Overhead Champion – Back to Basics – Pre-release Info

Back to Basics
Artist: Overhead Champion
Release Date: 1/14/15
Price: 1852 yen

Update (11/13/14): I got a mention on OHC’s twitter o_O Apparently the collaboration info is incorrect, so the label was probably just talking about his previous collaborations. Also, in another tweet it’s mentioned that there are 20 songs planned.

Original Post:


Ahem. It looks like OHC’s involvement on the recent Sick EDM 02 compilation wasn’t just a coincidence. This upcoming January, Dreamusic will be releasing a full-fledged OHC album. Presumably it will have the tracks from OHC’s recent EP that bore the same name. But there will also be new tracks, including collaborations with trance legends like DJ Kaya, Remo-Con, Yoji Biomehanika and NISH.

Interestingly, the description for the album confirms what I’ve suspected for the past few months: the EDM boom has brought with it an uptick in the popularity of trance. The description cites the increased number of trance events the past year, and even mentions that Cyber Trance is planned to return in 2015 as an entire tour!

Pre-order at CDJapan.

    Glad to know that Cyber Trance is being revived. Avex and Victor need to start the boom again.

  2. Vincent Says:

    Judging by the title “Back To Basics”. I hope it means that he is releasing songs from when he started.

  3. Doc-S Says:

    Well this is surprising. I was wondering when any of these guys would make something new.

  4. DanceMaster Says:

    I think someone mentioned in the comments that OHC might release an album in January, but I never imagined it would be a physical album.

    I talked to him on twitter about it he said hed be releasing it around next year!

  6. Doc-S Says:

    Cause CDJapan are always a month behind everyone else at listing items.

  7. DanceMaster Says:

    It depends on the label. CDJapan get FARM data rather quickly, but HMV lag behind for some reason. But yeah, the album is already up for pre-order on HMV and Amazon.

  8. DanceMaster Says:

    CDJapan link is live now. Still no track list anywhere, though.
