Welcome to our latest playlist, this week put together by Bristol’s Bedmo Disco crew.

Known for their love of all things funky and disco, the collective are a DJ tag-team, record label (Bedmo Disco Records), producers and party crew.

The trio featuring the skills of Awon (AKA Gareth Morgan), Sell By Dave (AKA long established music journalist Matt Anniss) and Five-Stylez (AKA Oli Ackroyd) and were a recent highlight of the Soundwave festival in Croatia.

Check out their summer selection below, plus a few words on each choice…

Maze - Joy & Pain (Live)

Everyone loves a good afternoon sing-along in the sunshine, and this live version of the Maze favourite - complete with an extended “I like sunshine and rain” refrain - has been a staple in our sets for years.

A Tribe Called Quest - Award Tour

A head-nodding, laidback hip-hop classic. Grab a glass of something cold and get your groove on.

Souls of Mischief - ’93 To Infinity

The most summery hip-hop jam we can think of. Classic hip-hop always goes down well.

MC Serch feat. Nasty Nas, O.C, Chubb Rock & Red Hot Lover Tone - Back To The Grill (Remix)

We occasionally disagree about records. Not this one. It never fails to get people going.

Marcos Valle - Estrelar

Quite possibly the most effortlessly summery record ever made.

Awon & Bedmo Disco - Check It Out

Shameless self-promotion alert! A chunk of sun kissed synth boogie from our Product of Bedminster EP.

Central Line - Walking Into Sunshine

Lyrically, this Larry Levan remixed eighties boogie classic is tailor-made for festivals.

Young & Company - I Like What You’re Doing To Me

If you’re after a soulful disco sing-along, look no further.

Jack J - Thirstin’

Every year, there’s at least one house track that dominates the festival season. If there’s any justice, this year it should be this chunk of hazy, delay-laden summer bliss from Pender Street Steppers man Jack Jutson.

The Gene Dudley Group - Inspector Norse

Todd Terje’s nu-disco classic gets re-invented as a chunk of spiralling summer funk, by the Wah Wah 45s signed Gene Dudley Group.

ELO - Last Train To London

Always finish on a high - or at least with something that drunken, smiling people can sing along to.
