Rave Mix 02 -Best Hit EDM-
Release Date: 6/24/15
Price: 1200 yen

Two months after the revival of the Rave Mix series, Avex went on to release another digital non-stop mix by Remo-con. Unfortunately the series went back into hibernation after the second release, and it doesn’t look like Avex have any plans to revisit again anytime soon.

Rave Mix 01 -Best Hit EDM-
Release Date: 4/29/15
Price: 1200 yen

Avex’s Rave Mix 001 came out in August of 2013, but despite the numbering it seemed destined to be a one-off release. Enter 2015, when Avex randomly decided to revisit the series, this time with a digital non-stop mix mixed by the one and only Remo-con.

Chou Fami Compi
Release Date: 1/28/15
Price: 2000 yen

Sequel to 2011’s Fami Compi and 2012’s Zoku Fami Compi. Yup, it’ll be three years since the last release. The series features dance arrangements of popular Famicom tracks. The track list has some songs from previous releases. It’s unclear of those will be new arrangements, or if this is some sort of best-of release with a few new tracks.

Also, for some reason there’s a Makuake (Japanese equivalent of Kickstarter) campaign going on for the album. Presumably the album will come out no matter what, but if you contribute then you’ll get extras likes pins, stickers, or release party tickets.

Sequel to 2011’s Fami Compi and 2012’s Zoku Fami Compi. Yup, it’ll be three years since the last release. The series features dance arrangements of popular Famicom tracks. So far the early track list has some songs from previous releases. It’s unclear of those will be new arrangements, or if this is some sort of best-of release with a few new tracks.

Best Mix ~Cheval Edition~ EDM & All Mix Party mixed by *Groovy workshop.
Release Date: 9/24/14
Price: 2200 yen

The latest release in Avex’s ongoing Best Mix series. Features 25 songs, including random licenses from Power Music and FARM Records. That’s right, they used FARM’s cover of “Let It Go” despite the fact that Avex distribute Disney’s music in Japan. I should also add that the whole thing comes in at a little above 50 minutes. 2200 yen for 50 minutes… Mixed by *Groovy workshop.

Price: 2500 yen

New CD+DVD set from Avex featuring songs that are popular in host clubs. Unfortunately, no eurobeat or trance in sight, so I’m gonna be lazy and just copy and paste the track list from the official website.

Release Date: 7/30/14
Price: 2407 yen

Super Best Trance Summer Drive – EP
Release Date: 7/23/14
Price: 500 yen

Welp, I think Avex are just straight up trolling now. It’s been a year since the first set of SBT EPs came and went, but it looks like they’re releasing at least one new SBT EP this year. First of all, it’s 50 yen more expensive than before. Second, the edits of most of the tracks are quite short, basically radio edit length. But to really rub salt in the wound, they chose mostly non-trance remixes. Three out of the five songs are basically hyper techno. It can’t be said enough: Fuck you, Avex.

New CD+DVD set from Avex featuring songs that are popular in host clubs. Usually this means lots of J-Pop, but in the past eurobeat and trance have made appearances.

Maharaja presents Global Mix Vol. 2 -EDM Best Hits-
Release Date: 7/30/14
Price: 1852 yen

Huh, for some reason I thought the first one was just going to be a one-off release, but it looks like Avex will continue the Global Mix series this July. Volume 1 was an interesting mix of Saifam, Power Music, and Avex artists, so I’m assuming the sequel will be the same.
