Artist: Initial P
Release Date: ??/??/12
Price: ???

Recently announced on the Disko Warp twitter page, Disko Warp’s next album will feature covers of video game songs. Apparently it’ll feature covers of vocal songs only, so it’ll be interesting to see what songs make the final list. Guest artists include Ani-Rock!, J-Mi & Midi-D, Reni Mimura, Vandalet. It also sounds like there’ll be another Kickstarter for a physical release, so be on the lookout for that near the end of this month.

Dragon Quest Best Dance Mix – Pre-release Info

Dragon Quest Best Dance MixDragon Quest Best Dance Mix
Release Date: 3/4/09
Price: 2190 yen

Well, this is a surprise. VGM dance remix albums have been a dime a dozen lately, with Space Invaders 2008, Konami Addiction, and Final Fantasy Remix all coming out within the past year. Up until now most of these remixes have been of the electro or techno variety. Avex are about to change that, however, with the release of Dragon Quest Best Dance Mix. Leave it to Avex to finally release what I’ve been dreaming of for so long: VGM trance.

Dragon Quest Best Dance Mix will be produced solely by the trance artist known as DragonFly. According to his profile, he first got a synthesizer when he was 18 years old. At the age of 21 he released an album on iTunes featuring eight original songs as well as two Dragon Quest remixes. You can listen to one of those DQ remixes, “Overture,” on his MySpace.

“Overture” sounds okay but I think his other tracks are more promising. “Yo! Kabuki” in particular is my favorite of the bunch. I’ve long been a fan of wafuu fusion (wafusion, if you will) styles, so I hope he also implements traditional Japanese instruments in his new DQ remixes.
