Accompanying the song is its video which like its corresponding single artwork features a white mannequin in a chair as red paint seeps its way out of a speaker and the mannequin itself set to the ebbs and flows of “Save Me.”
About the track Party Favor says, “‘Save Me’ is an ode to the demons we’re all fighting constantly. Everyone’s going through something different all the time, and for me that’s dealing with anxiety. This song comes from the perspective of a person’s subconscious mind trying to rid itself of those demons, even when they keep coming back time and again.”
About Party Favor:
As an artist who completely pushes the boundaries of what’s seemingly possible, Party Favor (Dylan Ragland) is permanently changing the artistic landscape of music today. He’s collaborated with some of the biggest names in music including A$AP Ferg, Diplo, Gucci Mane, Offset, Lil Baby, Rich the Kid, and 2 Chainz, and released chart-topping music from his breakout hit “Bap U” (over 40 million streams) to his 2016 debut EP Party & Destroy, with the latter reaching #1 on US Dance Radio, #2 on iTunes Dance, and #7 on Billboard’s Dance radio charts. On the live front, Party Favor has performed across the globe at major festivals including Coachella, Creamfields, Billboard’s Hot 100 Fest, EDC Las Vegas, Ultra Music Festival among many others and can be found at his long-standing residency in Las Vegas with Hakkasan Group at their clubs Hakkasan, Omnia and Wet Republic.
Party Favor has landed sync deals with globally recognized brands including Google, Coca-Cola and T-Mobile as well as prime-time television commercials and ad campaigns for Mountain Dew, Gatorade, the NFL network, and most recently the new Fast and Furious trailer during the Super Bowl. He’s scored the entire Madden 21 video game as well as contributed an original song “ACTUP” for the game soundtrack, with “Bap U” featured in Amazon Prime Video’s May 2020 content reel highlighting their top movies and tv shows on the platform. His sync deals also span across box-office films including 2017’s Baywatch which featured four tracks from Party Favor throughout the film, as well as Neighbors 2, Life of The Party, The Purge, and hit TV series including HBO’s Silicon Valley, ABC’s Superstore and CW’s The Flash. Moving into the gaming world, Party Favor’s music has been placed in games including FIFA, MADDEN, NEED 4 SPEED among many other titles.
A true creative, Party Favor uses the knowledge of his film and acting experience to develop artistic visuals around each of his projects. His hit 2019 Layers debut album (over 35 million streams) and 2020 EP FRESH LAUNDRY saw the producer share personal stories of his life through the music and designed a one-of-a-kind visual experience to supplement each body of work. For his recent series Isolation Beats, Party Favor challenged himself to produce new beats each week and paired them with unique visuals crafted by his favorite video creators, eventually accompanied by the release of his full “ISOLATION ALBUM” on DSPs. Well-received by audiences across the globe, both ‘Layers’ and ‘FRESH LAUNDRY’ are expertly crafted releases, with the latter showing his growth into new genres by collaborating with the likes of Yung Pinch, Georgia Ku, Wes Period and RUNN.
Expanding his artistic horizons, Party Favor introduced a new club-focused house music side-project in 2019 called SIDEPIECE with fellow DJ Nitti Gritti. Their breakout hit “On My Mind” with Diplo (over 100 million streams to date) hit #1 on the Beatport charts for 21 consecutive weeks, #1 on US Dance Radio, was named the #1 most played track of 2020 on 1001Tracklists, and ultimately scored them a GRAMMY-nomination for ‘Best Dance Record.’ The pair notably performed last May during the EDC Las Vegas Livestream that became one of the most-viewed sets of the weekend.
Now in 2021, Party Favor is preparing for his next album masterpiece as he continues to express what it means to experiment in the ever-changing realm of electronic music.
