Sick EDM Vol. 3 – Final Release Info

Posted by DanceMaster on February 13, 2015

Sick EDM Vol. 3 mixed by C’k
Release Date: 2/11/15
Price: 1852 yen
Total Length: 1:01:35

Wow, this was unexpected. Originally planned as Sick EDM Best, this release has morphed into a proper Sick EDM 03 instead. And while the first two albums were full of familiar tracks, this one actually has quite a few that have yet to appear on other Japanese compilations. It’s mostly composed of Spinnin’ Records licenses, but there’s also quite a bit of new material from Japanese artists, including a new collaboration between C’k and OHC. That said, they also decided to include “Booyah (Original Mix)” despite its appearance on Sick EDM 02 and pretty much every EDM album last year.

Overhead Champion – Music for the Party People – Update

Posted by DanceMaster on December 25, 2014

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.

Sick EDM Best – Pre-release Info

Posted by DanceMaster on December 12, 2014

Sick EDM Best mixed by C’k
Release Date: 2/11/15
Price: 1852 yen

A best-of release after only two albums? Sigh. Still, the series is one of the few remaining that showcases Japanese artists, so I imagine there’s a good chance that some of OHC’s new tracks will appear.

Overhead Champion – Back to Basics – Pre-release Info

Posted by DanceMaster on October 27, 2014

Back to Basics
Artist: Overhead Champion
Release Date: 1/14/15
Price: 1852 yen

Update (11/13/14): I got a mention on OHC’s twitter o_O Apparently the collaboration info is incorrect, so the label was probably just talking about his previous collaborations. Also, in another tweet it’s mentioned that there are 20 songs planned.

Sick EDM 02 – Final Release Info

Posted by DanceMaster on September 30, 2014

Sick EDM 02 mixed by C’k
Release Date: 10/1/14
Price: 1852 yen

New EDM release from Dreamusic and the second in the Sick EDM series. Mixed by C’k, who some may remember was a member of the J-Pop group, Shanadoo. Quite a few licenses from Spinnin’ Records, and there are even two songs that already appeared on the first Sick EDM. The last third of the album does feature original Japanese-produced EDM, however, including a collaboration between C’k and Overhead Champion.

Sick EDM 02 – Pre-release Info

Posted by DanceMaster on August 19, 2014

Sick EDM 02 mixed by C’k
Release Date: 10/1/14
Price: 1852 yen

New EDM release from Dreamusic and the second in the Sick EDM series. Mixed by C’k, who some may remember was a member of the J-Pop group, Shanadoo. I’m more than a little concerned that some of the tracks were already on the first Sick EDM, but maybe they’ll use remixes?

Anime Euro Best ~Complete Edition~ – Final Release Info

Posted by DanceMaster on February 10, 2011

Anime Euro Best ~Complete Edition~
Release Date: 2/23/11
Price: 1905 yen

Aww, they changed the title slightly from the redundant Anime Euro Best ~Best Edition~. Ehh, still the same crap track list. Dreamusic have decided to reward their fans with a one disc compilation of repeats from the three AEB releases. They couldn’t at least make it two discs and include full versions? To make matters worse, there are no new songs or even resings at all. And how dare they release a best-of compilation without including “Gekitei”!

Kouryaku Gundan presents J-Euro Buchi Kamashi Slo Pachi Best – Final Release Info

Posted by DanceMaster on February 9, 2011

Kouryaku Gundan presents J-Euro Buchi Kamashi Slo Pachi Best
Release Date: 2/23/11
Price: 1905 yen

Formerly known as J-Euro Pachinko Big Hits 20 Ren Chan. It’s a blatant ripoff of Tokuma Japan’s popular Geki Atsu! J-Euro series, which focuses on Pachinko/Pachislot themes. Sousei? Check. Zankoku? Check. There are a few new songs on the album, however, which I’ve bolded below. One of them is an original song by DJ Command… I guess I need to get this after all >_<

Anime Euro Best ~Girls Edition~ – Final Release Info

Posted by DanceMaster on January 19, 2011

Anime Euro Best ~Girls Edition~
Release Date: 1/19/11
Price: 2286 yen

Only 3 new songs, and one of those is a resing. 🙁 One of the new songs is by DJ Command, while Sumijun of Halozy is responsible for the other two. “Shinryaku no Susume” is certainly up to DJ Command’s usual standards, and I actually really enjoy Sumijun’s work, but 2286 yen for a handful of new songs sure is a lot to ask.

Anime Euro Best ~Best Edition~ – Pre-release Info

Posted by DanceMaster on December 29, 2010

Anime Euro Best ~Best Edition~
Release Date: 2/23/11
Price: 1905 yen

Seriously?! Dreamusic will be releasing an AEB best-of collection next February despite there only being 3 albums in the series so far, and a majority of those tracks were repeats from the Super Anime Remix series. The only upside about this release is that it’s 2000 yen instead of the usual 2400 yen.

30 tracks in all, with perhaps 2 or 3 new songs.

Price: 1905 yen

A blatant ripoff of Tokuma Japan’s popular Geki Atsu! J-Euro series, which focuses on popular Pachinko/Pachislot themes. So far the list is composed only of old Akiba Koubou productions. It remains to be seen if that will change.
