Deep & Funky 2007 pt. 2 | Expanded and Remastered | Top Dance Hits of the Year

As promised, I’m sending part 2 of the Deep & Funky 2007 Year-end Edition. This set is packed with several of my personal favorites including Booty Luv’s “Boogie 2nite”, Cahill’s “Trippin On You” Degrees of Motion’s updated “Do You Want It Right Now” Tony Moran & Martha Wash’s “Keep Your Body Working” Nowak’s Boogie Oogie…

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…

BackSpin Addicted To Bass

Addicted to Bass | BackSpin

Party Favorz is back with the second half of the early millennial BackSpin throwback posted yesterday.   Addicted to Bass follows in the same steps as the earlier set with really deep, dark and delicious beats, all of which were monster hits at the time of their release.  The sounds here are as fresh now as…

BackSpin Feels So Good

Feels So Good | BackSpin

Happy Friday everyone!  As you can see, Party Favorz has been able to keep the doors open because of the AWESOMENESS of you folks.  I want to give a BIG-ASS thanks to those of you whose donations made all of this possible.  Seriously, your generosity really means a lot to me and I can’t begin…

House Classics v6 1 e1478226891907

Movin’ Too Fast | Millennial House Classics v6

As promised, I’m sending up the sixth and final set in the Millennial House Classics series and this IS  a monster!  Movin’ Too Fast is the final layer of what are the most influential house classics from the first 10 years of the millennium.  From Bob Marley vs. Funkstar De Luxe [Sun Is Shining] to…

House Classics v5 5 1 e1478226905637

Can’t Get Enough | Millennial House Classics v5

Picking up where we left off, Can’t Get Enough of the Millennial House Classics series takes us up around the bend for the final stretch due next week.  There are so many personal favorites on this particular set that it reads like a who’s who list of massive House Classics from that time period.  Then…

House Classics v4 1 e1478226860136

Get Up n’ Dance | Millennial House Classics v4

You might have been asking yourself “whatever happened to the rest of those Millennial House Classics he had been promising?”  Seriously dude, WTF?  Well, that question has been answered because I’m laying down the fourth installment.  These have all been in the can for some time now, but I had decided to space them out…

House Classics v31

Release Your Mind | Millennial House Classics v3

Party Favorz is back with the third installment of the Millennial House Classics series.  “Release Your Mind” delves into the seriously straight house hits from the first ten years, which includes Agnes’s global hit “Release Me” from the end of the first decade and signaled a shift in direction for house music, all the while…

House Classics v2

Turn It Up | MIllennial House Classics v2

What exactly constitutes a “house classic?”  For that matter, what makes any song a classic?  Generally, we think songs that were so huge back in the day and had universal appeal are classics.  Sure, they are but what about a song that was regional or only received minor play but for some reason or another…

House Classics v1

Let’s Get Busy | Millennial House Classics v1

I started this project earlier this year and had been working on it off and on between other posts.  Frankly, it was finished a few months ago and I had shelved it until now.  Millennial House Classics is basically an extension of the original 90s House Classics but focuses on the first ten years of…

Back Spin 2 240

Back Spin v3

I logged into work this morning only to be kicked out, which left me scratching my head. I went back and checked my schedule and it seems my company went in and cancelled my early hours this morning leaving me time to go ahead and post the next installment of Back Spin. I have to…

Back Spin 3 240

Back Spin v2

I finally had some free time to post some sets in the Back Spin series that I had been promising but sat on for several months. BS2 and the companion to this set BS3 track the mid to late millennium burgeoning underground EDM scene. Actually, it was the tipping point before the mainstream acceptance I…

Back Spin 240

Back Spin v1

After sorting through all the recent promos and moving them to their respective folder based on genre (most to the recycle bin) I have to say I was unimpressed.  So much so, there was no way I was going to eek out a decent Spring Edition so quick. So I decided to do something I…

2009 Year End Edition Purple

Year-end Edition 2009 v4 | Top Dance Hits of the Year

When I was a kid, I used to mow lawns for money to pay for my records.  I never received an allowance and my dad wouldn’t pay me to mow the lawn (though I still had other chores), so I started mowing all the neighbor’s lawns.  I charged $10 a job unless they had an…

2009 Year End Edition Red

Year-end Edition 2009 v3 | Top Dance Hits of the Year

2009 was the year that online dance music retailers really solidified and grabbed their slice of the ever-growing music market.  As online legal distribution for dance music begins to really take off, there are now a plethora of these sites vying for a piece of the pie.  No one has been more successful at putting…

2009 Year End Edition Teal

Year-end Edition 2009 v2 | Top Dance Hits of the Year

2009 was a good year for the DJ/Producer.  As I mentioned in my first post, David Guetta was successful in bridging the gap between electro-house and radio.  Not unlike the 70s when disco bubbled up from the clubs and became mainstream, electro and funky house are well on their way to becoming the new Top…

2009 Year End Edition Yellow

Year-End Edition 2009 v1 | Top Dance Hits of the Year

I can’t think of a better way to start 2010 off than to remember 2009.  Okay, maybe not everything from last year, rather the fantastic house music that made us dance, sing and celebrate!  2009 was the year a diva was realized.  Yup, I’m talking about Kelly Rowland.  So she found herself without a record…

Year End Edition 2008 e1478346197822

Year-End Edition 2008 v8 | Top Dance Hits of the Year

Well, it’s been one year, over 80,000 downloaded mixes (includes two separate Podbean accounts that were eventually merged and a 4shared and Megaupload account that was later rolled into Podbean) and 200+ subscribers.  All I can say is WOW!  I never in a million years would have dreamt that people actually appreciate what it is…

Year End Edition 2008 e1478346197822

Year-End Edition 2008 v7 | Top Dance Hits of the Year

No doubt artists like Katherine Ellis and Amanda Wilson had a stellar year working with a variety producers.  While not everything hit as well for Amanda, her releases at the latter part of the year were spectacular, particularly “Keep the Fire Burning” with the Outsiders.  That slice of heave produces two top-notch mixes by Freemasons…

Year End Edition 2008 e1478346197822

Year-End Edition 2008 v6 | Top Dance Hits of the Year

After finally having some beautiful weather for the past several days, the ATL is back to cold, wet and dreary.  I guess I knew it wouldn’t last, it seldom does this time of year, but I’ll take what I can get.  As we get closer to the final year-end mixes, I just want everyone to…

Year End Edition 2008 e1478346197822

Year-End Edition 2008 v5 | Top Dance Hits of the Year

2008 was an unprecedented year for politics.  The first serious black (Obama) and female (Clinton) candidates for President duked it out in a primary that received more votes than any presidential election in history.  Huge sums of money were raised like no one had ever seen before and had the Republicans salivating at the future…

Year End Deep and Funky 2007 240 1

Year-end Edition 2007 | Deep & Funky | Top Dance Hits of the Year

This 2-set series has been expanded and remastered. You can find it here. The evening before: As I am writing this on Christmas Eve, I can’t help but look back on the year that was. For me, it wasn’t exactly the best. However, when I really do some soul searching, I realize just how fortunate I…

Year end Edition 2007 v2

Year-end Edition 2007 | volume 2 | Top Dance Hits of the Year

Year end Edition 2007

Year-End Edition 2007 | volume 1 | Top Dance Hits of the Year

It’s that time of year again; and what a roller coaster year this has been; not just for me in my professional life or for Britney, Amy, Paris, Nicole & Lindsey, the flailing housing market, rising gas prices or even a sadistic administration that is the true access of evil; but more importantly club music.…
