Sticking with the poptacular landscape of the previous volume, Ultra Dance 12 is split evenly between club tracks that are pop (Yolanda Be Cool and DCUP’s “We No Speak Americano,” Duck Sauce’s “Barbara Streisand”) and pop tracks that are clubby, often because of a remix (Kesha’s “Tik Tok,” Katy Perry’s “Teenage Dream” remixed by club star Kaskade). Long Island DJ Vic Latino returns for some skilled mixing, making the two-disc set flow like a chic club during prime time. The song selection is as strong as ever, since Ultra’s licensing department rarely skimps, here ponying up the dough for big names like David Guetta, Robyn, Maroon 5, and Deadmau5.
