Test Pressing Soundsystem (Apiento & Piers Harrison), Andy Bainbridge (Not An Animal Records)
One more swing of the axe people to wrap up our summer gauntlet, before burying our heads in the sand and licking the glitter from our wounds for a couple of months. For this, we’ll be returning to the scene of the crime for our last few label parties to The Lion & Lamb where our guest for the evening is the highly respected Apiento & Piers Harrison aka The Test Pressing Soundsystem
Piers is one-quarter of Soft Rocks, a disco combo originally from Brighton with a relaxed attitude to copyright law. They released a slew of edits, recorded an LP for Lovefingers’ ESP Institute and toured the world DJ’ing from Russia to Japan and Australia and beyond. Piers has also carried out the remix and re-edit work for Emotional Response / Rescue. He co-runs Mysticisms Records which releases both old and new music from across the house spectrum. Gong forwards whilst digging deep.
Apiento, a.k.a Paul Byrne runs the Test Pressing website, has A&R’d various labels over the years – from Junior Boy’s Own to International Feel and produces and releases music on Golf Channel, Leng, Claremont56, Andy Blake's World Unknown and Phantom Island out of Switzerland. He’s also part of Open Space alongside Sade’s Andrew Hale and has a radio show on London’s infamous NTS (now joined by Piers) and likes to keep going forwards.
Together they make up the Test Pressing Soundsystem playing dance music fully across the board. Dub. House. Disco. x.
Not an Animal residents will be warming things up for the night before handing it over to Apieneto & Piers
