20/05/12 w/ Apiento

London based blog Test Pressing tops the list of my daily online haunts. Run by Paul Byrne, who produces music and DJs under the alias of Apiento, the multi-faceted Test Pressing documents the past, present and future of Balearic culture while flirting with high-end design. It’s infinitely rewarding offering covers everything from scanned magazine articles from 70/80/90s music bibles, features on record sleeve designers Jean-Paul Goude, Barney Bubbles and Andy Warhol, taped BBC6 transmissions, audio documentaries, reports on new balearic inclined releases and a growing archive of mixtapes contributed by the world’s finest. There’s something in there for everyone. Paul focuses a lot of energy pushing other people’s mixes, whether it be from Lexx, Jolyon Green, Joel Martin, Phil Mison or even Roman Wafers and I as Ken Drone, so here we turn the tables and embrace those noises that circulate Paul’s mind while working at the Village Green studio.
