Bedmo Disco Mix: Slo-Mo Bedmo

Lately we’ve been a bit useless at offering audio nuggets, especially mixes. Our last downloadable mix outing was an action-packed, 25-minute ‘minimix’ for the lads over at Pardon My French. We’ve been stupidly busy since then, barely finding time to record our radio show, let alone other mixes.

With Five-Stylez otherwise occupied over the weekend, I decided to lay down a solo mix featuring a selection of current faves, slept-on classics, forgotten gems and sneaky re-edits. It’s a decidedly horizontal/slow dancing kind of affair, hence the ‘Slo-Mo Bedmo’ title. It’s an hour-long, flits between deep house, Balearica, nu-disco, dub disco and boogie, with a few surprises thrown in.  You can stream and download via Soundcloud – a permanent download link will be added to the ‘mixes’ section here soon.

Our next Bedmo Disco DJ outing will be on October 22nd, when we guest at UFO @ Dojo. We’ll be welcoming ALPHABET CITY (AKA Black Lodge) to Bristol for the very first time, while our old mate CHRISTOPHE (whose ‘Make A Mark’ single on Redux has been getting props aplenty) is also on the line-up. It should be a great party!

Anyway, onto the mix…

Bedmo Disco down the Bank… plus new scalpel work

Tomorrow night (Friday September 10th) sees the public opening of a brand new Bristol venue, The Bank of Stokes Croft.

It’s a new project from our good friends Dave Smeaton and James Savage, the men behind our old stomping ground The Spotted Cow and, of course, The Big Chill Bar here in Brizzle. The venue itself was previously known as Mackies – home of boogie/electrofunk/soul/freestyle/disco night Ghettospheric – and has undergone serious renovation in the last month.

To celebrate the opening, Dave and James are hosting an opening night party, from 9pm-4am (that’s an epic), with various DJs from soon-come regular nights taking to the decks. Bedmo Disco will be playing (our first set together since Soundwave!), alongside DJs from Ghettospheric (a night we’ve played at several times) and Super Ultra Mega (one of Bristol’s new wave of disco/house/techno fusion nights – their residents are superb).

Entry to the party is free, so if you’re in Bristol pop down and check out the venue… and of course our set. No idea yet when we’ll be on, but it’ll be fun whatever happens. Here are the details:

The Bank Of Stokes Croft Opening Party
Friday 10th September @ The Bank Of Stokes Croft (84 Stokes Croft, Bristol)
9pm-4am, FREE ENTRY. Feat BEDMO DISCO, GHETTOSPHERIC and SUPER ULTRA MEGA DJs

Before then, we’d like to provide you with some new sounds fresh from the rusty scalpels we use at North Street Sound. Two brand new edits – one a 1984 style electrofunk growler, the other a 107 BPM disco banger. Enjoy!
