Max is miles further than in 90's and his decisions for such huge company like Avex Trax can't be against overall business rules.
yep yep ～ I concur .. also of note this year Avex brought in Richard Blackstone (Google his background)
to split the management of Avex Group Holdings. Alongside founder Max he is co-director of Avex as of April 2017.
They could always publish Eurobeat over the internet .. but I gather it's just not profitable anymore to give the Italian studios money for new songs.

I did some research last year on what it costs to typically make a song of any genre from scratch. Mind you it doesn't take anything but time .. but for the sake of business, let's just say a typical professional studio/producer/team charges around $1,000 USD and higher for a 3 to 5 minute song. That does not include rights, ie. the rights are still the studio's.
If you're a musician, you can charge for your music from zero to a billion dollars & beyond. Let's take the theoretical example that you want SinclaireStyle to make a 13 track Hyper Techno LP and release it over Bandcamp.com | I think it's fair to first meet-up in person with Bratt & talk business, secondly to give him all the time he wants w/ no deadline for when the project is due, lastly start the price @ $1,000 USD for a track, but if he needs more money then you need to comply or no album. 13 songs at a minimum of $1,000 USD a song - that's approx. $13,000 USD for executive producing this theoretical Hyper Techno LP, released over Bandcamp, w/ all the rights to the songs kept by SinclaireStyle. You get your music and everyone's happy！
That's about the most kickstarter way of getting a professional team to make an album w/o actually using Kickstarter Patreon Gofundme etc etc ..
Sounds too complicated？Well if you're a professional studio, with very real expenses like artists & equipment & electricity, you can make music for free .. or negotiate with a company like Avex. Avex isn't evil .. as a company they're just shrewd.

But like I mentioned .. keep your hopes up！This isn't the death of Italian Eurobeat .. rather the birth of something new ～
