Posted by DanceMaster on February 26, 2011

Exp. (Experience) (Single)
Artist: Mayumi Morinaga
Release Date: 4/29/11
Price: 952 yen

New single from Mayumi Morinaga. Details are sparse at the moment, but I wonder if it’ll include her cover of “No Challenge, No Success,” which still hasn’t been featured on any Exit Trance compilations. Check out the MK remix below, and the Hommarju remix after the jump. I gotta say, her English sounds much improved.

Super Vocalo Beat – Update

Posted by DanceMaster on February 23, 2011

Super Vocalo Beat
Release Date: ???
Price: 2405 yen

Well, this is a bit odd. The final track list recently surfaced on the label’s official website, but it’s mysteriously disappeared. Listings on online shops have been pulled as well. Maybe they’re running into licensing issues? Let’s hope this release eventually sees the light of day, because it’d be really nice to hear new productions from Akiba Koubou for a change.

Ora Ora Psy Trance
Release Date: 2/2/11
Price: 1900 yen

Originally known as Ora Ora Psyche Best. Although there are a few new tracks, it’s mostly the same old songs that have been appearing on Psychedelic Rave and Trance Rave Best over the last few years. I swear Victor are the absolute worst when it comes to repeats. 🙁

Trance Rave Best XXI “World Greatest Hits” ~Super Best Coverz~ – Pre-release Info

Posted by DanceMaster on February 20, 2011

Trance Rave Best XXI “World Greatest Hits” ~Super Best Coverz~
Release Date: 4/6/11
Price: 1900 yen

Victor seems intent on resurrecting a lot of their series lately, as the last Trance Rave Best came out almost 9 months ago with the release of Trance Rave Best 20. I kind of assumed they ended it since 20 would’ve been a nice number to go out on, but TRB is back with a collection of covers. Unfortunately, most of these covers are quite old and definitely overplayed.

Speed Anime M@ster ~Super Euro Best~
Release Date: 3/23/11
Price: 1900 yen

Victor are reviving the Speed Anime M@ster series, even though it’s been almost two years since the first release. This time Akiba Koubou will be producing the entire album, which can only mean one thing: REPEATS! Yes, there are a handful of resings, but for the most part it’s the same old songs AKBK. Was anyone really clamoring for Haruka’s version of “Sousei no Aquarion” yet again?
