Super Anime Remix Vol. 1 ~A New Euro Remix~ – Final Release Info

Posted by DanceMaster on August 30, 2008

Super Anime Remix Vol. 1Super Anime Remix Vol. 1 ~A New Euro Remix~
Release Date: 9/24/08
Price: 2286 yen

The final track list has been revealed, and it’s slightly different than the tentative one posted earlier. If you were a fan of the J-euro songs from the beginning of Natsu Monogatari then you’re sure to love this as well. At 2286 yen for two discs it’s a steal, and certainly much less costly than purchasing the tracks direct from Digital Koubou.

Full list after the jump.

Yet another anime dance compilation. This one comes from Dreamusic (who previously released Carlito’s albums in Japan).

Disc 1 will be a non-stop mix, while Disc 2 will have full-length versions. Early track list after the jump.

ZIP Dance Nation – Final Release Info

ZIP Dance Nation
ZIP Dance Nation – ZIP FM 15th Anniversary ~Best Hit Dance~
Release Date: 9/17/08
Price: 2381 yen

It’s an Avex release with the word “Best” in the title. You know what that means: NIGHT OF FIRE! Also included are “Caramelldansen” and a bunch of other overexposed songs, though Avex took mercy upon us and didn’t put “Sousei no Aquarion” on. There are also a handful of new tracks, including a DJ Kaya feat. OHC remix, so it’s not a complete waste.

Final track list after the jump.

Dance Dance Revolution X

Posted by DanceMaster on August 26, 2008

Konami recently announced a default song list for the upcoming DDR game, Dance Dance Revolution X, and there were a few surprises included.

http://www.ddronlinecommunity.com/forums/3/forum_topics/428

10.) Butterfly (2008 X-edit) – The mega-hit “Butterfly” was released on the original DanceDanceRevolution in Japan. Now, ushering in a new decade of DDR sounds, “Butterfly” has been reworked exclusively for DanceDanceRevolution X! Enjoy it’s familiar, “impossible to resist”, melody, while exploring the fresh new arrangement.

11.) DUB-I-DUB (2008 X-edit) – Making a sensation both on and off the DDR dance-floor, “Dub-I-Dub” has been reworked exclusively for DanceDanceRevolution X! “Dub-I-Dub” was first released in 1995, and was featured in the early DDR machines throughout Japan.

The wording seems intentionally vague, so it’s a bit unclear whether the songs will be actual remixes or merely just edits of the original. It also remains to be seen if any other classic Dancemania songs will receive the “X-edit” treatment.

Fifth release in the Aerodynamic series mixed by DJ Murauchi. The previous releases mostly had repeats from other Exit Trance series, and the fact that this is called Aerodynamic Best likely means that it’ll feature repeats of repeats.

Exit Trance presents Akachan Trance – Pre-release Info

Posted by DanceMaster on August 23, 2008

Exit Trance presents Akachan Trance
Release Date: 11/5/08
Price: 2000 yen

Baby Trance. I wish I was kidding. My best guess is that this will have trance covers of lullabies, though I have a sneaking suspicion that “Caramelldansen” and “Sousei no Aquarion” will show up no matter what.

It’s almost as if Quake purposely choose every theme except the one I actually want: VGM Trance.

Exit Trance Best #08 – Pre-release Info

Posted by DanceMaster on August 22, 2008

Exit Trance Best #08
Release Date: 11/5/08
Price: 1905 yen

The main Exit Trance series has been floundering lately. The influx of anime tracks beginning with Exit Trance #05 was bad enough, but the fact that the seventh release didn’t even have a single new song was just unforgivable. The upcoming eighth release in the series promises to have songs from DJ Yoshinori, Cascada, DJ Murauchi, and Kindervater, though it remains to be seen if the songs will actually be new.

Just a quick update about Buchiage Parance #8. The new Kei track will be a cover of the anime song, “Tamashii no Refrain.” It’s unknown if it’ll be trance or euro, but Kei has been doing a lot of euro lately.

Style Returns!

Posted by DanceMaster on August 20, 2008

Style is back! Style is a DJ mix series from EMI that dates back to 1997 and was often cross-promoted with Dancemania in its early days. In the past, Style albums have featured a variety of genres, but have mainly focused on house and techno. The Mademoiselle Yulia album I posted about before will be a part of the series, which was last seen back in 2006. It’s interesting that EMI are reviving the series after being dormant for so long. Hopefully that bodes well for Dancemania making a comeback.

The Cartoon World of Jenny Rom – Digital Downloads

Posted by DanceMaster on August 18, 2008

Jenny Rom

Saifam released this on iTunes in early June, but I never noticed. ^^; It’s a compilation of all of Jenny Rom’s songs (just the slower dance versions, unfortunately) plus that megamix Saifam produced recently. If you were to buy these tracks from Saifam’s website it would cost you the equivalent of about 22 bucks, but this album is only $11.99. Plus, you get the tracks in 256 kbps instead of Saifam’s 192.

R25 Speed Anime Trance Best 2Exit Trance presents R25 Speed Anime Trance Best 2
Release Date: 9/3/08
Price: 1905 yen

Aside from “Sousei no Aquarion,” there’s one other anime theme that’s seemingly showed up on every anime dance compilation ever. Somehow Quake have managed to avoid covering this particular song. That is, until now. Can you guess which overused anime theme will serve as the lead track? Answer after the jump.
