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!
