The EDM ~Erotic Dance Mix~ – Final Release Info

Posted by DanceMaster on December 24, 2013

The EDM ~Erotic Dance Mix~ mixed by DJ Rie
Release Date: 12/25/13
Price: 1900 yen

Another EDM compilation, this time from Victor Japan. I did a double-take when I first saw the title, thinking it was somehow related to E-Rotic, but no such luck. I’m not really sure why it’s an “erotic” dance mix, but it may have something to do with the fact that it’s being mixed by a female DJ, DJ Rie.

Emergency – ADM -Anime Dance Music produced by tkrism- – Final Release Info

Posted by DanceMaster on October 2, 2013

ADM -Anime Dance Music produced by tkrism-
Artist: Emergency
Release Date: 9/25/13
Price: 2286 yen

The EDM boom is still in full effect, it seems, as evidenced by this combination of EDM and anime songs. The music is produced by tkrism, with vocals by Emergency. You can find more news on the group on their official website.

There’ll be retailer-exclusive bonuses available, ranging from bonus drama CDs to alternative CD covers.

Also worth noting is the digital release, available on iTunes Japan. The CD version has full versions, as does the iTunes release, but what’s interesting is that the iTunes release also has an exclusive 50 minute non-stop DJ mix! So, you get full versions plus the non-stop for only 1800 yen, which is about 400 yen cheaper than the CD. Now that is how you do a digital release.

Release Date: 3/6/13
Price: 1900 yen

New compilation from Victor Japan. Features R&B and electro house songs from around the world. Most of the announced songs so far are by the original artists, but I bet there’ll be a few covers on the final list, which should consist of about 30 tracks. It seems like it’s been a while since DJ Fumi*Yeah! has mixed an album for a major label.

Koi Euro Best – Final Release Info

Posted by DanceMaster on March 22, 2012

Koi Euro Best
Release Date: 3/21/12
Price: 1900 yen

Producers have been revealed, and it’s mostly valle blanco, with some Beat Charger, Ovrar, Tks (Rayto), and DJ Command thrown in. Akiba Koubou have also put up a digest of songs on YouTube.

This honestly isn’t as bad as I thought it would be, especially compared to the lackluster Kiwami Euro Best. 7 repeats (or 12 if you include resings) isn’t too bad, and the fact that they stayed away from the usual Anime covers was a good choice. I really wish they had went with new Nagisa tracks instead of using songs from 3 years ago, though. Now that I think about it, lately Nagisa has been shut out of the latest Akiba Koubou releases. Hopefully she’s just busy working on a second album.
