OLDCODEX “Full Colors”
Title: Full Colors Label: Lantis Music genre: EDM
Some of OLDCODEX‘s iconic songs get the remix treatment this week with the release of “Full Colors“.
If you ever imagined how OLDCODEX would sound if their song were not made for a mosh pit but for the dancefloor, this will be quite the entertaining release. If you’re thirsty for new music from OLDCODEX, this serves as a distraction.
A3! “A3! EVER LASTING LP”
Title: A3! EVER LASTING LP Label: Pony Canyon Music genre: Pop / Rock
Fans of the A3! franchise will get on CD their favorite songs featured in some of the events of the popular smartphone game.

If you’re a fan of A3!, and especially of the music featured in-game, this CD is a must.

Title: HypnosisMic 2nd Division Rap Battle “Fling Posse vs MAD TRIGGER CREW Label: EVIL LINE RECORDS Music genre: Hip-Hop
The 3rd battle in the 2nd division rap battle series in the Hypnosis Mic franchise pities Fling Posse (representing Shibuya) and MAD TRIGGER CREW (representing Yokohama) in “HypnosisMic 2nd Division Rap Battle “Fling Posse vs MAD TRIGGER CREW““.
Good vibes, strong bonds and a lot of want to win, as well a recent popularity boost to both crews – that have impressed in 2020 – make this the most unpredictable battle in this first round, pitying two fan favorites.
On my end it’s team Fling Posse however, either result would be a win as these are my favorite crews in the Hypnosis Mic.
