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!
The Very Best of 2019 - 10 October 2019
It's been a while (over a year!) since we had the last Super Eurobeat release, volume 250, which marked the end of the original Super Eurobeat series. People started to accept that there would be no more eurobeat under that name, and tried to live with that. We were once promised that Super Eurobeat would continue to release, probably only once a year. And where a lot of people weren't expecting that promise to be fulfilled, Avex surprised us when they announced the album The Best Of Super Eurobeat 2019. And now it's finally here.
The Best Of Super Eurobeat 2019 is a 2 disc release, with a non-stop megamix on the second disc, and 14 completely new tracks on the first one, in extended version. Well, maybe not 100% new, as some have been released through other channels or in previous non-stop releases. The last 5 songs of disc 2 are songs by Nuage, to celebrate her performance at the club event Agefarre on the 13th of October.
The Best Of Super Eurobeat 2019 is for sale at your favorite online retailers and in stores all over Japan. Avex will release a digital version of disc 1 later this year.
Super Eurobeat Presents Initial D - Dream Collection - 13 January 2019
So. 250 came, 250 went. Silence fell everywhere in the eurobeat world. Well kinda. Digital releases have been happening after the eurobeat world ending with 250 remaining maybe as the last final SEB (we still have rumors flying about maybe a yearly release happening, but that remains to be seen).
But amongst the silence something interesting has finally happened. A new Initial D album called the Dream Collection came out on the 11th of January, 2019 with a few new tracks included! So we still hear some new tidbits of our loved artists on CD form. Go check out the album and notice the new tracks especially from the tracklisting! Lolita's song is especially worth listening to (of course).

As you might have noticed, the end of 2018 wasn't the best time for Eurobeat-Prime. But rest assured - we moved to a new server, which should stay with us. We are back, better than before!
Some parts of the website were super outdated, and needed some hard work to get running on the latest web standards. You still might see some things that don't really make sense, but we're working on that.
For now, welcome back, and thank you for staying with us! Keep the beat alive!
The road to Super Eurobeat 250.... - 15 December 2017
So as most of the people have possibly heard from one or more sources. Avex has been letting us in on the news that 250 shall be the end of the longlasting series. These sad news are definitely not the kind of christmas present we wanted to hear from Avex, but alas it seems one era is coming to a closure next year. The remaining albums before 250 will not have new material, so sadly it seems 246 shall be the last album to feature new music.
What the future brings for the genre is a mystery. Hopefully the labels will find a new outlet to keep being productive, but at this point all we can do is be thankful for the masterminds producing this awesome music for decades. Eurobeat-Prime thanks all of the artists for their devotion to making the fans happy. Let's hope this is not the end of eurobeat.
