Re: OFFICIAL DISCORD CHANNEL

I've joined. I'm just not familiar enough with Discord's UI and nuances to delve into it. I'll have to take make some time here soon to explore it more.

Re: Today's Tune

This was actually yesterday's tune. I listened to it probably over a dozen times yesterday. I had initially heard the song when SEB 201 came out, and I enjoyed it. But I wasn't really too fond of where Eurobeat was going in general at the time so I wasn't listening to each album more than once like ...

Re: Super Eurobeat and streaming services like Spotify

I think streaming services are good for discovering new music, but in general, I like to download music. I can definitely tell the difference in audio quality between a streamed song and a high quality mp3. Also, I don't think most streaming services allow for device downloads if you're using the fr...

Re: What Was Bad Now Is Good?

I really can’t think of one. If there is a song that I don’t enjoy while listening to an album, I typically won’t listen to it again.

Re: So what's next?

Occasional non-stops with new tracks would be cool. I'm pretty hyped for the new Initial D album. I'm just hoping that the new tracks are actually Eurobeat and not J-Euro or anything else. Also, re: SEB itself. From what I've gathered reading the forum and talking to people, it will be a new series ...

Does anyone have info re: "Super Euro Train" or "Dance Express Hi-Speed"

These were obscure Eurobeat releases that I recently came across and was curious as to any info regarding the production team/labels, vocalists, etc. Here 's the Discogs release page for Super Euro Train. It had a lot of covers of more popular songs. The first Dance Express Hi-Speed doesn't have a D...

Re: Random Eurobeat Thoughts

I've read/heard that SEB will be continuing as an annual release moving forward, possibly as a new series/not under the "Super Eurobeat" name. My two cents is: an annual physical release of new songs as a non-stop mix along with a coinciding digital release of the extended versions would be nice.

Re: Eurodance, Italodance?

Really? That success will never be as big as in Europe and here in Poland I mean, it was never super-mainstream, but odds are a lot of people could identify some songs. Examples: "2 Unlimited - Get Ready For This" is used at tons of NBA, NFL, NHL, etc. sporting events The movie "A Night At The Roxb...

Re: 10 albums or compilations which had impact on you

Sorry, I couldn't list just 10 albums. I'm gonna include my favorite track from each of these albums. They're not all necessarily in my top 10 favorite albums. Some of them just bring back memories, so they're here for nostalgia purposes. Some of the music on here might not really be interesting to ...

The "baby can't you see" that closes out the chorus is awesome.

Re: Eurodance, Italodance?

I love Eurodance. I'm starting to delve into it more lately, although I doubt I'll ever be as involved with Eurodance as I was with Eurobeat due to time constraints/lack of patient haha. What I love about Eurodance is that some songs did have commercial success here in the US, so it evokes some nost...

Re: How did you get into Eurobeat?

I haven't posted in here? I started playing DDR back in 2003. So I had heard some Eurobeat here and there, although I didn't know what specific genre it was at the time. Then I started playing Initial D V3 at the arcade and StepMania which exposed me to Eurobeat further. It was the old simfile artis...

Re: Eurobeat ripoffs/similarities to other songs

LBtiUteVRQY yo9IYI7BV8g Despite a totally different synth hook and slightly modified lyrics, this Phil Jones song is a complete and utter ripoff of the Hi-Site track from Euro Panic! 1, even though the writer credits are entirely distinct. iirc Javy told me a long time ago that there is in fact a c...

Re: Eurobeat Labels: The Complete Catalogue

I've been going through my collection and I have some questions re: the vocalist Melody Castellari. I've been listening to the songs that are ascribed to her in the catalog and I'm personally noticing 2 distinct, different voices. I'm curious if there may be some errors with the catalog or if maybe ...
