Hold the front page! At long last, we can finally unveil the first Bedmo Disco Soundsystem mix, ‘North St Sound’. After what seems like an eternity – and a lot of time spent recording vocals, editing up tracks, adding additional production to existing tracks and the like – we can now present it to you in its full, 67-minute glory.
It’s been a bit of a labour of love, as you can imagine. It features two very special guests on the mic – regular Bedmo Disco Soundsystem mic man Coherent (The Journeymen, Crate Apes etc) and our recently recruited sometime compere Spencer Mizen. Spence is a newcomer to this kind of thing, but lent his uniquely Bristolian tones to the mix to add some local flavour. His refrain of “there aint no party like a Bedmo party” is sure to become a tradmark as we head out on the road in the summer.
Musically, it’s what you’ve come to expect from The Bedmo Disco Soundsystem – a real goodtime mix of party-starting tunes, from forgotten classics and dusty disco gems to wonky beats, dubstep-influenced jazz-hop, hip-house and kawito funk. And, of course, a string of bespoke re-edits and sneaky remixes.
Those who know us well will tell you that we’ve been banging on about this for ages. Well, it’s finally here – and hopefully you’ll think it was worth the wait!
