Kim English - The House Sessions

Kim English 2019 | The Definitive House Sessions

In furtherance of our Legacy series that honors the late Kim English, I wanted to cover the flipside to Kim’s career. Ms. English was originally from Chicago and like many famous artists that preceded her, has roots in her hometown church singing gospel. House music’s roots are embedded in […]

Kim English 2019 | The Definitive Diva Series

I’m sad to announce that one of the most prolific and talented divas Kim English has passed away at the very young age of 48. With a total of 13 top 10 Billboard Club/Dance tracks and 8 that reached #1 on the chart, the self-penned tracks spoke of her […]

Catching Up With Purple Disco Machine

Catching Up with Purple Disco Machine

Party Favorz is back with my birthday gift to myself that I decided to share with the world. This latest Legacy induction is none other than the musically talented Purple Disco Machine. German native Tino Piontek aka Purple Disco Machine got his start as far back as 2009 with […]

Coldplay Legacy

Coldplay | Legacy | The Megamix

After the overwhelmingly positive response from the U2 dance music Legacy set last week, I decided to add a companion set featuring their contemporaries, Coldplay. Coldplay is a mega rock band that originally formed in 1996, which includes lead singer Chris Martin, Jonny Buckland, Guy Berryman, and Will Champion. They […]

U Legacy

U2 | Legacy | The Megamix

The 1980’s produced some of the most iconic artists and groups of any generation. From Madonna, Michael Jackson, and Prince to R.E.M. The Police, and Bruce Springsteen there was something in these artists style, brand, and message that triggered our emotions and fealty. U2 is one such group that […]

Dead Or Alive The Diva Series

Dead or Alive | The Diva Series

Party Favorz is wrapping up our Back to the 80’s edition with the final induction into the Diva Hall of Fame with the gender-bending and ultra-influential Dead or Alive. Dead or Alive was an English pop band formed in 1980 in Liverpool; finding success in the mid-1980s, releasing seven singles that made the Top 40 […]

Aretha Franklin Legacy

Aretha Franklin [1942 – 2018] | Legacy [Updated]

Aretha Franklin was originally inducted into the Diva Hall of Fame in 2016. Her entire history and back catalog is not inconsequential and for music buffs (fanatics) like myself, I was completely mesmerized by her work once I really started digging into her earlier catalog that was before my time. […]

Avicii Wake Me Up

Wake Me Up | Dance Music Tribute to the Legendary Avicii

With the untimely passing of Avicii, I thought it would be appropriate to honor the man who provided the soundtrack for an entire generation.  His music didn’t just lift us up, it inspired and gave us hope; most importantly, it made us dance. “Wake Me Up” is a dance […]

Whitney 2018 The Diva Series

Whitney 2018 Thank You Mix | The Diva Series

In the final days of 2017, I thought I’d show some appreciation for the folks that have donated, contributed and made comments by sending up a thank you mix by Whitney (no last name required) to take us into 2018. You folks are the only reason I’m sticking this […]

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 […]

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 […]
