Back 2 the 80’s pt. 2 | The Monster Mix

I’m back with of Back 2 the 80’s pt. 2, a monster mix of classic dance hits from the era. I’ve got enough to likely make a third set and maybe even throw in a New Wave version as well. If I do, I’ll post those later in the year. Originally, this was going to be one giant…

Back the 80's pt. 1

Back 2 the 80’s pt. 1 | The Monster Mix

Party Favorz is back with Back 2 the 80’s, a monster mix of commercial dance classics from the era. After releasing the Trash Disco series last year, I knew I had to move a decade up as the genre that defined “dance” and “disco” has substantially changed with the introduction of the drum machine and synthesizers.

If anyone watches AMC’s ‘Catch and Halt’ Fire’ you get a really good feel for the time, the music and the burgeoning scene in…

Hit That Perfect Beat

Hit That Perfect Beat! | BackSpin 80’s

After last year’s 70’s indulgence with the Trash Disco series, Party Favorz is moving a decade forward. In typical fashion, I try to do something that’s not so obvious, which better reflects who I was and what I was into by the end of the decade that was the 80’s. I was a disco kid…

The Diva Series Pet Shop Boys

Pet Shop Boys | Mixed-UP I & II | Pet Shop Boys Tribute

With the recent release of Pet Shops Boys latest single “Love etc.” and the highly anticipated “Yes” album to be released on March 23rd (in the U.K. only, U.S. will follow later this year), I decided it was time to dig out a mega-mix I put together in 2007 for Rick, the ultimate ‘pethead’.  For…
