OFFICIAL PRESS RELEASE
NEWS PROVIDED BY
Today, January 28, Ultra Records celebrates the arrival of “Superhuman,” a song by Party Favor and K.Flay. The title of the track refers to humans with enhanced characteristics that go beyond what is naturally found in us. Here alt-rock has its moment. This radio-ready jam incorporates catchy guitar riffs, steady kickdrums and a thumping bassline, showing off fresh aspects of Party Favor’s obvious versatility and featuring the always enticing stylings of singer and multi-instrumentalist K.Flay.
“The first time I heard the demo version of ‘Superhuman’ from K.Flay, I was in the car and had to pull over. We had sent some ideas back and forth but this one was different,” shares Party Favor. “I was so immediately excited about the potential and how awesome her voice was, the lyrics, I hadn’t had that kind of reaction to a demo in years. I drove straight home and worked on it right there and then, I was texting her ideas for the song in the middle of the night. I was so inspired and had an instant vision for what I could do with it, and honestly the majority of the song was finished that day. ‘Superhuman’ is one of my favorite songs I’ve ever made in my career, and to work on it with someone as authentic and talented as K.Flay, couldn’t ask for more.”
“I really like the idea of thinking about the word ‘superhuman’ in a different way,” adds K.Flay. “Flipping it on its head. Not as extraordinary but super ordinary. Imperfect and vulnerable and flawed. For me, there's something really beautiful about celebrating that.”
Over the last few months, Party Favor (Dylan Ragland) has been entertaining listeners with new music built around themes of mental health and personal awareness with songs like “Whenever You’re Around,” “Losing My Mind” featuring Elohim, “Save Me,” and most recently, “Anxious” feat. MASN. These songs and more will appear on a new Party Favor project to come in 2022.
Though his earth-shaking beats inspire the world’s rowdiest crowds, there’s more to the Los Angeles based producer and DJ dubbed Party Favor than the “party” alone. The highly-technical production skills and conceptual song-shaping talents of the artist born Dylan Ragland are among the reasons he’s a household name in dance music. From heavy, trap-rattled bangers to shimmery, synth-laced cuts, Party Favor proves his sonic aesthetic is boundless. Party Favor’s music always elevates the vibe, whether soundtracking films and arcade favorites, or blasting from stages like Las Vegas’s Hakkasan and Omnia in Las Vegas where he’s held high-profile residences and at major festivals such as Coachella, Creamfields and Ultra Music Festival, among hundreds of others.
Following a more reserved year at home, during which he snagged a GRAMMY nomination for his club-adjacent cut “On My Mind” which he produced alongside Nitti Gritti as SIDEPIECE, Party Favor also introduced viewers to his self-produced YouTube series “Kinda Isolated,” a side-project that shows off his on-camera and film-editing skills, as he invites electronic music’s key players into his home living room for candid conversations over craft cocktails. In 2021, Party Favor turns introspective with new music which sees the artist reveal the next era of his creative journey and tackle darker subject matter with the same high-energy treatments that have amassed him more 500 million streams to date and thrill-seeking bass chasers the world over. Hold tight, because this new chapter in Party Favor’s story is just getting started.
