It’s October and it’s time for Annie Mac’s annual review of the hottest dance records of the year that she has been instrumental in introducing to the nation’s pleasure-synapses through her groundbreaking Radio 1 Friday show and packed DJ schedule.
On this year's album, 2011’s finest moments are represented. Azari & III ‘Reckless For Your Love’, Toddla T’s ‘Take It Back’, SBTRKT’s ‘Wildfire’ Jamie XX’s remix of Adele’s ‘Rolling In The Deep’. If you’ve been out clubbing this year this neat comp brings together the highlights as well as pointing to some names likely to be lighting up 2012 (Jai Paul).
Annie has continued to take her signature sound worldwide in 2011; continuing what Diplo has called his ‘favourite party on the island’ in Ibiza as well as gigs coming up across North America and Australia this autumn. Meanwhile the Annie Mac Presents nights remain one of the biggest nightlife brands across the UK, with a run across all four compass points of the country in the coming months to accompany this compilation.
The album launch party is at London’s KOKO on 8th October. Buy tickets from gigsandtours.com.
