Summer Anthems 2011by MC Mario
Continuing his prolific output, Canada's most successful dance DJ Mario Tremblay, aka MC Mario, returns with possibly the first installment of yet another new compilation series, Summer Anthems 2011. The Montreal club owner and Virgin Radio host's second album of the year sticks pretty closely to the formula of his Mixdown, Sun Factory, and Most Wanted albums, combining extended and club edits of some of the biggest commercial floor-fillers of the year, with remixes of future club classics and several of his own productions. Alongside Canadian number ones from Lady Gaga (Manhattan Clique Radio Remix of "Born This Way") and Jennifer Lopez (the No Rap Club Edit of "On the Floor"), there are pulsing international tunes from Taio Cruz (Wideboys' Radio Edit of "Higher"), Alexandra Stan ("Mr. Saxobeat"), and Dev (Static Revenger Remix of "Bass Down Low"), contributions from some of the burgeoning Dutch dance scene's leading figures (Karl Wolf's "Ghetto Love," Tiësto's "Don't Ditch," Laidback Luke's cover of Queen's "We Will Rock You"), and home-grown artists such as Quebec-based Mario Calliari ("Bella Ciao"). The minimal techno of "I'm Ready," the Deadmau5-esque electro of "Come 2 Me," and the sax-fueled vocal house of "It's Forever (Sax Bomb)" justify Mario's pioneering reputation, but whether you're a fan of the entrepreneurial maverick or not, Summer Anthems 2011 should contain enough floor-fillers to kickstart the weekend of most mainstream clubbers.
