Exit Trance presents Speed Anime Trance Best 18 – Final Release Info

Posted by DanceMaster on April 30, 2013

Exit Trance presents Speed Anime Trance Best 18
Release Date: 5/1/13
Price: 1905 yen

SATB 18 just came out, and the CD version is notable for taking up all 80 minutes on the CD. If they weren’t going to have 20 tracks, at least they used up every single second they possibly could. First-press copies come with a cell phone strap. Also, I didn’t notice before, but it looks like they stopped doing the Karaoke CD present after SATB 16. Instead, sending in the included survey will get you some sort of autographed item.

Exit Trance presents Speed Anime Trance Best 18 – Update

Posted by DanceMaster on April 23, 2013

Exit Trance presents Speed Anime Trance Best 18
Release Date: 5/1/13
Price: 1905 yen

Final list is out, and it’s 19 tracks total. The tracks have been divvied up a bit more evenly than they were on SATB 17, where 2 artists got 5 tracks each. This time, Hommarju and Disco da Gama lead the pack with 4 tracks each. Booing Day and MK each get 3 tracks, while Flash back Dominant and Icon get 2 each and plazma rounds out the list with a single track. Ryu*’s absence isn’t a surprise, but there’s sadly still no Dizzi Mystica. It makes me wonder if he’s just too busy with his own sample production company, Katana Bits. Or maybe he’s just taking a break like MK did for a while. Or was Disco da Gama his alias? I honestly keep forgetting.

Edit: According to the Chinese Wikipedia page for Exit Trance, Disco da Gama is indeed Dizzi Mystica. Loli Salad did a nice job making the list more presentable, and it’s neat to see the who’s behind the various aliases.

Exit Trance presents Speed Anime Trance Best 17 – Pre-release Info

Posted by DanceMaster on October 9, 2012

Exit Trance presents Speed Anime Trance Best 17
Release Date: 1/2/13
Price: 1905 yen

Only 2 SATB releases this year. 🙁 On the plus side, it looks like they’re changing up the release schedule, as the 17th release in the series will come out in January instead of the usual April. One odd thing is that it’s being listed as “Exit Tunes presents” instead of the usual “Exit Trance presents”. Is the Exit Trance brand finally dead? I guess we’ll see…
