I don't think any label sound "old-school" nowadays but I agree that Delta still resembles their older works many times. What I see is that it depends on the alias, maybe? Ken Martin's and Dave Rodgers's songs sound a lot like their past songs IMO, same with Jeff Driller, David Dima… Well, who knows what will happen in the future? We got a very disco Hi-Nrg Attack in the 210's, for example. We're getting lots of old people back/new alias and artists now.

Delta & Hi-NRG Attack are definitely the most 'old skool'-ish sounding labels at the moment. Eurobeat has been "trancey" since 2004...I guess that was when SCP joined the main series. Honestly, I think trance is very popular among the US. US ravers are loving that UK Hardcore sounds like sped-up trance. Eurobeat & Happy Hardcore almost go hand-in-hand: They take influences from elsewhere. Eurobeat kinda seems stuck in a rut at the moment. Nothing groundbreaking has really been done since the 2013 re-launch. SS & Delta have been the two labels being the most innovative production wise. Maybe Hi-NRG Attack will turn back into a hyper label with tracks like Love, Peace, & Gun, Furious Thunder, and Dollars Go.

There's nothing wrong with modern Euro

I think we just need another iconic anime with Eurobeat BGM to generate that New Generation of fans Time Records & Delta helped create back in the mid to late 90's ~ or if you're outside Japan ~ in the early 2000's haha :D ✨

Or at least a non-stop/DJ mixed parapara side series...or maybe even another label (Farm) putting out CDs again.

Maaan Farm was awesome. I was under the impression that it was primarily Gelmetti, Stefano, Dima, and Robbie Cipro plus J-artists.

I guess all that creative energy rolled over to doujin stuff like TEB & Raver's Nest.

I'd be lying if I didn't wish for WLTP Vol.7 tho lol ... orz

I like the how TIME records used to incorporate some techno vibes in their intros during the 90's. They did it with style and overlapped Traditional Hi- Energy sounds with the techno ones. One of the most Techno sounding songs of the era was "Money Connection" from Dave Hammond or "Animal Criminal" by Toby Ash, but the synth riff was always old school. No one can do it like TIME records.

Well, remember that Renoir track? That was in no way a Eurobeat track. That was straight up trance to me.
Hands-Up Trance to be precise. Love that track!

Avex Trax already brought back beloved artists like Mega NRG Man, Ken Laszlo, and Nuage. If they somehow bring back Matt Land, Gelmetti, & Ken Blast into SEB ~ I'd die a happy neko. :D 🐱
Avex fortunately has nothing to do what is happening in Italy, who cooperate with who, who the producer brings back etc.

I spoke with the mixmaster Gelmetti today.

He would like to return to Eurobeat in general, but as he said since the one publisher now is Avex there is no room for him on SEB.

I'd welcome Gelmetti先生 with arms wide open on any platform not just SEB ... ✌️ ^^

Good to know him & other missed artists still keep the flame alive in their hearts ~ 💗

... あざっす!💙

I changed most my opinions when listening to it in full. Didn't skip any songs but… I won't listen some songs again lol. Well, it's a good album overall :neutral:

01. LOVE LOVE LOVE / FASTWAY [SCP] ★★★☆☆
It's Fastway, it's opening the album, surprise
02. UNDER THE POWER OF MY HEART / TIPSY & TIPSY [3B] ★★☆☆☆
Uhh… okay song too, they're really trying
03. BREAK INTO THE MUSIC / DAVE RODGERS [SF] ★★★☆☆
Dave sounds much better faster, almost there and I can groove to that
04. GOJIRA COMES AGAIN / CHAI [SS] ★☆☆☆☆
I liked the preview and I didn't expect to dislike it… someone surely will enjoy it
05. I’M NOT DREAMING / PAMSY [SCP] ★☆☆☆☆
It's slow and sounds odd. It's weird because I usually love Pamsy works
06. RING MY BELLS / J-STARK [DMI] ★★★☆☆
Really nice, I enjoyed the longer intro a lot too
07. FURIOUS THUNDER / CLAUDIA VIP [HRG] ★★★★★
Brilliant, literally, it seems like they're getting some of their light back and I couldn't be happier
08. FALL IN LOVE / NORMA SHEFFIELD [SF] ★★★★★
Norma Sheffield and love songs, enough said
09. LOVE COMES / PAUL HARRIS [DMI] ★★★★☆
Awesome song, Paul Harris is guaranteed to be good
10. REALLY LOVE YA / NATHALIE [SS] ★★☆☆☆
The vocals seem a little off, instrumental is okay
11. OH MY GOSH / MANUEL [GGM] ★★★★☆
Manuel songs are a lot of fun and this was really refreshing
12. FREE INTO THE SKY / STEPHY MARTIN [DIMA] ★★★★★
It's marvelous, everything is in harmony and sound so beautiful. One of those songs you like 2 seconds in. Best of the album hands down
13. DOLLARS GO / LUCKY BOY [HRG] ★★★★★
So much energy, it's amazing and Anthony's voice fits so well, I'm already dancing hahahahaha
14. LOVE IS IN THE AIR / NUAGE [GGM] ★★★★★
Superb work and it's nice to see Nuage back, I really enjoyed how the instrumental was put together here
15. ALL TIME HIGH / HOTBLADE [SCP] ★★★☆☆
It's Hotblade, it's ending the album, surprise

Ps. It would be great if everyone stopped with these 3 minutes long songs…
