Year In Dance 2017 pt. 3 | The Top Dance Hits of the Year!

We’ve reached the end of the 2017 Year In Dance featuring the top dance hits of the year. For those that aren’t familiar with this series, each year Party Favorz compiles what I consider to be the most important dance music songs. Songs that are significant to the current pop and underground culture of dance…

Year In Dance 2017 pt. 2 | The Top Dance Hits of the Year!

Despite what I may have declared about the state of dance music in my last post, 2017 was not without some fantastic gems. Many of the songs fall into the electronic dance music category but aren’t really dance, rather sweet concoctions that have been remixed to give the originals an added boost and extend their playability. Excellent…

Year In Dance 2017 pt. 1 | The Top Dance Hits of the Year!

We’ve finally reached that time of year where Party Favorz reminisces over the best EDM hits of the year. The Year in Dance features the top dance hits of 2017 and as in past years, it’s all compiled by your humble host. I generally put this series together not just based on chart-toppers but look…

Year in Dance pt. 4 | The Biggest Dance Hits of 2016!

We have come to the end of the Year in Dance, featuring the biggest dance hits of 2016. I hope everyone has enjoyed this time-capsule for the year that was. While this may be the end of this series, we still have one more to go. That’s our annual Blow Your Own Horn mix which…

Year in Dance pt. 3 | The Biggest Dance Hits of 2016!

Even with its seismic shifts, 2016 was a really good year for dance music. Rihanna had a particularly great year with one release after another from her stellar (if not underappreciated) ‘Anti’ album. ‘Work’ and ‘Needed Me’ were standout tracks but her collaboration (again) with Calvin Harris really took the prize. ‘This Is What You…

Year in Dance pt. 2 | The Biggest Dance Hits of 2016!

2016 ushered in a sea-change of musical styles in dance music. While the big anthem is still a guaranteed hit; elements of our past have largely taken over the dance floor. 70’s disco is stronger than ever as Nile Rodgers has exerted his influence into several number one hits. A lot of folks aren’t aware…

Year in Dance pt. 1 | The Biggest Dance Hits of 2016!

OMFG! Party Favorz has made it through another year of delivering the biggest dance tunes straight to your ears. Even I can’t believe how far this little site has come going into our 10th year. To put things into perspective, we switched from self-managed hosting (which had gotten out of control and financially unmanageable) to managed…

Year in Dance 2015 pt. 5 | The Year’s Biggest Dance Hits!

We’ve finally made it to the 5th and final volume of the 2015 Year in Dance.  It’s been crazy around here lately, so I haven’t had much time to write-up my thoughts about the year that was but suffice to say it gets a mixed review in my book. If 2014 was the transitional year…

Year in Dance 2015 pt. 1 | The Year’s Biggest Dance Hits!

It’s the most wonderful time of year!  That is when Party Favorz rolls out our favorite dance tunes of the year that was.  Featuring the biggest and best in EDM and Deep House or as it’s now referred to as Future House from 2015, the Year in Dance has it all! In order to provide equal weight…

Time Capsule 2K14 | The Year’s Best House Music

We have finally arrived at the fourth and final volume of the 2014 Time Capsule and this one is a whopper!  This final set focuses on the year’s best house music.  From this summer’s massive feel-good Jubel by Klingande to Duke Dumont’s back to the 90s I Got U, this has been a very good…

Time Capsule 2K14 | Volume 3

Probably the single most important aspect of EDM in 2014 is the DJ.  In general, DJs are more than what their title implies.  They are also, producers and artists in their own right.  While many get their satisfaction by spinning in local clubs, a good many more regenerate and/or reinvigorate other musicians music by adding…

Time Capsule 2K14 | Volume 2

I’m back with the 2nd installment of the 2014 Time Capsule year-end round-up.  Overall, this year felt a bit restrained as far as EDM is concerned.  Sure we had our fun obligatory dance-craze song #Selfie by the Chainsmokers.  Previous year winners were Eat Sleep Rave Repeat by Fatboy Slim, Gangman Style by PSY, Barbra Streisand…

Time Capsule 2K14 | Volume 1

It’s that time of year where Party Favorz combs through and compiles the best EDM tracks of the year for our annual Time Capsule series.  2014 has been a year of transition for electronic music.  While the independent and major labels keep churning out those BIG ROOM anthems hoping to score a crossover hit from…

Time Capsule 2K13 v4

Finally kicking out the last installment of the Time Capsule 2K13 series. After working on all four sets for the past several months, I can honestly say and predict that EDM as we may know it is at the precipice of plateauing. That’s not to say that it won’t be as big as ever in…

Time Capsule 2K13 v3

As the holidays are quickly approaching, I am sending up the third installment of Time Capsule 2K13. Continuing the tradition of years past where I compile the year’s best dance hits, I am beginning to wonder if this multi-set series would be better condensed into maybe two volumes. Actually, when I originally started the year-end…

Time Capsule 2K13 v2

Pushing forward with the second set in the year-end recap I tried to mix it up a bit. Starting with the somber yet brilliant Afrojack take on Keane’s Sovereign Light Café it quickly switches to the more adolescent I Love It, Icona Pop’s summation of petulant youth. Floor bangers and sweeping love anthems pretty much…

Time Capsule 2K13 v1

Welcome to the 2K13 Time Capsule Edition, where I attempt to recap the year’s best EDM and squeeze it into four volumes. Not always an easy task as certain songs may be overlooked or didn’t make the cut, while others may question the inclusion of others. While it’s impossible for the Beatport and Billboard dance…

Time Capsule 2012 v4

For future reference, when I say I’m going to post something on a specific date, take it with a grain of salt LOL. The intent is always there but something always comes up or happens that prevents me from meeting my self-imposed deadline. I guess better late than never, right? Rounding out this series in…

Time Capsule 2012 v3

An interesting take-away from 2012 is just how prevalent and frankly easy it has become for DJs to take it out of the bedroom and bring their work to the masses.  Seemingly, people are making a name for themselves overnight. Liam Keegan and now Cosmic Dawn come to mind (though there are plenty of others…

Time Capsule 2012 v2

Volume 2 of Time Capsule 2012 has many of my favorite songs of the year. P!nk, Eva Simmons and Sander Van Doorn feat. Mayaeni had my favorite heartbreak songs. Love, anger and doomed relationships seemed to be at the top of my radar this year LOL. However the brilliant Zedd, Avicii and Porter Robinson equally…

Time Capsule 2012 v1

Welcome to the 2012 dance music retrospective. Formerly named the “Year-end Edition,” I thought it was more apropos to retitle these best of sets to what I’ve always referenced them to be. That is, something you’ll want to store away or bury in the backyard for safekeeping. Ten or Twenty years from now when you’re…

Year-end Edition 2011 v2

I’m finally getting around to posting the second volume of the Year-end Edition and here it is.  Packed with all sorts of goodies from 2011, there isn’t a bad egg in the bunch. With the MLK holiday coming up on Monday, I’ve already got a 3 day weekend reprise from school (go figure).  So, I’ll…

Year-end Edition 2011 v1

Welcome to the 5th annual Year-end Edition or as I like to call them “musical time capsules” that represent the very best in dance music for the year that was. While the 2011 version is condensed compared to previous years, I stuck to the biggest dance floor monsters that had us shaking, quaking, dropping and…
