Saifam Speed – April/May 2013

Posted by DanceMaster on May 31, 2013

Saifam Speed – April/May 2013
Artist: Various Artists

Whoa, Saifam have been oddly prolific over the last two months, with a whopping 7 Speed tracks produced in April and May. Still no rhyme or reason to their song selection, however, with the latest batch ranging from “Heat Is On” (previously covered by CJ Crew) to “Children” by Robert Miles.

SPE215 – [4:11] Hall of Fame / Speedmaster
SPE216 – [4:49] Heat Is On (The Factory Speedo mix) / Speedogang
SPE217 – [3:45] Your Mama Don’t Dance (Speedo version) / Speedogang
SPE218 – [4:06] Mama Do the Hump (The Factory Speedo mix) / Speedmaster
SPE219 – [5:22] Battle Scars (Speedo remix) / Speedmaster
SPE220 – [4:01] One Way or Another / Speedmaster
SPE221 – [3:56] Madness (Factory Team Speed remix) / Speedmaster

Kaji ga 100-bai Hakadoru High Tension Song Best – Final Release Info

Posted by DanceMaster on May 30, 2013

Kaji ga 100-bai Hakadoru High Tension Song Best (Top 20 Cheer Up Songs (House Keeping Edition))
Release Date: 5/29/13
Price: 1905 yen

This was originally intended as a digital release only, but good sales apparently convinced EMI/Universal to release a physical version. The CD contains 20 tracks instead of the digital EP’s 16, and also swaps out some of the EMI tracks for more Universal songs. The lack of Smile.dk and Me & My on the CD version is a bit troubling, and could signal that EMI Japan no longer have the rights to their back catalogues.

Enka Speed – Final Release Info

Posted by DanceMaster on May 29, 2013

Enka Speed
Release Date: 5/29/13
Price: 1905 yen

The album is out, and samples are now up on CDJapan. I’m starting to think that no one at Akiba Koubou knows what “Speed” means. As with the disappointingly slow Utattemita Speed albums, Enka Speed never reaches the highs of a traditional Dancemania Speed album, appearing to peak at only 160 BPM. They would’ve been better off calling this Utattemita Enka instead of linking it to the Dancemania Speed series. -_-

Geki Atsu! Pachi Best – Final Release Info

Posted by DanceMaster on May 25, 2013

Geki Atsu! Pachi Best
Release Date: 1/25/12
Price: 2000 yen

I mentioned this release early last year, but apparently its release was extremely limited, mostly at pachinko halls. I only recently finally confirmed the track list. It’s a best-of compilation featuring the best tracks from the Geki Atsu! J-Euro series. Definitely a rare item to look out for if you’re a collector of AKBK releases.
