Reasons to be cheerful: 1, 2, 3!

We’re feeling rather chipper this week, in no small part due to the fact that the weather’s been rather splendid (by Bristol standards, at least) and we’ve got plenty to get excited about…

1. BEDMO DISCO RECORDS ON VINYL FROM JULY 11

Yes! At long last, after months of broken promises, comedic cock-ups at our end and infernal production delays, the first ever Bedmo Disco Records 12″ single, Rocco Raimundo’s brilliant “Between The Sheets” EP, will land in select stores on Monday July 11th – that’s next Monday, kids! We’re genuinely rather chuffed about this, and we reckon we’ve got a bit of a belter on our hands. You can judge for yourself by listening to clips here >>

2. THE BEDMO DISCO RECORDS SUMMER JAM @ BIG CHILL BRISTOL

This Friday – 8th July – we’re heading back to The Big Chill Bristol for another Bedmo Disco Records party. Following the frankly rather insane and messy launch party with Cosmic Boogie and Jimmy The Twin last month, this time round label bossmen Bedmo Disco (that’s us, kids) will be hogging the decks all night long. That means six hours straight of Five-Stylez and Sell By Dave mixing up the best in underground disco, Balearic beats, proper house, nudisco, Italo, boogie, electrofunk, hip-hop, smooth grooves, party bangers and everything in between. It should be a lot of fun. As always, entry is FREE and the night runs from 9pm-2am. Have some of that!

3. THE SOUND OF BEDMINSTER 12″ DUE IN AUGUST

Our third “reason to be cheerful” is the news that our second 12″ single will feature some banging disco and boogie edits from our old pal Cosmic Boogie (yay), and two tracks from ourselves (as Bedmo Disco). Three of the four tracks originally came out digitally, but the clamour for a vinyl release has been insatiable so we’re sticking them out on wax. The EP also includes a brand, spanking, previously unavailable heavy funk edit from us called “Everybedmo”. We played it recently in Cardiff and the place went mental.  Anyways, this EP will follow “Between The Sheets” and hit stores in early August. Wowzers!

Coming soon: Rocco Raimundo – Between The Sheets (BEDM003)

Those who’ve been listening to the Bedmo Disco radio show or follow us on Soundcloud, Twitter, Facebook etc will already be aware of Bedmo Disco Records’ impending move to vinyl. As of June, all our releases will land first on vinyl, then on digital. It’s something we’ve been keen on doing for a while. Thanks to a deal with Prime Direct Distribution, this “dream move” has become reality.

The first release will be a brand new three-tracker of tried-and-tested edits and reworks from disco mystery man Rocco Raimundo. He was a big fan of our first release, from Cosmic Boogie, and since we’ve been keeping tabs on his developing production skills. A while back we asked him if he fancied doing an EP. After much to-ing and fro-ing with tracks, we finally settled on a three-track 12″. It’s called “Between The Sheets” and it’ll be out in the second week of June – just in time for our birthday party/label launch at The Big Chill Bristol (June 18, with Cosmic Boogie, FLX One, Jimmy The Twin and, of course, Bedmo Disco).

We love the EP, and each of the three tracks has been getting heavy rotation in our sets for yonks. But don’t take our word for it – check the preview clips below.

We’ll post more on Rocco, including a brand new mix he’s doing for us, in the next few weeks.
