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!
EP Issues (yet again) - 12:21PM 11/13/18
So yeah, the old code and old site is barely holding it up. After yet another save from Humbedooh things are starting to look rather grim. The site barely functions as it is and needs a lot of extra attention and care, which I personally won't be able to provide. What the site needs is someone actually knowledged on these things and with time for keeping up with the times....
Currently the site has plenty of php errors that are probably going to remain for the time being (so don't be surprised if things bork or won't work). Basically my plan currently is to retire from the domain and site. The genre and site could use a lot more love and attention, but it might be someone else in the future. If no such thing occurs we might see the site going extinct in the nearby future. I just wanted to post this so people will be aware of what's upcoming. We'll see where the future takes us, but hopefully it doesn't mean the site vanishing entirely?
EDIT: There apparently are login issues on the forum. The actual error for the forum logins isn't exactly clear and it only affects some people. Clearing browser cache or trying a different browser might help.
The road to Super Eurobeat 250.... - 12:45PM 12/15/17
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.
Christmas is nearly upon us. And unlike most of the recent years, this time around we aren't treated to a Best Of X album, but instead a brand new volume of SEB! The tracklisting has been revealed and the lineup seems really promising. We only have to wait till the 20th to get around to this present. The best present of them all?
1.Honey Hime - We Wanna Have It All (Japanese English Version)
2.Mister Tom - The Flame Of Love
3.Elly - All Eyes On Me
4.Ace - Burn The Night With You
5.Manuel - I Was Made For Rock
6.Suzy Lazy - Every Single Day, Every Single Night
7.Nikita Jr. - Come Back
8.David Dima - Time After Time
9.Dejo - Lightning Over Japan
10.Chris McRea - My Body Is Burning
11.Tipsy & Tipsy - Tokyo To Milano (All Around The World)
The eurobeat choo-choo-train keeps on heading towards heaven! The newest entry on the loved series is here. Super Eurobeat 243 is out and it's featuring awesome entries from all of the labels.

Super Eurobeat 242 is finally out! After an extended period in new releases the album came out in Japan yesterday. The album features excellent new beats for the fans. Highlights are the return of Nuage on an epic scale as well as Anthony McBazooka debuting under HI-NRG Attack as Lucky Boy. Don't miss out on this excellent release!
After what has seemed like an eternity, the forum got a facelift. The style is still not properly changed to what it was, but maybe we'll just endure with this basic one for a while. Report any issues you might encounter!
For some people the following point might be important: Password conversion Due to the utf-8 based handling of passwords in phpBB3, it is not always possible to transfer all passwords. For passwords "lost in translation" the easiest workaround is to use the I forgot my password link on the login page.
Also with the new and improved bot-prevention (attempt) tool. When the forum asks for you to login as a pop up, just type in guest / guest. Instead of your usual usernames.
