New York-based DJ Louie Devito has signed on to mix the fourth volume in Ultra Records' Ultra.Dance CD compilation series. Devito is the top-selling non-hip-hop, beat-mixed compilation DJ in the U.S. with more than 1 million albums sold, according to Nielsen SoundScan.
"Louie Devito Presents Ultra.Dance 04" is due for an August release from Ultra. The three prior volumes, "Johnny Vicious Presents Ultra.Dance 01," "DJ Encore Presents Ultra.Dance 02" and "Johnny Vicious Presents Ultra.Dance 03," have collectively sold 250,000 copies in the U.S., according to Nielsen SoundScan.
The new disc is tipped to include Yoko Ono's "Walking on Thin Ice," a Pet Shop Boys-remixed version of which became a huge club hit earlier this year. Other songs slated for inclusion on the compilation are Room 5's former U.K. chart-topper "Make Luv," Jason Nevins & Holly James' "I'm in Heaven," Benny Benassi's "Satisfaction," Chris Cox's "I Believe," the Sax Brothers' "Careless Whisper" and Robbie Rivera's "I Can't Sleep." Other tracks are expected to be added to the mix in the coming weeks.
"I have always admired the approach [Ultra president Patrick Moxey] and Ultra have used to present their records," Devito said in a statement. "They have a tangible appeal to those who pride themselves on a certain lifestyle and I think this collaboration between us on 'Ultra.Dance 04' will help to expose what I do best to another audience."
