What’s Up! The Best ~ 10th Anniversary
Release Date: 12/4/13 12/25/13
Price: 2838 yen

Ah, now we know why V.I.P didn’t come out in December like it usually does. It seems that Universal have reserved the month for the 10th anniversary release of their own long-running R&B/Hip-Hop/Dance compilation series, What’s Up! The anniversary release will be a 2-disc set. Disc 1 will focus on dance, including the latest EDM hits. Disc 2 will feature R&B/Hip-Hop from the past decade. Both discs will be non-stop mixes. The set will come in a 2-disc wide case, as well as a cardboard sleeve.

Apparently “Wanna See U Dance” uses the same melody as “Samba de Janeiro.” It’s like a requirement that it appears on every dance compilation.

The EDM ~Erotic Dance Mix~ mixed by DJ Rie
Release Date: 12/25/13
Price: 1900 yen

Another EDM compilation, this time from Victor Japan. I did a double-take when I first saw the title, thinking it was somehow related to E-Rotic, but no such luck. I’m not really sure why it’s an “erotic” dance mix, but it may have something to do with the fact that it’s being mixed by a female DJ, DJ Rie.

Blue Dragon
Artist: Seiryu
Release Date: 12/25/13
Price: 1905 yen

Santa’s bringing a special present this year for Ryu* fans. Back when Plan 8 was released I speculated that the relatively small number of tracks would mean they would release two Ryu* albums this year, and it ended up being true. Seiryu is the alias that Ryu* uses for 190+ BPM tracks, and Blue Dragon will focus on songs he’s released under the alias as well as his other dragon aliases. Like Plan 8, this album will contain 15 tracks, many of which have previously appeared on various Konami music games.

Bonus items include a cell phone strap, signed seal, pass case, poster, and clear file. The official site has samples and more info. There are also retailer-exclusive bonuses available, ranging from can badges to special remix CDs:

Animate
– Kouryu Special Remix CD – Blue Dragon (Kouryu Remix)

Tsutaya Records
– Rairyu Special Remix CD – Blue Dragon (Rairyu Remix)

Tora no Ana
– Hakuryu Special Remix CD – Blue Dragon (Hakuryu Remix)
