90s House Classics v10

Let There Be House | 90’s House Classics pt. 10

Let There Be House marks the end of the 90’s House Classics series for the moment. I felt like I had neglected this important category of Party Favorz for too long making imperative it be refreshed. Between all of these sets and the Millennial House Classics and several of the Legacy series, I think I’ve made…

90s House Classics v9

Surrender Yourself | 90’s House Classics pt. 9

And the 90’s House Classics just keep on rolllin’! Surrender Yourself is chalk-full of classic house music favorites but also has what I like to call the early incarnations of that circuit sound. The Junior Vasquez remix of Body To Body (Keep In Touch) by Shades of Love and Soul Solutions remix of Changes by…

George Michael Tribute

George Michael Tribute pt. 2 | Freedom ’16

I had originally planned to update George’s original induction into the Diva Hall of Fame from 2010 this next year. Under the circumstances, I changed those plans and undertook the project the day after Christmas. I couldn’t allow the original mix be the final word. I spent an entire day remastering each song one by…

The Diva Series George Michael

George Michael | Tribute 1963 – 2016

It is with a heavy heart and deep sorrow that I am re-posting George Michael’s original induction into the Diva Hall of Fame and am now filing it under Tribute. He is truly one of the greatest artists of my lifetime and his album Listen Without Prejudice Vol. 1 is one of my top 10 all-time…

The Diva Series Patti LaBelle

Patti LaBelle | The Diva Series

Miss Patti LaBelle was the moving force behind the 70’s Soul group LaBelle and their signature song Lady Marmalade made them international superstars. Patti’s powerful vocals made her a standout in the group (though they subsequently reformed in the 90’s) as she eventually went solo with a sustained and successful career that has lasted decades.…

The Diva Series starring Jody Watley

Jody Watley | The Diva Series | 90s Club Hits

From Fly Girl to backup dancer for Janet …oh wait!  I’m getting my DIVAS mixed-up.  Let’s try this again … From Soul Train dancer to member of the 70s and 80s disco/R&B group Shalamar, to fashion icon and actress to dance floor D-I-V-A, Jody Watley truly is the shit! After leaving Shalamar in the early…

The Diva Series Barbara Tucker

Barbara Tucker | The Diva Series |Redux

In 2008, after having successfully created multiple feature sets for friends that included Everything But The Girl, Madonna, Kristine W, Christina Aguilera and even Sara McLachlan, I began to realize folks were really digging them and then came up with the idea for the Diva Series.  I was steeped in house music at the time…

Back Spin v5 2401

Backspin v5 | The Cheese Mix

As promised, I’m serving up a whole plate full of cheese this week. While last week’s Eurodance set focused primarily on a single genre in dance, The Cheese Mix covers an entire spectrum from the late 80s to 2001. Unless you were living in a cave during this period, you’ll likely instantly recognize all the…

Back Spin v4 240

90’s Euro-dance | Backspin v4

It’s time to go back, way back …back in time.  Okay, not all that far back but it feels like an eternity.  Yes, folks, I’m talking about the 90’s! The 1990’s were kind of a lost era, at least for me.  The whole alternative music scene exploded as did grunge.  House music had made significant inroads…

Frankie Knuckles Legend Silver 240

Frankie Knuckles “Legend Silver”

After discovering house music in the late 80s, it became an integral part of my life. Along with Shep, Lil Louis, MAW, Todd Terry, David Morales, Junior Vasquez there was Frankie Knuckles, the godfather of house music. While it’s disputed as to whether he created house, there is no doubt he was one of it’s…
