Sound Drive -Drift Luxy V.I.P.-
Artist: N.O.-SYO
Release Date: 12/19/12
Price: 2095 yen

The latest album from N.O.-SYO. In addition to new tracks, there are also repeats from some of the EPs he’s released since the first Sound Drive, as well as remixes from songs from Sound Drive and previous albums.

N.O.-SYO has set up an official website with info on all of his albums. He’s offering an exclusive set featuring both Dance Rock Mix and Drift Luxy VIP, plus signed booklets and a guitar pick, all for only 3500 yen.

I contacted CDJapan to see if they would be carrying it, but they replied, “Unfortunately, it won’t be possible for us to get it supplied. The label is selling it independently, and none of the record company we have dealings with will be able to get it supplied, either.” Bummer. Thankfully, HMV Japan and Amazon Japan do have it up for pre-order, and both ship overseas.

Handz Up Posse 2 mixed by DJ Uto
Release Date: 12/19/12
Price: 1905 yen

Oh, very interesting. Whereas Quake Trance Best 23 featured hard dance tracks from all across Europe, Handz Up Posse is primarily composed of UK productions. In fact, aside from the Starving Trancer bonus track, I believe all of the tracks are licensed from Andy Whitby’s AWsum label and Synergy Trax. Good to know DJ Uto still has his eye on the UK scene. Seeing Gammer on this makes me miss Dancemania Speed, though. 🙁
