Party Favor releases quarantine-inspired LP, ‘THE ISOLATION ALBUM’
Trap phenomenon Party Favor made the most of the downtime induced by the COVID-19 pandemic and hunkered down in the studio to make music. Through the spring and now, the summer, the prodigious producer experimented with a number of different concepts and ended up producing enough material for THE ISOLATION ALBUM.
The aptly-titled, 13-track body of work mainly comprises beats and instrumentals that span a wide array of soundscapes and subgenres. From hip-hop instrumentals to ambient indie-electronic cuts to thumping trap selects, Party Favor showcases his versatility as a musical craftsman while giving fans insight into his creative consciousness during lockdown. The album as a whole is quick, 34-minute listen, however, fans can appreciate the depth and different layers with which he has framed this body of work.
In honor of his album and in the spirit of staying home, Party Favor is throwing his own livestream festival, “Party Favor presents Isolation Festival,” in partnership with Dancing Astronaut. The lineup features Dillon Francis, Sofi Tukker, A-Trak, and more. Fans can watch the live festivities at 4 p.m. EST/1 p.m. EST on Dancing Astronaut’s Facebook on July 18, and can view the set times, here.
