Super Best Trance Summer Drive – EP – Digital Downloads

Posted by DanceMaster on July 22, 2014

Super Best Trance Summer Drive – EP
Release Date: 7/23/14
Price: 500 yen

Welp, I think Avex are just straight up trolling now. It’s been a year since the first set of SBT EPs came and went, but it looks like they’re releasing at least one new SBT EP this year. First of all, it’s 50 yen more expensive than before. Second, the edits of most of the tracks are quite short, basically radio edit length. But to really rub salt in the wound, they chose mostly non-trance remixes. Three out of the five songs are basically hyper techno. It can’t be said enough: Fuck you, Avex.
