A Party Girl (1995) tribute mix consisting entirely of tracks either appearing in the film or mentioned by Leo (Guillermo Diaz) when he’s putting together his DJ set (specifically the montage sequence where Parker Posey helps him navigate the new filing system for all his records.) This is admittedly a pretty niche project for me but I’ve always admired the way whoever did the music consulting for the film really knew their shit. Like it’s a really well-curated time capsule of 90s club culture, ranging from bitch house to diva house to disco to hip hop, with more surprising deep cuts than you’d expect from a low budget indie comedy. Sadly I wasn’t able to include everything that’s played or mentioned (Madonna’s “Up Down Suite” didn’t make the cut, for example) but it still ended up a more comprehensive soundtrack than the official soundtrack album (which is really lacking.)
