Year-end Edition 2007 | Deep & Funky | Top Dance Hits of the Year

Year End Deep and Funky 2007 240 1This 2-set series has been expanded and remastered. You can find it here.


The evening before: As I am writing this on Christmas Eve, I can’t help but look back on the year that was. For me, it wasn’t exactly the best. However, when I really do some soul searching, I realize just how fortunate I am. I have a nice roof over my head, a refrigerator stocked with food for tomorrow’s feast and a wonderful partner of seven years who I owe the world. I also realize that not everyone else is as blessed. It is for that reason that I am grateful for these things that have been bestowed on me. Let’s face it, this is just a silly little blog about house music. But it’s something that I hold dear in my heart. As a kid, I can remember sitting in grandma’s rocking chair during Christmas with my headphones on listening to the year-end top 40 countdown; pretty much-ignoring everyone else. “Where’s Keith?” they’d ask. Oh, he’s just drowning himself in that “devil’s music”. If it would make them feel any better, I’m listening to some classic Christmas tunes as I write this. You know, the kind that you heard when you were growing up and has now been remade by your favorite pop artist. As it relates to my last post, Mom & Dad’s music get’s recycled and slapped with some new beats to bring it into the here and now.

Music has always been an integral part of my life. I’d mow all the neighbor’s lawns for $20 a pop just to pay for my music. (I didn’t mow my parent’s yard because they didn’t feel they should have to pay me; so they got a yardman instead…lol). A devoted fan of all things music from, Pop, Alternative, Rock and House, I’ve never been able to quench my insatiable thirst for the beat. In junior high, high school and beyond, if you were having a party, I was the one to invite. Not because I was friends with everyone or the most popular, but because I always had the best music. As the methods in which we can buy music has become easier and more convenient, that’s all changed now. No more hopping on my bike and riding ten miles to the nearest record store with the money I earned mowing lawns to buy the latest releases.

And so it goes, the love for music I’ve carried as a child has made its way into my adult life. If you haven’t guessed yet, I am most passionate about all things house. I’m not really sure where that fascination stems from, but it’s there and undeniable. With that, I present you with my final installment for the year; and what a big one it is! Welcome to the year-end edition of the funkiest part of 2007! Now to be fair, I re-discovered my roots during the summer. So it’s quite possible that I’ve left off something of great importance. Considering how difficult it is putting retrospectives together, that would be practically inevitable. The first two volumes are the funkiest of the bunch. Guaranteed disco lover’s heaven on earth! Plenty of Moto Blanco, 7th Heaven, and Seamus Haji to go around. The third installment is not as deep as it might suggest. Most of the amazing house tunes with vocals that made it onto my Deep Editions are represented along with some fantastic smooth house that would not have been appropriate for the two funkier mixes.

Now that I’m finished, I think I’ll take the next week off from blogging and focus my attention on my better half. I just tagged and processed well over 200 new songs. I still need to go through and listen to everything to decide what will make it onto the next installments of Party Favorz. So you can expect a great January. I’ll definitely be serving up some brand spanking new Deep, Funky and Progressive mixes for your listening pleasure. Until then, I want to wish everyone a very Happy Holiday and a safe and prosperous New Year! I’ll catcha on the other side!

The morning after: What a fabulous evening I had! My better half made a wonderful dinner of blackened flounder with seasoned vegetables and boiled shrimp for appetizers. Friends came over and brought a movie that ended up being a pleasant surprise. If anyone out there is an aspiring artist, DJ, singer/songwriter and you have a bit of a soft heart, you should watch “Once”. While I am not a movie critic, I cannot recommend this movie enough. What a fabulous story. Even if you’re disappointed by the ending, you’ll still feel all warm and fuzzy inside. Looking around, it appears that Santa may have been here last night. Considering how thin things have been around here lately, that is a definite surprise…and I do love surprises!

Speaking of surprises, it was my original intent to critique each song on this remaining volume, but my head is swimming in an ocean of alcohol from a few to many Heini’s last nights and I don’t have the willpower to muster it up. I hope that you can forgive me. Santa really wanted to deliver all his gifts before everyone wakes up this morning, so here it is.

Happy Holidays!!!
