Exit Trance Update (2009-07-01)

Posted by DanceMaster on July 2, 2009

July’s biggest releases are now out, and full versions are up on iTunes:

Exit Trance presents Speed Anime Trance Best 7
Exit Trance presents Zenbei No. 1 Cinema Covers 2

Speed Anime Trance Best 7 is selling at a brisk pace, landing at 13th place on Oricon’s daily charts. It slipped to 15 yesterday, but I think it’s outpacing SATB 6. Cinema Covers 2 barely made a dent, but that’s typical for Quake’s non-anime releases.

It turns out that the final track on SATB 7 ended up being the Ryu* remix after all. And according to Quake, it’s an original song. Now I’m wondering where the original, non-Ryu* version will pop up. SATB 7 is pretty enjoyable overall, though their version of “Don’t say ‘lazy'” pales in comparison to the kors k mix. I’m not entirely sure what to make of “Shut Up and Explode,” either. It’s good, no doubt, but it’s also far too similar to the original. That said, MK, Starving Trancer, and B.U.S. brought the goods with excellent remixes of their respective songs.

As for Cinema Covers, I have four words for you: FOO YOU GONNA CALL? I don’t think I’ll ever listen to that song in the same way ever again. Other highlights include “Superman,” “Navras” (would’ve been better with the chanting, however) and, unsurprisingly, “Raider’s March.” Meanwhile, “Welcome to Jurassic Park” ended up being a bit of surprise. I was expecting them to reuse the melody already heard on Cinema Trance’s “Theme from Jurassic Park,” but they used a different motif as the basis, so it is indeed an entirely new song. The focus is also more on pianos, unlike the synth-heavy “Theme.”

So, remember, if there’s something strange in your neighborfood, foo you gonna call?

Summer Sales!

Posted by DanceMaster on June 29, 2009

Lots of great summer sales going on at various retailers. Don’t miss out on your chance to support your favorite music and save some dough in the process.

CDJapan: 2009 Summer Coupon Offer
Enter your e-mail address to receive a 500 yen coupon. Note that there’s a misprint in the description. It claims that the coupon is only valid for orders over 5,000 yen, but the minimum is really 3,000 yen. The e-mail address you enter must be linked to your CDJapan account.

I recommend using the coupon on Natsu Monogatari, or Wa Euro Best + Love House Extra. For Exit Trance fans, you can’t go wrong with the epic combination of Cinema Covers 2 + Speed Anime Trance Best 7.

HMV: All CD’s x10 points!
HMV Japan usually only offers 1 point for every 100 yen spent, or 1%. However, for a limited time they’re giving away 10 points for every 100 yen, which is an astounding 10% back. ALL CDs are eligible, but the campaign only lasts until July 1, so get orderin’!

HMV: 2 JP Edition CDs at 20% Off!
Not as good as their previous 3 CD’s at 23% off offer, but still a good deal, especially in combination with their x10 points offer. This time most albums released before December 2008 are included. A good time to complete your Exit Trance, Dancemania, or SEB collections.

Also keep an eye out for a shelf-clearing sale of my own coming soon. I’ll mostly be offering Dancemania albums, but I will have a few other trance and eurobeat albums for sale as well.

Just wanted to alert everyone to the fact that HMV Japan are having a massive Spring sale at the moment:

23% off if you buy 3 qualifying CDs. The multi-buy discount generally applies to older titles. Pretty much everything released before and including October 2008 will be eligible. This is a great way to catch up on your collection and to support the dance/trance industry in Japan! For Exit Trance fans, this means that the price of an average album will only be ~1540 yen. For SEB fans, this means that older albums that used to cost upwards of 3000 yen are down to about 2300.
