worked this shit out! It kicks off with the Offer Nissim remix of “I’m Standing With You” by Chrissy Metz from the “Breakthrough” soundtrack, which is currently riding up the Dance Club charts. While the song might as well be the Pretenders’ “I’ll Stand By You,” I expect it to be this year’s “This Is Me” or “Let It Go.”
Things quickly heat up as the set launches into some peak-hour tribal madness and hold it there pretty much throughout. We’ve brand-spanking new tracks from Dua Lipa, Selena Gomez, Galantis & Dolly Parton, Madonna, Debby Holiday, Sam Smith, Judy Garland (say what?), and the entertainer of the year Lizzo.
We also have the massive new track “Just A Lie” from the indomitable Kristine W. Pt. 1 of this release contains a bevy of remixes that are ripe for any dancefloor. The Tony Moran and Erick Ibiza mix included here is stellar with a few caveats. Clocking in at over 9 minutes, the remix feels a bit outdated and frankly unfinished. After the intro, it goes into an extended repetition of the same beats with virtually no build for 2 minutes. Instead of capitalizing on the awesome riff developed for the track it includes several unnecessary drops.
I took a blunt knife to the whole track and created my mix show version emphasizing its strengths to make it shine while retaining and shortening two of the drops. All the elements of a great mix are there but it was stretched way beyond what’s considered reasonable in the age of streaming and waning attention spans.
I’ve always included tracks from independent labels like Swishcraft (Matt Consola) but have been discovering the awesomeness of other independent labels like Guareber Recordings headed by Nacho Chapado and Ivan Gomez as well as Queen House Music, EPride Music Digital (Edson Pride), and Bearlin Records amongst several others. There’s so much unheard goodness being spun out from these mighty labels that are often overlooked that allows me to keep these sets fresh.
Holiday Edition 2019 is the first set where half of the recordings come from these labels. Their output is so great that it’s difficult to keep up as I grabbed a few tracks from the summer. Just remember, there isn’t anyone rounding these great sounds like Party Favorz. I do the hours of listening and compiling so you don’t have to.
I hope everybody has a fabulous weekend. Until the next time…ENJOY!
