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 music with the most influential DJ’s (pro, semi-pro and bedroom) who have had a massive impact on the scene.
While the Year In Dance series began in 2007 when I started this blog, I’ve gone back a decade prior compiling those songs as well. These 3-5 set compilations are fairly comprehensive and I always recommend you store the ones that reflect most prominently in your life. 10 – 20 years from now, you’ll thank me, trust.
Because of the massive amount of content available on Party Favorz, I sometimes randomly pick something old from the current Top 20 just to give it a whirl. I’m a morning person so today I slapped on Time Capsule 2K14 | Volume 1 in my car and jammed to it while waiting for my morning news shows to come on. Even three years back brought great memories and as always, I’m blown away by how good these songs are. So heed my suggestion or totally ignore it; that’s up to you.
In the interim, I’ve been re-working the ultimate year-end dance party mix Blow Your Own Horn to ensure perfection. I’ve got about three versions already and may combine elements from all of them in the final output. Expect that to drop earlier than normal so I can resume a semblance of normality in my life through the end of the year [grin].
I hope everyone has been enjoying this dance music trip through 2017. Judging by the numbers, it appears you have been. I’ll be back in a week or so with the final blow-out of the year. Until then…ENJOY!
