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.

EDM Anthem – Best Mix – Pre-release Info

Posted by DanceMaster on March 10, 2015

EDM Anthem – Best Mix
Release Date: 5/20/15
Price: 2200 yen

Update: Early list is out. Thankfully, there are “new” tracks, or at least tracks that haven’t appeared on EDM Anthem before. 30 tracks are planned in all.

The good news is that EDM Anthem is still alive. The bad news is that the next release will be a best mix, even though I Love EDM -Hits & Anthems- already served as one. No early list yet, but hopefully they’ll sprinkle in a few new tracks.

Tokyo Girls Party -TGC 10th Anniversary Best Mega Mix- – Final Release Info

Posted by DanceMaster on February 27, 2015

Tokyo Girls Party -TGC 10th Anniversary Best Mega Mix- mixed by DJ Fumi*Yeah
Release Date: 2/18/15
Price: 2100 yen
Total Length: 1:21:21

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
