Ultra Weekend, Vol. 7

The Ultra label’s Weekend series usually goes for the big names, but on Ultra Weekend, Vol. 7, only Kelly Rowland, Kelis, will.i.am, and Deadmau5 fall firmly into the “superstar” category, and three of them are only “featured” artists. Still, that’s only a symptom of the state of club music in 2011, with playlists filled with more “true” dance music and less remixes from pop artists. Here the prime numbers include Rowland and Alex Gaudino’s “What a Feeling,” Calvin Harris’ “Bounce,” and Serge Devant’s retro-minded “3 A.M. Eternal.” ~ David Jeffries
