Welcome to the 2018 Year in Dance featuring the biggest Dance Club hits of the year!

Year In Dance 2017 pt 3

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

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…

Deep Funky 2007 pt. 2

Deep & Funky 2007 pt. 2 | Expanded and Remastered | Top Dance Hits of the Year

As promised, I’m sending part 2 of the Deep & Funky 2007 Year-end Edition. This set is packed with several of my personal favorites including Booty Luv’s “Boogie 2nite”, Cahill’s “Trippin On You” Degrees of Motion’s updated “Do You Want It Right Now” Tony Moran & Martha Wash’s “Keep Your Body Working” Nowak’s Boogie Oogie…

Year in Dance 2016 pt. 3

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 2016 pt. 1

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…

Time Capsule 2K14 v3

Time Capsule 2K14 | Volume 3 | Top Dance Hits of the Year

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 v2

Time Capsule 2K14 | Volume 2 | Top Dance Hits of the Year

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, Gangnam Style by PSY, Barbra Streisand…

Time Capsule 2013 v3 240

Time Capsule 2K13 v3 | Top Dance Hits of the Year

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 2012 v1 240

Time Capsule 2012 v1 | Top Dance Hits of the Year

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 2010 v4

Year-End Edition v4 | The Biggest Dance Songs of 2010

The Year-End Edition v4 is part of a four-set compilation featuring the biggest dance songs of 2010.  Unfortunately, the original post associated with it is no longer available but HEY! at least the podcast is still around for you to enjoy. Album : Year-End Edition 2010 | Volume 4 Genre : EDM, Electro, Commercial Year :…
