Price: 2284 yen

A new series from Dreamusic and Akiba Koubou featuring eurobeat covers of J-Pop songs. A few of these tracks have previously been covered by Akiba Koubou, but for the most part it appears that we’ll be getting fresh material. Ouendan fan that I am, “Linda Linda” excites me the most.

Super J-Euro Best Mix ~Hyper Tune~ – Update

Posted by DanceMaster on September 28, 2010

Super J-Euro Best Mix ~Hyper Tune~
Release Date: 10/20/10
Price: 2000 yen

Previously known as Super J-Euro Best Mix -Hyper-, the sequel to the original Super J-Euro Best Mix now has ~Hyper Tune~ as a subtitle. Avex have also unveiled the cover art, which is dramatically different from the original’s.

The final(?) track list is composed of 16 tracks. Either the first 15 tracks will be a non-stop mix, or there’ll be no bonus mega-mix this time around. I’m also assuming that track 16 will be a bonus track and will likely be the “Love Mix” of “Aitakunakute Aitakute.”

Ryu* – Ageha – Update

Posted by DanceMaster on September 27, 2010

AgehaAgeha
Artist: Ryu*
Release Date: 11/3/10
Price: 1905 yen

Update! Just noticed that the Exit Tunes newsletter had an updated track list, so I’ve added it here. To be honest, I’m a bit disappointed that they’re just repeating his tracks from previous Exit Trance releases. I was expecting mostly new tracks, or at least the songs from his Comiket-exclusive singles.

The album has been delayed from its original October 6 release date to November 3. In the meantime, Ryu*’s official website has been updated with a new podcast giving details on his forthcoming album: http://djryu.jp/

Quake have also released album artwork, plus pictures of the bonus items that will come with the CD: a cell phone strap and a fake credit card.

In addition, Konami will be offering special goods sets on their Konami Style website with Ryu*-branded merchandise. For 4,725 yen you can get the Goods Set A, which comes with the CD, strap, fake credit card, T-shirt, and sticker. The Goods Set B will set you back 7,245 yen and comes with everything that Goods Set A has plus a pin, wristband, tote bag, and rubber key cover.

Geki Love J-Euro ~J-Pop Covers Best~ – Pre-release Info

Posted by DanceMaster on September 20, 2010

Geki Love J-Euro ~J-Pop Covers Best~
Release Date: 11/3/10
Price: 1900 yen

FARM’s last true eurobeat compilation, Ai Love J-Euro, came out way back in December of last year and was unfortunately loaded with repeats. Here’s hoping FARM’s latest attempt to jump on the Wa Euro bandwagon yields better, more original results. The 16 tracks (out of 20) revealed so far look promising, as they’ve yet to appear on FARM compilations before. Neither have Akiba Koubou produced many of them, so even if it’s AKBK producing we should be treated to new tracks.

The album will be non-stop mixed by the one and only DJ Boss.

Kouhei – Fire Spirit – Final Release Info

Posted by DanceMaster on September 16, 2010

Fire Spirit
Artist: Kouhei
Release Date: 9/22/10
Price: 1905 yen

At what point does an utatte mita singer become a professional? If it’s when they release a CD with a major label, then Kouhei has officially hit the big leagues. Kouhei is perhaps best known for, well, his screaming. Witness his screaming in “Megu Megu*Fire Endless Night,” a fast-paced Eurobeat song originally made by samfree:
