[Preview] “ULTRA DANCE” Is Back For It’s 15th Edition Out On Ultra Music Today January 21, 2014
America¹s favorite mix compilation is back with its newest installment; Ultra Dance 15, a quality driven massive collection of dance/pop hits and dance floor fillers. Continuing in the blazing footsteps of the Ultra Dance series, this double disc package includes all the biggest radio and dance/ pop hits of the year. It remains the largest selling dance compilation in North America, and the go-to collection for both pop and dance music enthusiasts.
The cover girl for Ultra Dance 15 is American model and actress, Melanie Iglesias. The Brooklyn-born 26-year-old brunette beauty got her claim to fame after Maxim launched their annual search for the sexiest unknown girl in 2010. Not only did she conquer over 7,000 applicants to score the title of the Hometown Hotties Champion, but also she worked her way up to Maxim’s Hot 100 and graced their special edition cover within just a few years.
Since then Melanie has topped glossy print features in the premiere issue of the World’s Most Beautiful, was named the “Woman of 2012” by Esquire, and reached number 2 in Vibe Magazine‘s “30 Sexiest Celebrities Under 30” in 2012. Today the sexy web sensation is known for being featured in “The hottest video on the Internet,” and has made a name for herself by starring in MTV‘s hit series Guy Code, Girl Code, and the Guy Code spin off, Guy Court. Ultra’s Dance 15 compilation also comes with an exclusive poster of the cover girl.
But let’s get down to the music — Ultra 15’s all-star tracklist includes chart topping sensations such as MK with his vocal remix of Storm Queen’s Look Right Through, Chris Malinchak’s single So Good To Me, and This Is What It Feels Like from first time collaborators Armin van Buuren and Trevor Guthrie; along with a few of the year’s biggest comebacks including Work B**ch, a surprise steamy single from pop sensation Britney Spears, and Grammy Award Winning legendary DJ, Benny Benassi’s Back To The Pump, which Rolling Stone called an “instant club classic.”
Additional highlights include remixes from the year¹s most popular singles, with Cedric Gervais’ remix of Lana Del Rey’s Summertime Sadness, Will Sparks‘ remix of Robin Thicke, T.I. and Pharrell‘s Blurred Lines, and the Jump Smokers remix of London-based boy band, One Direction on the Best Song Ever.
The award winning annual compilation is continuous mix of 24 songs attracting the likes of both pop and dance music enthusiasts alike with it¹s crossover appeal that continues to dominate on both mainstream radio and in clubs worldwide. Disc One kicks off with DJ Mag’s #1 DJ of 2013, Hardwell‘s extended mix of “Dare You” featuring Matthew Koma, while Disc Two opens with Diplo and GTA‘s collaboration titled “Boy Oh Boy,” featuring hard-hitting electro house and a moombahton version of Missy Elliott‘s fierce lyrics from her old school anthem,”Work It.” On the other end of the spectrum is Kaskade’s Last Chance from his album release Atmosphere, which DJ Mag claims “almost got more hype than a Daft Punk reunion show. As the height of dance music continues to rise throughout the culture of mainstream pop, Ultra Music has compiled the ultimate party mix keeping music fans on their toes and on the dancefloor for what¹s to come.
