With the "Ibizafication" of pop continuing to dominate the charts, this 2011 edition of the dance scene's most authoritative compilation series, The Ministry of Sound Annual, is a much-needed alternative snapshot of the real deal. Indeed, apart from the ubiquitous David Guetta ("Grrr") and Dizzee Rascal ("Dirtee Disco"), you won't find many artists on the three-CD collection who have succumbed to the in vogue urban electro-pop sound. Instead, its 60 tracks concentrate on the kind of authentic club anthems that are destined to be blaring everywhere from Ibiza to Ayia Napa over the next 12 months. There are still several Top Ten hits from the likes of Sidney Samson ("Riverside," Example ("Kickstarts"), and Swedish House Mafia ("One"), and remixes of classic '90s tunes from Stretch & Vern ("I'm Alive") and Nalin & Kane ("Beachball"), but the majority of the album will be less familiar to casual clubbers, with underground tunes from Vato Gonzales ("Badmann Riddim"), Kris Menace ("Walking on the Moon"), and Drop the Lime ("Hot As Hell") nestling alongside new cuts from some of the genre's pioneers like Paul Oakenfold ("Firefly"), Underworld ("Always Loved a Film"), and BT ("Every Other Way"). Reflecting the increasing emergence of dubstep, the third disc is dominated by the sound's breakthrough artists from Katy B's "On a Mission" to Skream's "How Real," but if sub-woofer basslines and minimal, brooding rhythms leave you cold, there are also plenty of offerings from the worlds of drum'n'bass (Danny Byrd's "Ill Behaviour," Unicorn Kid's "Wild Life"), grime (Wretch 32's "Traktor," Mz Bratt's "Selecta"), vocal house (Tim Berg's "Seek Bromance," Alex Gaudino's "I'm in Love" ), and trance (Tiesto's "C'Mon," Felix da Housecat's "Thee Anthem"). The album loses a little credibility with covers of Yolanda Be Cool's "We No Speak Americano" and Edward Maya's "Stereo Love" from Marco Calliari and PJ, respectively chosen ahead of the originals, but overall, Ministry of Sound: The Annual 2011 sustains the quality of its previous releases, ensuring it remains one of the definitive dance compilations in the process.
