The cover art is a little boring considering the subject matter, but maybe that’s a good thing?

Yup, it’s another Vocaloid compilation. It seems that this one will only have never-before-heard songs, however, unlike the previous compilations that just collected songs that were already on Nico Nico.

magic -Super Model Special- – Final Release Info

Posted by DanceMaster on November 23, 2009

magicmagic -Super Model Special-
Release Date: 11/25/09
Price: 1900 yen

Previously known as “Koakuma Magic #2.” I was expecting mostly euro with a bit of trance, but it seems to be evenly split down the middle. Shockingly, they didn’t take the cheap route and license existing covers for some of the songs, so there are a surprising amount of new songs.

Gal Mama Euro Best – Pre-release Info

Posted by DanceMaster on November 22, 2009

Gal Mama Euro Best
Release Date: 12/30/09
Price: 1900 yen

J-Euro fever continues as Victor becomes the latest label to jump on the bandwagon. A “Gal Mama” is apparently a young woman in her 20s who has a baby as a fashion accessory. Examples include Rumi Itabashi (cover model for Natasu Monogatari 2009 and Wa Euro Best 1 and 2), Tsubasa Masuwaka, and Momoeri. The CD is being billed as one that both parent and child can dance to. No track list yet, but I can’t imagine Rumi not being on it. Victor have licensed from Akiba Koubou again, so I’d expect AK tracks plus some repeats from Buchiage Parance and Speed Anime M@ster.

Pre-order at CDJapan.

Disco Around 50 – Pre-release Info

Posted by DanceMaster on November 20, 2009

Disco Around 50 Super Freak ~ Soul & Funk
Release Date: 1/27/10
Price: 2400 yen

Whoa, total déjà vu. The track list is very similar to EMI’s aborted Roppongi Disco Hits compilation, which was supposed to come out this past September. It appears that EMI, Sony, and Victor will be giving the series another try, rebranding it “Disco Around 50” instead of “Gotouchi Disco.” Sony and Victor haven’t announced their releases yet, but you can bet they’ll be out on the same day. Unless, of course, they cancel the series again.

Wa Euro Best 2 – Update

Posted by DanceMaster on November 19, 2009

SEB 200Wa Euro Best 2Wa Euro Best 2
Release Date: 12/16/09
Price: 1886 yen

The release of Wa Euro Best 2 is fast approaching and I’ll be promoting the heck out of it until then. 😉

Eurobeat fans in Japan will be interested to know that EMI and Avex will be collaborating on an event promoting both Wa Euro Best 2 and Super Eurobeat 200 on January 10, 2010. The last time the two companies worked together was to promote Natsu Monogatari 2008 and 9LoveJ Super Collection.

In more WEB 2 news, the producers for the tracks have been announced. valle blanco will be responsible for the most tracks, with almost half of the album (9 songs) being done by him. DJ Command comes in a distant second with 3 tracks. Rayto only gets 2 tracks. Meanwhile, 2bad, Honmax, and plum(!!!) get one each. With Honmax confirmed, it’s probably safe to say that “Para Holi” is the same song as the one from Natsu Monogatari 2007, except with Sunplaza Nakano Kun doing the vocals. There’s no way he can do worse than Rina Ayukawa.

Around 40 Eurobeat 2 – Pre-release Info

Posted by DanceMaster on November 19, 2009

Around 40 Eurobeat 2
Release Date: 1/27/10
Price: 2381 yen

January is certainly becoming the month of surprise sequels. Around 40 Eurobeat did reasonably well in sales, but it wasn’t exactly a huge hit. Disco R35 before it sold much, much better yet it never got a sequel. In any case, “eurobeat” seems to be a fashionable word again in Japan, so I guess EMI will milk it as much as possible.

Most of the announced tracks thus far should be familiar to fans of Dancemania Super Classics. The problem with 80s eurodance compilations is that by definition they have to be 100% repeats. 🙁

Included as a bonus track is Youni Oginome’s Japanese cover of “Dancing Hero,” better known to most fans as “Eat You Up.”
