Hyperbeat?

Post by para_rigby » Sep 10th, '17, 14:04

I've seen scans from The Beat Freak magazine calling eurobeat tracks "hyperbeat". Anyone care to explain why?

I see Hyperbeat for these tracks in 1994.

Beat Freak magazines are uploaded since a few weeks already on A.Beat-C. FB site and there is next term, Mega-NRG for some songs in 1991. Also of course Italo/Hi-NRG and Eurobeat.

Curiosity, when has born Hyper Techno term ? In 1995 it was called House in an article.

What difference might be except who made a specified track in more or less own style ? No idea, probably even translation wouldn't help. Publishers, DJs criteria.

Anybody (at least from here) who haven't seen yet tons of this material ? Everything goes to me, because these are magazines mostly before Delta, only A.Beat-C. and Time Records and all earlier labels.

If I remember, the Japanese thought that eurobeat was going to evolve so much that they couldn't even call it eurobeat anymore because on how crazy it was. However, they never tried to make that change and it stayed eurobeat.

...I think it was something like that. I don't remember.

My guess on what Hyperbeat is .. are tracks like:Big Boss (Akyr) / Ritmo Loco (Akyr) / Big Boy Saetta Kid (Farm) / etc ~

They sound nothing like 90's Eurobeat & Japanese people probably thought it was gonna spin-off into it's own genre like HT ..

Would love to hear an example on YouTube of what those magazines were actually referring to though?

I can't understand it just as a listener of so called "Eurobeat". Songs are different just because various persons are them doing.

What for one vocalist sang under several aliases and Japanese introduced next projects as new artists (models) ?

For sure the same why many names of styles appeared. Marketing. It looks nice, fresh. A.Beat-C. crew officially implemented new trends before A.Beat-C. foundation yet, felt at discotheques, so this was perfect moment to invent a seasonal substyle.

If Eurobeat which previously good as the quite free style of imported dance music under one name, became less popular in discotheques circa 1992/1993, so to rise it again, after Mega-NRG time came for Hyperbeat. :)

And so since 27 years Super Eurobeat series title is intact, although not all songs during years had one term.

Hey, Japanese are inteligent community ! :)

Eurobeat was released in their country, they didn't have to "think", because the genre was evolving in their eyes, and as I told above they have noticed new teams of producers and trends, and every month wrote interviews and stories about that.

Others needed to think and guess...
