We’ve got something a little bit special for you this week – a new BedmoCast episode mixed by Bristolian turntablist legend and original Aspects DJ Nu Balance. Flitting between original boogie, electrofunk and disco with a dash of fun and soul, it’s a 60-minute journey though Nu Balance’s almost endless crates. He also shows off some of the turntable skills – scratching, cutting, juggling – that earned him a fearsome reputation in his days with Bristol’s own Aspects crew.
Nu Balance is part of the extended Bedmo Disco family, and will be playing with Awon, Five-Stylez and Sell By Dave at The Big Chill Bristol on Saturday April 21st (that’s today, kids). We’ll be upstairs “In the Study”, mixing it up, tag team style, from 11pm-2am. Another mate of ours, Bristolian beatmaker/DJ/producer Scott Hendy (aka Boca 45) will be down his golden era hip-hop party downstairs. Awon and Five-Stylez will both be celebrating their birthdays. That’s sounds like an excuse for a party 😉
You can listen (or download, if you know how – check your browswer instructions etc) to Nu Balance’s fantastic BedmoCast mix by clicking on the link below. No tracklist, but suffice to say that every track is a killer – and there’s plenty of obscure and forgotten gems amongst the beats, grooves and boogie basslines.
