Good denziens of That London, BEDMO DISCO are coming your way!
This Saturday, June 26th, we head East for another Big Chill Bar, Brick Lane session. This time round, we’ll be celebrating the launch of Bedmo Disco Records with a summer sizzler of gargantuan proportions. Taking over the decks after the World Cup Football game has finished, we’ll be mixing up a fine selection of delicious summer tuneage – think real disco, boogie, electrofunk, hip-hop, soul, funk, reggae, downtempo beats, dancefloor bangers, random rock, pointless pop and everything in between.
If you’re in London, head down for a few beers/rum and gingers, a bit of a dance and one of those ace bagels from the all night bakery! Mmm, salt beef!
Be there or be square!
BEDMO DISCO The Big Chill Bar, Draw Walk, off Brick Lane, London Saturday 26th June 2010 9pm-1am, free entry
Drum roll please! The first EP on Bedmo Disco Records is ready to go. It will hit Juno/Juno Download on Monday 14th June.
Here’s the press release:
Straight outta Bedmo – that’s Bedminster for non Bristol folk – comes a brand new digital-only label… Bedmo Disco Records!
Named after the website, club night and production outfit of the same name, Bedmo Disco Records launches this June with a very special E.P from rising star and friend of the family, Cosmic Boogie.
The Liverpudlian producer and DJ has enjoyed a stratospheric rise of late thanks to a series of much-heralded releases on Disco Deviance and, of course, his own Cosmic Boogie imprint.
Now he’s kick-starting a busy summer of gigs and festival appearances with a killer set of edits for Bedmo Disco.
‘The Disco Grinch’ is Cosmic Boogie’s first digital release, and it’s a belter. It features four wildly different slabs of dancefloor-friendly disco and electrofunk, all with Cosmic Boogie’s trademark eye for detail and ear for a killer groove.
The E.P kicks off with ‘Catch 22’, a sensual slow-jam that’s perfect for those ‘eyes wide shut’ moments. It’s sexy, scintillating and, frankly, a little bit naughty. If it doesn’t make you go a bit wobbly down below, we’ll eat our flat caps.
Next up is ‘Must Come Down’, a chunky groover that teases out a lesser-known disco gem for nine action-packed minutes. Think sizzling synth-bass, cut glass strings, heavy percussion and just the right amount of vocal. As we’d say in Bristol, proper job.
Bursting out of its third-place billing is ‘Calling Lenny’, an endorphin-releasing beast of shirts-off disco set to fire-up festivals across the globe this summer. With its dizzying disco horns, floor-slaying vocal and thumping groove, ‘Calling Lenny’ is sure to cause a commotion on any disco-minded dancefloor.
Rounding off the E.P is the digital bonus ‘Let’s Jam’. Only available for those who buy the whole release, it’s an intergalactic P-funk jam with more wonky percussion than your average crusty drum circle.
The goodness doesn’t stop there though. In addition, Bedmo Disco Records will be making another Cosmic Boogie edit available free-of-charge to lucky disco diggers. The frankly rather enormous and funksome ‘Talk To Me’ will be made available as a free download on Juno, www.bedmodisco.com and http://www.cosmicboogie.co.uk.
Bedmo Disco – breakin’ out the happy music!
