Nagashima*Jienotsu*Yuichirou -Anison DJ de Ottsu Otsu!- – Final Release Info

Posted by DanceMaster on April 30, 2012

Nagashima*Jienotsu*Yuichirou -Anison DJ de Ottsu Otsu!-
Release Date: 4/25/12
Price: 1905 yen

Compilation album featuring eurobeat covers of anime themes. Produced by Kickboxer, Yuichirou Nagashima, who is also known for his cosplay. In addition to the usual AKBK repeats, the CD will include his official theme song, which was released as a single a few years ago and is sung by Halko Momoi. Yuichirou himself will be a doing a cover of “Gekitei,” and from the samples it’s clear he’s why he’s an athlete and not a professional singer. There are also two new tracks by Kei and Satsy.

I believe the CD is mixed, but full versions appear to be available on iTunes Japan with the exception of the lead track.

Dancehall Lovers J-Covers – Final Release Info

Posted by DanceMaster on April 28, 2012

Dancehall Lovers J-Covers
Release Date: 4/25/12
Price: 2171 yen

New release in the long-running Dancehall compilation series. This one is notable for jumping on the J-Pop cover bandwagon. Yes, that’s right, if you’ve ever been jonesing for a reggae version of “Zankoku na Tenshi no These,” this is the album for you. To further increase the novelty, it also appears that all of the songs have been translated into English. They used Bentley Jones’s existing English version for “Sunao ni Naretara” but the rest sound like almost direct translations, which results in some awkward lyrics.

SQ Chips 2 – Pre-release Info

Posted by DanceMaster on April 26, 2012

SQ Chips 2
Release Date: 7/25/12
Price: 1800 yen

Who knew that one of last year’s best dance albums would be a chiptune album from Square Enix? Almost a year later, Square-Enix will release SQ Chips 2, once again bringing together some of Japan’s top talent to produce chiptune versions of classic themes from Squaresoft games. Artists like DJ OMKT, Sexy-Synthesizer, and Hige Driver take on even more Squaresoft classics, including themes from Xenogears, Chrono Cross and Live a Live. And although they aren’t explicitly mentioned on the early track list, the teaser website suggests it’ll also have songs from Final Fantasy VII and Final Fantasy XIII. No FF VI love this time? 🙁

Hatsune Rock – Pre-release Info

Posted by DanceMaster on April 25, 2012

Hatsune Rock feat. Hatsune Miku
Release Date: 6/6/12
Price: 2190 yen

EMI’s second venture into the world of Vocaloid compilations. Vocalo Dance didn’t do particularly well, so this time they’re going with a rock theme, similar to FARM’s Vocarock series (the existence of which is probably why EMI avoided naming this Vocalo Rock). I’m not sure if they’ll still market this as part of the Dancemania series, given Vocalo Dance’s performance. A lot of these tracks have appeared on previous compilations, so I hope they’re not making the same mistake of having nothing but repeats again.

All copies will come with a cardboard sleeve and picture-label CD. First-press editions come with a special big coaster and cell phone strap.

Posted by DanceMaster on April 24, 2012

Disko Warp presents Anime Love Hardcore 2
Artist: Initial P
Release Date: 4/10/12 ⇨ 4/24/12
Price: $9.90

Two years after the release of Anime Love Hardcore, Initial P finally gets off his lazy ass and brings us a sequel full of more hard-stomping happy hardcore covers of anime themes. Although Disko Warp have recently been experimenting with eurobeat and hyper techno, make no bones about it: this is a hardcore album made for hardcore fans.

Samples are available at the Disko Warp website as well as SoundCloud.

Thanks to the successful Kickstarter, you can order a physical copy of the album from Big Cartel. The album will also be available digitally as an iTunes exclusive. Sorry, non-US fans, both the CD and digital version won’t be available internationally due to licensing restrictions.

Full review and samples after the jump.
