Gaga in the House – Pre-release Info

Posted by DanceMaster on March 14, 2011

Gaga in the House
Release Date: 6/1/11
Price: 1429 yen

New CD from FARM compiling house covers of Lady Gaga songs. I’m just guessing here, but the price suggests that there won’t be many tracks, though those included will likely be full versions. “Born This Way” and “Alejandro” are virtually guaranteed, as are older productions like “Just Dance” and “Poker Face.”

Edit: Early track list has been released, and it’s mostly new productions by artists from the House Flavor R&B series. It would’ve been nice if the had included the Mega Trance 11 tracks. :/

Kiwami Euro Best – Final Release Info

Posted by DanceMaster on March 3, 2011

Kiwami Euro Best
Release Date: 3/2/11
Price: 1900 yen

Avex’s description for the CD seems to confirm that the “Wa Euro Best” series has effectively been transferred to them. It’s odd that EMI would give up on WEB since the Tokumori releases actually sold decently. I think Avex acquired the series too late, however, as sales for this compilation have so far been flat.

The final track list is a tad better than the early list, but it’s still laden with copious amounts of repeats. Mini-review after the jump.
