Exit Trance presents Speed Anime Trance Best 19 – Pre-release Info

Posted by DanceMaster on June 14, 2013

Exit Trance presents Speed Anime Trance Best 19
Release Date: 9/4/13
Price: 1905 yen

The 19th entry in the SATB series will be released in early September, so we’ll definitely be getting 3 releases this year instead of the 2 in 2012. No word on a track list yet. Interestingly, if you look at the catalogue number, QWCE-342, you might notice that it’s a pretty big jump over the next-highest allocated cataloque number, QWCE-309 (for 164’s upcoming album). That means they have at least 30+ other releases already planned. o_O Of course, they’ll probably all be Vocaloid albums anyway.

EDM ~Electronic Dance Madness~ 4 – Update

Posted by DanceMaster on June 9, 2013

EDM ~Electronic Dance Madness~ 4
Release Date: 6/5/136/26/13 ⇨ Release Cancelled
Price: 2190 yen

Bad news for EDM fans. It seems that EDM 4 has been cancelled for the time being. I hope this isn’t a result of Universal meddling. -_-

Update! DJ Tomo mentioned on his Twitter that the EMI/Universal merger was indeed responsible. Parlophone, formerly part of EMI and home to David Guetta and Coldplay (basically half of EDM), was sold off to Warner as part of the merger, so DJ Tomo was no longer able to use their songs freely. I wonder if he was in the middle of mixing the CD when the sale was finalized, and he wouldn’t have been able to do an entirely new list in such little time?

He goes on to apologize to anyone who was looking forward to EDM 4. He does say that he’s considering a new project, which may be released in August. There’s no mention if the EDM series will continue in the future.

Unfortunately, this has bad implications for Dancemania as well. EMI subsidiaries in European countries like Denmark and Sweden were also sold off to Warner, so say good-bye to the likes of Me & My and Smile.dk 🙁

Akiba Koubou presents Utatte Mita Collection – Pre-release Info

Posted by DanceMaster on June 8, 2013

Akiba Koubou presents Utatte Mita Collection
Release Date: 7/24/13
Price: 952 yen

This is interesting. A majority of the Akiba Koubou presents Utatte Mita Collection singles that have been released over the past two years will finally see a wide release this July. The series includes singles from popular utaite like Kouhey, Yamadan, Hanatan, and many, many more. There are 15 singles in all, so collecting them all will cost upwards of 15000 yen, ouch. I wish they were a little cheaper, especially since they only have 4 songs each. Maybe they’ll at least release them digitally. A full list of available singles after the jump.

Update! (6/10/13): Additional titles have been added. Basically, all releases in the Utatte Mita Collection series will be available at major retailers.

Kaiun Densetsu 777 ~Hyper Bonus~ – Pre-release Info

Posted by DanceMaster on June 7, 2013

Kaiun Densetsu 777 ~Hyper Bonus~
Release Date: 8/7/13
Price: 1800 yen

This Pachislot-themed CD features Eurobeat covers of popular anime themes. In other words, it’s yet another excuse for Akiba Koubou to showcase the same old repeats. The early list reads suspiciously like a lost entry from Tokuma Japan’s Geki Atsu! J-Euro series.
