Hi, folks. We’re going to try something new here. Instead of looking back at the previous week’s releases, New Music Mondays is now going to give you a peek at what’s scheduled to be trotted out each week on Alpha.
First up, yet another library joins the Alpha Music Libraries bandwagon…
New Library Alert: DBMP
The DBMP Music Library was created by composer and multi-instrumentalist Dan Beyer after his work on dozens of television shows. The catalog of music for radio, TV and advertising was created to fill a niche for underscoring and promos for which production companies were continually asking.
DBMP is conveniently divided into 2 libraries, MOMENTOUS – Television, and PERCEIVE – Advertising. MOMENTOUS has some great beds for radio, including some great rock albums. PERCEIVE is whole lot of catchy hooks and memorable riffs. All in all, both libraries are great for retail, with lots of mixouts and cutdowns. Check DBMP out here.

Featured Album of the Week
Every week we’ll dive into the massive Alpha catalog and showcase some unique albums that you might have missed: the weird, the wild and the different. Try this on for size:
Smashtrax 211- Practicing, Rehearsals and Bad Musicians 1
And you thought AML was all about GREAT music, huh? This album is funny as hell, featuring some of the most inept playing possible by the worst garage band in the universe. What will you use this for? Use your imagination, but tuck this one aside in case the time comes and you’ll know it’s here. Click here to check it out.
