V.I.P. presents Party Covers – Final Release Info

Posted by DanceMaster on July 30, 2012

V.I.P. presents Party Covers
Release Date: 8/1/12
Price: 2171 yen

Dancemania lives!!! Oh, wait, wrong album. It’s easy to get confused since the track list for this CD is dominated by Saifam. After being excluded from recent Dancemania albums I was getting worried that EMI had cut ties with the Italian label, but Saifam are here in full force. Tracks by Che’Nelle, Roll Deep and Bentley Jones round out the list.

Dance Climax – Final Release Info

Posted by DanceMaster on July 26, 2012

Dance Climax
Release Date: 7/25/12
Price: 1886 yen

A new dance compilation series from Full Moon Records. It was originally titled, “Mega Dance Climax,” but the title has since changed. The track list is also vastly different from the early one. Whereas it was originally going to be a collection of mostly 90s eurodance hits, the final list also features quite a few 70s disco and 80s pop. It’s almost certain that they used cover versions for most of the tracks, but no retailers have any artists listed and AKBK haven’t added the CD to their website yet so who knows who provided the songs.

Love the old-school NOW-style cover.

Vocalo Cho Mix – Update

Posted by DanceMaster on July 25, 2012

Vocalo Cho Mix feat. Hatsune Miku
Release Date: 9/26/12
Price: 1714 yen

This is now being billed as the second entry in EMI’s Vocaloid series, so there’s a good chance it will indeed be considered part of the Dancemania series as Vocalo Dance was. As further proof, retailers are listing it as a 39-track non-stop party mix.

Bonus items include a cardboard sleeve and picture label CD. Buying from Animate will get you a special fan. No word on any other bonus items, but with such a relatively low price they make skimp on bonuses.
