Back to Basics -EP-
Artist: Overhead Champion
Release Date: 5/21/14
Price: 600 yen

It’s been 5 years since his last release, but Overhead Champion is back with new trance tracks! When this was announced I was afraid it was going to be EDM, but it’s pure, unabashed J-Trance.

The EP appears to be available worldwide on a variety of services, including Amazon MP3, iTunes, Beatport, and others.

2014 is the 10-year anniversary of the J-Trance boom, when series like Mega Trance, Trance Paradise, and Super Best Trance all started (though the original Trance Rave actually came out in 2001). Keep an eye out later this year when I’ll do posts on older J-Trance releases that predated the start of this blog.

Maharaja presents Global Mix Vol. 2 -EDM Best Hits-
Release Date: 7/30/14
Price: 1852 yen

Huh, for some reason I thought the first one was just going to be a one-off release, but it looks like Avex will continue the Global Mix series this July. Volume 1 was an interesting mix of Saifam, Power Music, and Avex artists, so I’m assuming the sequel will be the same.

TV Dance
Release Date: 7/16/14
Price: 1852 yen

Upcoming dance compilation from Avex that’s being released to commemorate the 60th anniversary of Japanese TV broadcasting. It’s supposed to include dance arrangements of TV themes. No mention of who will be doing the arrangements, or even what genres will be included. I’m hoping we’ll get surprise trance or eurobeat remixes.

Dconstructed -EDM Meets Disney-
Release Date: 6/25/14
Price: 2800 yen

Well, this is a little weird. This third EDM Disney compilation, due in June, is mostly repeats from the first two CDs. I guess the success of Electronic Disney Music and the global EDM phenomenon prompted Disney to release an EDM compilation in the US. Dconstructed was released in the US in April, both in CD form as well as a digital download, but the Japanese version will apparently have two bonus tracks. I wonder if they’ll release Eurobeat Disney in the states now?

New songs not featured on the first two CDs include an Armin van Buuren remix of “Let It Go” and a Yogi remix of “Roar.”
