Over the last few months, electronic music producer 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 and “Save Me.” Today, December 3, Party Favor teams with MASN, a burgeoning artist known for his dreamy melting pot of lo-fi beatcraft, indie experimentation, hip-hop fluidity, and lush pop for his latest single “Anxious.”

With lyrics written by MASN and a gentle production from Party Favor, the song takes a tender approach asking the listener to focus, reset and not take the blame for life’s stresses. “Reset, fuck stress, I’m breaking up with anxious // It’s not me, it’s just you, how else can I say this,” sings MASN in the song’s chorus.
“‘Anxious’ was born out of a desire to express my feelings towards anxiety in a song,” says Party Favor. “I struggle with anxiety and I know a lot of other people do as well. I had wanted to work with MASN for awhile, I knew he would be so perfect for this song. His vocals are incredible and I hope you enjoy it. This is one of the more mellow songs I’ve made and I’m excited to try something different.”
About Party Favor:
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.
