Super Anime Remix Touge – Final Release Info

Posted by DanceMaster on December 10, 2008

SAR TougeSuper Anime Remix Touge
Release Date: 12/24/08
Price: 2381 yen

I originally said this was the sequel to Super Anime Remix Vol. 1, but it turns out that it’s just an interim sub-release before the real Vol. 2 (more on that tomorrow). “Touge” in this context seems to refer to touge racing, so the album is basically a way to capitalize off Initial D’s success.

The track list mostly comprises new songs, though I spot a couple of repeats.

Lolitabot – Lolitabot (Single)

Posted by DanceMaster on December 9, 2008

LolitabotLolitabot
Release Date: 12/08
Price: $3.96

A new single from Disko Warp Records, who collaborated with the Smile.dk team for “Doki Doki.” “Lolitabot” has catchy lyrics and a really strong, memorable synth hook. However, like a lot of hardcore these days, there’s a little too much emphasis on bass for me. Hardcore fans will love it, though, so if you’re in to the genre then do yourself a favor and check out the Initial P remix at the very least. Myself, I wish they had included a slower dance remix akin to what Saifam usually does for Jenny Rom songs.

Digital downloads now available at CDBaby.

Price: 2838 yen

What better Christmas present than a CD+DVD set full of repeats and hostalk? In addition to Tsukasa’s woefully underexposed “In My Heart,” you also get a bunch of other trance, psychedelic, house and anime repeats. Oh, joy!

Exit Trance presents Speed Anime Trance Complete Best – Final Release Info

Posted by DanceMaster on December 7, 2008

SAT Complete BestSAT Complete BestExit Trance presents Speed Anime Trance Complete Best
Release Date: 12/17/08
Price: 2667 yen (Regular Edition) or 2857 yen (Limited Edition)

Looks like I was a tad wrong about this one. I thought it would be purely repeats. However, according to CD Japan, SATCB will feature re-recorded vocals, remixes, remastered versions and new songs. This final track list seems to confirm that. It’s difficult to tell whether certain tracks are actually new. Unless they were mentioned in the booklets, I don’t know if the remixers/DJs had been disclosed before SATB 5.

It’s really strange how uneven the track length distribution is. Many of the tracks get only a minute and change, yet others get a whopping 4 minutes.

Speed Anime Trance Complete Best comes in two flavors: limited and regular. Once again, both versions have the same track list, but the limited edition comes with a figure made by Duel Maid. The cover on the left is for the regular edition, while the cover on the right (with the French maid outfits) is for the limited edition.

Piano Dance 2Piano Dance 2
Release Date: 12/17/08
Price: 2400 yen

A second album already?! O_O The original Piano Dance came out earlier this summer and was a surprise hit on iTunes. Both Piano Dance releases feature piano house covers of popular tunes as well as original songs. You can hear samples of The Standard Club’s work on their MySpace page. Really outstanding stuff if you’re a fan of piano house.

Trance Rave Best XVII – Final Release Info

Trance Rave Best XVIITrance Rave Best XVII
Release Date: 12/24/08
Price: 1900 yen

Well, I called it. “Caramelldansen” infects yet another trance compilation. It was kinda funny at first, but now it’s just getting ridiculous. At least they refrained from using “Sousei no Aquarion,” though that’s probably because it already appeared on Trance Rave Best XVI.

Anyway, TRB 17 comprises mostly Quake Trance Best tracks of the last year, though in some cases they reached as far back as 2005. Also included are some tracks from Quake’s various Exit Trance series.

Release Date: 12/24/08 (CD+DVD) 1/21/09 (CD Only)
Price: 2848 yen (CD+DVD) or 1900 yen (CD Only)

Koakuma Magic is essentially Euro Panic! Best. There are tons of repeats from Victor’s old Euro Panic! series, though there are also a handful of new J-Euro tracks. Oh, and “Sousei no Aquarion” makes it 57th appearance on a dance compilation this year.

The CD+DVD version includes a DVD of Para Para routines.

Trance Rave Best XVII
Release Date: 12/24/08
Price: 1900 yen

Victor Japan’s semiannual trance compilation series continues with this unprecedented 17th release. Details are sparse at the moment, but expect the most popular tracks of 2008 to appear. If you haven’t been paying attention, that most likely means “Caramelldansen” will be included.

Koakuma Magic – Pre-release Info

Posted by DanceMaster on December 2, 2008

Koakuma Magic
Release Date: 12/24/08 (CD+DVD) 1/21/09 (CD Only)
Price: 2848 yen (CD+DVD) or 1900 yen (CD Only)

Okay, so technically I blogged about this before. However, a lot of the details about this release have changed. The release has been delayed from its original intended release date and is now titled Koakuma Magic instead of Koakuma Princess. This was originally going to be available only as a CD+DVD set, but it looks like Victor will be releasing a CD only version about a month after the CD+DVD set.

Scheduled to appear are Ichidai, Laurie, Little Barby, Mister Max, Love Boom, Blue Roses, Mark Farina. In other words, a plethora of eurobeat repeats. It’s really quite amazing that Victor are still reusing Euro Panic! material after 7 years.

Pre-order the CD+DVD version or the CD only version.
