When you talk about vocal powerhouses who’ve dazzled the world, Whitney Houston is the diva who instantly comes to mind. Her voice, a stunning blend of range and emotion, has been an irreplaceable part of our musical fabric. What makes Whitney even more remarkable is how her iconic songs were brilliantly reimagined for the dance floor that have kept us on our feet time and time again. Today, we at Party Favorz are elevating this adoration to the next level with an updated tribute mix.
As we approached the close of 2017, I found myself reflecting on the incredible support from our donors, contributors, and engaged community. Your involvement is the sole reason I’ve committed to another year of bringing quality dance music to the masses. To express our gratitude, we’ve assembled a thank-you mix centered around Whitney Houston to usher in a vibrant 2018.
The initial plan was to create an entirely new set of remixes, but after a few listens, it felt uninspiring. Some of the newer remixes didn’t add any unique layers to the originals; they felt formulaic and out of sync. So, I pivoted, replacing the lackluster remixes with a blend of the timeless originals that have made Whitney’s songs the classics they are. The aim was to rejuvenate the initial tribute while incorporating contemporary insights into the mix, without losing the magic that makes these songs stand out.
This project was no walk in the park. Compiling this tribute mix took nearly two weeks of diligent work. And truth be told, by the time I completed it just yesterday, the thought of spending another hour and 40 minutes scrutinizing the mix was exhausting. That said, I meticulously edited the songs and believe that the compilation is technically sound—here’s hoping it resonates with you as well.
If this mix doesn’t quite capture your imagination, feel free to enjoy our original Whitney Houston Tribute from 2009, which still holds its own. But for now, as we welcome a new year, here’s to wishing everyone a marvelous and energetic 2018.
Until the next time…ENJOY!
