Best of Super Eurobeat: from Max Coveri to Initial D

Updated on January 24, 2009

1) Max Coveri - Running in the 90's

Super Eurobeat

Super Eurobeat is the best music you’ve never heard of (unless you’re Japanese). It’s a form of extremely fast music which has, like Gabber, in excess of 120 Beats per minute. But unlike Gabber, it is a more pop friendly with catchy tunes and, (like its Italo Disco predecessors), nonsensical, repetitive lyrics. Some say it isn’t a Super Eurobeat song if it doesn’t contain the words love, fire or speed in it

When interest in Italo disco waned in the late eighties, many former European artists decided to throw their lot in with a new form of music, a music which, oddly enough found popularity only in Japan. These days, interest in Super Eurobeat (even in Japan) is waning, the genre has run its course. But for a while it was one of the most popular dance club music. Fortunately, to the non Japanese person, like you and me, this genre is fresh, new and offers significant rewards to the open minded.

Many anime fans will be familiar with Super Eurobeat from the popular anime, Initial D, which features a soundtrack almost exclusively of this genre. Initial D, for the first time, brought this genre to the attention to westerners. But its still very unknown. Being able to name a Super Eurobeat gives you almost as many nerds points as knowing how to do the Sexy Commando

Probably the two best name artists in this genre are Max Coveri (Italo-disco legend) and Dave Rodgers.

Here are my personal top three in the genre

Max Coveri – Running in the 90’s

Dave Rodgers – Space Boy (the lyrics are nonsensical, but epically so).
