This weekend: Daniel Wang in Bristol and Bedmo Disco in Brighton

Here at Bedmo Disco HQ, we’re very excited about the coming weekend. We’ll be out and about as usual, spinning records at two parties – one an extra-special UFO event at Dojo in our hometown of Bristol, and one down in Brighton. The latter will mark our debut in the legendary seaside town.

So what’s in store? We start with UFO at Dojo in Bristol on Friday 28th January, where the one and only DANIEL WANG will be headlining. We were lucky to spend some time with Daniel over the summer, and he’s a top man and a fantastic DJ. He’s never been to Bristol before, let alone played his brand of goodtime disco, so it promises to be an extra-special evening. Local globe-trotting party-starters FUTUREBOOGIE lead the supporting cast. Our own Sell By Dave will be joining good friend and killer disco digger LEGENDARY TONE for the warm-up slot. You can catch the two of them warming up for Daniel from 12.30am.

The next day – Saturday 29th January – we’ll be hauling ourselves down to Brighton for a bit of a shindig down in the basement of The Globe. We’re guesting at Rob ‘Alphabet City’ Fahey‘s regular Blacklodge night. It’s always great to meet new people and play to different crowds, and this promises to be a belter. We know a fair few people in Brighton, so it should be a great party. If you’re down that neck of the woods and fancy a good night out, head down!

This weekend promises to be fantastic, but it’s just the start. In coming months you can expect to see Bedmo Disco out and about round the UK and, later in the year, Europe too. It promises to be a great year!

Video: Soundwave 2010 remembered

Last year’s Soundwave Festival in Croatia was one of our highlights of the musical year. It was a great event, with a lovely mix of acts and people smiling and dancing under deep blue Croatian skies. We were delighted to get a chance to play the Beach Bar stage on Sunday night – as we’ve mentioned before, it was a memorable night.

We’re returning to Soundwave in 2011. If you’ve not booked your trip out there yet, we’d urge you to give it some serious consideration. The line up this year is immense – check the Soundwave website for full details.

The following video should give you an idea of what to expect – it’s an excellent little film, beautifully shot, featuring just some of the week’s highlights.

Bedmo Disco All Night Long at The Big Chill Bristol

This coming Saturday, January 8th, we return to our long-time Bristol home, The Big Chill Bristol, for our first party of 2011: Bedmo Disco All Night Long.

We enjoyed some fantastic parties at BCB in 2010 – including brilliant guest spots from Cosmic Boogie and Piers from Soft Rocks – and have some great events lined up for 2011. For this one, myself and Five-Stylez will be playing for six straight hours, mixing up the beats, grooves and tempos. It’s for this reason we’ve called it Bedmo Disco All Night Long, as that’s exactly what you’ll be getting!

As ever, entrance is completely free. You can expect all sorts of great audio nuggets, from the usual underground disco, boogie and electrofunk to soul, funk, hip-hop, Balearica, nudisco, slo-mo house, South African disco bangers, Afrobeat, Latin flavours, jazz-funk, party bangers and everything in between. We’re really looking forward to it.

Thanks to all those who downloaded our free Bedmo Disco Records album, The Bedmo Disco Selection Box, in the run up to Christmas. We’re going to leave it up until the end of January, so if you’ve not downloaded, head here to get started.
