MIX: AARON DAE’S BEDMOCAST

For the latest instalment of our ongoing BedmoCast mix series, we’re delighted to welcome Brooklyn producer AARON DAE into the fold. His mix, a delightfully fluid journey through starry deep house, disco-house and touchy-feely nu boogie, is sure to warm more than a few icy fingers and toes this autumn.We think it’s ace, and well worthy of your attention.

For the uninitiated, Aaron is a New York based DJ, producer and label owner. Alongside close friend J KRIV, he runs sneaky re-edit imprint Razor ‘N’ Tape. He’s also part of the rapidly expanding Deep & Disco family. He’s an excellent DJ with fine taste, as you’ll hear when you give BedmoCast 09 a listen.

Speaking of which, you can listen/download (alt+click on a Mac, something similar but different on a PC) to BEDMOCAST 09 here: BedmoCast 09_ AARON DAE

The tracklist for the mix is below. You’ll notice that it finishes with Only Children’s brilliant re-edit of “Falling In Love” by Surface, one of our favourite re-cuts of recent times. It dropped last week on Razor N Tape. It’s the label’s first digital-only outing and is currently being offered as an exclusive at Beaport. Buy it – it’s a wicked little EP.

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**
3. Gwen Guthrie –  “Nothing Goin’ On But The Rent” (Rayko Edit)
4. Superbreak – “Your Way” (Superbreak Edit)
5. Jimmy The Twin – “Bump & Boom [JTT Edit]” **from 505 FUNK (with an 808 BOOM), out next week etc etc **
6. Roy Ayers – “Love Will Bring Us Back Together” (JTT Edit) **unreleased bizniz**
7. Superbreak –  “Lovebug” (Unbreakable Edit)
8. Jimmy The Twin -“Going Home [JTT Edit]”  **from 505 FUNK (with an 808 BOOM), buy it kids etc**

MIX: BEDMO DISCO ON PASSION RADIO BRISTOL 24/04/12

On Monday, our own Sell By Dave hosted the latest edition of Bedmo Disco Radio on Passion Radio Bristol. We’ve rescued the recording from the Passion archives and thought we’d share it with you. It’s a typically groovy two hour mix-up featuring a range of disco, electrofunk, P-funk, boogie, rare groove, soul, funk and deep house gems old and new. Excitingly, it also features previews of all four tracks from the forthcoming Awon & Bedmo Disco original production EP, “B-Funk”, two cuts from the excellent Jimmy The Twin edits EP we’re releasing in early May, and two yet-to-be-scheduled edits due to be released on our forthcoming sister label, Bedmo Digital.

It’s all mixed together in Sell By’s usual vaguely slick, ‘floor-friendly style, and we think it’s rather good – one of the best Bedmo Disco Radio sessions yet.

MIX: BEDMOCAST 06 – NU BALANCE

We’ve got something a little bit special for you this week – a new BedmoCast episode mixed by Bristolian turntablist legend and original Aspects DJ Nu Balance. Flitting between original boogie, electrofunk and disco with a dash of fun and soul, it’s a 60-minute journey though Nu Balance’s almost endless crates. He also shows off some of the turntable skills – scratching, cutting, juggling – that earned him a fearsome reputation in his days with Bristol’s own Aspects crew.

Nu Balance is part of the extended Bedmo Disco family, and will be playing with Awon, Five-Stylez and Sell By Dave at The Big Chill Bristol on Saturday April 21st (that’s today, kids). We’ll be upstairs “In the Study”, mixing it up, tag team style, from 11pm-2am. Another mate of ours, Bristolian beatmaker/DJ/producer Scott Hendy (aka Boca 45) will be down his golden era hip-hop party downstairs. Awon and Five-Stylez will both be celebrating their birthdays. That’s sounds like an excuse for a party 😉

You can listen (or download, if you know how – check your browswer instructions etc) to Nu Balance’s fantastic BedmoCast mix by clicking on the link below. No tracklist, but suffice to say that every track is a killer – and there’s plenty of obscure and forgotten gems amongst the beats, grooves and boogie basslines.

MIX: VAST & BULBOUS – WRONGSPEED 02

Avid readers of Bedmodisco.com may remember a mix we posted a month or two ago called “Wrongspeed 01”. It was by our own Sell By Dave and featured records deliberately played at the wrong speed, with some 12s pitched down to minus 20 thanks to the wonder of Vestax Ultrapitch. We decided to make turn “Wrongspeed” into a semi-regular series, and asked a number of our favourite Bristol-based DJs to give us their own take on the “wrongspeed” concept.

We’re delighted to present the first interpretation from someone outside the Bedmo Disco camp, and even more delighted that it’s an absolute doozy. “Wrongspeed 02” comes from Vast & Bulbous – aka DJ/producer/tall man about town Tom Govan – and we think it’s rather fine. For those who’ve not come across V&B before, Tom has an intriguingly deep and varied record collection. He’s just as likely to turn up to a gig and play vintage synth-wave, Balaerica or Afro-electro jams as he is druggy disco, house, Italo or EBM. He’s been working hard in the studio, too, and his productions just get better and better.

For “Wrongspeed 02“, he’s delivered a mix that veers between blissful oddeness and druggy curiosity, with plenty of electronic obscurities in between. There’s slowed down deep house, smack industrial and even a dash of Ryuichi Sakamoto put through the blender. The resultant mix is entertaining, inspiring and, of course, more than a little bit wrong.

We asked Tom to jot down a few words about the mix and what he was trying to do. This is what he said:

“Wrongspeed 01 was an awesome musical statement. It was a plesasure to be asked to provide a second helping, although the construction process has been arduous. Sell By’s reverb heavy and dumpling dense ‘cement mixer’ wrongspeed style is uniquely his own, and as such alternative methods had to be invested in to gain what Deborah Meaden would call my USP (unique slowing point). Whilst in the previous installment a cement mixer was the preferred processing implement I have chosen to encase each of these records in a Jersey Island all butter fudge. Nearly 50% of the tunes have undergone the vintage ‘Peel’ style wrongspeed of 45 to 33 or vice versa and the rest, bar one or two, have had the ‘cosmic nudge’, up or down to +8/-8.”

So there you go. If that’s not enticed you to click on the following link, do it anyway – you won’t be disappointed (seriously – Tom is an excellent DJ with his own unique flow and style).

Incidentally, you can catch Tom playing back to back with our own Sell By Dave at the Idle Hands Easter After Hours at TB2, Bristol, on Easter Sunday (well, technically Easter Monday morning) – they’ll be holding down the second room from 3.30am until the close. Expect some wrongspeed selections amongst the late night grooves.

MIX: WRONGSPEED 01

We like to try and bring you new and unusual mixes of weird and wonderful music as well as lovingly-crafted selections of heartwarming dancefloor fare. Our latest offering comes from Bedmo Disco’s own bearded grump and former teenage ambient type SELL BY DAVE. It’s called WRONGSPEED 01 and is made up entirely of records played at the wrong speed (hence the title). We’ll let him explain…

Last weekend I had the honour of playing at the Headrush & UFO night at Timbuk2 in Bristol, where I was asked to play a “non dancefloor set” (their words). I’ve done the same thing for them once before, where I had the pleasure of doing a back-to-back weird-out with Tom Govan of Vast & Bulbous and I Feel Space fame (one of the most interesting DJs in Bristol at the moment, in my opinion). This time round, I decided to leave the Serato set-up at home, dig deep in the recesses of the record collection and mostly play records at the wrong speed – either 45rpm cuts at 33, or 33/45 records at -8.

It was one of the most enjoyable sets I’ve played for sometime. Although making people dance and have a great time is why we all DJ, there’s something great about being given the opportunity to just go a bit crazy and play interesting, unusual and downright odd records with no intention of getting feet moving. I spent my formative years as a DJ playing ambient, dub, downtempo, IDM and electronica, and used to spend countless hours recording weird and wonderful mixtapes, where blending and tune selection were far more important than beatmatching. At Headrush & UFO I resorted to that style, picking out records to create a mood.

The feedback was good and I enjoyed it immensely, so I decided to record a “wrongspeed” mix based on that set. It’s not exactly the same, but it does contain some of the same records, albeit in a different order. Some tracks have been re-edited especially for the mix, while others are just given a new lease of life by being slowed down, dropped at 33 instead of 45 or pitched down to -10 (my Vestax decks go down that far, unlike Technics). Musically it’s dark and murky in parts and sounds like it was recorded in a cement mixer – or at least beamed down from outer space (lots of pops and crackles, for some reason) – but it gets a touch more cuddly and, erm, Balearic later on. Hopefully you’ll enjoy it – it’s certainly not a bog standard mix of house and disco.

MIX: BEDMOCAST 03 – MIXED BY JP SOURCE

For the latest instalment in our ongoing BEDMOCAST mix series, Bedmo Disco Records artist and all-round sound chap JP SOURCE delivers a funtime disco rinse-out, featuring a clutch of unreleased re-edits. Here’s what he has to say about it:

This mix was originally conceived for a ‘disco only’ party that I threw with some pals here in Louisville (luckily there was no stipulation against the use of edits). Nothing here is particularly new, which was kind of the point I guess. It does however contain some of my favorite dance-floor throwing stars that I have been chucking out recently. I hope that you like it, it seems to me, a suitable accompaniment for shoes off living room action, or you can stick it on in the background when you get home from ‘the club’ while you’re showing off your Scrooge McDuck collection.

So there you have it: a goodtime selection made for dancing round the living room. What’s not to like? Oh, and if you’ve yet to check out his fantastic EP for Bedmo Disco Records, Get Your Bearings, point your browser here >>
