Upcoming Indie & Doujin eurobeat releases!

Post by Lebon14 » Dec 20th, '16, 22:20

Hey guys.
This thread will serve hopefully informing people what's coming in the Japanese indie eurobeat world as well as the indie scene outside of Japan. Now, I won't hide the fact that I'm not well versed about eurobeat releases outside of Japan. So bare with me xD

So, what are the current known japanese producers / circles that make eurobeat? Let's have a look.
Inactive/disbanded
  • Akiba Koubou (Didn't hear from label for a while)
    NJK Record (Apparently revived. However, no eurobeat on sight)
Here are some Western Indie Eurobeat producers that comes to mind:
Let me know of your links. I probably missed a lot of them!

At the time of writing this, Comiket 91 is the next main Japanese event coming up. So, here are the releases.

A-One: "Toho Eurobeat Vol.14 Koumakyou", "Eurobeat Attack Vol.1"
Notes: TEB Vol.14 is the first TEB album to available for shipping oversea without a forwarder. Available on AliceBooks! Also, the series returns to Embodiment Of Scarlet Devil. Because why not. Also, Travis has a song on this TEB.

Unfortunately, for Eurobeat Attack, it's not available for shipping oversea on AliceBooks.
Click here for TEB cover and here for the tracklist. Click here to order for Alice-books.
Click here for EBA cover and tracklist.

Crazy Beats: "Initial T T-Selection Vol.4" and "Super Crazy Euro -Best Of S.E.S-".
Notes: New extended tracks from NMK and a non-stop mix of the best tracks that appeared on Super Euro Smash. The Super Euro Smash mix pretty much marks the end of that series in my opinion.

Click here for the cover and tracklist of Initial T T-Selection Vol.4.
Click here for the cover and tracklist of Super Crazy Euro -Best Of SES-.


Digital Wing: Digital Wing announced their new Hyper Techno release, Raver's Nest 7 Toho Rave Party. Then, they also announced a Best Of 2016 their multi-genre albums "DigiWi"/"Digiui" containing 1 new remix and 2 new songs. The later has 2 eurobeat tracks (no new ones).

Click here for information on Raver's Nest 7 Toho Rave Party. <- Never mind. People here, except me and xiao don't care about hyper techno.
Click here for information on DigiWi Best 2016.

Eurobeat Union: Oh boy! Two new compilations! Euro Baka Ichidai Vol. 7 AND Vol.8! Vol.8 is a mix though of songs featured from Vol. 5-7. If you purchase both, as a set on Melonbooks or Tora-No-Ana, it comes with a special DVD. Content unknown. Also available for shipping overseas (like all the other volumes) on Alice-Books. Unfortunately, the DVD is exclusive to Melonbooks and tora-no-ana (womp womp womp womp).

Click here for info on Euro Baka Ichidai Vol. 7 and Vol. 8. Vol. 7 on Alice-Books, Vol. 8 on Alice-Books.

Halozy: They announced a new album called "&#29356;&#29483;&#30340;&#38651;&#23376;&#24231;&#26354;" (Inu neko-teki denshi-za kyoku (Dogs & cats-like Electronic Seat Song)). It's a compilation album containing their folk tracks along some ballad electronica tracks. So, no eurobeat.

They also announced "Grand Slam", a new album. Unfortunately, it doesn't have any eurobeat on it and has a variety of electronica and rock.
Crossfade: https://soundcloud.com/halozy/hlzy-0026_demo

Their website hasn't been updated and it's unknown if they'll be available on Melonbook and Tora-No-Ana. Probably though since they are full length.

Sound Holic: Sound Holic makes a return to retail after Rockman Holic!! They have a collaboration with Bemani and will cover various tracks from recent rhythm games called "Magma". It will release under Exit Tunes and is available on CDJapan. Only 1 or 2 tracks are expected to be eurobeat. On the doujin market, they have... 3 releases but only one matters here: their new "Kanji series" album called "Izayoi". It will feature AT LEAST 1 eurobeat track. All eurobeat track sung by Nana Takahashi. Coz it's the only vocalist wiling to sing eurobeat.

Click here for information on Magma. Click here for CDJapan. Amazon JP. Exit Tunes Shop.
Click here for information on Izayoi. (The rest can be found from the same melonbooks link)

SuganoMusic: Sugano / Sugarini will be releasing a new volume of his new series "Eurobeat Festival" on C91. 11 tracks.

Click here for information on Eurobeat Festival Vol. 2.

Hopefully it helps people to follow the scene a bit more and when asked "what doujin eurobeat stuff did you like", well, you can answer.

Good JOB! I think this is what Kira was referring to with the previous thread.

It's a handful of artists making indy euro/techno nowadays BUT they're all amazing in some way.

A-One + DigiWi truly rival the quality both physically and sonically of the Italo studios making SEB.

Also you forgot Shin/Nick's label:

&#9733; Eurobeat Forever [Bandcamp]

Good stuff & Mandy MCD is one hell of a beautiful singer! :x ~ personal fave indy Euro Co. &#9825;

Hopefully, koolkool. Too bad that The Paradise Last is mostly inactive coz he'll be my favorite :(

Also, I made a mistake about Shoud Holic's magma being their second retail release. Actually, it's their second Bemani collaboration. They had another before that called Zan. Available here: http://www.cdjapan.co.jp/product/GFCA-386

&#12539; Isn't NJK Record just DJ Command & FN2 before they went onto TEB and subsequently started Eurobaka? Image

I don't really know who was part of that circle actually. I think I only know of two, the female vocalist called 3L and Maria(male sign)Polo. She participated a lot with Sound Holic the past few years. And Maria has seen two tracks with Euro Baka Ichidai (and one as "Diablo=Breaker")

Here's the tweet I saw earlier that they aren't dead:
https://twitter.com/nijikawahikaru/stat ... 4452937728

https://njk-record.jimdo.com/

So, there's this remix album. There's one song that was off Toho Eurobeat. However, I really doubt that thing will be eurobeat and more like the first two NJK Record albums that had nothing to do with eurobeat (and were absolute trash, imo).

&#29356;&#29483;&#30340;&#38651;&#23376;&#24231;&#26354; is a compilation album containing their folk tracks along some ballad electronica tracks. So, no eurobeat.

Why didn't I see this thread earlier? oO

Thank you so much, Lebon! That's how I imagined a good overview of Indie Eurobeat. I'm really interested in Eurobeat Attack!

Oh look, little old me is on this list <3 It's an honor to be part of indie eurobeat, it's something I've wanted to do for a long time but have never had the drive or the know-how up until last summer. Everyone should check out more of the indie music, especially the stuff from the west. There's some really great hidden talent out there!!

I hope more Indie eurobeat artists release more eurobeat songs around the world too. :-)

A-One announced Toho Eurobeat Vol. 15 Youyoumu today on their niconico live-stream.
I don't know yet if Travis has a track or not.
Twitter link: https://twitter.com/ELEMENTAS/status/855410804992090112
I think that's for Reitaisai which is on May 7.

Digital Wing announced Digital FLower Best (https://twitter.com/DiGiTAL_WiNG/status ... 1934464000) and Digiui Delight (https://twitter.com/DiGiTAL_WiNG/status ... 2505645057) yesterday on their twitter. All tweets have links to Soundcloud. The first is a Hanatan Best Of (1 eurobeat track), and the other is a new album of theirs (1 eurobeat too).

More later as I get the news.
