  1. Hi,

    does anybody know where it is possible to purchase digitally this one ?
    Silent Poets – Get Ready (Alpha’s Utah Mix)
    Been looking for it for a while.
    This is also my first comment here and i want to say:
    So happy Alpha is still alive and about to drop another LP!

  2. I can’t wait to get enough points to be able to access the loops! I want to post good content in order to get those points, though, to make this site more valuable to future visitors. (Just a gift back to Alpha for making my life more enjoyable!)

  3. One feature I would love to see is for the tracks from some Alpha songs to be made available once in awhile to members for downloading and remixing. Alpha could select the song(s) or poll members asking them which track they would love to remix. Alpha could license the tracks under a Creative Commons license that requires attribution and is exclusively for non-commercial use — that is, the track(s) can be downloaded and remixed as long as the resulting remix is attributed to Alpha and not distributed for profit.

    Remixes could even be vetted by Alpha and, if approved by Alpha, included on the site for other members to listen to.

    1. Yes this is a good idea, we do have the loops player for just this purpose with some alpha loops. Only some tracks will be available, the ones where a license is easy. Getting approval for some tracks would take months. We will let you know when some more loops are ready. The CCL is a good idea and will look into it.

  4. I’ve had a remix in my head for for about 5 years now, ever since I heard the Daley remix of Butterfly Cought. I think that the Cocteau Twin’s Blood Bitch would make a really cool mix. Unfortunately I have no recording expertise despite having been a club DJ from 1984 to 1993. If I were still spinning, that mix would be one of my favorites, of course i’d have to do it the old fashioned way, with vinyl. I’d love to hear any feedback on this, or better yet, someone actually make it happen, ideally as a new collaboration between 3D and Liz Fraser. The world is a duller place for lack of her vocal inspirations.
