DJ Kenny – Blue Force Part 2 (Tokyo Mix)

Posted by DanceMaster on March 25, 2011

DJ Kenny

Speaking of Trance Rave, DJ Kenny recently released a reworked version of his debut song, “Blue Force,” which originally appeared on Trance Rave Best 18. It’s unfortunate they didn’t get him and other Trance Rave artists to do new songs for Trance Rave Best 21. 🙁

Trance Rave Best XXI “World Greatest Hits” ~Super Best Coverz~ – Pre-release Info

Posted by DanceMaster on February 20, 2011

Trance Rave Best XXI “World Greatest Hits” ~Super Best Coverz~
Release Date: 4/6/11
Price: 1900 yen

Victor seems intent on resurrecting a lot of their series lately, as the last Trance Rave Best came out almost 9 months ago with the release of Trance Rave Best 20. I kind of assumed they ended it since 20 would’ve been a nice number to go out on, but TRB is back with a collection of covers. Unfortunately, most of these covers are quite old and definitely overplayed.

Trance Rave “20th Anniversary” Perfect Best – Final Release Info

Posted by DanceMaster on June 24, 2010

TRB 20Trance Rave “20th Anniversary” Special Best
Release Date: 6/23/10
Price: 2848 yen

The 20th release in the ground-breaking Trance Rave Best series also commemorates the 10-year anniversary of the series. A DVD will be included with footage from various Trance Rave parties.

The track list is pretty much all repeats. It would’ve been nice to see a few new tracks, but I can’t deny that the selection is a good approximation of the best of Trance Rave. Any guesses on what the lead track is?

Mega*Best -2010- – Pre-release Info

Posted by DanceMaster on February 18, 2010

Mega*Best -2010-
Release Date: 2/24/10
Price: 2362 yen

A new compilation from Victor Japan collecting the best hits from 2009-2010. Tracks will be collected from Buchiage Parance, Trance Rave, and Victor’s other releases from the past year. Personally, I don’t see the point. It just seems like another excuse to push the same old repeats. :/

Trance Rave presents Club atom -The Best- – Final Release Info

Club atom -The Best-Trance Rave presents Club atom -The Best-
Release Date: 2/10/10
Price: 1900 yen

STAY?! There are a few new songs and remixes, so it’s not a total loss. But for the life of me I can’t figure out why “Stay” has been on so many compilations lately. The song is almost a decade old at this point!

Trance Rave presents Club atom -The Best- – Pre-release Info

Posted by DanceMaster on December 26, 2009

Trance Rave presents Club atom -The Best-
Release Date: 2/10/10
Price: 1900 yen

The CD was originally listed as “Club atom Vol. 5,” but the title has since been changed. This is actually a rather surprising release since Vol. 4 was released way back in 2007. I wonder what would prompt Victor to release another CD in the series after such a long hiatus? CDJapan’s description suggests that the CD will include not only trance, but house as well.

Trance Rave Best XVIII – Final Release Info

Posted by DanceMaster on June 11, 2009

TRB 18Trance Rave Best XVIII
Release Date: 6/24/09
Price: 1900 yen

Mostly Quake repeats. In fact, track 7 already appeared on TRB 17!

That said, Victor made good on their promise to include original tracks from Japanese DJs. We’ve got a new, original Delaction track as well a new track from Los Hermanos. The previously unknown DJ Kenny also makes his TRB debut.

Really good stuff. I hope we get to hear more from DJ Kenny in the future.

Trance Rave Best XVIII – Pre-release Info

Posted by DanceMaster on May 15, 2009

Trance Rave Best XVII
Release Date: 6/24/09
Price: 1900 yen

Trance Rave Best used to have exclusive tracks, but lately they’ve been full of nothing but Quake repeats. Supposedly this latest volume will include original songs from Japanese DJs. I’ll believe it when I see it, though. Scheduled artists include Cascada and Infected Mushroom, while DJ Kaya will once again be mixing.

Trance Rave Best XVII – Final Release Info

Posted by DanceMaster on December 5, 2008

Trance Rave Best XVIITrance Rave Best XVII
Release Date: 12/24/08
Price: 1900 yen

Well, I called it. “Caramelldansen” infects yet another trance compilation. It was kinda funny at first, but now it’s just getting ridiculous. At least they refrained from using “Sousei no Aquarion,” though that’s probably because it already appeared on Trance Rave Best XVI.

Anyway, TRB 17 comprises mostly Quake Trance Best tracks of the last year, though in some cases they reached as far back as 2005. Also included are some tracks from Quake’s various Exit Trance series.

Trance Rave Best XVII
Release Date: 12/24/08
Price: 1900 yen

Victor Japan’s semiannual trance compilation series continues with this unprecedented 17th release. Details are sparse at the moment, but expect the most popular tracks of 2008 to appear. If you haven’t been paying attention, that most likely means “Caramelldansen” will be included.
