Exit Trance presents Speed Anime Trance Best 21 – Update

Posted by DanceMaster on March 16, 2014

Exit Trance presents Speed Anime Trance Best 21
Release Date: 4/2/14
Price: 1905 yen

The first SATB release of 2014 is coming out in a few weeks, and the announcement that it’ll only have 15 tracks is like an admission that the series is on its last legs. Cutting the number of tracks is a frequent cost-saving measure when sales slow down. Dancemania went from ~25 down to 18, Super Eurobeat went from 18 to 15, and even the original Exit Trance series went from 48 to 24 to 20 before they stopped completely.

MK gets the most tracks with 4, with Dizzi Mystica not far behind with 3. Icon, plazma, and Hommarju get 2 each, while the remaining tracks are split between Flash back dominant and kinoto. Acid=Stone Valley, who only made his return to the series a couple of albums ago, makes no appearance here. The Exit Tunes website is still advertising the CD as a non-stop mix, though the edits are quite long given the number of tracks.

Bonus items include a strap, bath poster, and postcard. They can’t even afford the clear files anymore ;_;

Anison Euroid Mix ~Mahou Shoujo Hen~ – Pre-release Info

Posted by DanceMaster on March 13, 2014

Anison Euroid Mix ~Mahou Shoujo Hen~
Release Date: 4/25/14
Price: 1800 yen

The second entry in the Anison Euroid series, which pairs eurobeat anison covers with vocoder vocals. The first album was recently made available digitally worldwide, such as on Amazon MP3. It doesn’t sound like they used Vocaloid, though. I think they just took the existing vocals and tweaked them to sound like Vocaloid. I have no idea what the hell the point of that is.
