NEWS: BEDM005 HITS RECORD STORES!

Major excitement at Bedmo Disco HQ this weekend, as our latest label 12″ by Jimmy The Twin has finally hit record stores! Called “505 Funk (With an 808 Boom)” it features four shit-hot re-edits finely crafted and tweaked using vintage drum machines and Jimmy’s finely-tuned dancefloor knowledge. Lots of DJs have been saying nice things (see below) and we’ve had a great reaction when we’ve dropped the four cuts out and about. 

So, where can you get it from?

505 Funk (with an 808 Boom)” at Juno Records >>
“505 Funk (with an 808 Boom)” at Chemical Records >> 
“505 Funk (with an 808 Boom)” at Simply Soul >>

Others stockists will be getting the 12″ very soon, including (we assume) our old pals Piccadilly and Phonica. If you run a record shop and want to stock it (or any of our 12″ singles, contact those fine people at Prime Direct Distribution)

BEDMOFREE3: BEDMO DISCO – MYSLI/SMITTEN (FREE DOWNLOAD)

Everyone likes free stuff, right? Weirdly, we like giving away free stuff just as much as we like getting free stuff. At the end of 2010 we gave away a whole free album of free edits, reworks and a bonus DJ minimix. It was called ‘The Bedmo Disco Selection Box’ and it proved hugely popular on That Internet, with many thousands of downloads. With Bedmo Disco Records returning to vinyl in June, we’re in a good mood. Thus, we’ve decided to give more stuff away – this time a free, two-track EP in 320 MP3 format.

The included tracks are called “Mysli” and “Smitten“. They’re (sshhhhh!) re-edits we did a while back, of quite obscure disco-funk and disco tracks. We toyed with putting them out on the label at one point, but eventually decided against it. We were clearing out our hard drives the other day, found them, and decided we’d dust them down, give them a bit of audio polish and let you have them free of charge. Nice of us, eh?

To download, follow these vague instructions:
PC USERS: Right click on the below links and then select ‘save linked file’ (or similar – basically the option that allows you to download the file rather than listen)
MAC USERS: Hold CTRL down and click on the below links. When the menu pops up, select ‘save linked file as’ or ‘save linked files to downloads folder’

New Bedmo Disco EP hits stores

We’re rather excited here at Bedmo Disco HQ, because today our brand new EP of electrofunk/boogie scalel-jobs, ‘It’s A Synth’, went on sale.
Seasoned Bedmo-watchers will have heard the three cuts – ‘Love Jam’, ‘Down Shep’ and ‘Stone Cold’ – because we’ve been hammering them in our sets since the summer. You may also have heard them being played by the great and good of the disco/electrofunk/boogie/modern soul crowd too – DJ support has been excellent, with plays from the likes of Cosmic Boogie, Alphabet City, Krystal Klear, Flash Atkins, Greymatter, Marcus Marr, Solid State, Leftside Wobble and many others. As previously mentioned, artwork for the EP comes from talented young illustrator (and excellent disco DJ) Victoria Topping.
You can buy the tracks/EP at various download stores, most notably Juno/Juno Download >>
You can listen to the tracks in full on the Soundcloud set below. Get buying, get playing, get dancing!

Sell By Dave’s UFO Edits

UFO - at Dojo's in Bristol, Friday 22nd Jan 2010

This Friday (January 22nd) sees top Bristol night UFO return to Dojo Lounge for a boogie-licious bass assault with an interplanetary flavour. Here at Bedmo Disco we’re huge fans of the monthly party, which always keeps an open mind and boasts some of the freshest and most imaginative line-ups in our fair city. The residents, The Kelly Twins, are amongst the best DJs in our fair city, with a fine record collection that sees dusty old electro, P-funk and electrofunk nestling side by side with Italo, acid house, dubstep, aquacrunk, UKG, funky, techno and more besides.

Our own Sell By Dave is a big part of the UFO family, being a resident of sorts (he plays three of four times a year, usually). For this Friday’s party – headlined by West London producer Funkineven – he’ll be teaming up with good friend and crate digger extraordinaire Andy ‘Payback’ Clarkson for a 90-minute excursion into boogie, electro, P-funk and early garage territory. To celebrate the fact – and UFO’s forthcoming first birthday at Dojo in Feb – the man we call Sell By has crafted some extra-special edits for the occasion.

Since we’re pretty generous chaps, we’ve decided to let you have ’em, too – as 320 MP3s, no less – so you can play ’em out loud. We’re rather generous, wouldn’t you say?

So, what’s on offer then? Click on the track titles to listen and download…

Daniel Paul: Outta Space [Sell By Dave’s UFO Edit]
This squelchy, soul-flecked piano groover dropped back in 2000/2001 on Mermaid, an offshoot of the then just born Sonar Kollektiv label. The Meitz remix has always been a fave of ours, ever since we heard Joe 90 drop it at Level back in the Seen days.  Sell By says: “Volker Meitz’s version of ‘Outta Space’ is top notch, but it fannies around a lot. I’ve been working on this re-cut on and off for about a month. Feel the pianos!

David McPherson – You Can’t Stop! [Sell By Dave’s UFO Edit]
Originally released by SAM Records in 1982, David McPherson’s ‘You Can’t Stop!’ is a fine example of that style of US boogie that sits somewhere between jazz-funk and dubbed-out synth disco. The original flits between a number of percussive styles, with DJ-friendly breaks aplenty. About his edit, Sell By says: “With this, I tried to keep the vibe of the original, extending some of the dubbier sections, cutting out some of the vocals, and extending other parts to come up with a dub that gets stripped down but never dull. There are also a few Shep Pettibone style edit touches. See if you can spot ’em!

Wuf Ticket – Ya Mama [Sell By Dave’s UFO Edit]
Some fondly remember Wuf Ticket’s ‘Ya Mama’, a thoroughly idiotic – but charming – trip into electro/hip-hop territory from 1982. It was released on Prelude Records, most famous for the chunky synth disco of D Train, Sharon Redd and many early Francois Kevorkian rubs. Over to Sell By: “Ya Mama is an ace record – a proper early hip-hop diss record with a slick sheen that shows up its Prelude roots. The original goes on forever though, and to be honest some of the rap is a bit silly – especially the bit where Wuf Ticket are telling all the kids to love their mums. So, I stripped it down to the groove and teased in the call-and response pay-off at the end.
