I Love Party Pop ~ Be Happy! – Pre-release Info

Posted by DanceMaster on August 27, 2014

I Love Party Pop ~ Be Happy!
Release Date: 10/29/14
Price: 1850 yen

Update (8/27/14): The release has mysteriously disappeared from most retailers, so it may be canceled or just delayed.

Ayup, Universal are definitely trying to build up their “I Love” brand. As opposed to the main series, the “I Love Party Pop” albums focus a bit more on general pop and less on dance. Featured artists include Ariana Grande, The Vamps, Carly Rae Jepsen and *shudder* Justin Bieber. Fun fact: “Beauty and a Beat” has somehow been on all three releases in the I Love Party series thus far.

I Love EDM -Hits & Anthems- – Pre-release Info

Posted by DanceMaster on August 26, 2014

I Love EDM -Hits & Anthems-
Release Date: 10/8/14
Price: 1850 yen

New dance compilation from Universal. EDM Anthem IV really should’ve been announced by now, so I think this may be its substitute. The title sort of coincides with Universal’s I Love Party series, which makes me think it’ll be part of some larger “I Love” series. Of course, since this will technically be a new release I wouldn’t be surprised if they use it as an excuse to feature repeats from EDM Anthem.

The release is also being touted as an unofficial tie-in to the Ultra Music Festival Japan, er, festival. Sony Music Japan are releasing the official compilation, but that’s not stopping all of the other labels from trying to cash in.

Pre-order at CDJapan.

Pete Ellison – Pete Beat Manifesto EP – Digital Downloads

Pete Beat Manifesto EP
Artist: Pete Ellison
Release Date: 7/30/2014
Price: FREE!

It’s been over a year since Disko Warp closed up shop, but founder Pete Ellison has still been releasing music under his main persona. The latest release from Pete is a free EP that’s available on the Tokyo-based label, Data Fruits. It’s definitely a slower, groovier sound than his previous Disko Warp fare.

Sick EDM 02 mixed by C’k
Release Date: 10/1/14
Price: 1852 yen

New EDM release from Dreamusic and the second in the Sick EDM series. Mixed by C’k, who some may remember was a member of the J-Pop group, Shanadoo. I’m more than a little concerned that some of the tracks were already on the first Sick EDM, but maybe they’ll use remixes?
