Quake Trance Best 21 – Final Release Info

Posted by DanceMaster on June 14, 2009

QTB 21Quake Trance Best 21
Release Date: 6/17/09
Price: 1905 yen

Almost half of the album is taken from the Quake News releases. o_O Not everything on the early list made it (no Axel F!!), and there’s a surprising lack of DJ Gollum despite his dominance on QTB 20.

Price: 951 yen

I’m pretty sure Helios, who selects the tracks for this series, is an unabashed fan of Smile.dk, so I’m kind of surprised that he hasn’t found a way to include them yet. The actual list is mostly the same old Handz Up (do people still use that term anymore?) from the same old artists.

Quake Trance Best 20 – Final Release Info

Posted by DanceMaster on February 11, 2009

QTB 20Quake Trance Best 20 ~Anniversary~
Release Date: 2/18/09
Price: 1905 yen

Someone must really like DJ Gollum, as he’s on no less than 1/4 of the album. Otherwise, the usual suspects apply. The only notable absentee is Cascada. Although, really, what’s the difference between Cascada, Liz Kay, Dyce, etc.?

For those wondering, “I Turn to You” and “All the Things She Said” are indeed covers. However, “Surrender” is not a cover of the Lasgo song. That’s probably for the best, as needless trance covers of songs that were trance to begin with annoy the heck out of me. Remember when Manian and about a dozen other DJs kept covering “Heaven”? The worst part was that they all somehow appeared on Quake/Exit Trance!

As always, Quake Trance Best 20 will be mixed by DJ Uto.

Quake Trance Best 20 – Pre-release Info

QTB 20Quake Trance Best 20 ~Anniversary~
Release Date: 2/18/09
Price: 1905 yen

Quake Trance returns! Last year saw only 2 Quake Trance Best releases, whereas at the height of the trance boom there were 4 releases a year. I was starting to think that Quake Trance was down for the count, but it’s coming back this February with even more of the latest Handz Up tunes. Once again, it’ll be mixed by the legendary DJ Uto.

And yes, I love any excuse to pull that DJ Uto picture out.

Quake Trance Best.19 – Pre-release Info

Posted by DanceMaster on August 3, 2008

Quake Trance Best 19Quake Trance Best.19
Release Date: 8/23/08
Price: 1905 yen

Quake Trance has been somewhat neglected in recent months in favor of the more lucrative Exit Trance series. The 19th release in the series was originally supposed to come out in July, but was delayed to August, making it a full 5 months since the last release. In the past, new releases would come out every 3 months, so it’s clear that DJ Uto has new priorities.

Only a few tracks have been announced so far:

01. Yozora (Trance Cover) / Originally by Miliyah Kato
02. Come On (Trance Cover) / Originally by Charlie
03. Caipirinha / Carinho
04. Undecided / Cascada
05. Undecided / Liz Kay
06. Caramelldansen / Caramell

I think “Caramelldansen” just surpassed “Sousei no Aquarion” as the most overexposed song of the year. We’ll know for sure if other labels start commissioning their own covers, or if it somehow shows up on TranceMaster 2.

As always, the album will be mixed by the original trance gansta, DJ Uto.
