MIX: CHRIS DUCKENFIELD LIVE AT GIRAFFE BOOGIE

 

We’ve got a rather special treat for the latest edition in our BedmoCast mix series – it’s only a live recording of CHRIS DUCKENFIELD’s set at Saturday night’s GIRAFFE BOOGIE party at Start The Bus!

Chris very kindly let us record his set, so we could capture some of the fun, excitement and downright debauchery of the party. We’ve been banging on about what a great DJ Chris is, especially when joining the dots between disco, boogie, house, funk and soul, and we reckon this recording captures that perfectly. Every time we listen, it brings back some hazy memories of the party and the characters that made it so special. Given that most of us were quite drunk, that’s no mean feat.

It’s not quite his whole set – sadly, for various reasons we only captured 1 hour 45 minutes of the two hours plus he played for – but it’s almost a complete record of a memorable set. You can listen and download on the Soundcloud player below.

While we remember, many thanks to all those who made it down and danced hard. Special shout outs to Deli G – local Bristol legend – who came and hung out with us and Chris, and of course Chris himself. As ever, he was a perfect gent and well and truly got the party started. Sell By Dave is still recovering from the shame of clearing the dancefloor (with a stone cold electrofunk classic, no less) before Chris came on. Ooops. There’s more pics of Chris in action from the night below.

MUSIC: BEDMOCAST 04 – AWON’S SYNTH BOOGIE JAM

For the latest instalment of the BedmoCast series, we’ve enlisted Bedmo Disco studio member, label artist and regular DJ partner AWON. He’s given us a vintage mix recorded this time last year – a slick, ever-changing synth boogie jam that boasts a mix of classic 80s electrofunk flavas, from singalong anthems and bona fide bangers to little-known cuts, obscure dubs and slept-on tracks. We reckon it’s rather ace.

No tracklist this time around, but expect tracks from the likes of I-Level, Freez, Krystol, Donna Allen, Rene & Angela, D-Train and many, many more. Think fat synth basslines, twiddly LFO “funk buttion” action, vintage synths and gorgeous vocals. Plus, of course, a dash of slap bass!

Awon is a firm part of the Bedmo Disco family and has been working with us in the studio, adding his musical skills – keys, guitar, bass, wooden frog, MPC manipulating – to our productions. Two of his tracks – one of which we had a hand in constructing/arranging – will be featured on BEDM006, due for release later this spring, alongside two cuts from Bedmo Disco (which, erm, he also played on). More about that EP soon, so stay tuned for info. There will also be a solo Awon EP later in the year, too, which will probably drop in September or October.

Awon will be joining Sell By Dave and Five-Srylez behind the decks as part of a newly-expanded Bedmo Disco DJ crew at a number of events this year, including Soundwave Croatia, the Globe in Brighton (April 7) and the next label party at Big Chill Bristol (24 March).

Anyway, enough of that – give the mix a whirl and let us known what you think. We reckon it’s lush!
