In June 2010, Bedmo Disco Records launched with a digital-only EP from longtime friend of the family COSMIC BOOGIE. The four-track single was called “THE DISCO GRINCH“, and gained plays and kind comments from all manner of disco selectors.
RELEASE INFORMATION: THE DISCO GRINCH EP
Straight outta Bedmo – that’s Bedminster for non Bristol folk – comes a brand new digital-only label… Bedmo Disco Records!
Named after the website, club night and production outfit of the same name, Bedmo Disco Records launches this June with a very special E.P from rising star and friend of the family, Cosmic Boogie.
The Liverpudlian producer and DJ has enjoyed a stratospheric rise of late thanks to a series of much-heralded releases on Disco Deviance and, of course, his own Cosmic Boogie imprint.
Now he’s kick-starting a busy summer of gigs and festival appearances with a killer set of edits for Bedmo Disco.
‘The Disco Grinch’ is Cosmic Boogie’s first digital release, and it’s a belter. It features four wildly different slabs of dancefloor-friendly disco and electrofunk, all with Cosmic Boogie’s trademark eye for detail and ear for a killer groove.
The E.P kicks off with ‘Catch 22’, a sensual slow-jam that’s perfect for those ‘eyes wide shut’ moments. It’s sexy, scintillating and, frankly, a little bit naughty. If it doesn’t make you go a bit wobbly down below, we’ll eat our flat caps.
Next up is ‘Must Come Down’, a chunky groover that teases out a lesser-known disco gem for nine action-packed minutes. Think sizzling synth-bass, cut glass strings, heavy percussion and just the right amount of vocal. As we’d say in Bristol, proper job.
Bursting out of its third-place billing is ‘Calling Lenny’, an endorphin-releasing beast of shirts-off disco set to fire-up festivals across the globe this summer. With its dizzying disco horns, floor-slaying vocal and thumping groove, ‘Calling Lenny’ is sure to cause a commotion on any disco-minded dancefloor.
Rounding off the E.P is the digital bonus ‘Let’s Jam’. Only available for those who buy the whole release, it’s an intergalactic P-funk jam with more wonky percussion than your average crusty drum circle.
ARTIST BIOGRAPHY: COSMIC BOOGIE
Cosmic Boogie has come a long way in a short space of time. Since launching his own acclaimed re-edit imprint in 2009, Liverpool-based DJ/producer Stu Robinson has enjoyed a steady rise – and he’s no intention of putting on the brakes just yet.
After releasing a string of well-received disco, boogie and deep funk re-edits and reworks on Disco Deviance, Whiskey Disco, Bedmo Disco Records and his own Cosmic Boogie imprint, Robinson turned his attention to original production in 2010. Since then, he’s been in demand as a remixer, reworking tracks from the likes of Tal M Klein, Deep Space Orchestra and Sleazy McQueen. His remix of Frank Booker for Wonderful Noise, Japan, sold out within a week.
In early 2011, Robinson released his first original material, “Fast & Loose”, as part of the first EP on his brand new label, Boogie Originals. Designed to release great new house and disco music by up-and-coming artists, Boogie Originals has been widely tipped as a label to watch.
Alongside running Boogie Originals (with partner Andy Ash) and the Cosmic Boogie re-edit imprint, Robinson is also working closely with the acclaimed Wolf Music label. His first official DJ mix is set for release on Wolf Music in spring 2011.
On the back of the success of his productions, record labels and remixes, Cosmic Boogie has become an in-demand DJ, with regular dates across Europe. Over the past 12 months he has played headline slots everywhere from Helsinki and Warsaw to London and Budapest – and, of course, his hometown of Liverpool. His DJ style reflects his productions, combining slo-mo boogie, groove-laden disco, deep house, deep funk and soul. Adept at reading the situation thanks to a decade-plus experience behind the decks, he prides himself on getting a crowd moving – whether they’re into 100 BPM groovers or hands-in-the-air anthems.
