ABOUT ‘BEDMO DIGITAL 01’
Bedmo Disco Records is proud to announce the launch of a brand new series of download-only singles, BEDMO DIGITAL.
Featuring tried-and-tested re-edits, reworks and original productions, the BEDMO DIGITAL series will feature works from both label regulars and new roster arrivals, with a few sneaky surprises thrown in.
The first volume features in-demand reworks from Bristol illustrator-turned-producer FLX ONE and label owners BEDMO DISCO, AKA DJ/producers Five-Stylez and Sell By Dave.
The EP begins with FLX ONE’s “SAVIOURS OF PARADISE”, a ten-minute tribute to Paradise Garage legend Larry Levan. Taking a tune played by Levan many times at the Garage and giving it a thrilling new lease of life, “SAVIOURS OF PARADISE” is a tried-and-tested peaktime banger for those who like their disco uplifting and soulful. It has been a staple of Bedmo Disco sets for the best part of 18 months, and finally sees the light of day after missing out on a vinyl release earlier in the year. So far, DJ reactions have been excellent.
Next up is “EVERYBEDMO”, a sneaky, scalpel style extension of a little-known Eastern European funk tune from the BEDMO DISCO boys. It’s formidably sweaty, full of energetic grooves and rough-throated vocals. As the vocal says: “Hustle down and do a little groove!”
The EP is brought to a dramatic conclusion by another chunk of hands-aloft disco, the deliciously tongue-in-cheek “BASE CAMP”. Cut, pasted, rearranged, remastered and dubbed out by Five-Stylez for BEDMO DISCO, it’s a full-throttle ride through disco’s more relentlessly upbeat shores. It’s certainly more than a little bit camp.
So that’s Bedmo Digital Volume 1 – the first chapter of a whole new book of Bedmo Disco.
