We’re feeling rather chipper this week, in no small part due to the fact that the weather’s been rather splendid (by Bristol standards, at least) and we’ve got plenty to get excited about…
1. BEDMO DISCO RECORDS ON VINYL FROM JULY 11
Yes! At long last, after months of broken promises, comedic cock-ups at our end and infernal production delays, the first ever Bedmo Disco Records 12″ single, Rocco Raimundo’s brilliant “Between The Sheets” EP, will land in select stores on Monday July 11th – that’s next Monday, kids! We’re genuinely rather chuffed about this, and we reckon we’ve got a bit of a belter on our hands. You can judge for yourself by listening to clips here >>
2. THE BEDMO DISCO RECORDS SUMMER JAM @ BIG CHILL BRISTOL
This Friday – 8th July – we’re heading back to The Big Chill Bristol for another Bedmo Disco Records party. Following the frankly rather insane and messy launch party with Cosmic Boogie and Jimmy The Twin last month, this time round label bossmen Bedmo Disco (that’s us, kids) will be hogging the decks all night long. That means six hours straight of Five-Stylez and Sell By Dave mixing up the best in underground disco, Balearic beats, proper house, nudisco, Italo, boogie, electrofunk, hip-hop, smooth grooves, party bangers and everything in between. It should be a lot of fun. As always, entry is FREE and the night runs from 9pm-2am. Have some of that!
3. THE SOUND OF BEDMINSTER 12″ DUE IN AUGUST
Our third “reason to be cheerful” is the news that our second 12″ single will feature some banging disco and boogie edits from our old pal Cosmic Boogie (yay), and two tracks from ourselves (as Bedmo Disco). Three of the four tracks originally came out digitally, but the clamour for a vinyl release has been insatiable so we’re sticking them out on wax. The EP also includes a brand, spanking, previously unavailable heavy funk edit from us called “Everybedmo”. We played it recently in Cardiff and the place went mental. Anyways, this EP will follow “Between The Sheets” and hit stores in early August. Wowzers!
