NEWS: THREE MORE CHANCES TO DANCE (LIKE YOU MEAN IT)

bdp_009_BC_191214_webxl

The festive period is upon us, and that means a whole load more chances to “dance like you mean it”, as Bedmo Disco hit the Christmas and New Year period hard. This time, there are no headline guest DJs in tow – just Awon, Sell By Dave and Five-Stylez mixing up the good time grooves, obscure disco and boogie jams, unreleased re-edits and secret weapons.

Here’s what we’re up to over the next few weeks…

FRIDAY 19th DECEMBER – BEDMO DISCO PRESENTS CHRISTMAS PARTY @ BIG CHILL BRISTOL
Six hours of us mixing it up for your drinking and dancing pleasure. Expect a mixed-up, floor-friendly selection of gems from the depths of our ever-growing record collections. There’s free entry to this one all night long… get in!

WEDNESDAY 31st DECEMBER – COLSTON HALL NYE SWING DANCE (MAISON PARADISO COCKTAIL LOUNGE) @ COLSTON HALL, BRISTOL
This New Year’s Eve, we’ll be providing the music in The Lantern, the smaller venue attached to Colston Hall, as part of their “NYE Swing Dance”. We’ve teamed up with Maison Paradiso and will be keeping things lively in their room, dropping a party-friendly mix of disco, boogie, house, classics and occasional random drunken selections.

SATURDAY 3rd JANUARY, 2015 – BEDMO DISCO  @ BIG CHILL BRISTOL
To celebrate the start of our new Saturday night residency at Big Chill Bristol (the first Saturday of every month, kids) we’ll be pitching up at our favourite city centre watering hole-turned-intimate club space and playing lots of great music to get you going in 2015. New Year, new you… same old Bedmo Disco!

Join us at least one of these… we can guarantee great music and good times!

NEWS: BEDMO DISCO GOES EAST

BD_Plough_May13_WebXL

Yep – a week on Saturday (18th May) we’re starting what we hope will be a series of regular shindigs at our favourite boozer, the excellent Plough Inn in Easton. It’s owned by some good friends of ours, and we couldn’t think of anywhere better to have a party.

It ticks all the boxes – great crowd of locals, nice soundsystem, decent back yard, and a love of a good party. What more could you want? It also marks our debut “eastside”, far away from our Bedminster roots. How times have changed, eh?

We’ll post more about this one next week, but the basics are on the poster. Come down – entry is free, booze is relatively cheap and the sounds will, of course, be righteous. Oh, and Deli G will be joining us again, playing on his “home patch” for the first time in ages. Bring it on!

PS – Check the dates page for updated news of forthcoming parties and appearances!

NEWS: BEDMO DISCO’S BIG EASTER

stb_kellys_ready

Phew, what a scorcher! Apologies for coming across all tabloid, but that single, silly phrase pretty much sums up our feelings about Saturday’s night’s GIRAFFE BOOGIE party at Start The Bus.

We were hoping for a good ‘un, but nothing could have prepared us for what was one of our most memorable parties for a while. The dancefloor began to fill up at 10.30, and it just got better and better from there. What was most memorable – apart from the ace sets from the Kelly Twins (pictured above) and Legendary Tone – was the all-round good-natured vibe of the crowd, their appreciation for the music and the amount of positivity on display. It was also nice to meet a few new faces (a party from the well-loved Boogie Cartel night in London, some chap who asked us to platy some krautrock, a woman who claimed we were ‘bringing back the spirit of Fruity Antics’ – that’s a near legendary Bristol house night for those from outside of our fair city) and welcome back some old ones (Al Dare, Jimmy The Twin etc). So all in all, a great night – thanks to all those who came down and made it special.

With Easter fast approaching, it’s a busy time here at North Street Sound (that’s Bedmo Disco HQ to newcomers). Because of that. we have a load of things to tell you about. We’ll try and keep it brief, and have used handy subheadings for ease of browsing/because it looks nicer.

MELODICA RADIO SHOW BRISTOL SPECIAL

A couple of weeks back legendary DJ, producer, journalist and musician Chris Coco headed down to Bristol to play at Big Chill Bristol. While there, he recorded a special edition of his popular Melodica Radio Show. The show features interviews with a bunch of Bristol bods – including our pals Suisse Tony, Ben Dubisson (A Hundred Strong) and Chris Farrell from Idle Hands – with accompanying music. It begins with Chris having a chat with our own bearded disco grinch, Sell By Dave, about Bedmo Disco Records.

It’s a very entertaining show, which you can listen to on Chris Coco’s Mixcloud profile

 

BEDMO DISCO EASTER SPECIAL AT BIG CHILL BRISTOL

Yes, we’re back at Big Chill Bristol for another smashing Bedmo Disco bash on Good Friday (29th March). We begin at 9pm and go on until 3am. Entry is free, the whole crew will be representing, and hot Bristol house producer (and all round top man) GramRCY will be playing upstairs In The Study. Poster below.

GOOD VIBRATIONS AT THE WHITE BEAR

Yep, there’s a second dose of Bedmo Disco DJ action this Easter weekend, as we head to The White Bear on St Michael’s Hill to host the Boogie Bar at Sean McCabe and Ben Daley’s Good Vibrations party. We’re stoked to have been asked along, especially as it’s an old-fashioned all-dayer (starting at 3pm, no less) in one of Bristol’s best boozers. Flyer below – more to come later in the week. Tickets are £10 in advance (a bargain since it’s an all-dayer and the main room guests come from Local Talk Records and Southport Weekender), and have been selling well. If you want to come along, don’t sleep!

Phew! That’s all for now – we’re off for a lie down. Remember, you can read our news first on Twitter and Facebook, so follow or like us. We don’t bite!
