Big one from the man Xander Milne! Our UK buddy has been tearing it up on the production front with a grip of tunes getting praise and support the world over!

Turn on this latest one, “Like You Do,” and get whisked away to 1993… like a lost B-side dub version of some forgotten Crystal Waters’ tune that was produced by MK, this cut is a time warp to a darkened den when baggy clothes and shell-toes where all the rage.

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:

“TALES FROM THE HARD DISK” … ‘THE BONUS BEAT COLLECTION”

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!

Vulture Music co-hort, Xander Milne, has been keeping us in steady supply of exclusive edits to push these two, very exclusive label nights from the French-Touch strong-hold. This time coming with an original composition, “Berlin (Blow Your Mind),” is a moody, tech-funk chugger with hypnotic vocal riffs and bit-crushed rhythms… something that could easily find a home on Green Velvet/Cajmere’s, Cajual Records. Tweet to download, ya’ll!

Continuing his series of exclusive edits, our main man over at Vulture Music, Xander Milne, shot this to me just moments ago. Setting his sights on Detroit’s much loved, Moodyman, we get a funky, fresh, filtered house jam featuring Mr. Dixon’s unmistakable banter.

Continuing with the hype that’s building around a pair of special, Vulture Music Label Nights (one in London and one in Paris), our main man, and Vulture cohort, Xander Milne, drops another stellar tribute edit.

This time appropriating some spoken words from Knuckles himself, plus a little Al Green and even a special appearance from The Source… Xander concocts a funk driven, dance floor weapon that’ll keep those cold, Chi-Town party-goers hot during the looming winter months. If you happened to miss my posts of Xander’s other free edits, peep em here and here.

Fresh edit from Vulture Music cohort, Xander Milne. With the announcement of a pair of Vulture Music Label Nights, one in London and one in Paris, our man Xander decide it was cause for celebration and dropped this slice of turbo charged, vintage funk on the Discobelle family.

You’ll notice this is labelled as a “tribute” as it modernizes GQ’s classic, “Lies,” and takes a nod from Theo Parrish’s legendary, Ugly Edits version. A fitting tribute indeed! Follow the link on the SC player to DL and stay in touch as Xander will be dropping edits a plenty as the months roll on. There’s a party goin’ on, after all!
