Joe Gauthreaux’s Winter Party Set

Sometimes the middle of the party is the worst place to focus—and particularly on the music. Your eyes overwhelmed with a kaleidoscope of callipygian excess, and your mouth moving a mile a minute as you socialize with everyone you haven’t spoken to since—at least yesterday, and the cocktails are flowing and the world is rolling and you’re dancing, to be sure, but maybe with only one ear tuned to the music.

And so it’s not until later—when a set is released on a deejay’s website and dropped onto your iPod—and you find yourself flying at 38,000 feet—and then, only then, are you really discovering the musical genius of a party.

That’s how it’s been for us with Joe G.’s Winter Party 2008 set from the 2nd of March 2008. Hearing it again, as if for the first time, for four days straight in a hotel room, and then home again, playing it over and over—at the pool, on the balcony, and when making dinner. It’s a perfect summer soundtrack: upbeat and happy, with artful transitions and thought-provoking segues. It’s the sort of aural landscape that pinpricks the memory and takes you back—to the beach, to your last vacation, your last cruise—and makes you raise your arms and dance again in your kitchen, as you did on the beach. Get happy; grab a download of Joe G’s Winter Party 2008—and relive the journey all summer long.
