Wait wait wait... the return of... A-Beat-C? Sandro, Giancarlo and other staff?
I'm probably jumping to conclusions but damn.
This studio came to insolvency because too many persons decided to make Eurobeat at home or went their own way.

Simply a bit selfish regardless the reasons, what has resulted for A.Beat-C. existence.

Now the same artists don't produce for Go Go's Music and Sun Fire disappeared...

Place like Rodgers Studio established on Eurobeat business must ceased the activity some day, due to sharing the cake among more and more labels.

If somebody never had in Eurobeat the real work and business still today may be calm about the future.

Just a Facebook post with sad reactions by people strongly related once with that place and a positive wish in a comment.

I wonder if Contini & Sinclaire were also among the earlier staff that frequented the studio before A-Beat-C stopped making records. I hope if a reunion takes place it'll lead to something creative
It seems to be clear that the studio belonged as a whole to Dave Rodgers, if within the past 10 years Eurobeat was making there after division of A.Beat-C.

Most of fans rather don't know what has been placed behind, so how much costed maintenance of the area...

Alberto Contini was the co-owner, co-founder of Rodgers & Contini Records and A.Beat-C., in turn Contini Edizioni Musicali still exists as the Eurobeat publisher.

Bratt Sinclaire was freelancer, even not the member of the team, and once expressed his "sentiment" to this period in very eloquent for me words, although he owes A.Beat-C. the opportunity of Eurobeat production... Anyway nothing belonged to him in ex studios, the current white building has been created after he left A.Beat-C.

I heard things like that before. It's not really a surprise that the young maestro made Giancarlo jealous because he created instant hits like Tango Tango and King & Queen 8)

Regardless of what do you quote, according to an interview, SEB entered the market with no hype.

It's pretty logical. At that time many series were on sale, headed with That's Eurobeat.

Except the credits in booklets and reviews, various studio composers never been promoted.

Only the label owners, so main producers and stage artists, models of the main projects.
The big 3 on Eurobeat market till 1996 was called Dave Rodgers, Giacomo Maiolini and F.C.F.

Therefore until the commercial success of "Tora Tora Tora" in 1994 and foundation of Delta as the player in the game, Bratt Sinclaire remained officially pretty unknown, at least comparing with others and still this song got fame for A.Beat-C.

Before A. Leonardi wrote these higher rated mentioned tracks in 1991 with A. Contini, G. Pasquini released 5 CD albums and over a dozen instant hits !

For me it would be a madness, if Dave Rodgers quite popular in Japan and on Italo Disco scene since 1985 would've been really jealous of 2 titles from 1991, made by a young musician who joined to italian dance music at the latest...

I'm against any unhealth competition. In these big record companies all staff worked for common success, however in Japan this wasn’t shown...

About the limited and specific "sentiment" I reffered to Bratt Sinclaire, but not less to Giancarlo Pasquini. Especially the studio producers should treat all their songs equally, no matter how old, under which labels released.

Unfortunately it’s not so. Ex collaborators lost the importance or better to hide them. Former stories and accidents affect on the perception of these early days...

Avex Trax for obvious reasons always favored A.Beat-C. Nevertheless everybody who participated in Eurobeat industry in 90’s should've not been jealous.

That's sad but understandable if running the studio was more of a personal "side project" thing, producing a record here or there for other artists rather than a full fledged business. Seems like it would be a challenge to turn a profit with that kind of venture even if you put 100% into it.

Now that you mention it, That's Eurobeat included photographs and text of artists like Coo Coo, Antonella, Mark Farina, Aleph, F.C.F.
Composers who didn't sing were not visible (except for Crivellente and Fadinger being members of F.C.F)

Maybe not specifically those two songs and certainly not with respect to his career since 1985. It was about his new label A beat C, about the most popular tracks in Japan not having been created by himself. Anyway, it's wat I heard, it's not an official statement or quote. BTW, I personally do like most of the early songs on A beat C, and don't mind who wrote them.

But it might make a small difference when you've realized that the first music composer can't be credited after lyrics writer in SIAE.

Unless on a record which go directly to fans and the list of names can be in another order...

The places of credits haven't changed till nowadays, however this had a huge importance for fame and when every song has been extremely significant in the early years of building the renown. :D :D :D

I found many more examples. So the reality of promoted big producers and all the rest staff...

A new label of Dave Rodgers turned out to be established very discreetly...

The sample below you can find on his Facebook. Then you will reach to the new fan page and Amazon digital sale.

Disco/Dance music, there is nothing excluded, but I can't see any word about Eurobeat.
