Super Best Trance presents X’mas Trance – EP – Digital Downloads

Posted by DanceMaster on July 28, 2013

Super Best Trance presents X’mas Trance – EP
Release Date: 7/24/13
Price: 450 yen

What better way to celebrate summer than with an X’mas Trance EP? This one mostly has songs that appeared on the Cyber Trance presents X’mas Trance series. For some reason it also has a cover of Blondie’s “Maria,” which is apparently a Christmas carol now?

Anyway, this is the last of the SBT EPs released on July 24th. It remains to be seen if Avex will keep this up and release more SBT EPs in the future.

Super Best Trance presents Summer Trance – EP
Release Date: 7/24/13
Price: 450 yen

What better way to celebrate summer than with a Summer Trance EP? And in typical Avex fashion, it has a repeat! That’s right, for no reason other than to screw people over, this has “Santa Maria (DJ Ten Remix),” even though the second EP already had it.

Super Best Trance II – EP
Release Date: 7/24/13
Price: 450 yen

Avex’s second digital SBT EP features songs from SBT IV, VII, VI, and 10. I definitely recommend the John Robinson and Delaction songs, but I’m not too fond of the DJ Ten remixes.

Super Best Trance I – EP – Digital Downloads

Super Best Trance I – EP
Release Date: 7/24/13
Price: 450 yen

HOLY CRAP! It’s been 4 years since the last Super Best Trance release, so it came as quite a shock when I saw a series of new SBT releases on iTunes. Each release has 5 tracks and costs 450 yen for the entire release, which is a steal compared to the prices the vinyls have been going for. The track lists are seemingly random, pulling tracks from various SBT releases over the years. This first one has tracks from SBT V, ZIP Dance Nation, SBT II, SBT presents X’mas Trance, and Ultra Z-Trance 03.

Ultra EDM #1 ⇨ Rave Mix 001
Release Date: 7/17/13 ⇨ 8/7/13
Price: 1905 yen

Is the Japanese EDM boom over already? Avex’s Ultra EDM #1 has been delayed to August and renamed to Rave Mix 001. It just seems odd that their shying away from the EDM term.

Ultra EDM #1 – Pre-release Info

Posted by DanceMaster on May 16, 2013

Ultra EDM #1
Release Date: 7/17/13
Price: 1905 yen

Gee, welcome to 2012, Avex. They’re a little late to the bandwagon, but Avex’s first non-Disney EDM compilation will be released this July. The title seems like it could be a throwback to their old Ultra Dance series. Featured artists include Armin van Buuren, Tiesto, Avicii, and others.

Electronic Disney Music – Pre-release Info

Posted by DanceMaster on May 15, 2013

Electronic Disney Music
Release Date: 6/19/13
Price: 2800 yen

This brings a whole new meaning to EDM. Sort of serves as a spiritual sequel to 2009’s House Disney. A shame they never did a Trance Disney while the trance boom was still in effect in Japan.

Visit the official website for more info. You can also grab the new remix of “A Whole New World” off iTunes Japan.

Cheeky Parade – Bunbun Nine9′ (Single) – Final Release Info

Posted by DanceMaster on May 10, 2013

Bunbun Nine9′ (Jacket B ver.) (CD Only) (Single)
Artist: Cheeky Parade
Release Date: 1/9/13
Price: 952 yen

A single released by the idol group, Cheeky Parade, earlier this year. Notable for the ZK (a.k.a. Ace Closer/Floorbreaker/etc.) remix of “Cheeky Dreamer,” which is available ONLY on the Jacket B, CD Only version. It’s an awesome trance remix with touches of hyper techno, and it’s amazing to see such a remix released in 2013. Again, it’s only available on the Jacket B version of the CD single; even the iTunes release doesn’t have it. -_-

Best Mix Loves… House Nation – Pre-release Info

Posted by DanceMaster on January 24, 2013

Best Mix Loves… House Nation
Release Date: 3/20/13
Price: 2190 yen

It’s been a while since the last House Nation release back in July of 2012, but the series will be back this March, though it’ll be as a collaboration with the Best Mix series. The Best Mix series generally features all genres, so I’m not sure why they felt the need to attach the House Nation brand. No tracks revealed yet, although the final list is expected to have 30 songs.

Pre-order at CDJapan.
