We’ve been working on a new version of the website (well updating it all) which has meant uploading a ton of posts and sorting bits and bobs out hence it all going a bit slow round here. We have set up a Facebook page which you can find here – which myself and Dr Rob will be overseeing so feel free to go and post anything of a balearic nature and ask about tracks or whatever if you ever need to find stuff out.
V2 of Test Pressing should enable us to do podcasts on iTunes and make stuff easy to find instead of this old school format we are running with right now so that’ll be nice. We are also working on other bits and bobs and hopefully we’ll get some more new stuff together soon (vague). Anyway, glad to see everyone is getting more mellow across the UK and we’ll be back soon with mixes from Main Stem, more pieces from Dr Rob and a clean site. Enjoy now.

This is a nice one. New mix from Adrian, head honcho of Finger Magazine, which features some brand new bits you might not have heard. Some new edits and 3 exclusive tracks – the Psychemagik remix of “that” track everyone is crazy about right now, a Lexx remix of Incarnations and a Riccio Remix of Prommer & Barck’s ‘Pictures Of The Sea’. Mix number 150. Wallop.
Finger Magazine are here. Check them out.

The Laser Magnetic crew have organised a program with the Visionare pop-up cinema this year for the East End Film Festival that some of you may be interested in as there’s a few documentaries on show that look right up our street. The Norman Jay one about Good Times is a classic and the Yellowman documentary is supposedly an incredible look at dancehall and it’s crazy mixed up world. If you want to go to the East End Film Festival website you can get more information on the whole program. Here’s the info.

If I had to stumble across someone on the airwaves late at night talking quietly and playing amazing music then Dr Rob would be him. And he’s actually doing it. Our good doctor is on the radio and I thought a few of you might be interested. He’s been working with the local radio station, FM.Karuizawa 77.5MHz, with the first show going out this Saturday (the 9th) and every Saturday thereafter at 20:00-21:00 (Japanese time).
As you know he’s got fantastic taste in music (especially of a soul, balearic, electronic and disco nature) and will be playing a mixture of old and new music, over a range of genres and tempos. Anything that tickles his fancy. As well as conventional radio, the show will be also be streamed at here and there will be a blog running side-by-side with information on artists, labels and scans of the more interesting record covers. If you get a chance tune in and get involved.
