Vibes Zenkai Spring Festival! – Digital Downloads

Posted by DanceMaster on April 21, 2015

Vibes Zenkai Spring Festival! (Vibes Zenkai Haru Matsuri!)
Release Date: 4/15/14
Price: 1000 yen

Digital only follow-up to last year’s Vibes Zenkai Summer Festival! There’s no accompanying mix CD this time, it seems. At first I was surprised that there were actually some more recent songs, and then I kept reading the tracklist and saw “Beauty and a Beat” and “2012 (It Ain’t the End).” -_-

Anison Mix Laboratory ~Second Report~ – Update

Posted by DanceMaster on March 13, 2015

Anison Mix Laboratory ~Second Report~
Release Date: 4/29/15
Price: 2778 yen

Cover art has been revealed, and a few new additional tracks have been announced. “Sorairo Days” is probably the most out-of-place pick, since I thought they were aiming to have songs from more recent shows. Vocalist have also been announced, and it looks like mostly idol groups. Still no word on who will be producing the individual tracks, or what genres will be represented.

Universal have set up an official website for the series.

EDM Anthem – Best Mix – Pre-release Info

Posted by DanceMaster on March 10, 2015

EDM Anthem – Best Mix
Release Date: 5/20/15
Price: 2200 yen

Update: Early list is out. Thankfully, there are “new” tracks, or at least tracks that haven’t appeared on EDM Anthem before. 30 tracks are planned in all.

The good news is that EDM Anthem is still alive. The bad news is that the next release will be a best mix, even though I Love EDM -Hits & Anthems- already served as one. No early list yet, but hopefully they’ll sprinkle in a few new tracks.

Posted by DanceMaster on February 27, 2015

Tokyo Girls Party -TGC 10th Anniversary Best Mega Mix- mixed by DJ Fumi*Yeah
Release Date: 2/18/15
Price: 2100 yen
Total Length: 1:21:21

Upcoming tie-in compilation from Universal. The CD will be the official mix of Tokyo Girls Collection, a fashion festival that’s celebrating its 10th anniversary this year. Interestingly, Universal have set up a website for DJ Fumi*Yeah, who’s doing the mixing for this CD. Hopefully they’ll continue to collaborate in the future, as I really enjoy Fumi*Yeah’s mixing. It also looks like he squeezed every last bit of music he could onto the CD, as it’s over 81 minutes long. o_O

Update (2/22/15): A few new details have emerged. The album will be produced by DJ Kenzi, who some may remember produced and mixed Meganimation a couple of years ago.
