A Very Funky House X-Mas | Funky House Music Grooves to Get You Through the Holidays


As promised, Party Favorz is delivering a surprise set of funky house music grooves to help get you through the holidays! A Very Funky House X-Mas arrives just in time for those that need a spiritual boost during what can be a trying time for many. Bad sweaters, eggnog, fruitcake, unruly family members who support Trump…yes, all these things tend to distract us from what is supposed to be a time for celebration and the gathering of family and friends.

I always looked forward to this time of year as our family would go to the Momo and Boonpa’s house, a couple of smoking, drinking, and poker-playing rabble-rousers, who made get-togethers fun. Since their death many years ago, the extended family has fractured and pretty much gone their own ways. Now that my father passed earlier this year, things just aren’t the same anymore. With my sister and mother living in Dallas and me in Atlanta, it’s all the more depressing. Then again, Rick and I have our quiet celebration of sorts and sometimes spend it with friends, but even then, it’s just not the same.

Regardless, we all have our own way of connecting during this time of year (or not), so Party Favorz is here to help you along and hopefully put a little jingle in your step and a smile on your face.

A Very Funky House X-Mas consists of Funky Disco House Music, Soulful, Deep House and some Classic Disco reworks. Remember I had dropped three tracks from the Jingle Electric 2018 that I was torn over. Well, I got them worked back in with a bevy of brand-spanking new tracks, which I think you’ll be delighted with.

As a reminder, the Year In Dance is being pushed out to the first two weeks of January. I’ve already started compiling the tracklist and am trying out something a little different this year. Just know that it’s still coming. That being said, the Blow Your Own Horn 2019, which is the annual year-end non-stop, roof-raising party mix is still on schedule for release right after Christmas. Though I haven’t started working on it yet, it’s a tradition around here that I’m not about to relinquish.

Once again, I want to thank Anthony S. for his over-the-top generous donation! Party Favorz has currently reached 85% of my year-end goal. Feel free to chip in and help me reach that goal so I can continue to provide the outstanding podcasts that fuel your everyday life!

I just set up a Content Delivery Network (CDN) for the site that will speed up load times in Europe, Australia, Asia, and South America. It may take several hours to fully propagate, so be patient if things are moving a bit slow in the meantime.

I will be back shortly after Christmas with the final blow-out of the year. Until then…Have a very Merry Christmas, Happy Hannakauh, or Happy Holiday! There’s a celebration somewhere waiting to be had.

Catching Up with Purple Disco Machine

Catching Up With Purple Disco Machine

Catching Up With Purple Disco MachineParty Favorz is back with my birthday gift to myself that I decided to share with the world. This latest Legacy induction is none other than the musically talented Purple Disco Machine.

German native Tino Piontek aka Purple Disco Machine got his start as far back as 2009 with his Deep Funk branded Disco House music project.

He appeared on my radar in 2013 with the release of the #1 Beatport Deep House track “My House.” From there, it was a slow build of originals and collaborations featuring some of the funkiest House Music tunes. Shortly thereafter, PDM was an in-demand producer for the likes of Jamiroquai,  New Order, Claptone, Faithless, Seeb, Ekkah, L’Tric, Shapeshifters, Hercules & Love Affair (a personal favorite), and Sigma with Paloma Faith; many of which appear in this set.

PDM has had a stellar 2018. His rework of the 90’s techno camp classic “Male Stripper” by Man 2 Man which includes one of Loleatta Holloway’s classic adlibs has gone on to be a massive success this year. From underground to mainstream clubs, you’ve no doubt heard various iterations of his “Dished (Male Stripper)” on Spotify and on dancefloors throughout the year. In fact, the song will end up on our Year End Best in Dance series.

PDM does NOT have a signature style, which would allow the listener to be able to say “that’s definitely…” which is a good thing. He’s fully adept at adapting his brand of disco and funk to the songs he’s given, allowing them to shine brighter on the dance floor. Whether it’s NuDisco, Deep House, Classic House or Indie Dance, PDM creates the grooves that make you wanna dance!

It’s not unlike Party Favorz to recognize up and coming talent in our Legacy series for those DJ’s/producers that are on the track to superstardom. By no means is his tribute meant to indicate the end of his career, as he’s only getting started. I expect bigger things from him in the coming years. Hey Madonna, if you’re reading this, tap this man for your next album!

It is my greatest pleasure to honor Purple Disco Machine with this tribute to his building legacy. Cheers to a future of more foot-stomping, booty-shaking, crowd-pleasing magic! ENJOY!

Disco Voyagé | Journey Through the Center of Funky House Music!

Disco Voyage

Disco VoyageThough it’s cold, drizzling, and frankly miserable, HAPPY FRIDAY anyway! Party Favorz is proud to roll-out the latest FunkyDiscoHouseShit to lift your spirits this weekend with Disco Voyagé.

If anyone needs to be lifted up, it sure as shit is me. When I tried to start my car this morning, it was completely dead. It was a complete system gone bonkers as everything came on but the engine wouldn’t turn over. The dashboard was lit up like a Christmas tree including battery, oil, and a series of messages including brake malfunction. These newer computerized cars that practically drive themselves, are not all they’re cracked up to be.

I realize, this happens to everyday folks all the time, but it just seems with me that it’s one thing after another. Sometimes, it feels like I’m cursed and every week brings a new headache.

Nevertheless, that’s not your problem. I’m just venting because I can.

I’m currently working on a new set for Underground House, meaning a whole bunch of new Tech-House hits coming your way next week. The week after that, I plan on a birthday surprise for myself (I deserve it) and will be delivering a new Legacy entry for one of my favorite DJ/producers of the moment. He’s only been around for several years, but the man is simply burning it up with his modern-day disco-infused remixes.

For now, I’ll just leave it at that, because this set is smoking HOT! Even the most dourer of you will be hard-pressed to not wanna get up and dance, once you take this for a spin. I’ll be back next week with something new. Until then…ENJOY!

I want to give a massive shoutout to Anthony S., Glenn A., Ignacio G., Terry C., Nicholas C., Paul B., Steve N., Daisuke M., Scotty O., and Albert R. for their donations! Party Favorz is truly a global platform as some of these donations came from Japan and Greece. You are much appreciated!

This is a known issue with Honda Civics since 2016 and has never been recalled much less fixed. My car is a 2017 with less than 7,000 miles on it. SMDH!

Summer Farewell 2018 pt. 2 | Soothing Funky Disco House

Summer Farewell Funky Disco House

Summer Farewell Funky Disco HouseForget everything I said about cooling days in my last post. We’re back into high digits and muggy weather and I expect it to continue for some time. Nevertheless, we’re still saying goodbye with the 2018 Summer Farewell pt. 2 set. This time around it’s all about Funky Disco House music.

So what do DJ Spinner, Bill Withers, Men At Work, David Bowie, Diana Ross, Donna Summer, Michael Jackson, Duck Sauce, Sugarhill Gang, Freemasons, Hall & Oates, and Anita Ward have in common? They are all featured in this set in one form or another. It may appear pretty eclectic but once you pop this on, it’ll all make sense.

This booty-shaking, rumpalicious set for the waning days of summer consists of House Music, Deep House, Soulful House and of course, my favorite genre, DISCO! I kept this set tight so there is no filler here; just soothing disco-house-music to enjoy these final days of summer before heading back to school.

I’ve started compiling the tracks for this year’s Fall Edition, so keep an eye out for that sometime next week. Until then…ENJOY!

Beach House 2018 | Funky Disco House for Your Summertime Fun!

Beach House 2018

Beach House 2018Just in time for your Fourth of July, festivities, Party Favorz is back with some brand-spanking new FunkyDiscoHouseShit for your beach and pool parties.

Served with a heaping dose of NuDisco and contemporary House Music, Beach House 2018 is bound to have you pull out your rollerskates so you can get your boogie on! In what are increasingly troubled times, this is the best way to cast your worries aside and just have a good time.

It’s been sweltering here in the ATL with daily downpours that lead to muggier than normal evenings. What can I say other than it keeps getting hotter and hotter each year. I can’t help but recall the 80’s movie Body Heat starring William Hurt and Kathleen Turner. The entire setting of this erotic thriller is reminiscent of the type of weather we’ve continued to experience year after year.

I hope everyone has an enjoyable holiday (even though it falls in the middle of the week) because I have the distinct feeling this country is heading towards a civil war very soon, and it’s not going to be pretty but I digress.

Until the next time…ENJOY!

Bionic Boogie | Nu Disco & Smooth House Music to Grease Your Gears for Summer!

Bionic Boogie

Bionic BoogieI’ve been working on Bionic Boogie for the better part of two weeks. It’s a combination of Nu Disco, House Music, Gospel House, Soulful House, Funk, and re-worked Disco Classics that will help ease you into Summer!

The original set was coming in over 2 hours+ and something didn’t quite sit right with me after repeated listens. I went back to surgically remove some tunes but that still wasn’t working. Finally, I cut 1/3 of the fat, trimming it down to a more manageable 80 minutes.

Because of the excise, expect the set to take a noticeable turn after the third song. The switch up was my intention to keep folks engaged, if not surprised. Let’s just say that the song “Freedom” by Disco Incorporated is NOT what you’d expect it to be. In fact, there was a recent viral tweet about a certain megaband whose music was not danceable. In all honesty, their music was never intended for dance floors but Deep Dish got there first and you sure as shit can dance to this updated re-work; that’s all I’m sayin.

With the trims I made to this set, I may have enough to go back and put together another Trash Disco set for all of the hardcore disco-fanatics (like myself) at a later date. I’m not making any promises but it’s definitely on my radar.

In other news, getting back into Spotify does not look promising. I’ve identified the issue but my podcast host Podbean prefers to play dumb and then refers me to Spotify who then refers me back to Podbean in a vicious circle of stupidity that I really don’t have time for. I’d be shocked if this ever gets resolved and I have no plans on expending all of my energy trying to fix the issue. If it happens, I’ll let you know but I wouldn’t hold my breath.

That’s all I got for this weekend. As new tracks continue to roll in, expect a new Dance Club set in the coming weeks. Until then…ENJOY!

Disco Cherry | Nu Disco and Funky House Favorites!

Disco Cherry

Disco CherryIt’s Friday, which means it’s DISCO time! From Nu Disco and Funk to Soulful, Rap, and Space Disco, Disco Cherry has everything you need to get your boogie on.

I need to make a correction to previous statements over the years (and recently) about “My Imagination” by Ceevox. This is in fact, a remake of the Soul classic “Imagination” by Gladys Knight & the Pips from the early 70’s. I’m bringing that up because I mistakingly stated that the recent rework by Dirty Disco and Debby Holiday was a remake of the Ceevox classic when in fact it is not. It wasn’t until I was serviced the full set of remixes and heard the original Dirty Disco “classic disco” remix that it dawned on me what the song was. Kudos to Ceevox for totally reworking the track from its original origins and to Debby Holiday for updating the song in its original form as well as the Ceevox version. That’s a lot of explaining but it bugs me when I miss something as vital as this. I’m a HUGE early 70’s soul fan and why I never put the two together until now is beyond me.

Many of these tracks will sound familiar to you as the artists have lifted beats and sample from works of previous generations but there are several straight up full reworks of the originals. Aside from “Imagination” Barry Harris updates the Cerrone classic “Supernature” in its full 11:30 glory while adding his own special brand to the song. While working on a new Diva Series I stumbled on the updated classic “Heart Of Glass” by Blondie from a few years ago. I have to say, this is hands down the best rework of this song EVER! Unfortunately, it wouldn’t work on the forthcoming (cat out of the bag) Debbie Harry + Blondie Diva Hall of Fame set I’m putting together but is perfect here.

I also close the set out with a House update of the classic rock song “Gimme Shelter” by the Rolling Stones. This is one of my all-time favorite songs by one of my all-time favorite bands featuring the blistering backing vocals by Merry Clayton. It was so well done that to leave it off would be a criminal offense if not a felony.

As promised, I’ve got a slew of new Diva Series for you folks over the upcoming weeks. There are so many that I’ll start dropping them on Sunday and release one every other day after that.

It looks like a fantastic spring weekend for us and I hope Disco Cherry puts some light in your life as well. Until the next time…ENJOY!

Sweat on the Floor pt. 1 | Hard-hitting Funky House Music to Kick Off the New Year!

Sweat On The Floor

Sweat On The FloorWhat happens when you accidentally combine all of your funky house music tracks with the underground house music tracks? Obviously, you get Sweat on the Floor!

While sorting out the tracks for upcoming sets, I mixed in these two genres and proceeded to start a new Underground House (Deep Edition) set that sounded funkier than usual. Once I realized what I had done, I just let it flow and presto, this set was born.

Doing this allowed me to create an entirely new feel that leans heavily on the funky with some deep and dark tunes with a groovy feel. It also provided me the opportunity to heavily experiment with mashups that worked flawlessly. Either I got lucky or this could be an entirely new direction for this series.

Then again, I really want to slow the beats down to 115-118 BPM for the next funky house and whip up a chill set for the next Deep Edition; so I’ll play it by ear.

Until next week…ENJOY!

Disco Dust | Funky House Music That Cools You Down & Heats You Up!

Disco Dust

Disco DustAt this rate, finding a job that I’ll not only excel at but pays beyond a living wage is more difficult than I thought. I’ve got my sights on a fast-growing company in the Atlanta region and have been hitting them up on a regular basis. Kinda like a kid pestering their parents for that hard to find toy. Ultimately they give in but in this case, we’ll see. I have a virtual career fair coming up on Wednesday for people with disabilities and the company list looks promising.

I’ve also set up my LinkedIn page if anyone wants to friend me. Due to privacy concerns, I’m not a huge social media fan and rarely if ever divulge information about myself in public; so this is a big deal to me. If you want to hit me up and follow me, you can do that at www.linkedin.com/in/keith-alan-whitworth. It’s a work in progress as I refine my resume because I don’t have the money to pay someone to do it for me but I’m getting there.

As you can see, I’m on it but it’s going to take a little more time than I anticipated.

All of this bodes well for you folks as it gives me more free time to put out awesome podcasts through at least the end of the year. I’ve renewed my DJ subscription service for 3 months and am still getting promos from labels so there’s plenty coming your way through the end of December.

In the meantime, we’re going to get down with some brand-spanking new sizzling HOT FunkyDiscoHouseShit! From classic re-works to original future classics, this set has it all.

I’ve also just finished remastering a whole new BackSpin series that are companion pieces to the 90’s Eurodance and Cheese Mix I put out in 2014. More on that later next week.

In the meantime, get down to the brand new sounds of D-I-S-C-O. Enjoy!!!

That means there won’t be anything for next week as I’ve blown my wad until I get in the mood (to be creative) again.

Until the next time…ENJOY!

Pool Party 2017 | Funky House Music for Your Summer Parties!

Pool Party 2017

Pool Party 2017It’s officially time to kick this shit into gear! Party Favorz is dropping the Pool Party 2017, which is some serious FunkyDiscoHouseShit on the masses.

Formerly known as Beach House, Pool Party continues the trend in the summer’s biggest funky house music currently trending.

As the music becomes more intricate and diverse in its offerings, I developed an entirely new (to me anyway) of looking at the tunes and dropping them into the mix for a more cohesive flow. You’ll likely won’t notice the difference but for me, it’s a much easier/better way of making the magic happen. I couldn’t be more stoked at the end result.

At the moment, I appear to be ahead of the game so I would probably watch this space very closely as you may get another BIG surprise tomorrow morning.

Until then…Happy Friday and as always…ENJOY!

Deep & Funky 2007 pt. 2 | Expanded and Remastered | Top Dance Hits of the Year

Deep Funky 2007 pt. 2

Deep Funky 2007 pt. 2As promised, I’m sending part 2 of the Deep & Funky 2007 Year-end Edition. This set is packed with several of my personal favorites including Booty Luv’s “Boogie 2nite”, Cahill’s “Trippin On You” Degrees of Motion’s updated “Do You Want It Right Now” Tony Moran & Martha Wash’s “Keep Your Body Working” Nowak’s Boogie Oogie Oogie inspired “Stand Up” Mika’s “Love Today” Roisin Murphy’s “Let Me Know” and Fish Go Deep’s “The Cure and the Cause”.

Actually, I just love all the songs. This was an unplanned trip back to when Party Favorz all began. A diversionary if you will, but an important part of our history. I promise to get summer 2017 officially kicked-off tomorrow with Pool Party followed by the next EDM/Dance set and Summer Edition for the circuit boys the following week.

I’ve also got stealth and brand new inductions into the Diva Hall of Fame that will roll us into August, just in time for Madonna’s annual birthday mix.

Until then…ENJOY!

Deep & Funky 2007 pt. 1 | Expanded and Remastered | Top Dance Hits of the Year

Deep Funky

Deep FunkyIn my last post, I asked if anyone had some older mixes that I long ago lost due to a hard drive crash. I want to give a HUGE shoutout to Dean and Marshall for making it happen. The BPM Edition 2009 v5, which was originally 4 sets has been combined into two and is now available for the first time in years. Five sets of the BPM Edition 2009 v1 and the 2 set Funky Edition 2008 v1 and v2 have now been combined into one are also available.

I had a problem with the Year-end Edition 2007: Deep & Funky because in both cases they had split the tracks up and their tracklisting wasn’t matching up with what was originally posted.

Along with 1999, 2007 is one of my all-time favorite years of house music. Folks like Freemasons, Moto Blanco, Soulseekers, 7th Heaven, Bassmonkeys, Wideboys and DJ Meme were all on the cusp of becoming DJ and production superstars.

So, I went back and pulled ALL of the original tracks and re-worked the entire 3 volume set and combined it into two. I dropped a couple of songs for coherence, changed a couple of the original versions and added few more that were never included (but should have been). Basically, this is the same set, only better.

It’s been remastered according to iTunes standards and frankly is mind-numbingly fantastic! So much so, I thought it would be a shame to not promote it front and center on the site. Hell, I even re-created the original artwork to go along with it, with some minor changes.

I’ve got part two going up tomorrow before officially kicking summer 2017 off with the long overdue Pool Party (which is complete and kicks some serious funky ass).

So let’s go back 10 years from when Party Favorz officially launched on the web with the Deep & Funky Year-end edition and party like it’s 2007. ENJOY!

Disco Nights | Funky Disco House Summer Music Warm-up

Disco Nights

Disco NightsIn an effort to kickstart summer and the upcoming Memorial Day holiday, I can’t think of anything better than a good ole fashion funky-disco-house throwdown.

From House music to Disco and everything in between, we got it all right here for your pool party pleasure. Heck, I even threw in some stompin’ Gospel house for good measure.

Rick and I got moved into our new apartment last week. We hate moving, which is why we tend to stay in one place for long periods of time. The new place is awesome but still under construction. I like shiny new things but we ended up in front of the pool, which depending on how you look at it may or may not be a good thing. They’re installing a giant screen for movie nights right outside our patio so we’ll see how that’s gonna work out. Sadly, the pool won’t be finished until the end of June.

I’ve got a surprise Deep Edition ready to go for next week before we get to the 2017 Catch-up. Even with all the commotion going on, I’ve been able to keep up. Of course, that’s followed by Pride and since this is our last year, it’s gonna be BIG! When the month is over, June will be the hottest month on record.

That’s all I got for today. I hope everyone has a fantastic weekend. Stay hydrated and as always…ENJOY!

Living in the City | Fresh Funky Beats for Your Night Time Excursions

Living in the City

Living in the CityHAPPY FRIDAY! As promised, I’m delivering quite possibly one of my favorite funkydiscohouseshit sets in over a year. Not since last year’s ‘We Love to Boogie and ‘Boogie Nights has the music been so diverse, funky and frankly fabulous!

Living in the City‘ delivers fresh new beats from Full Intention, Fatboy Slim, Jamiroquai, and Blondie! It also re-delivers fresh new takes on the Black Box (with Miss Martha Wash) classic ‘Strike It Up’, Claptone’s housed-up version of the 80’s classic Din Da Da, which recently appeared in its full glory on ‘Hit That Perfect Beat‘ and was prominently sampled on the Barry Harris remix of Rihanna’s recent number one “Love on the Brain‘ and a re-work of the Chic disco classic ‘Dance Dance Dance’ by Simioli vs. Jonk.

To round out all of this freshness, we’ve got a ton of new funky house beats that are certain to please even the most discerning palettes among you.

Couple this with yesterday’s ‘White Party Edition 2017 (a.k.a. Spring Edition 2017) you’ve got one hell of a Winter Music Conference which is winding down and White Party, which is winding up. Florida is the state to be in this weekend.

Next week, I plan on dropping the WMC After Party for all of my EDM/DANCE fans before launching into much delayed fresh off the grill DIVA  series of which I have a multitude scheduled for delivery. As you can see, I’ve got a full plate as I continue to deliver these tantalizing full course meals.

That’s all I got for today. If you’re in Florida, HAVE FUN. If not, keep warm with these sizzling sets.

Until the next time…ENJOY!

Nightlife 1

Nightlife 1Welcome to the 2017 Funky House inaugural edition. Eh, just kidding.

I was going to put this out tomorrow morning but I figured a lot of you may need the diversion sooner rather than later.

If you can believe it, I’m currently at a loss for words. I’d like to smoke a joint but I haven’t done that in 10 years and don’t have any laying around.

I guess I’ll just slam a few beers; pop an Ambien and try to sleep it off.

Trash Disco | Good Times

Trash Disco

Trash DiscoWelcome to the final installment of the Trash Disco series. ‘Good Times’ had been put on hold due to the remaining songs not being cohesive enough to stitch together.

With some recent releases I picked up at JunoDownload, I was able to put the last nail in the genre-defying category that is DISCO. By no means is this even close to complete but the eight sets that make up this series are a damn good start to sink your teeth into and make for one helluva throwback party.

I pulled in the remaining Chic classics, ensuring that Nile Rodgers and company were well represented throughout. This last set also leans heavily on its sister decade the 80’s. The catchy and sophisticated ‘Saturday Love’ by Cherrelle, Dr. Packer’s updated Gwen Guthrie classic ‘Ain’t Nothing Going On but the Rent’ and the down and dirty funk of Lakeside’s epic ‘Fantastic Voyage’ stitch the seams of this bulging set of disco gems from the 70’s.

In an effort to control bots and certain elements of society from draining my server and bandwidth, I’ve implemented a registration and login requirement for Party Favorz. I’m good at digging into the numbers and have zoned in on certain individuals and countries that are like vampires. If this doesn’t slow them down, I’ll roll out full blocks by next month.

I’ve also updated the site icon and logo that leaves behind the grunge rendering that was so three years ago, in favor of a cleaner and modernized look. I know it’s hard to get too excited about, but I spent several days designing and putting this together. Let me know what you think.

Finally, I’ve set up ALL of the categories (DANCE, Circuit, Funky House, etc.) as their own separate entity in iTunes. For instance, if you only come here for Classic House and Divas you can subscribe to just those and they’ll download into their own individual folder. If you love everything but want to keep it all separate so you can easily visit it based on your mood; subscribing to each category individually will create an individual folder for each.

Then again, some folks like the element of surprise, in which case subscribing to the main feed is fine. You can find and subscribe to all the categories in iTunes at Podcasts By Party Favorz. How cool is that? [brushes off dust from shoulder, hmmph.]

As we edge into the Thanksgiving holiday, I want everyone to be thankful for at least one thing and putting Party Favorz at the top of that list would be an excellent suggestion [grin].

I’ll be back soon with a Black Friday 2 for 1 special. Until then …ENJOY!

Open All Night | Kickin’ Back with Some Soulful Funky Beats

Open All Night

Open All NightOMFG, Party Favorz is back and on a mission!

On a mission to bring you the finest Dance, Circuit and Funky House that you never knew you wanted until you heard it. We’ve got a lot in store between now and the end of the year, so pay very close attention to this space.

Kicking off our return from the abyss is Open All Night, which is a culmination of the finest soulful, funky and disco house beats circulating in clubland at the moment.

The set starts off with a clip from the Netflix series ‘Narcos’. It quickly launches into a Jimmy ‘Bo’ Horne Spanking groove of ‘Bring The Funk’ by Fabio Montana & Freiboitar that will have you shaking your ass right out of the gate. Georgie Porgie delivers the follow-up with a sweet if not uncharacteristically groovy sax house number with the sorely M.I.A. Suzanne Palmer delivering a sweltering scat throughout on ‘Blow Your Sax’.

The set transitions into some soulful disco house before launching back into its disco roots with the Sylvester inspired ‘Make and Feel’. From there it alternates between disco, house, and funk with James Brown closing things out in Babert’s ‘Sex Machine’. All the elements are in place for your late night grooving pleasure.

Tomorrow, I’ll be diving into the deep end of the pool to cap off your weekend. Until then, ENJOY!

Funky House Sessions | Fall 2016

The Funky House Sessions

The Funky House SessionsIt’s time to get down to some purifying house, dirty disco and phatt funk with the fall edition of the Funky House Sessions, also better known as funkydiscohouseshit.

I kick things off with a couple of straight-up house tunes, both remakes. The first should be very familiar to every Pet Shops Boys fan as Sterling Void takes on It’s All Aright and delivers a straight rendition of the original with Eric Kupper at the boards providing a smooth remix. This version is so faithful to the original, it almost makes me wish the PSB vocals were used since I keep thinking of the original every time I hear this. That’s not to take away from this rendition but it is a testament to how deeply ingrained Neil Tennant’s vocals are to the original classic.

This is followed by Chocolate Dice’s I’m An Addict, which uses select portions of Toto’s 1979 hit Georgie Porgie. This is actually a smart take of the original even if we don’t get the fabulous Cheryl Lynn performing vocal chores on the chorus. I had to go back and listen to the original and realized just how much I really enjoy this song.

Lee Walker & DJ Deeon’s massive hit Freak Like Me get’s an 80’s disco remake proving how versatile this song is. It just works.

We quickly move into some 70’s style funk with Bad Boy Bill & J Paul Getto on Do Your Thing before launching into DJ Meme’s self-described remix of “epic proportions” of Donna Summer’s MacArthur Park. This put’s the recent Rosabel version to shame as Meme really drives this one home proving his long-lasting devotion to all things disco.

I followed this with a last minute entry by Richard Burton’s remake of another 70’s classic Bad Luck. DJ Spen’s dirty garage house version is so good that there was no way I could leave this song out for a future set.

You’ll notice a certain back in forth within the house, disco, and funk genres before all of a sudden I make an abrupt switch-up to some Soulful house. Dawn Tallman’s latest Teardrops (a remake of the late 90’s classic by Lovestation) is nothing short of brilliant. Once again Eric Kupper handles the remix duties but there is also an excellent version by Stonebridge and Sted-E & Hybrib Heights. I’m hoping for a big circuit-house version at some point because Cole Plante has already delivered his take on this classic, which is making an appearance on the 2016 Fall Edition dropping tomorrow. ‘

Another personal favorite is Alicia Keys’ In Common, which has had some stellar house remixes including the Groove Junkies. Wait until tomorrow when you hear what Barry Harris did with the song because it’s going to blow you away!

From there, things begin to heat up again for more funk and disco before closing things out with a skillful re-work of Freeez’ 80’s Freestyle classic I.O.U.

I’ve been hard at work wrapping up all the sets so as to release EVERYTHING this week. Tomorrow, I’ve got the Fall Edition for the circuit boys and the day after I’ll be dropping the next commercial EDM set.

Trash Disco | Shake Your Groove Thing

Trash Disco vol. 8

Trash Disco vol. 8Shake Your Groove Thing will be the last for awhile in the Trash Disco Series. There are other things I’d like to put out in the BackSpin category so I’ll be setting these on the back-burner for the moment.

But hey, you’ve got a total of seven, yes seven in this group should you want to throw a disco party.

The beats or (BPM) in this final set start around 128 and slowly build up to 134, so it is a bit faster than the last two. If you’re wondering why Amii Stewart’s classic Knock on Wood doesn’t make an appearance despite being on the cover art, is because I just could make it work. I’ll set it aside for a future set to see what I can do.

In the meantime, get ready for some more rump-shaking fun and shake your groove thing!

I’ll be back next week with Madonna’s birthday celebration mix. Until then …ENJOY!

Trash Disco | Groove Line

Trash Disco vol. 6

Trash Disco vol. 6Picking up where we left off yesterday, Trash Disco [Groove Line] continues the same theme with a few brand new Dr. Packer remixes thrown in.

At this point, I’ve pretty much convinced myself that Odyssey’s Native New Yorker is quite possibly my all-time favorite disco anthem. At the time, I hadn’t saved enough money from mowing lawns to buy my own record player yet and had to rely on my sister’s which for some inextricable reason was located on a top shelf in her bedroom closet, though connected.

When she wasn’t there, I’d have to grab the ladder from the garage and set it up so I could listen to this 45, which I would play over and over, while imagining myself on roller-skates dancing with my favorite unknown boyfriend under the disco lights. I was a weird kid for certain but often fantasized about unrealistic things of where I saw my future life. To this day, the song still conjures up those same feelings.

Each tune in this set is massive and reached the upper-echelons of the Billboard disco chart. So sit back and relax or put on your spandex and platforms and get ready to boogie!

Music plays, everyone’s dancin’ closer and closer

Makin’ friends and findin’ lovers
There you are lost in the shadows, searchin’ for someone [Searchin’ for someone]
To set you free from New York City

And, whoa, where did all those yesterdays go
When you still believed love could really be like a Broadway show
You are the star, win the applause

Oh, oh, oh [Oh, oh, oh]
You’re a native New Yorker
No one opens the door
For a native New Yorker

I’ll be back tomorrow with the final set. Until then …ENJOY!

Pool Party 2K16 | Cool Summer Funky House Music

Pool Party 2K16

Pool Party 2K16Party Favorz is back with some cool summer funky house music for mingling around the pool or lounging at the beach. The 2016 Pool Party is simply a renaming of the annual Beach House Edition but still has the bright disco fun you normally expect from the series.

Things kick-off with a sunny bootleg remix of the 80’s Tears for Fears classic Everybody Wants to Rule the World, which should immediately put a smile on your face. If it doesn’t, then there is something seriously wrong with your mindset.

From there, Soul singer Leroy Burgess re-works one of his classics tunes Barely Breaking Even with Sweden’s OPOLOPO delivering a satisfying 80’s R&B dance remix that keeps up that fuzzy feelgood feeling. If you haven’t picked up on it yet, there are a lot of classics re-worked for this set.

CeCe Peniston’s early 90’s house smash Finally get’s the treatment along with Nightcrawlers Push the Feeling On and a personal favorite from 1989, Good Life by Inner City (a song I hold near and dear to my heart).

Bob Marley has been popping up everywhere lately and this time it’s a dance floor remix of Could Be Loved. I’m thinking his music has either entered into the public domain or his family has opened up his catalog for sampling and outright remakes. As a Marley fan, I couldn’t be happier.

We delve into a bit of deeper house music for a bit with Miss Barbra Tucker finally declaring “I don’t know what you came here to do.” Two snaps for the queen of house because she just did it.

Nora En Pure delivers a classic beach house anthem that will soothe your mind, body, and soul and New Order has teamed with Claptone for a sweet house version of People on the High Line.

We get back into the classic re-works with Cyrstal Waters’ Gypsy Woman (She’s Homeless) another song near and dear to my heart followed by an unexpected re-work of the late 70’s rock anthem Black Betty that works so well as a house-floor shaker, it makes you wonder why no one had the balls to pull this off ages ago.

Finally, I close things out with a near faithful re-work of the late 70’s disco classic Boogie Oogie Oogie by Taste of Honey, which may leave you wanting more. Never fear, I’m working on some new Trash Disco sets for next week.

With yesterday’s tragedy in France, I’ve decided to stay off of my soapbox since this insanity is becoming an all too common occurrence. Instead, I’ve decided to change my icon to show support and unity with the French people in their time of grief.

Anything I have to say about the state of the human race and politics will be reserved for later in the fall once the US elections begin heating up. For now, I’m pretty certain folks know what I think about the willful ignorance and outright stupidity of the far-right’s leadership and nominee for president.

That’s all I got for now. I hope everyone has a fantastic weekend and as always …ENJOY!

Trash Disco | Get Down

Trash Disco v4

Trash Disco v4True to my anal-self, I got up early this morning to post the latest Trash Disco to make sure everyone’s Memorial Day weekend is complete. Then, I started digging around for a replacement mix of Dazz as the version I had was appreciable but the guy who did it was pretty much out of his element.

Then, I stumbled upon Digital Visions who is one of a multitude of devotees to all things re-edits, especially in the Disco realm. How I missed him previously is beyond me because while several of his like-minded rivals range from really bad to fairly decent; he just blows them out of the water LOL. I’ll be reaching out to him shortly to work out some sort of deal for use of his work but we’ll keep that under wraps. DO check out his SoundCloud page if you’re a fan.

Here’s a list of the songs that may not immediately stand out to you until you listen to them:

  • I hope everyone has a fantastic Memorial Day weekend and if you live somewhere else, find a party; I’m pretty sure there’s one going on near you.

Until the next time …ENJOY!

At this point, I can safely say that Party Favorz has all of the bases covered for your holiday weekend needs. Whether it’s funky house, EDM, circuit or disco; I’ve been rolling them out on a conveyor belt in a chocolate factory.

Trash Disco | Boogie Wonderland

Trash Disco v3

Trash Disco v3The hardest part involved in making these sets is tracking down the songs; especially songs whose title is flip-opposite of what you would expect. As a result, once you narrow down the genres where you know they’re likely to show up at, you listen …and listen …and listen until you strike gold and then pick up where you left off.

In fact, that process takes hours to pour through all the potential songs that ultimately make up the Trash Disco series. Fortunately, I am a die-hard disco fanatic who is very studied in the genre and can sniff out the beat in a new recording 30 years after it was originally released, in most cases. Some sampled tunes these days are lifted from really rare releases making it damn near impossible to identify unless I stumble across the original and have an “a-ha” moment (which has happened).

With the exception of the originally titled re-works in the tracklist, here’s what else is buried between the grooves should your inquiring mind want to know:

  • D-I-S-C-O, Funk, and Soul …it’s all represented and I got one more of these heading your way tomorrow just in time to start your Memorial Day weekend.

Until then …ENJOY!

Destination Boogie | More FunkyDiscoHouseShit

Destination Boogie

Destination BoogieSchool is out and summer is almost here. I figured it was time to check my white-ass at the door and step into another world to put some funk back in my step. Culminating some of the finest Funk, Soul, R&B, and Disco all under the House music umbrella,…blah, blah, blah.

Site collapsed yesterday; the original post is lost and I’m not re-entering it again; Siteground (my host) sucks my balls; PayPal dropped out as a result; and everything is moving at a snail’s pace despite having done NOTHING to my site; zero, zip…NADA. I posted this new set and several hours later everything is offline. When it came back online; everything was jacked up.

I’m working on getting PayPal operational and have submitted my umpteenth request to get my site running at top speed again. I could pay a fraction of the cost to host this site on GoDaddy and not have anywhere near the issues (meaning no calls into support) that I have with Siteground. Every day I wake up and it’s something new with these folks.

Billy, if you’re reading this; check your email. I sent you something last night that should take care of you for now. Everyone else, don’t bother reaching out. I’m going to get this shit fixed and will be incommunicado the rest of the day. Enjoy.

Trash Disco pt. 2 | Disco Hits Remixed & Re-imagined

Trash Disco pt. 2

Trash Disco pt. 2After dicking-around with my logo all morning, I’m finally getting around to posting the second installment of Trash Disco

Personally, I’m shocked at the overwhelmingly positive response the first set received. I really wasn’t expecting that kind of reaction. I am pleased to tell you, this set was actually supposed to be part 1 but I swapped it at the last moment because I thought this was the stronger of the two sets and was going to use it to kick-off the subscription service. In fact, this set is so groove-a-licious, it can lift the laziest of you off the sofa to shake your ass.

Since I don’t have everything in place yet, this one is on the house (pun intended), so get your roller-skates on because it’s time to get down and B-O-O-G-I-E.

I finally have a weekend without any obligations and I plan on using this time to get everything up and running. The goal is to make the service fully automated without subscribers waiting up to 24 hours for me to email them back with a code. Everything needs to be self-sufficient so that my time is only spent between work (the kind that pays the bills) and doing what I do best, which is serving up sizzling hot platters of house music.

I may take some time off, so it might be at least two weeks before posting resumes. I know everyone is eager for me to get back to my normal pace of releases, so please give me some time to get everything tidy around here and then I’m on it.

While I’m at it, I want to give a HUGE shout-out to Keith M. and Glenn A. (aka DiscoBall) for their generous donations. Sorry, Glenn had previously forgotten to mention you but you know I heart you.

Until the next time …ENJOY!

Trash Disco pt. 1 | Disco Hits Remixed & Re-imagined

Trash Disco

Trash DiscoHappy Saturday everybody! Well, well, well…I bet nobody saw this one coming. I’ve had a massive disco hard-on for some time now that’s left me with shiny disco blue balls and I just needed to get some relief.

Over the years, I’ve snuck in these little disco re-make gems into my house sets and decided it was time to start compiling them and put them all together. Because many are re-named other than what they actually are (likely due to copyright agreements), it’s hard tracking these all down in my massive collection of dance music. I went back and picked up a few more and laid down the first of two sets in this new series. If you’re looking to own any of these, most can be found by the track name listed here at Junodownload.com.

I wasn’t sure what category to file this under so I went with BackSpin. I can see this expanding into 80s music as well, so the list of possibilities with this new series is endless. I hope ya’ll enjoy this as much as I did putting it together because if you don’t, I still have another one on tap for next week.  We’ll get back to normal operations soon enough but trust me when I say, you ain’t missing much at the moment.

I want to thank Benjamin W. for his thoughtful donation he just sent my way. That’s going to go a long way towards covering my costs for this month.

Speaking of which, I’ve got the new system down to two options that I will be playing around with tomorrow before I finalize the new payment plan for the site. Those of you who have been faithful in a variety of ways the past year and a half can expect to be getting an email invitation from partyfavorz.com in the coming week; so be on the lookout for that.

In the interim, put your roller skates and bell bottoms on and get ready to B-O-O-G-I-E! If this is all new to you, give it a spin and you may just recognize a song that was the basis for something current you’ve been digging and then think to yourself …WOA! they just up and stole that shit from the past.

Have a fantastic weekend and as always …ENJOY!

We Love To Boogie! | A New Generation of Funky House Beats

We Love To Boogie 1

We Love To Boogie 1As promised, I’m back with the second installment of my funkyhousediscoshit.  Just like Boogie Nights, this set features a wide assortment of genres but this time they range from Deep House and Disco to Urban House, Tech House and good ole fashion Soulful House.

We Love to Boogie starts off really cool and then begins to slowly heat up.  About two-thirds of the way in, all bets are off and I pretty much burn down the house.  Shortly after, I drop the temperature a few notches and keep up the pace from there.

I closed the set with an unexpected gem by the Beatles.  I can honestly say that Taxman is one of my least favorite songs from the Fab Four’s vast catalog and an unlikely candidate to get a 21st century EDM remix.  LA’s Mot & Krid deliver a surprisingly fantastic production that would fit perfectly in an Austin Powers soundtrack (go-go boots, miniskirts and all).  While not particularly the typical “house” song I would include in my funky sets, it’s just too much damn fun to leave on the cutting room floor.

Some of you have sent emails about the site being down or not being able to download the podcasts.  Everything appears to be in working order at the moment.  As for the site issues, I’ve noticed many problems with Bluehost ever since I switched to them last year and am looking forward to going back to Siteground by the summer.

The actual podcasts have been hosted over at House-Mixes, a fairly decent site that’s a one-man operation, much like Party Favorz.  Considering the magnitude and complexity of putting together a site like that by a single individual, I have to say that Paul really does a great job.  Nevertheless, the frequent outages and lack of control over what I post is beginning to become a bit of a headache.

With the recent passage of TPP (Trans-Pacific Partnership) I am predicting some major changes in the podcasting industry within a year or less, none of which looks promising much less fair.  In the next few weeks, I’ll be looking at my options for hosting all the music myself, without having to rely on a third-party who will no doubt be heavily scrutinized (which they already are) by the music industry.  It’s a shame, but with the explosion of streaming and the way we access our music/entertainment, the long-standing tradition of podcasting is likely going to get caught-up in the crossfire.

Keep in mind, Party Favorz has always maintained a low profile and has a limited scope and while I don’t mind picking up new followers (this past week about 20 more signed up), I’m not looking to expand into some big money-making venture nor profit off of other folks intellectual property.  I do this for the love of all things house music and enjoy sharing that love with folks (like yourselves) who appreciate my passion.

I haven’t determined the time and costs to get everything switched over but I’m at the point where I’m ready to dive in and take more control.  As a result, expect some delays in posting until I can get everything moved over.  How long that will take is unclear, so please be patient.

In the interim, you’ve got your weekend all wrapped-up into two solid party sets.

Until the next time …ENJOY!

Boogie Nights | A New Generation of Funky House Beats

Boogie Nights 1

Boogie Nights 1Party Favorz is kicking 2016 off with a couple of fresh sets featuring some of the HOTTEST FunkyDiscoHouseShit circulating the scene at the moment. This first set showcases a wide variety of sub-genres in house music that seamlessly blend one style to the next while keeping your toes tapping and ass shaking. Each hand-picked track is AAA rated and contains absolutely 0% filler.

I want to give a HUGE shout out to the gracious Sanny X, who not only recently graced us with the awesome tribute set to one of my all-time favorite artists (David Bowie) but has just dropped a spectacular re-work of the disco classic Dance Little Lady Dance by Tina Charles.  As an ardent lover of all things disco, I’ve never given a whole lot of consideration to this song as anything more than a major label (Columbia/Sony) trying to capitalize on a trend. However, Sanny X strips all of the instrumentation from the original and lays down a really deep Nile Rogers inspired groove behind the track, which truly makes the original shine while showcasing Tina’s amazing vocals and presenting the song in a whole new light.

I’ll let the rest of the set speak for itself; so just sit back, press play, then Rinse & Repeat.

I’ll be back tomorrow with part 2.  Until then …ENJOY!

House Sessions Nov. 2k15 pt. 2 | Bigger, Better, Deeper House Hits

November 2015 House Sessions PT. 2 1

November 2015 House Sessions PT. 2 1Moving along with pt. 2 of the November House Sessions, we keep rolling in the deep with a bevy of familiar pop tunes rolled up in dark chocolate.  Then, I couple these with up and coming tunes that are about to hit your favorite bar, club or radio station soon.

I have finally found a balance between the discontinued Mixtape series that I had been churning out and the ongoing Funky House series I’ve been making since the beginning of Party Favorz.  Obviously, house music has evolved but it’s not always about the funk or boogie.  Sometimes, it’s about the cool steady beat that drops from 128 BPM down to 115 BPM that keeps your head bopping and hips moving.  By incorporating elements of both, I am better able to satisfy my own personal lust for all things house, while keeping the flow steady and maintaining interest throughout (at least I’d like to think so).

I’m dropping a bomb surprise later next week (likely on Thursday which is Thanksgiving for those of you not in the U.S.) and a day off for me.  If I haven’t mentioned it, Rick and I have been on really good terms lately.  He’s been over several times to kind of help with hanging up stuff and getting my space turned into the quasi-cool hipster pad I had envisioned when I moved into this much smaller unit.  We have plans to go out to one of our favorite Bar & Grills in midtown on Thursday.  It’s the first restaurant we went to when we moved to Atlanta back in 2001 and has been one of our consistent favorites ever since.  It’s kind of an older gay crowd with friendly wait staff, great comfort food and just an overall nice atmosphere to be in with friends.  I’m not saying or expecting anything beyond that, but it’s good to have him in my life.

That’s all I got for today.  I’ll be back later next week with a set I wasn’t expecting to make but it just kind of fell together nicely.  So, why not share it?

Until then …ENJOY!
