Utattemita J-Pop – Update

Posted by DanceMaster on February 29, 2012

Utattemita J-Pop
Release Date: 3/7/12 ⇨ 3/21/12
Price: 1905 yen

Utaite take on J-Pop classics. The track list is mostly composed of songs taken from J-Pop Extra Beat Densetsu and the first two Geki Atsu! Drama Euro releases. I’m still hopeful that these will be new house/trance/euro arrangements, but I’m prepared for the worst. 🙁 Oh well, at least it can finally be confirmed that BB Storm = Bibi, KoRo-Girl = Korosuke, and Koko on Boku = Boku, though in hindsight I feel like an idiot since those should have been really, really obvious.

Utattemita Anison – Update

Posted by DanceMaster on February 28, 2012

Utattemita Anison
Release Date: 3/7/12 ⇨ 3/21/12
Price: 1905 yen

Delayed a few weeks, but cover art and final list have been revealed. The good news is that they somehow managed to forget to put “Zankoku” and “Sousei” on this. The bad news is that most of these songs have been done by Akiba Koubou before. The good news is that the description for the album mentions house, techno and trance arrangements, so there’s a good chance that we’ll at least get some new arrangements. The bad news is that Akiba Koubou are very lazy, and there’s just as a good a chance that they’ll use the songs straight from Anim80s and other albums.

For those wondering, “Nazo no Jinbutsu K” is better known to Hime Trance fans as Kei. It’s just the pseudonym she uses for singing on Nico Nico.

Posted by DanceMaster on February 27, 2012

Let’s Dance -Super 80s Disco Hits-
Release Date: 12/7/11 ⇨ 12/21/11 ⇨ 1/18/12 ⇨ 2/8/12 ⇨ 3/28/12
Price: 2857 yen

2-disc compilation from EMI celebrating Roppongi disco hits. As with Mogra Mix, this was originally supposed to come out in December, but EMI has postponed the release date a few times before settling on a March 28 release date. The delay was probably for the best, or else it would’ve been in direct competition with the similarly themed Dancemania Sparkle Classics. Songs selected by DJ Osshy of Roppongi Nirvana.

Luv Euro 2

Price: 1886 yen

The album is out today, physically on CD as well as digitally on iTunes Japan, where you can listen to samples. Damn, “Mister” and “Run ‘n’ Gun” sound sooooo good. It’s just a shame there are so many repeats, and even more unfortunate that the iTunes version is a non-stop mix just like the CD.

Utatte Mita Best Selection – Update

Utatte Mita Best Selection
Release Date: 3/7/12
Price: 1905 yen

Wow, this album is going to be pretty insane. Many of the songs have already been done by AKBK, but will have newly recorded vocals. Every song has multiple vocalists, and “Team Minna” can only mean that ALL of the utaite will be singing on a song. Really makes me wish I could attend Akiba Koubou Festa so I could hear these live.
