Fami Compi
Release Date: 10/26/11
Price: 1714 yen

House, techno, and electro covers of Famicom (NES) themes. Originally scheduled for release in June, it finally sees the light of day this October. Artimage has uploaded samples on SoundCloud. Tracks are produced by TeddyLoid, Hello Stupid People, and Hikari Koshi. Samples sound pretty good, and it’s nice to see that they avoided the usual themes.

Vocaloid Trance – Digital Downloads

Posted by DanceMaster on October 30, 2011

Vocaloid Trance
Release Date: 10/5/11
Price: 2400 yen

I spotted this on iTunes Japan and thought it was a new release, but it turns out it’s just the digital version of Vocalo*Trance Best. Only 7 of the tracks from the CD can be found on the digital release. 6 of those 7 also get exclusive extended remixes. Still, 2400 yen and it’s not even iTunes Plus? Come on, Avex, get with the program already!

Best Idol – Update

Posted by DanceMaster on October 28, 2011

Best Idol Non Stop Mixed by DJ Mocchi
Release Date: 11/16/11
Price: 1800 yen

Previously known as Idol Euro. I’m not sure why they changed the name; the old one was far more descriptive. Anyway, cover art and a seemingly final track list have been released. Half of the album is composed of repeats or resings, and many of the tracks from the early list didn’t make it. Worst of all, there’s no Shihori. 🙁 There are a number of new vocalists, though Tomomin gets the most tracks with a total of 4.

SQ Chips

Who knew that one of the year’s best dance albums would be a chiptune album from Square Enix? SQ Chips brings together some of Japan’s top talent to produce chiptune versions of classic themes from Squaresoft games. Artists like DJ OMKT, Sexy-Synthesizer and Another Infinity take on Chrono Trigger, Final Fantasy and Seiken Densetsu. It’s like reliving my childhood.

Ryu☆ – Rainbow☆Rainbow – Update

Posted by DanceMaster on October 25, 2011

Rainbow☆Rainbow
Artist: Ryu☆
Release Date: 10/5/11 11/2/11 12/7/11
Price: 1905 yen

Quake have revealed even more tracks on their official website. In addition to new tracks from Another Infinity and his Seiryuu alias, there’ll also be a new collaboration with MK. “Vertical” from DDR Universe 3 is oddly missing from this latest tracklist, however, and “Zutto Mitsumeteite” seems like a waste of a slot…

Bonus items include a cell phone strap, yupo suction tack, mouse pad, B2-size poster, fake credit card, and clear file. Some of these bonuses will be limited, with the last two only available if you return the included survey. I imagine Konami Style will also offer their own exclusive bonus items if you order through them.

Smile.dk – Moshi Moshi (Single) – Pre-release Info

Posted by DanceMaster on October 23, 2011

Moshi Moshi (Single)
Artist: Smile.dk
Release Date: 2011

It’s been a while since the last Smile.dk update. For those not following their Facebook account, Makeup Collection has been delayed due to Cecilia’s pregnancy (Congratulations!), but the duo have since announced that the first single off the album will be released soon on iTunes. Titled “Moshi Moshi,” it seems like it will be another Japan-themed song. Just, please, don’t let the word “butterfly” be in it.

Still no word on when the album will be released, but their record label has mentioned that in addition to remakes of their greatest hits there’ll also be 8 new songs. Looking forward to it!
