Ayako Saso of Supersweep mentions doing 4 tracks for this Wii game on her blog..

The ultra-catchy-pop Main Theme "TAP de Papapaya TAP" doesn't quite match her style though, so it's probably some other in-game BGM instead.

There's a song selector on the official site, and there's a ton of energetic music packed on that, so hopefully it'll get some type of OST.

Surprisingly it's the newer Basiscape members who are impressing me here!

Azusa Chiba and Noriyuki Kamikura (part of Sakimoto's Basiscape crew) get a chance to shine and they delivered, so this is a big boost for their rep.

Here's Chiba's trancy Milky Way Rendezvous and Kamikura's hyped Violet Interspace

Shoes "Missile Chewbacca" comes from non-vgm land, and did that slick main theme from the commercials, and other hot tracks like Kung Fu Disco.

I'm absolutely loving Chiba's. After hearing that sample, it makes me wonder if Chiba was responsible for "The Battle Was 'Just to Continue that Future'" from DoDonPachi Daifukkatsu. If so, god damn, sign her up for some more shmups!

Agreed.  I wasn't particularly interested in the game or soundtrack, but after hearing Milky Way, I've suddenly become pretty curious.  Violet Interspace is a great sample, too.

Gametrailer's got a preview up on the game, by the way:

Not what I expected, I'll say that - I thought from the name it was about tapdancing. My sister was a big fan of Taiko Drum Master (except for the way it would periodically corrupt her data regardless of what memory card she used) so I'll point this one her way.

The official OST is a bit on the short side (44 minutes), but the music is highly addictive and it's worth picking up. I think everyone did a fantastic job. I only wish the music looped >.<, but if you are someone like Angela, it'd fit perfectly for a 45 minute exercise routine wink.

Oh man, Let's Tap is simply perfect for a hearty aerobics session.  I've managed to easily work the soundtrack into my daily routine, though I'll admit the higher BPM songs, like Jupiter (Extreme Tap Edition) and Dandelion Rider wears me out.  And this is coming from a former Dance Dance Revolution player who used to be able to do something like MAX 300 with some decency.

All the tracks are immensely enjoyable, but my favorites are definitely 365 Children, Jupiter, Rainbow Gradation, Milky Way Rendezvous, and Violet Interspace.  As far as the official OST, it looks like they've left off the Tutorial and Silent Blocks tracks.  Tutorial is particularly missed, since it's such a great, mellow version of "Tap de Papapaya."

Looking forward to playing the English version in a few months and getting the soundtrack whenever I actualy have some money. smile

I only played Dancing stage at the arcades whenever I got but recently went and boutgh two games from the series. It makes me laugh so much because the mat keeps slipping and halfway through I look down and it's almost gone from under my feet. One of the versions is the Mario gamecube mix so you can imagine me nearly dropping from all the laughter that is watching Mario dance. tongue

Anyway, are the other tracks extremely upbeat like the music that is always playing on trailers?

Herrkotowski Mar 5, 2009

For the most part, they are upbeat, some more so than others, but there are a few "mellower" pieces, like Star Seeker and Blue Hero.

Finally got this soundtrack; I was optimistic at first, skeptical after hearing some samples, then optimistic again after hearing more samples, and now that I got it in my hot little hands, and on my MP3 player...it's AWEXOME.

I mean, which tracks off of it don't I like?!

"365 Children." Yeah. That's the reason I thought this album was going to be total crap. The "one-two-three-four" gets on my nerves, as does the chanting of children. Other than that...

"Tap de Papapaya" would've made a better opening theme. SO CATCHY!!

"Jupiter," "Rainbow Gradation," "City Night Line," and "DPU" are all chill-sexy-cool.

"Milky Way Rendezvous," "Violet Interspace," "Coconut Airport," "Dandelion Rider" are some good upbeat dance music.

"Moogelus High," "Chameleon," "Blue Hero," "From Universe," "Divers," and "Jupiter (Tap Extreme Edition)" are some really, REALLY hardcore, upbeat techno.

And "Star Seeker" is a chill-sexy-cool closing...PERFECT for a closing theme!

Only one really big problem with the album: All of the tracks are so short...they could've used longer run-times.

Otherwise, It's just absolutely perfect! I've been looking for some good techno for the longest time, and it finally appears out of nowhere!

Definitely recommended for Supersweep fans, and fans of both chill-sexy-cool and upbeat, danceable music! You'll be smitten immediately!...as soon as after you skip "365 Children." That piece is in no way indicative of anything else on the album...
