THEN & NOW: ‘Free’ – Ultra Nate

Club and Dancefloor Queen, Ultra Nate – who we have featured in our Where Are They Now? series – is back with a brand new album, her first for five years. Simply titled “Ultra”, the album comprises of 13 new tracks as well as a new mix of her biggest and best known hit, “Free”.

Ultra can trace her musical journey back to the late 1980’s in the New York club scene and she was influenced by dance music in the early 1990’s enough to write and record her own tunes. She achieved her first US Dance chart hit in 1992 and her first number one two years later.

In 1997, Ultra released “Free”, the song that would become her signature tune. It not only topped the US Dance chart, it became a huge commercial hit around the world and is recognised as one of the greatest dance anthems of all time. This new mix comes courtesy of producers and DJ’s Franco De Mulero and Gregor Salto as a celebration of the tracks’s 25th anniversary.
