Big in the game: Todd Terje, DSO and more at The Queen of Hoxton

 

We’ve always had a soft spot for ‘Todd’ Terje Olsen, Oslo’s number one moustache wearer, glocal re-edit king and all-round nice guy. He’s made some terrific records in his time, improved others and proved one of the most exciting and enjoyable DJs on the circuit. We’ve danced like punch-drunk fools to his sets too many times to mention, and played his various edits, originals and remixes to death. As you can imagine, we’re rather looking forward to checking him out again in London on Friday night, as part of an epic party from the Cosmic Boogie and Big In Japan camps.

As you’ll notice from the poster above, we’ll also be cracking out the Serato and laying down a selection of records, warm-up stylee. We haven’t played in That London yet this year, so we’re quite excited about that. But there are many more reasons to be excited other than a non-drunken warm-up set from us two West Country eejits.

Just look at the line-up: it’s full to bursting with serious turntable talent. Alongside Terje there’s the brilliant Deep Space Orchestra, one of house music’s most interesting production outfits and a pair of top chaps to boot. Chris and Si played at UFO in Bristol earlier in the year and they were great. Their take on house music is fabulous, and it really floats our boat. No doubt they’ll be comically drunk, too – perhaps a theme for the night.

Elsewhere, there’s our old pal and occasional Bedmo Disco Records recording artist, Cosmic Boogie. Stu really delivered – again – when he played at our recent party at the Big Chill Bristol. There’s also his mate Andy Ash, co-owner of the Boogie Originals label and a fast-rising deep house/slow house producer in his own right. And the KAT Records DJs, Phil Cooper and Ste Hodge, fresh from an epic trip to Croatia. The list goes on.

If you needed another reason to get off your backside and come and join in the fun, our own Sell By Dave will be celebrating his birthday on the night. Yes, he’s edged another year closer to his pension. No doubt he’ll be stumbling around the floor at 2am, grinning like a loon and trying to keep his composure whilst searching for a distinctive purple hat. Or something like that.

It promises to be an all-round great night. Tickets cost just ÂŁ5 (FIVE pounds) in advance, which is a bit of a bargain. You can get them from Resident Advisor by clicking here >>

 

To get you in the mood, our good friend Leftside Wobble has done an excellent DJ mix featuring some of Terje’s best moments. You can check it out below. Roll on Friday!

 

Bedmo Video: ‘Between The Sheets’ on YouTube

Some kind soul (our money’s on the nice chaps at Juno Records) has uploaded a couple of the tracks from Rocco Raimundo’s “Between The Sheets” EP to Youtube. You can watch/listen below. Remember, the record recently hit stores on 12″ and there are only 300 copies, so don’t sleep 🙂

‘Between The Sheets’ hits record stores

After what seems like an eternity, the first Bedmo Disco Records 12″, “Between The Sheets” by Rocco Raimundo, has finally hit record stores. The excitement at Bedmo Disco HQ when it first popped up on Juno was very real; it looks and sounds great and DJ feedback has been excellent so far. We’re delighted with how it’s turned out – hopefully you will be, too.

For those who’ve yet to hear the EP, there are three tracks – all top-notch, tried-and-tested edits from the mysterious 22-year-old-in-a-45-year-old’s-body Rocco Raimundo. There’s some seriuous, filter-heavy electrofunk bizniz (“Steamy Summer Sonnet”), a dash of heavyweight disco-funk (“Turns Me On”) and a loopy, filtered disco-houser (“Ridin’ High”) – all three tracks rock hard. You can listen to the tracks on our Soundcloud set here >>

So, where you you get your grubby hands on it? The following stores all stock it:

BEDM003 at Juno Records
BEDM003 at Phonica Records
BEDM003 at Piccadilly Records
BEDM003 at Chemical Records

Reasons to be cheerful: 1, 2, 3!

We’re feeling rather chipper this week, in no small part due to the fact that the weather’s been rather splendid (by Bristol standards, at least) and we’ve got plenty to get excited about…

1. BEDMO DISCO RECORDS ON VINYL FROM JULY 11

Yes! At long last, after months of broken promises, comedic cock-ups at our end and infernal production delays, the first ever Bedmo Disco Records 12″ single, Rocco Raimundo’s brilliant “Between The Sheets” EP, will land in select stores on Monday July 11th – that’s next Monday, kids! We’re genuinely rather chuffed about this, and we reckon we’ve got a bit of a belter on our hands. You can judge for yourself by listening to clips here >>

2. THE BEDMO DISCO RECORDS SUMMER JAM @ BIG CHILL BRISTOL

This Friday – 8th July – we’re heading back to The Big Chill Bristol for another Bedmo Disco Records party. Following the frankly rather insane and messy launch party with Cosmic Boogie and Jimmy The Twin last month, this time round label bossmen Bedmo Disco (that’s us, kids) will be hogging the decks all night long. That means six hours straight of Five-Stylez and Sell By Dave mixing up the best in underground disco, Balearic beats, proper house, nudisco, Italo, boogie, electrofunk, hip-hop, smooth grooves, party bangers and everything in between. It should be a lot of fun. As always, entry is FREE and the night runs from 9pm-2am. Have some of that!

3. THE SOUND OF BEDMINSTER 12″ DUE IN AUGUST

Our third “reason to be cheerful” is the news that our second 12″ single will feature some banging disco and boogie edits from our old pal Cosmic Boogie (yay), and two tracks from ourselves (as Bedmo Disco). Three of the four tracks originally came out digitally, but the clamour for a vinyl release has been insatiable so we’re sticking them out on wax. The EP also includes a brand, spanking, previously unavailable heavy funk edit from us called “Everybedmo”. We played it recently in Cardiff and the place went mental.  Anyways, this EP will follow “Between The Sheets” and hit stores in early August. Wowzers!
