Retro Cool: May 2024’s Chill Out Sessions

It’s been a hot minute since our last Chill Out Session drop, but we haven’t forgotten about all of you who enjoy your dance music on the cooler side. In fact, our latest edition of Chill Out Sessions takes a nostalgic step back to our Mixtape Sessions. These sets were laidback affairs but leaned towards a more commercial realm of music from that era. With the recent explosion of the Afro House genre, many of these tracks find a better-suited home in this series.

DJs seem to have only recently discovered percussion as if it were something new, yet it has been a staple in dance remixes since the 90s, lending these songs a warmer vibe. Back then we called it Progressive House, which will undoubtedly resurface as the genre du jour of the moment any time now /s

While some of these tracks indeed fall into the Afro House category, most do not. However, this doesn’t diminish their quality, beauty or resilience. On the contrary, they are exceptional, and we’re all about top-notch dance music here at Party Favorz. Nevertheless, many of these tunes are so laid-back that they might not fit the dance floor vibe but rather serve as background music while you unwind during your drive home from work or need some zen time. While we’ll use some of these songs in our Club Fusion series (because we stay on trend around here), many wouldn’t make the cut but deserve to be aired.

I won’t spoil the surprise by going into detail about each track today. Instead, I invite you to let the music be a delightful discovery for your discerning ears. Even if our previous Chill Out offerings weren’t your cup of tea, I encourage you to give this one a chance. I believe you’ll be pleasantly surprised.

Until next time… ENJOY!
