No.1 Party Mix -Ultra Hits R&B- – Pre-release Info

Posted by DanceMaster on April 12, 2015

No.1 Party Mix -Ultra Hits R&B- mixed by Satoshi Hoshino
Release Date: 5/13/15
Price: 1850 yen

New entry in Star Music’s No.1 Part Mix series, which hasn’t seen a release since 2013. The first release was composed of Power Music licenses and included a few remixes by Japanese artists like ET-Q, DJ Satoshi and U*Hey?. And then they repeated those remixes endlessly for two years. It’s probably not a good sign that the early list has songs from previous entries in the series. Also interesting that DJ Satoshi is going by his full name now.

Best of 2015 -1st Half- – Pre-release Info

Posted by DanceMaster on April 6, 2015

Best of 2015 -1st Half- mixed by DJ Ryu-1
Release Date: 5/20/15
Price: 1680 yen

FARM didn’t release a single CD in April, so I was beginning to worry that they were switching to all-digital releases. Thankfully they have a couple of CDs announced for May and June, so it looks like my worries were unfounded, at least for now. Their May release will be the third album in the “Best of 20XX” series mixed by DJ Ryu-1. Usually the series has house covers of top 40 songs, arranged by FARM’s in-house composers.
