To the people that grew up on the old guard of eurobeat, ie. the early to late 100's & have stopped following the series ~ I've only one thing to say to you:
★ You really don't know what you're missing!
★ What a great time to be into eurobeat!
I can agree but not entirely. Not all of them stopped, but anyone who really did, could try to check newer releases. In fact, tons of various styles are possible to find from SEB Vol. 10x to SEB Vol. 19x. People which grown up, listened to the old Eurobeat teams in their youth just haven't time to be a fan and they have some other requirements in the music, what doesn't offer a current part of genre.
Next, next, next, next, next, next, next, next, next, next......... song.
A song is for me privately, to feel a personal pleasure. But what has the publisher and each label for the wide community, publicity, to pull out a finger and show "Here is our world, come and look, watch, read !" ?
What if they are active like today, mostly when is a premiere of news?
- official but empty, anonymous fan pages with logo and eye-catching background image, more anonymous projects and artists. Accidentally posts tell not much about the real musical life itself or showing again a song or a link...
The most significant difference I suggested between mine in practise private fan pages and the rest of them is that, what many fans miss and can't find nowadays, what is the reason of tiredness, weariness.
Such fans like you noticed, which grew up before SEB Vol. 100 need informations, curiosities, even trivial descriptions, pictures, they love to know what is really going on around with artists and what happened in the past, they need true big events. Not only records with dozens names without faces, identity and history.
Unfortunately over the years you can admire just the art covers, if you don't follow those first record companies and their separated periods of domination in Eurobeat, when these details had primary importance.
This is not already about how Eurobeat sounds, but what the labels may prepare, what kinds of entertainment to hold and interest us.
