System Edition 2009 v3 | Take 3

Share

I have to tell you that I have been listening to this mix over and over and barely scraped the first two.  While I really like the first take of this edition, I was having a very difficult time with the second.  I sat down last night and listened to it all the way through, and it was a hard pill to swallow.  How many times have you ever heard a DJ fess up about the poor quality of song choices used in a mix?  Probably never.  I’ll be listening to the fourth and final mix tonight since I haven’t even touched on that one yet.  If it’s as good as this one, then I may go back on Saturday and combine the best elements of the first two mixes to make one single mix and then re-post it.  If I do that, then the first two will be removed.  It’s my anal-retentive nature to perfect on something that otherwise could be much better.  Either way, I’ll let you know in tomorrow’s post.

For now, this mix is rock solid from start to finish.  It' starts out with a bang and pumps the pulse straight from your ears down to your toes!  Word of warning, this is NSFW.  The first three songs drop the “F” bomb repeatedly; so if you wanna play this back while working you might want to cue it at the fifth song to prevent offending your colleagues.  After the booty shaking romp of the first quarter of the mix, the tone drops a little into the massive “Devil Toy” by Hoxton Whores.  If the song sounds all too familiar, that’s because it is basically a pumped-up dub version of the classic “Make the World Go Round” by Sandy B.  Original? Not.  But, it’s a lot of fun.  Moving on, we get into what has already proven to be a massive track in all its forms by Faithless, “Music Matters”.  The Axwell mix does more justice than you can imagine.  In fact, I think if this song were housed up a bit, this could potentially be a major crossover.  Simplistic, but certainly beautiful.  That flows right into “Atlas” by Digital Enemy and Carl Hanaghan.  The Vision mix is a true testament to his diversity.  Thereafter, we move into some more indie progressive mixes with Arno Cost and Avicii, which provide some great male vocals without sounding cheesy.  Avicii’s “Excited” helps levitate us back into the heavier and deeper “Pa Po Pon” by Mowgli.  Robbie Rivera is at the top of his game with this floor filler.  Purposely repetitive, it will stick in your head like glue long after it’s over.  Finally, we switch gears to what I might consider a more commercial prog house with Kleerup and Bad Boy Bill.  “Longing For Lullabies” and “Falling Anthem” are both serious contenders for radio play and insidiously catchy.  Finally, we drop back down to the low tempo “Panama” by Yvel and Tristan.  Its simplistic beauty will wash out everything that came before and make you forget you just took a long journey through the underground; albeit an enjoyable ride and worth taking again.

That’s all I got on tap today.  Don’t forget I’ve started a “Party Favorz Fan Page” on Facebook.  So if you haven’t signed up yet, whatcha waiting for?  I’ll be back tomorrow with the final set in this series.  I’ll let everyone know tomorrow what I decide on the first two mixes.  Until then…enjoy!

Party Favorz is a series of commercial and underground club mixes that I started making for friends in 1999. In 2007, at the urging of friends, I decided to move everything online and the Party Favorz blog was born. Whether you’re gay, straight, black, white, pink or purple, Party Favorz has no boundaries and everyone IS welcome here. Comments and suggestions are always appreciated; in fact, they are encouraged. Always remember that despite the name tag, Party Favorz DOES NOT promote nor endorse the use of illegal substances. Frankly, house music is the only drug your body needs to have a good time. LIVE, WORK, PLAY DANCE . . . just do it responsibly. Now on to the music! Keith a.k.a. K j A M
