We are very excited to announce the Sound of Love International 001, a compilation curated by Gatto Fritto (AKA Ben Williams) and jointly released by Test Pressing and Love International Recordings. This has been months in the making alongside the guys at Above Board Distribution.
Gatto Fritto is a ridiculous collector and DJ and the perfect person to come on board for this, the first compilation in an ongoing series. Why did we choose Gatto? For me he sums up everything Test Pressing should be about. The music comes first and it comes from the leftfield, he has depth of knowledge and passion and finally is someone that spent his formative years on the dancefloor where it matters. Not only is his heart where it should be musically, but he brings it all together in fine style – from £80 records you only hear (about) if you’re lucky to 50p bangers. The music he pulled together for this compilation runs from dub through to deep electronics, house and techno and out the other side with the steppers – all with an underlying bass rumble. The tracklisting will be forthcoming but you can trust us when we say it’s a good one for both dancers and heads alike. Dave Harvey of Love International feels exactly the same which is why he made the perfect choice for this first comp.
We are having a launch party in Hackney on the day of the compilations release – June 15th – with Gatto Fritto playing a four hour set and me (Apiento) and Dave Harvey in support. A concrete bunker of a club and 100 people. It’s going to be a banger.
More news soon.
The Sound Of Love International 001 compiled by Gatto Fritto will be released on 15.06.18. You can pre-order it by clicking HERE.
