Madonna — The Ultimate Dance Collection Volume 1

Party Favorz is ecstatic to unveil The Ultimate Dance Classics, a dazzling celebration of the inimitable dancefloor queen… MADONNA! Only two sets have been mastered thus far, each posing its unique set of challenges, yet presenting a fantastic journey through Madonna’s iconic dance hits.

The first set revisits all her 80s dance hits, with a few extending into 1990. This period marked the genesis of Madonna’s career, where she not only etched her name in the annals of music history but also paved the way for women to become outright superstars. From the nude photos published in Playboy, the tumultuous marriage with actor Sean Penn, to the Pepsi tour deal controversy surrounding the “Like A Prayer” video, Madonna was a master at creating or adeptly managing controversy.

Volume 1 of The Ultimate Dance Classics encapsulates these years with a stunning array of dancefloor burners and chart-topping pop songs that defined the decade.

One of the unique aspects of mixing 80s music is its reliance on electronic music based on a simple snare drum that maintained perfect timing. This pattern, consistent in mixes from Disconet, Hot Tracks, and Ultimix, facilitated seamless transitions for DJs, eliminating the worry about the key of a song. My primary focus was on the flow, diligently curating and arranging tracks to ensure a cohesive and purposeful transition.

This is my second attempt at crafting an 80s set for Madonna, and I’m delighted with the result. The way these sets have materialized, including the upcoming Volume 2, far surpassed my expectations.

For those not in the loop, Madonna is gearing up to release “Finally Enough Love,” a celebratory compilation of her 50 dance songs that topped the Billboard Dance Club chart. While these tracks are edits, some of which are incredibly rare, I urge you to support her work, as fans have been eagerly waiting for this release. All of her hits, including this compilation, are available for streaming on Spotify.

I’ll return next week with Volume 2. Until then…ENJOY!
