Alan Braxe x Discobelle present: The Bonus Beat Collection – “Bonus Beat One”

Dec 10 2013

Discobelle, in association with Alan Braxe and Vulture Music, is proud to present the exclusive series: “Tales From The Hard Disk; The Bonus Beat Collection.” Here’s a personal note from Mr. Braxe himself to give a little info on the series:


Sometimes, it can be difficult to finish that idea you’re working on and so after many attempts (and lots of coffee) it ends up in the old “to do box”, locked away in the bytes of the hard drive or sequencer disk, bound never to see the light of day…

After many years, the reviled “demo box” was getting a bit fat and so I would like to share some of these “unfinished thoughts” with you via our friends at Discobelle. It’s a pleasure to present… ‘THE BONUS BEAT COLLECTION”

Most of the tracks you’ll hear in this collection have been done in 2 or 3 days tops and are not 100% finished. I figured, better to share them with you rather then leave them fragmenting on my antique hard drive!

Yours faithfully,

Alan Braxe

And here’s a little blurb about what you are about to hear:

“Bonus Beat One”

This “morceau” has been sitting around on a SP 1200 floppy disk since at least 2001… who knows how much longer it could have been there! I fired up “old faithful” SP and with all the groaning and grunting of those classic mechanisms, the beast sprung to life and spat this out. A little studio “polish,” a few new band members on the drums and I give you the first in our series for your own personal enjoyment!

Stay tuned …

So, there you have it! A steady stream of unreleased Braxe material for FREE DOWNLOAD from your pals at Vulture Music and Discobelle!!! We <3 U!
