“DJ MEGUMI’s BiS MiX” is a CD featuring a nonstop mix of BiS’ songs and ex-member Megumi Koshoji on the cover. While it is not unusual for idols to also DJ from time to time, do not be deceived by Koshoji’s cool visage! This CD is actually by hiyokochang, who is a DJ at Shibuya’s TRUMPROOM nightclub. This is not to say you shouldn’t buy it but, just know that it wasn’t “Megumon” who was behind the turntables during the creation of this mix CD. However, if you do pre-order it, there will be 1 of 6 randomly selected photo of Koshoji enclosed in the CD. (TGU)
