NEWS: BEDMO DISCO ON BCFM

Last night Bedmo Disco were guests on BCFM’s “Fourth Floor” show, a weekly two-hour dispatch about underground club culture in Bristol. Presenter Paul Conroy grilled Awon, Five Stylez and Sell By Dave on the label, our music and the true meaning of Bedmo Disco. We also contributed two 20-minute minimixes (one each from Awon and Sell By Dave) packed with unreleased nuggets and forthcoming jams. As if that wasn’t enough, Paul also played tunes that have influenced us and that made us the grinchy, beardy types we are today.

You can listen to the show again, and download it, by heading over to the Fourth Floor page at BCFM

The show is in two parts; the first part features a minimix from Awon and some mic chat, the second a minimix from Sell By Dave and even more mic chat. Oh, and Awon’s thoughts on Girls Aloud.

For the record, the tracklists for the minimixes are below…

Minimix 1 (mixed by AWON)

AWON – JOY AND PAIN
AWON – NO RETURN
AWON & FIVE-STYLEZ – COOKIES
AWON – BRING YOUR SWEET LOVIN’ BACK

NEWS: BEDMO DISCO GOES DIGITAL

Good news for DJs of a CD/Serato/Traktor persuasion – there’s a whole raft of Bedmo Disco releases dropping digitally over the next few weeks. This includes the launch of a whole new series of download-only singles. We’ll get on to that in a moment.

The first digital release to drop is Jimmy The Twin’s excellent drum machine edits EP, “505 Funk (With an 808 Boom)“. It’s out now and you can get it exclusively from Juno Download by clicking here>>  If you’re unfamiliar with the tracks themselves, take a look at our release page for 505 Funk here >>

Following that, you can expect to see the much-lauded “B-FUNK” by Awon and Bedmo Disco (BEDM006), probably sometime in the next few weeks. Keep your eyes peeled. For the record, you can keep track on our new digital releases by bookmarking the Bedmo Disco Records page on Juno Download. Remember, it’s still available on blue vinyl if you prefer wax.

As we mentioned earlier, there’s also the launch of a brand new series of download-only releases, Bedmo Digital, to look forward to. The series will basically showcase goodness from the extended family that we’re not putting out on vinyl. Think of it as a bit of gift to those who still support music, but prefer not to buy vinyl.

The first Bedmo Digital release features scalpel edits from FLX ONE and BEDMO DISCO. Previews of all three of the tracks from “Bedmo Digital 01″ are now up on our Soundcloud profile. You can listen to them below…

MUSIC: FREE AWON & BEDMO DISCO TRACK

In honour of both our recent “B Funk” EP and the imminent party at Start The Bus of the same name, we’ve teamed up with the good people at House of Disco – one of the finest disco/house/deep house imprint’s currently operating, we reckon – to give away a previously unreleased Awon and Bedmo Disco track called “Take A Bow”.

Said track was produced by Awon. It was re-edited by Bedmo Disco, then re-produced (after the original files got lost) by Awon. We’ve been playing it on and off in our sets for about six months and it always goes down well.

You can download it via the House of Disco Update newsletter webpage.

Don’t forget it’s B-Funk at Start The Bus in Bristol on Saturday (11 June), with Awon and Bedmo Disco behind the decks 🙂
