Well, f∩ck me twice on Sunday! Party Favorz (i.e. me, myself, I) has been in a pissy mood all week trying to get this CDN and caching plugin configured to my liking and it’s turned into an obsession of defeat. I don’t know what that means but it seems to fit the situation.
Since Last Splash was already in the bag and I had planned on taking a much-needed break afterwards — I decided to go ahead and drop this Labor Day weekend party set 7 days early.
You’ll notice a lot of Block & Crown remixes in this set as I’ve only recently gotten access to an entire catalog of their work through one of my DJ services. Many of these songs never see the light of day on Beatport or Traxsource but are DJ exclusives (likely because of licensing issues). There’s not a lot known about this duo other than they appear to be filling the gap left behind by Almighty and 7th Heaven who have been staples in the gay dance arena for several decades.
While their brand isn’t strictly geared towards gay audiences as you’ll notice their work ends up on our Dance Club, Disco House and Peak Hour series — they’re remarkably agile and easily adapt to whatever they’re working on. In the last couple of years, they started remixing other artist’s tracks and have recently embarked on creating original songs for the ZYX Music label (another blast from the past that’s still pumping out great dance music).
Another notable duo that’s more recently entered this arena are Nacho Chapado & Ivan Gomez whose Guareber Recordings produced earworms with big tribal circuit beats and have now expanded into power disco house tracks and mashups much like Block & Crown are doing with great success. It’s not clear if their Disco Gurls and Ghostmasters monikers are indeed themselves or ghost DJs working under the Guareber Recordings label but they’ve definitely hit on something as there’s lots of room and plenty of source material to sample and mashup from the 70’s, 80’s, 90’s and the early millennium.
Then of course there’s the Party Favorz favorite Purple Disco Machine, whose remixes and remakes of historical dance classics and current pop and Indie songs brings everything into his own little disco universe has exploded on the dance scene making him one of the most sought after DJs right now.
Throw all this together with brand new dance gems and cheesy remakes of 80’s love songs and you got yourself the most EPIC T-Dance set I’ve put out to date.
As mentioned earlier, I plan on taking a couple of weeks off from the podcast to recharge my batteries and hopefully get this g*ddamned caching plugin properly configured as well as the app for Party Favorz, which was all working great until it wasn’t. The last one isn’t on me but the underlying structure supporting it — mainly Microsoft.
