Gay Atlanta Pride

Gay Atlanta Pride Beats 2018 | Circuit, Tribal, House Music From the Gayest City in the South!

Atlanta doesn’t celebrate Pride until early October when the weather is reasonably accommodating. Since there have been a plethora of last-minute Pride-themed tracks that have been released, I decided to green-light a set featuring brand-spanking new tracks. With so much coming out lately, I thought we could get a jump on the annual Summer Edition…

I’m back with of Back 2 the 80’s pt. 2, a monster mix of classic dance hits from the era. I’ve got enough to likely make a third set and maybe even throw in a New Wave version as well. If I do, I’ll post those later in the year. Originally, this was going to be one giant…

Back the 80's pt. 1

Back 2 the 80’s pt. 1 | The Monster Mix

Party Favorz is back with Back 2 the 80’s, a monster mix of commercial dance classics from the era. After releasing the Trash Disco series last year, I knew I had to move a decade up as the genre that defined “dance” and “disco” has substantially changed with the introduction of the drum machine and synthesizers. You’ll notice…

Destinys Child The House Sessions

Destiny’s Child | The House Sessions

Painting a picture of Destiny’s Child dance history would not be complete without the soulful renditions of their tracks. This is where Maurice Joshua comes into the picture. Much like his contemporaries Frankie Knuckles, Todd Terry, Louie Vega, Kenny “Dope” Gonzalez, Eric Kupper to name a few, Joshua had been producing and remixing tracks since the…

Happy House Classics pt 2

Happy House Classics from the Millennium vol. 2 | Don’t Shit on My Parade

To be honest, I created the Happy House Classics for myself and was using it as a stop-gap between posts. However, the traffic numbers on the volume 1 episode are through the roof! I look at Google traffic, Podbean, Apple Music, and Google Play stats to paint a full picture and it’s outstanding. I guess…

Happy House Classics pt. 1

Happy House Classics from the Millennium vol. 1 | Because Shit Happens

When I first sat down to compile the tracklist and then create Happy House Classics, I was more than pleased with the final output. When I went back and listened to it, I realized that I had created yet another Pride Classics set which heavily overlapped with previous efforts. Other than the weather being horrendous…

We’ve reached the end of the 2017 Year In Dance featuring the top dance hits of the year.

Songs that are significant to the current pop and underground culture of dance…

Year In Dance 2017 pt 2

Year In Dance 2017 pt. 2 | The Top Dance Hits of the Year!

Despite what I may have declared about the state of dance music in my last post, 2017 was not without some fantastic gems. Many of the songs fall into the electronic dance music category but aren’t really dance, rather sweet concoctions that have been remixed to give the originals an added boost and extend their playability. Excellent…

Year In Dance 2017 pt. 1

90s House Classics v10

Let There Be House | 90’s House Classics pt. 10

Let There Be House marks the end of the 90’s House Classics series for the moment. I felt like I had neglected this important category of Party Favorz for too long making imperative it be refreshed. Between all of these sets and the Millennial House Classics and several of the Legacy series, I think I’ve made…

90s House Classics v9

Surrender Yourself | 90’s House Classics pt. 9

And the 90’s House Classics just keep on rolllin’! Surrender Yourself is chalk-full of classic house music favorites but also has what I like to call the early incarnations of that circuit sound. The Junior Vasquez remix of Body To Body (Keep In Touch) by Shades of Love and Soul Solutions remix of Changes by…

90s House Classics v8

Such A Good Feeling | 90’s House Classics pt. 8

HOLY SMOKES! Party Favorz keeps the festivities moving along with the long overdue Such A Good Feeling – 90’s House Classics part 8.

90s House Techno Eurodance pt 1

90’s House, Techno & Eurodance Classics pt. 1

As I had mentioned in my previous post, these next two sets are an extension of Backspin v4 [90’s Euro-Dance] and Backspin v5 [The Cheese Mix]. I went beyond Eurodance in these sets and threw in some borderline House Classics like Enigma’s Sadness, 49er’s Don’t You Love Me, The Original I Luv You Baby, etc. that…

Simply Red Legacy

Simply Red | Legacy

I am wrapping up the week and possibly Party Favorz with a Legacy request by a member who has supported my efforts and bailed my ass out more times than I can count. Simply Red Legacy is the perfect synthesis of soulful R&B pop and House Music, which was indicative of the time these songs…

David Morales Legacy pt 3

David Morales | Legacy pt. 3

This is David Morales Legacy pt. 3, which delves more into the type of house music he’s known for. Of course I included Mariah Carey’s ‘My All’ which is epic in every way possible and a remix that I NEVER even knew existed! As ya’ll know, I am a HUGE Kristine W fan and how…

David Morales Legacy pt 2

David Morales | Legacy pt. 2

David Morales Legacy pt. 2 delves into the more commercial aspects of his career. Many of these songs were wildly successful not just in the clubs but on Top 40 radio as well. The songs stay true to his style but showcase a more diverse side with heavy influences in the Urban and Latin musical…

Deep Funky

Deep & Funky 2007 pt. 1 | Expanded and Remastered | Top Dance Hits of the Year

In my last post, I asked if anyone had some older mixes that I long ago lost due to a hard drive crash. I want to give a HUGE shoutout to Dean and Marshall for making it happen. The BPM Edition 2009 v5, which was originally 4 sets has been combined into two and is…

Gay Chicago Pride Beats 2017 1

Gay Chicago Pride Beats 2017

SURPRISE! Party Favorz was commissioned by one of our loyalist to create a Pride mix specifically for them. Over the years, I’ve done these for birthday parties, where folks would give them out as part of goody bags, as well as for various charitable events. I’m not sure what Samuel plans on doing with this…

Gay Anthems For a New Generation | Pride Classics 2017

I’ve been teasing out Gay Anthems For a New Generation  what seems like forever, but it’s finally here! From track list, editing to tweaking and remastering, I’ve been working on this bad boy off and on in-between all the other shit going on in my life. I can honestly say, that I am very proud…

Free, Gay & Happy | Gay Pride Anthems 2017 vol. 5

There is a gold pot at the end of this long rainbow journey Party Favorz has taken and we’ve almost reached it. I finally got my grubby hands on the official remixes of Free, Gay & Happy by the Coming Out Crew featuring the fabulous Sabrina Johnston. I had always used a remake by Verde…
