After a long gay slog through June where our Gay Pride dance podcasts are currently residing in the top two spots (again) of the Top 10 — Party Favorz is ready to get your summer party started with a brand new Peak Hour set that’s going to burn a hole through your earbuds.
We’ve picked an additional DJ service to add to our arsenal, which gives us a broader selection of the latest floor scorchers. The result is Lose CTRL, which has been on repeat for the past week because it’s that good!
Diplo performed his magic on the massive “Marea (We’ve Lost Dancing” by The Blessed Madonna taking the track to new levels.
Bright Lights takes Britney’s “Trouble For Me” and turns it into a progressive burner that’s worth the price of entry. Since the original is from 2012, we’re hoping Britney will unshackle herself from her father and his merry bandit of grifters and leechers who’ve been bleeding her dry. It may even be time for a new Diva Hall of Fame entry from Miss Spears in honor of the #freebritney momentum she’s receiving.
There are some hot Hot HOT crossover tracks out at the moment: Goodboys’ “Bongo Cha Cha Cha” adds some Latin summer flavor while Marshmello and Nitti Gritti team up with Megan Thee Stallion who delivers the epic battle of sexes takedown with “Bad Bitches.”
Other winners included are “Free” by Vintage Culture, Fancy Inc & Roland Clark, “Everybody’s Free (To Feel Good)” with Deeper Purpose doing the remix honors for Piero Pirupa’s chart-topping ode to the Rozalla classic, and “Emergency” by Tommy Trash & Yolanda Be Cool, which has the 80s kinda feel that beckons us to the dance floor.
With the recent success of “Slim Is Alive” by Richard Grey and Lissat, Eminem and Dr. Dre have had a bit of a resurgence lately but on the dance floor. This set includes “Forget About Dre” and Em’s “Without Me,” which begs the question why his music hadn’t been remixed sooner. All of these songs give a whole new vibe and feel fresh for those who didn’t grow up in the early millennium when Emenim struck gold.
We also have a valiant stab at the 2Pac (featuring Dr. Dre) classic “California Love,” which makes heavy use of the original while tacking on a deep progressive groove on both ends of the song.
80s mega rock stars Dire Straits (a personal favorite) have also enjoyed a comeback in the unlikely venue of House Music. In the spring Block & Crown and Lissat released “Swingin’ Sultan,” which is a housed-up version of “Sultans Of Swing.” It was in every DJs top 10 for months but we never included it in any of our sets because as good as it is, it just seemed to drag the set. Maybe that was a misstep on our part but that leads to “Money For Nothing.”
Dave Delly Umberto Balzanelli created an outstanding remix of the 1985 track, which was included in our Catch-Up 2021 pt. 1 as an easter egg. Now, Ben Phillips has dropped a mashup with the song and MK’s “17,” which is equally as good. Sometimes I’m floored at people’s creativity and the shit they manage to pull together.
