Do the first four albums on Yousuke Yasui's discography actually feature him, or is it just sloppy linking?

1992
Dec 16 Sing!! Street Fighter II [PCCB-00103] / Performer (as YOU)
1993
Sep 17 STREET FIGHTER II Collector's BOX [VHS] [PCCB-00124] / Performer (as YOU)
Sep 17 STREET FIGHTER II Collector's BOX [LASER DISC] [PCCB-00125] / Performer (as YOU)
1996
Sep 20 Tonzurakun Original Soundtrack [PCCGX00002] / Performer (as YOU)

Pretty sure it's the former. Yasui wasn't in the scene back then and I don't think YOU has been confirmed as an alias of his.

ahh, my bad, I was linking up Vocal tracks by YOU and the Streetfighers had shown up in the lineup.
Tonzurakun Original Soundtrack [PCCGX00002] / Performer (as YOU) is confirmed, at least the alias (no real name shown), I just got that disc. There must be a female Vocalist with the alias YOU instead.

Just curious, are there any other cases where multiple artists are using the same alias?
If we leave YOU as an alias on Yasui's profile, and then have a new female vocalist profile also with an alias of YOU, it could result in the same problem later on.

YOU is probably this chick from the group Fairchild http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tMG_sCP2k4k as Seiji Toda is playing Bass there also.

What happens is that the artist suggestion dropdown box will list both aliases, and it'll be in a bright shade of red so you know there's two or more different artists with the same name or alias.

Yousuke Yasui's Twitter account is no longer "yousukeyasui." Does anyone know if he just changed to a different name or ditched it entirely? I couldn't find his new one, if he has a new one.

I'm fairly certain this is a completely different dude: http://twitter.com/YosukeYASUI (born in a different place, looks different, doesn't talk about VGM or follow any VGM guys)

Sounds like Eschatos is Yasui's latest:

A bit of a late replay, but to confirm, the YOU featured on 'Sing!! Street Fighter II' (and later on the two compilation albums) is indeed the female vocalist from the band Fairchild. Her performance as such is barely credit-worthy (she only says a few words on one track) but since she's now a famous TV personality I thought it would be interesting to have an artist page for her.

I checked now and it's her on the Tonzura-kun album as well, so I guess the alias for Yousuke Yasui can be removed as it didn't seem to be a confirmed one?

As for YOU, I'd keep it. When I met him in Tokyo, he signed his autograph for me as YOU.

Mr. Yasui has officially joined VGMdb as a user! He told me he has over 1000 VGM CDs so I think he'll feel right at home among us freaks

I instantly fell in love with the music on the trailer, so I'm really looking forward to it.
With this final push, Yasui has become someone to keep track of in my radar.

Yasui confirmed for Xbox 360 Shoot'em up Ginga Force (Yack. will be working on that too, aparently)
M-Kai, the director of this game and Eschatos, seems to like Yasui compositions.

Trailer up now, and it sounds pretty OK! Five artists involved with this one, including Yack, Hiroto Saitoh, Ayako Saso, and Shinji Hosoe (if you couldn't already tell with that very Ibara-sounding track at the end of the trailer). I can't see how this won't get a CD, so be on the lookout for an announcement.

The game itself doesn't look bad either. Definitely looks more interesting than Eschatos and almost something like a very polished version of Nanostray.

Note: the trailer says "SuperSweep: Yousuke Yasui, Shinji Hosoe, Ayako Saso, and others," so more 'Sweepers may be composing too.

Can't wait~

I'd imagine that at least Takahiro Eguchi will be involved. He seems to be the most prominent Supersweep member out of remainder, at least if his involvement on albums and soundtracks like Nanosweep and Tekken 3D, etc.

If it's anything like ESCHATOS' soundtrack, it'll probably be a month after the release of the game.

Couldn't find any confirmation with a quick Google, but the recently-released Game Center CX: 3-choume no Arino definitely has some Yasui (and likely other SuperSweep) involvement. I'd recognize that distinct FM sound in Break Shoot any day. Unfortunately I couldn't find any clips longer than a few seconds.

I can't imagine there's any hope of a soundtrack release for this one.

Updated the Supersweep page on VGMdb. Yasui left some time in 2017 - unsure where he is now or the exact month of his departure.

Well that sucks. He was one of their most talented members. Btw, what's the source for him leaving in 2017?

This page from April 2018 still listed him as a member of SuperSweep: http://www.capcom.co.jp/game/content/rockman/message/

And he was still listed on SuperSweep's website one week ago: http://webcache.googleusercontent.co...&ct=clnk&gl=us

Saso san, at an in-person meeting last week, told me he left 2 years ago, although she may have meant last year (2018).

Also, from an email from Yasui to me in December 2016, which would line up with a general 2017 timeframe:

このままスーパースィープにいる可能性もありますが、来年別の会社に移る可能性もあります。

Ah, I see. If you hear anything about him in the future please let us know. I'd be curious to know which company he's working for now.
