I know I said I wouldn’t be back until after the 4th, but it’s holiday time here in the US and what good would it be if you didn’t at least have something new from me for your extended weekend?
As you can see, I’m trying something different with the titles. Going forward, I’ll be changing the titles up and matching it with it’s corresponding edition so you know what to expect. The Original Edition (Pride, Summer, Autumn, etc.) will remain the same and I haven’t decided if I’m going to change the Chrome Edition either. BPM and T-Dance, will definitely be getting re-tagged.
You also might notice the cover art isn’t flowing with my standard BPM Editions, however these wallpapers I grabbed from Out & About Las Vegas were just too perfect to not use. You’ll find that there is a storyline. First he (hottie in the picture) gets ready for the evening. The second cover will be him meeting someone and the third, well I’m pretty sure you can guess what happens. Don’t worry mom and dad, it’s PG-13 and pretty darn clever if you ask me.
Kicking things into gear, Timbaland and Justin work out the Carry Out. Considering I wasn’t feeling the last two Timbaland singles with Justin and another with Nelly, I think it’s the kick-ass Chew Fu remix that makes this song. Keeping the energy tight is Elevated, the latest featuring the I’m Your Goddess, Tara McDonald. The Morgan Page remix of Fantasy by Nadi Ali is a progressive workout that stands equal to the trance version I featured a while back.
Daruso has been riding high with Since You Been Gone, so I took on the Buzz Junkies production, which was the least commercial of the bunch. This is followed by some serious Miami house and great vocals before tempering down a bit with a classic remake, Do For Love, a rework of the old Bobby Caldwell Top 40 hit What You Won’t Do For Love from 1979. This is one of my top ten all-time favorite songs, so I was definitely interested to see what Vinny and Jaidene did with it. Out of all the mixes that accompanied the track, Dave Aude won hands down. Instead of trying to make it into some big electro number, Dave takes us down the road of smooth and easy progressive without going all over the place. If there were ever a nice update of this song 30 years later, this would be it.
In keeping with the momentum, The Temper Trap deliver their latest Love Lost. I have to admit I am blown away by this song. The soulful vocals sound very much like Roland Gift of Fine Young Cannibals fame. While this isn’t going to light up any dance floors, the Rollo & Sister Bliss mix is perfect for poolside parties.
Another fabulous summer song, I’ve been all over lately is Mark Picchiotti and Sun Drae’s Let the Music Guide You. This is absolutely beautiful and perfect for summer. Expect a funkier version to make an appearance on the upcoming Beach House 2010.
I realize many of you may be scratching your heads about what’s next, but you gotta give Enrique his due. Since he crossed over in 1999, he’s done a fantastic job of keeping his ears on the floor, dance floor that is. All of his songs are accompanied by amazing remixes by some of the top talent of the moment. In this case, Avicii has been ultra hot lately, with his big room progressive productions. That’s why I also paired I Like It with Rhythm Master’s I Feel Love. It seems to me I had a remake of this Donna Summer classic sung by a guy last year, but I can’t find it. That version was a dead-on turn of the original. This version however, does a complete 360 from the original by dropping the familiar pulsating synth originally performed by Giorgio Moroder. I’m a huge fan of Donna and the original, but I am equally impressed with this whole new perspective of a classic disco song.
For the GaGa monsters, I added one of the three Monster mixes that I showcased in my recent G-Spot. DJ Oskar does a kick-ass progressive mash-up that fits the song so perfectly, as well as this set, I had no choice but to include it.
Finally, things wrap-up with So Lonely by Chris Sorbello. This up-tempo progressive number hits all the right spots and is a great jumping off point before we pick things up again with part 2.
While you’re enjoying the fireworks this weekend; remember it’s rubies, diamonds, emeralds and sapphires (one for each color shooting in the sky); feel free to send them attached to a lovely sterling silver bracelet in care of Party Favorz [grin’].
Happy 4th everybody, ENJOY!
