Sick EDM Vol. 3 – Final Release Info

Posted by DanceMaster on February 13, 2015

Sick EDM Vol. 3 mixed by C’k
Release Date: 2/11/15
Price: 1852 yen
Total Length: 1:01:35

Wow, this was unexpected. Originally planned as Sick EDM Best, this release has morphed into a proper Sick EDM 03 instead. And while the first two albums were full of familiar tracks, this one actually has quite a few that have yet to appear on other Japanese compilations. It’s mostly composed of Spinnin’ Records licenses, but there’s also quite a bit of new material from Japanese artists, including a new collaboration between C’k and OHC. That said, they also decided to include “Booyah (Original Mix)” despite its appearance on Sick EDM 02 and pretty much every EDM album last year.

Upcoming tie-in compilation from Universal. The CD will be the official mix of Tokyo Girls Collection, a fashion festival that’s celebrating its 10th anniversary this year. Interestingly, Universal have set up a website for DJ Fumi*Yeah, who’s doing the mixing for this CD. Hopefully they’ll continue to collaborate in the future, as I really enjoy Fumi*Yeah’s mixing. It also looks like he squeezed every last bit of music he could onto the CD, as it’s over 81 minutes long. o_O
