A few days ago, UMFTV put up their hour long movie recapping Ultra Music Festival in Miami. Not only was the production and content of the video first class, but the soundtrack for the film was equally as impressive. The 19 song setlist was a perfect encapsulation of the event, with music ranging across every genre of electronic from dubstep and drum & bass to thumping electro house to deep techno and electronica.
What I’ve done is taken the hour long tracklist within the video and extended it with the full versions of the songs to form a nearly 2 hour long playlist that basically doubles as an essential mix for Ultra Music Festival 2012. The flow from start to finish is perfectly aligned, and even the inclusion of “Levels” is so well timed it didn’t make me want to skip over it. Sometimes we lose sight of some of these older tracks in all the hype that surrounds new music, so it’s nice to go back and revisit a few favored classsics.
ULTRA is one of those playlists that will take you back to the exact time you first heard some of these tracks (i.e. Guetta’s “Little Bad Girl,” remember how epic it was when it came out?!), and is yet another notch on my long list of favorite SIS mixtapes. Make sure to actually watch the movie the songs come from (if you’ve read this far I’m not sure why you wouldn’t), and download the two part zip file of the 19 tracks below.
