NEWS: BEDMO DISCO RADIO IS BACK

ghettoblater_1

Summer has finally arrived in Bristol (about time etc.), and ahead of a new period of Bedmo Disco DJ gigs, we’re returning to the (virtual) wireless.

This Tuesday (19th July, 2016) we’ll be making our debut on Soultrain Radio, with the first in a series of monthly shows. The team behind the station have been keen to get us involved for a while, to supplement existing shows from fellow West Country disco/boogie crews Feel The Real and Boogie Cafe (the latter helmed by our old pal and occasional label artist Jimmy The Twin).

Tomorrow’s show will feature Awon and Sell By Dave (sadly, Five-Stylez is otherwise engaged playing hip-hop for another radio station), will be broadcast live from the Soultrain studios here in Bristol, and will feature us dropping some killer wax from across the discoid universe.

We’ll also be looking ahead to Soundwave Croatia, which kicks off on 4 August at The Garden, Tisno, and features us lot playing records, as well as loads of other top notch bands, selectors etc.

So do tune in, as we’ll be playing lots of rather good music, and no doubt Sell By will be his usual idiotic self on the mic (“disco’s own Alan Partridge”, as a regular listener to Bedmo Disco Radio once famously described him). That’s got to be worth two hours of your time, right?

Tune in to Bedmo Disco Radio from 10pm-12midnight BST on Tuesday 19th July 2016 on Soultrain Radio.

NEWS: BEDMO DISCO RECORDS IS BACK!

bedm007_sleeve

Bedmo Disco Records is back! After what seems like an eternity (18 months, in fact), we’re returning to (virtual) record stores with a digital-only blast of boogie goodness from Awon & Bedmo Disco entitled “Product of Bedminster”. Full of delay-laden drum machine beats, colourful analogue synths and tactile, booming synth basslines, both tracks have been staples of our sets for a couple of years. We’re delighted to finally be able to share them with you.

Listen to lo-res preview clips below. There’s Awon’s rather smashing “No Return”, and Awon & Bedmo Disco’s “Check It Out”. You can pick up both when the EP makes its way onto digital download stores in April.

NEWS: B-FUNK 12″ LANDS AT JUNO

There was a rush of excitement at Bedmo Disco HQ this morning when our copies of the “B-FUNK” 12″ arrived. There was another one a bit later when we realized that it had gone on sale at Juno Records.

If you like it and would like one of the limited edition, blue vinyl 12″ singles we’ve pressed up, you better get over to Juno pronto. Click here to be taken there in a flash, by the magic of the internet.

If you’ve not heard the tracks yet, there’s a preview file on Soundcloud here>>

If you do like it and buy it, let people know – tweet, blog, play it in clubs, shout it from the roof tops, that kind of thing. Think of it as good karma – letting the world know about a record that looks nice and (we think) sounds good. We will, of course, be very grateful.

NEWS: JUNO REVIEWS “505 FUNK”

The editorial boffins and assorted loveable hipsters at Juno Records have reviewed our latest 12″, “505 FUNK (with an 808 BOOM)” by Jimmy The Twin. Here’s what they have to say:

“Bedmo Disco continue to thrill and excite with another release of shrewd re-edits, this time by Jimmy The Twin, who utilises his dancefloor wisdom and vintage hardware to tweak and tease classic disco tracks. “Moonspot Rock” opens, and delivers to fat boom of an 808 kick drum, working 80s electro rhythms at a contemporary house pace. “Bump & Boom” is a classic groove, with warbling guitar lines and horns that scream of 1980s New York. The vocal hook on “Foolish” bits at your insides, the entire track keeping you swinging around a ballroom full of flashing lights, giant disco balls and fantastically sparkling people. “Going Home” closes with some late night motorway vibrations, lamposts flashing qickly overhead and the smell of  opportunity blowing through your hair”

Many thanks to Aaron, Tony, Scott and all at Juno for the kind words.

If that’s impressed you and you’d like to buy “505 Funk”, you can find it on Juno (of course) here >>

MIX: BEDMOCAST 07 – JIMMY THE TWIN

To celebrate the forthcoming release of Jimmy The Twin’s debut solo 12″ on Bedmo Disco Records, we’ve got the man himself to mix the latest installment of our ongoing BedmoCast series.

Predictably, it’s a bit of a doozy. In his smooth and immaculately soulful style, Jimmy flits between classic, string-drenched soul, rare grooves, simmering disco and slick, dubbed-out electrofunk. As well as a couple of tracks from his new EP for us, you’ll find a bunch of other exclusives – details in the tracklist below.

Anyways, if you want to get cracking (i.e listening), click here (right click and do stuff to download file): BedmoCast 07_ JIMMY THE TWIN

Jimmy’s 12″ for Bedmo Disco Records is called “505 Funk (with an 808 Boom)” and features a hot quartet of heavyweight re-edits made using vintage drum machines. If you you’ve yet to check out the clips or want to know more, check out the “505 Funk” release page on this very website. We obviously love it, but the feedback’s been great, too. Check out these words of wisdom (well, reactions):

“Love it. The version of “Bump & Hustle” is very deftly done and “Going Home” has a real nice Theo Parrish/DJ Nature vibe about it”Soft Rocks
 “Just got round to checkin’ this and there are a couple of crackers on there. “Bump & Boom” is killer. Big ups James!”El Harvo (Futureboogie)
“Thanks for this. Liking “Going Home” best but “Bump & Boom” is also groovy” – Chris Duckenfield
“Really like this. Fave is “Going Home”. Been playing that loads of late.”Solid State, All Out War/All Out War Radio 
“Bump and Boom” for me. Really like the combination of the vintage drum sounds and the funk” Dicky Trisco (Disco Deviance) 
“Really loving James’ work on “Going Home”. The drums and synths work perfectly.” Leftside Wobble 
“Moonspot Rock” and “Going Home” will get many plays from me fo’ sho” – Alkalino
“Nice EP. Really liking “Foolish” – Matty J (Tirk/The Pool London)
“HELL YES! Loving these A LOT!” – Drop Out Orchestra

So there you have it, some people with great taste love it. You should go away and buy it when it hits stores. Not because they say so, of course, but because it’s ace. Incidentally, another of Jimmy’s edits is featured on the forthcoming Retrospective All Stars comp on Retrospective Records (that’s Ruben and Ra’s label). That release is well worth checking also.

Anyways, back to Jimmy’s BedmoCast mix. Tracklist as follows…

1. Jeane Carne – “My Love Don’t Come Easy” (Soulpersona Edit) – Jeane Carne
2. Dave Allison – “Nice to Meet You” **forthcoming on Timewarp Records**

‘Between The Sheets’ hits record stores

After what seems like an eternity, the first Bedmo Disco Records 12″, “Between The Sheets” by Rocco Raimundo, has finally hit record stores. The excitement at Bedmo Disco HQ when it first popped up on Juno was very real; it looks and sounds great and DJ feedback has been excellent so far. We’re delighted with how it’s turned out – hopefully you will be, too.

For those who’ve yet to hear the EP, there are three tracks – all top-notch, tried-and-tested edits from the mysterious 22-year-old-in-a-45-year-old’s-body Rocco Raimundo. There’s some seriuous, filter-heavy electrofunk bizniz (“Steamy Summer Sonnet”), a dash of heavyweight disco-funk (“Turns Me On”) and a loopy, filtered disco-houser (“Ridin’ High”) – all three tracks rock hard. You can listen to the tracks on our Soundcloud set here >>

So, where you you get your grubby hands on it? The following stores all stock it:

BEDM003 at Juno Records
BEDM003 at Phonica Records
BEDM003 at Piccadilly Records
BEDM003 at Chemical Records
