Maharaja ’80s Disco -30th Anniversary- – Pre-release Info

Posted by DanceMaster on October 13, 2014

Maharaja ’80s Disco -30th Anniversary-
Release Date: 11/5/14
Price: 2315 yen

Well, this is a surprise. Just when I thought FARM were moving towards EDM only, they announce a tie-up compilation with Maharaja. What makes this especially odd is that Maharaja releases were usually Avex’s domain. Anyway, there are 26 songs planned, and apparently they’ll only be using the original versions (i.e., no covers).

Drive ga 100-bai Tanoshiku Naru 90s Best Deluxe – Digital Downloads

Posted by DanceMaster on August 5, 2014

Drive ga 100-bai Tanoshiku Naru 90s Best Deluxe (Driving 90s Best Deluxe)
Release Date: 7/16/14
Price: 1000 yen

Updated version of Driving 90s Best, now with more Universal. Available on iTunes Japan.

Previously this had artists like Me & My, Smile.dk, and Cut ‘n’ Move, but their absence here further confirms that EMI Japan no longer have the rights to them. At this rate I wonder if they’ll even bother releasing a 20th anniversary Dancemania album. 🙁

Let’s Dance -Super 80s Disco Hits- – Final Release Info

Posted by DanceMaster on March 28, 2012

Let’s Dance -Super 80s Disco Hits-
Release Date: 12/7/1112/21/111/18/122/8/12 ⇨ 3/28/12
Price: 2857 yen

2-disc compilation from EMI celebrating Roppongi disco hits. As with Mogra Mix, this was originally supposed to come out in December, but EMI has postponed the release date a few times before settling on a March 28 release date. Thankfully, they mostly avoided songs that already appeared on Dancemania Sparkle Classics. And unlike Dancemania Sparkle Classics, this release is not a non-stop mix. Instead, it has full-length songs.

The early list didn’t have David Bowie’s “Let’s Dance,” but thankfully the final track list has it as the lead track. 😀

Songs selected by DJ Osshy of Roppongi Nirvana.

2-disc compilation from EMI celebrating Roppongi disco hits. As with Mogra Mix, this was originally supposed to come out in December, but EMI has postponed the release date a few times before settling on a March 28 release date. The delay was probably for the best, or else it would’ve been in direct competition with the similarly themed Dancemania Sparkle Classics. Songs selected by DJ Osshy of Roppongi Nirvana.
