Welcome to Eurobeat-Prime v.3.X
For quite a while now the site has been going steady without many actual content upgrades, nor other major changes. There has been lots of talk for more than year now about the upcoming layout but due to various reasons it's still on hold. Yet when the day that you come and visit EP and notice a new layout is actually up, I can't yet say. It might be tomorrow, it might be in a year. Either way, the staff behind Eurobeat-Prime are still throwing ideas around about the future of the site. New content will be out, when is the question currently.
Eurobeat as a music genre is very unique, yet very stationary in a way. People understand eurobeat differently and while others see the music as simple feel-good music, there are also those of us who see deeper into the world of fast beats and aggressive synthesizers. The general concept of our beloved eurobeat is music that will make you dance and feel good. Super Eurobeat, the compilation series provided by Avex Trax releases new material monthly which keeps the fans constantly craving for more. During the past few years online downloads have eased up the process for many foreigners and it has clearly become easier to obtain new eurobeat, which surely pleases us fans. EP sends a thank you to the producers and artists behind eurobeat who make the world a happier place for many of us.
Eurobeat-Prime is a site dedicated to solely eurobeat. The site initially started as a miniature site for my own fun and amusement, but it has gradually grown to be one of the biggest and most extensive eurobeat databases the internet currently holds. Eurobeat Prime aims to spread the message of eurobeat around the world and bring together people who enjoy this music. The staff of Eurobeat Prime welcomes you to enjoy your stay at our humble hold. Let's all make this year yet an another enjoyable one for us all.
Enjoy Eurobeat, enjoy Eurobeat Prime!

Manuel Caramori passed away at 40 years old - 31 August 2023
Last Friday, August 25, Manuel Caramori passed away. He was only 40 years old. The cause of death is currently unknown.
Manuel became a sensation in the Eurobeat music genre, many of his songs being put into the Initial D anime soundtrack during the 2000s. His song Gas Gas Gas became a major hit, in Japan and even more so later through memes online. Manuel was known for his high, powerful, incredibly distinct vocals. Manuel the man was a crazy, direct, funny, strong personality. For the past years he worked as an entertainer on cruise ships. Recently, he had been exploring re-entering the Eurobeat genre.
Our condolences to his family, friends and all the fans of his work.
