Maharaja ’80s Disco -30th Anniversary- – Pre-release Info

Posted by DanceMaster on October 13, 2014

Maharaja ’80s Disco -30th Anniversary-
Release Date: 11/5/14
Price: 2315 yen

Well, this is a surprise. Just when I thought FARM were moving towards EDM only, they announce a tie-up compilation with Maharaja. What makes this especially odd is that Maharaja releases were usually Avex’s domain. Anyway, there are 26 songs planned, and apparently they’ll only be using the original versions (i.e., no covers).

Sound Drive -Driving Sound Art-
Artist: N.O.-SYO
Release Date: 9/15/14
Price: 2000 yen

New DVD from N.O.-SYO featuring pictures and videos of cars with his music playing in the background. It appears that it will only be available for sale on his website. The DVD comes with your choice of 1 of 4 stickers, or you can pay 340 yen more for all 4 stickers. The preview video kind of creeps me out. It’s like the soundtrack to a horror movie.

Urban Night Lounge presents Sunset Driving – Final Release Info

Posted by DanceMaster on October 4, 2014

Urban Night Lounge presents Sunset Driving performed by The Illuminati
Release Date: 9/3/14
Price: 926 yen

More piano house covers from Star Music Entertainment and The Illumaniti (DJ U*Hey?). Apparently this is a special CD available only at Village Vanguard stores. It’s 10 songs for 1,000 yen, though by the commercial you’d think it only had “Let It Go.” I have to admit it’s a very good cover, though.

Exit Trance presents Speed Anime Trance Best 22 – Final Release Info

Posted by DanceMaster on October 3, 2014

Exit Trance presents Speed Anime Trance Best 22
Release Date: 10/1/14
Price: 2000 yen

Final list and cover art are out for the 22nd release in the SATB series. Only 17 tracks, but I guess that’s better than the pathetic 15 that SATB 21 had. Plus, at least they’re using up the whole CD this time. The total length of the album is a little under 80 minutes.

It’s a pretty balanced album, as Hommarju, Booing Day, Dizzi Mystica and plazma get 3 tracks each. MK gets 2, while Flash back dominant gets a single track. One of the big surprises here is the return of the Mars alias, last seen only on SATB 14. Also surprising is the return of Ryu*, who hasn’t been on an SATB album since SATB 15. Icon gets left out completely for the first time since SATB 11.
