Best Hit Disco – Playback 90s
Release Date: 4/30/14
Price: 700 yen

Well, now I’m glad that I procrastinated on buying a Recochoku card for Dance! Dance!! Dance!!! Star Music just released a new iTunes album featuring full versions of the 90s covers that Threemason and Delaction did for the Dance! Dance!! Dance!!! album. It’s 20 songs total for 700 yen, and includes covers of Dancemania favorites like “Dub-I-Dub,” “Hero,” “Butterfly,” and other 90s dance hits. I’m still holding out hope for full versions from Meganimation.

Speaking of Star Music, it seems that they’ve been running a monthly trance party at T2 Shibuya recently called “Ultra Trance.” Recent guest DJs have included J-Trance legends like DJ Kaya, Remo-con, and DJ U*Hey? I’m hopeful that they’ll release an Ultra Trance digital compilation in the future.
