Around 40 Eurobeat – Pre-release Info

Around 40 Eurobeat
Release Date: 7/22/09
Price: 2381 yen

R40 is a relatively new Japanese term that’s short for “Around 40.” Basically, it refers to people who are around the age of 40. The term is used to market items to people in a specific age group. For instance, a couple of years ago EMI released a compilation titled Disco R35 that featured music that people in their 30’s grew up with (80’s music, for the most part).

R40 Eurobeat features classic 80’s eurobeat that’s been repeated again and again and again on other compilations. It’d be cool if EMI remixed these like they did with the classics on the Happy Paradise series, but it seems they’re far more content going the cheap route.

    My favorite is still Disco Mega Party!, which had 40 repeats on one disc. Only thing it was missing was some Rick Astley.
