This week, we’re heading out to Croatia for Soundwave 2013, the latest instalment of our favourite Adriatic festival. We’ve been heading out there for the last four years, and this will be the third time we’ve played at the event. As way of a warm-up (asides from Awon’s brilliant set at Alfresco Disco on Saturday), we’ve decided to drop a clutch of new mixes inspired by the Adriatic sunshine.
We’ve called it the “BedmoCast Summer Special Series” (snappy, eh?) and the mixes cover a range of sounds and styles. The one thing that draws them all together is their inspiration: a Croatian summer. At present, there are three mixes in the series, all of which can be found on the Bedmo Disco Soundcloud page (we’ve also posted the set below):
Volume 1 – Awon’s Boogie Jam
A fantastic summer-friendly all-boogie, disco and electrofunk excursion from Awon, featuring some of his own tracks (and a couple of other Bedmo Disco-related jams), plus cuts from the likes of Melba Moore, West Phillips, Evelyn ‘Champagne’ King, Status IV, I Level and more.

Volume 2 – Sell By Dave presents Tisno at Dusk
Sell By reaches into his collection of Balearic gems for a laidback excursion through downtempo beats, dubwise treats, forgotten gems, well-known belters and much more besides. Think head-nodders and feet-shufflers for that moment when the sun begins to dip beyond the horizon. Oh, and old Andrew Weatherall remixes. Want to listen? Click here!
Volume 2 – Dancing Under The Stars
Another mix from Sell By Dave, this one ups the tempo for an all-night session dancing under the stars, either at the festival site or Barbarella’s Discotheque. Disco, afrobeat, house, broken beat, electrofunk… and lots more besides. Want to listen? Click here!
In other words, plenty of fodder for your MP3 player/phone/iPod/iPad (etc) as you make your way out to the sunshine, whether you’re heading to Soundwave or not. Enjoy!
