Tag Archives: Croatia


This week, we’re heading out to Croatia for Soundwave 2013, the latest instalment of our favourite Adriatic festival. We’ve been heading out there for the last four years, and this will be the third time we’ve played at the event. As way of a warm-up (asides from Awon’s brilliant set at Alfresco Disco on Saturday), we’ve decided to drop a clutch of new mixes inspired by the Adriatic sunshine.

We’ve called it the “BedmoCast Summer Special Series” (snappy, eh?) and the mixes cover a range of sounds and styles. The one thing that draws them all together is their inspiration: a Croatian summer. At present, there are three mixes in the series, all of which can be found on the Bedmo Disco Soundcloud page (we’ve also posted the set below):

Volume 1 – Awon’s Boogie Jam
A fantastic summer-friendly all-boogie, disco and electrofunk excursion from Awon, featuring some of his own tracks (and a couple of other Bedmo Disco-related jams), plus cuts from the likes of Melba Moore, West Phillips, Evelyn ‘Champagne’ King, Status IV, I Level and more. Want to listen? Click here!

Volume 2 – Sell By Dave presents Tisno at Dusk
Sell By reaches into his collection of Balearic gems for a laidback excursion through downtempo beats, dubwise treats, forgotten gems, well-known belters and much more besides. Think head-nodders and feet-shufflers for that moment when the sun begins to dip beyond the horizon. Oh, and old Andrew Weatherall remixes. Want to listen? Click here!

Volume 2 – Dancing Under The Stars
Another mix from Sell By Dave, this one ups the tempo for an all-night session dancing under the stars, either at the festival site or Barbarella’s Discotheque. Disco, afrobeat, house, broken beat, electrofunk… and lots more besides. Want to listen? Click here!

In other words, plenty of fodder for your MP3 player/phone/iPod/iPad (etc) as you make your way out to the sunshine, whether you’re heading to Soundwave or not. Enjoy!

Soundwave bonus: Pardon My Bedmo mini-mix

This weekend sees the popular Soundwave festival take place at the beautiful Garden in Petrcane, Croatia. The Bedmo Disco Soundsystem will be making an appearance, playing on Sunday night in the Beach Bar. We’re tremendously excited by the trip – the festival line-up is great, the people friendly and the forecast is for hot, hot, hot sunshine!

As a bit of a pre-Soundwave bonus, we’d like to offer up a brand new Bedmo Disco minimix for download. It was recorded a few weeks back for the Pardon My French radio show and podcast. It’s 25 minutes of goodtime vibes, quality boogie, sleek electrofunk, unreleased Bedmo Disco edits and a few silly samples.

The Bedmo Disco Soundsystem at Soundwave 2010

It’s with great excitement that we can now confirm our first festival booking for the summer… and it’s a stunner!

The Bedmo Disco Soundsystem will be dropping a hot live show with full crew at The Soundwave Festival, which takes place in Petrcane in Croatia from July 23-25. It takes place in the gorgeous surroundings of ‘The Garden’, the beach-lined peninsula famous for hosting the brilliant Garden Festival. Aside from us deviants, confirmed acts for this year’s event include Benji B, Toddla T, Shepdog and the Nice Up crew, DJ Cheeba, DJ Format, Bullion, Paul White, Smith and Mighty and John Kennedy.

It’s shaping up to be an essential summer destination for those interested in sun-kissed sounds, quality beats and nice vibes. We’re incredibly excited about being part of it. With tickets just £75 a pop and flights from the UK to Croatia dirt cheap, it’s a great alternative to UK festies.

You can find out more and book tickets at www.soundwavecroatia.com

Incidentally, if you’re in Bristol this weekend, Five-Stylez will be holding down our residency at The Spotted Cow on Saturday February 6th, with Sell By Dave spinning with The Kelly Twins at Box Social at The Bank the night before (Friday February 5th).
