Kankore Eurobeat
Release Date: 1/19/14
Price: 1000 yen

You’ve probably heard of Touhou before, but there’s a new game in town that’s spawning tons of doujin releases. Kantai Collection, frequently shortened to “KanColle” or “KanKore,” was a browser game with a warship theme released in 2013. For some reason it features girls dressed as warships, because Japan.

Kankore Eurobeat comes from the circle, っ´Д`)っゼロ式の処刑場 (Shinzan Zeroshiki no Shokei Ba), and features eurobeat arrangements of KanColle themes. There’s a physical CD available, but it’s also up for purchase digitally at DLsite.

Price: 1429 yen

The third release in the Toho Speed series from Lila’c Records. Mostly speed trance and drum ‘n’ bass, but it sounds like there’s some Eurobeat in there as well, which makes sense since I see sumijun from Akiba Koubou listed in the credits. Released during Comiket 87.

Music for the Party People
Artist: Overhead Champion
Release Date: 1/14/15
Price: 1852 yen

Merry Christmas! What better present than the final track list for OHC’s new album, which he just posted on twitter along with the cover art. It’s as incredible as one would expect, with collaborations from trance legends like DJ Kaya, DJ Minagawa, DJ Yoshinori, Glutton Boyz and DJ Kenny! Many of the collaborations are new 2015 versions of classics like “Holylance,” “Jack Knife” and “Blue Force,” so it’ll be interesting to see how they’ve updated the sound. Also featured are some of his various singles over the past few years, including his last two singles with Avex, Blackout and Ready for Take Off. There are 19 tracks in all. Hopefully the album does well enough to reinvigorate the trance scene in Japan.
