Disko Warp presents Anime Love Hardcore 2 – Pre-release Info

Disko Warp presents Anime Love Hardcore 2
Artist: Initial P
Release Date: 4/10/12
Price: ???

The upcoming sequel to 2010’s Anime Love Hardcore features 10 more anime themes redone in happy hardcore style. The track list looks to be a mix of anime standards as well as lesser-known songs. “Discotheque” has always been a favorite of mine, and I love the Engrish goodness of “Red Fraction,” but the Ouendan fan in me is most looking forward to “Ready Steady Go!”

It’s still unknown how the album will be distributed, though it’s been mentioned that it will be available digitally. Pete is also trying to get a Kickstarter campaign started in order to fund a physical CD release. As with the first release, I imagine licensing agreements may prevent it from being available outside of the US regardless of how it’s released, but I guess we’ll have to wait and see.

In the meantime, the first Anime Love Hardcore is still available on iTunes: http://itunes.apple.com/us/album/disko-warp-presents-anime/id366681411

Update: As mentioned by Pete in the comments, the album will be released digitally on iTunes. Again, due to licensing restrictions it will only be available in the US.

Also make sure to check out the Kickstarter campaign if you want to help fund a physical CD release. The $30 level is a pretty good deal, with CD copies of Anime Love Hardcore 1+2 plus a bunch of Disko Warp-branded goods.

A few samples are up on the official website, and more will be added in the coming weeks. I’m a bit disappointed that Ani-Rock’s English pronunciation is so good; I loved the sheer randomness of mint’s Hime Trance version. 😀
