Ultra Records has released some of the biggest hits in dance music throughout its lifespan. Artists like deadmau5, Pitbull, and Steve Aoki have contributed to the label’s extensive catalog, and in celebration of 25 years Ultra will release a new remix package entitled ULTRA25.
Patrick Moxey, Ultra Publishing & Records President & Founder, has always been fascinated by the ability of a remix to give new life to a track from a previous era. The compilation features many combinations in this spirit including Galantis‘s remix of Benny Benassi‘s “Cinema” and Solardo‘s remix of Roger Sanchez‘s “Release Yo’Self. ”
“I love it when producers who have been around for a while work with the new guys. And sometimes I’m shocked at how well the new artists are studying the past to generate the present. One of our roles here at Ultra Music after 25 years is to connect those dots.Like when I gave the parts from Marshall Jefferson’s house music classic ‘Move Your Body’ to Solardo and they reworked it and turned it into a big hit. Taking something that’s 25 or 30 years old and giving it a new sound and making it come alive again is great,” says Moxey.
