Dancemania presents Natsu Monogatari 2008 supported by 9LoveJ – Review

Natsu Monogatari 2008Dancemania presents Natsu Monogatari 2008 supported by 9LoveJ (CD+DVD)
Release Date: 6/25/08
Price: 3000 yen

I got my copy yesterday and have given it a few listens. It does some things better than Natsu Monogatari 2007, but there are also a few missteps that keep it from being a truly great release.

I think one of the main reasons for my disappointment is that most of the new tracks were made available long before the CD actually came out, so I had already been listening to them for months. Some of the re-edits helped to breathe some new life to the songs, but for the most part I felt like I had heard the entire album already.

If you can get past that, or if you’ve yet to hear the new tracks, then you’ll find that the album is mixed very well and has a solid selection of songs.

Full review after the jump.

Hime Trance Speed – Update

Posted by DanceMaster on June 26, 2008

Hime Trance SpeedHime Trance Speed
Release Date: 7/30/08
Price: 1886 yen

Amazon Japan put up the final cover. I don’t think it’s a Disney princess this time. Maybe Disney are on to them.

Once again, here are the previously announced tracks:

01. Ima Kono Toki Dake / Shin Yoshimune Soundtrack
02. Sousei no Aquarion (Speed Mix) / Dank-One feat. ari
03. Tamashii no Refrain [from Shin Seiki Evangelion] / Kayoco
04. God Knows… [from Suzumiya Haruhi no Yuutsu] /
05. Motteke! Sailor Fuku [from Lucky*Star] /
06. Sorairo Days [from Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann] /
07. Mizu no Hoshi he Ai wo Komete (For Us to Decide) [from Kidou Senshi Zeta Gundam] / Haruna Ochi
08. Prologue / Tsukasa
09. Butterfly (Speed Mix) / Smile.dk
10. Max Don’t Have Sex with Your Ex (Speed Mix) / E-Rotic
11. Sky High (Speed Mix) / DJ Miko
12. Girlfriend (Avril Lavigne Cover) / Hanna
13. Cartoon Heroes (Aqua Cover) / Barbie Young
14. Paya Paya (Speed Remix) / Dank-One feat. ari
15. D.O.U.B.T!!! ~Ai no Kakehiki wa DA*U*TO*~ (Speed Remix) / 4 Skips vs. Floorbreaker
16. I Do I Do I Do (Speed Remix) / Creamy
17. Sound of My Dream / DJ 92

There’s also some news on more potential tracks:

18. New Song / Kei (Confirmed)
19. New Song / REDALiCE (Confirmed)
20. Lucky Girl (Remix) / Miki Matsuzawa (Unconfirmed)

So, not only are EMI licensing existing J-Core tracks, they’ve apparently commissioned brand-new songs as well. Actually, it’s unknown if REDALiCE’s track will be an original song or just a remix of one of the Hime Trance songs. If it’s the latter, then I’d expect the Hime Trance songs to be remixed by the likes of kors k and DJ Shimamura.

Sadly, there’s still no news on whether Saifam or LED will contribute new tracks.

Hime Trance Best Sales

Posted by DanceMaster on June 26, 2008

Apparently Japan doesn’t share my ambivalence towards Hime Trance Best, because it’s been doing quite well in terms of sales. After six weeks Hime Trance Best has sold a total of about 72,000 copies. For comparison, it took Hime Trance 3 a total of 7 weeks to reach 43,000 copies sold, while Hime Trance Best moved 46,000 units by its 3rd week out. At this rate, Hime Trance Best should sell at least as well as Hime Trance 2.

The good news is that this could be signaling an upswing in the popularity of trance once again. If so, maybe we can finally put a stop to the endless repeats.

22. [2:54] The Rush (Original Club Mix) / Accuface
23. [3:01] Pomp and Circumstance / DJ Yoshinori

A whole lot of repeats, but also a few noteworthy new tracks. “Sousei no Aquarion” really has to die, however. As good as the Delaction version is, I really didn’t need to see it yet again.

Quake Records will be releasing two new singles this summer under the sub-label, Generator Tunes.

The Fruits single is noteworthy because it includes a Japanese cover of the song “Caramelldansen,” complete with misheard lyrics.
Fruits Official Site
Samples

Meanwhile, I have a sneaking suspicion that one of the remixes of “Lucky Girl” may well end up on Hime Trance Speed. The DJ Shimamura remix is quite catcy, so I’m hoping it does make an appearance.

Mega Trance 09 – Pre-release Info

Posted by DanceMaster on June 20, 2008

Mega Trance 09Mega Trance 09
Release Date: 7/9/08
Price: 2190 yen

It’s been almost a year since Mega Trance 08, but Mega Trance is finally back! The cover art has taken on a new direction, looking more similar to the cover of Mega Trance Best II rather than that of Mega Trance 08. Personally, I hope they retool it — the logo looks too much like “Mega 09 Trance.”

The tentative list follows:

01. Lost in Tokyo / DJ U*Hey? feat. Colina
02. Feel / Dance Music Company
03. Because of You (D.M.C Mix) / Sid
04. Longing Love / Texas Boys
05. Scorpion (DJ Ten Remix) / Oriental Space
06. Tokyo / DJ Kaya feat. Keen
07. Lift Me Up / Sesto Sento
08. sui-ren (New Version) / kagura
09. Shut Up and Drive / Angelica
10. Sexy Love (New Mix) / Patis
11. God Is a Girl (Kick Chaser Remix) / Groove Coverage

Looks to be a good lineup. Unlike many of the other major trance releases this year, this one isn’t chock full o’ repeats. Plus, “Shut Up and Drive” is all but guaranteed to be a new remix, and hopefully that means other Saifam remixes as well.

Pre-order at CDJapan.

S&K are back!

Posted by DanceMaster on June 15, 2008

http://www.sandkmusic.com/

Additionally, check out Kirk Monteux’s solo album, which is decidedly different from his S&K work: http://www.kirkmonteux.com/

I originally read that as “Sand K Music” ^^; Anyway, the duo best known for “Get Up’n Move” are back and producing new material. The last new song they produced for Dancemania was back in 2002, so it’s definitely been a while since we last heard from them.

S (Sugardaddy, a.k.a. Brian Cornell) and K (Kirk Monteux) began their Dancemania career with “Get Up ‘n Move” way back in 1998. The song first appeared on Dancemania Bass #2 before being chosen for inclusion on Dance Dance Revolution 2nd Mix. From there S&K went on to appear on various Dancemania Speed releases. Their complete Dancemania discography is as follows:

1998 – Get Up ‘n Move [from Dancemania Bass #2]
2001 – Sound of the Nations [from Dancemania Speed 6]
2001 – Going to Suzuka (Shoemaker Mix) [from Dancemania Speed 7]
2001 – Happy Again (S&K Mix) [from Dancemania Speed 7]
2002 – Party Time (Speedy Mix) [from Dancemania Speed 8]
2002 – Everybody (Speedy Mix) [from Dancemania Speed 9]
2002 – Get Up ‘n Move (Speed Mix) [from Dancemania Speed 10]
2002 – Prelude -from Cello Suite No.1 in G major, BWV 1007 [from classical Speed]

Anyway, I wrote them an e-mail and got this reply:

“thanks for contacting us. Kirk and I have decided to kick off a new era of S&K. In a few weeks, you will be able to purchase and preview all of our music, as well as new tracks we are currently working on.

We would love to hear more from our fan base, so please help us in getting more feedback to what you would like, not just in downloads, but in music direction as well.”

So, there you have it. Either leave messages at the Dancemania EX forums and I’ll relay them, or e-mail S&K directly and let them know what you want. Personally, I’d love to see more Speed stuff from them. “Sound of the Nations” and “Going to Suzuka” were some of my all-time favorites from the Speed series, and the mere thought of having new songs in that style is very exciting. Please help spread the word!

19. “Ichigo Mashimaro” ~ Ichigo Complete / Ma15 + Maki
20. “Aria the Natural” ~ Euforia / Camry

Well, unlike Exit Trance Best #07, this is mostly new tracks. I don’t really follow anime, so I’m not familiar with any of these. If you liked the previous albums, though, you’ll probably enjoy this one as well.

It’s as if Quake put all of their songs into a random mix generator, and this is what came out. They could have at least put in a few new songs or remixes, but as far as I can tell all of the songs are repeats from other albums.

I think the worst offense is “Bad Boy.” There’s absolutely no excuse to have the original mix on a current trance compilation. Why not remix something off Cascada’s current album?

Blah, this year continues to be the year of repeats.
