Eamon and Justin: Weekends and Beginnings

Weekends_Beginnings_PromoMister Saturday Night Records is releasing a special mix by Eamon Harkin and Justin Carter called Weekends and Beginnings. It’s an 18-track mix that was recorded live at Mister Sunday in late August. The release dates are November 18th in the US, November 17th in most of the rest of the world and then December 10th in Japan.

Unsurprisingly it’s perfect for the dancefloor, a deftly mixed trip across propulsive sounds that can’t be pegged to one genre. It’s also perfectly listenable. Its levels of light and shade and shifts in tempo make it just as suitable for home and headphone consumption as it is for a party. That is, in many ways, the magic of what the guys do.

Across 77 minutes, Weekends and Beginnings takes in a mysterious chanson song from the 70s, Maurice Fulton’s shimmering, piano-flecked remix of Alice Smith’s ‘Love Endeavor,’ Motor City Drum Ensemble’s building tribal rework of ‘Leave House’ by Caribou, Adesse Versions’ latin jazz-tinged ‘Modal,’ an ebullient gospel house gem by Jasper Street Company, a 1978 dancefloor number from Tobago by Lord Nelson, the warm ambient loops of Bassclef’s ‘Ghost Kicks In The Spiral’ and a bittersweet, Paul Simon-esque closer.

Speaking of the upcoming release, the boys had this to say, “When people ask us about Mister Saturday Night and Mister Sunday, we tend to focus on the details of the events. The seemingly little things like a friendly staff and a springy dancefloor make a big difference in how good a party is, but the main reason we pay attention to them is that we’re trying to create the best environment for people to enjoy music.

Before we’re producers of parties and guys running a record label, we’re DJs. Everything else we do with Mister Saturday Night and Mister Sunday comes from our desire to play records for people. That’s what we’re putting forward on Weekends and Beginnings.”

Here’s the tracklisting:

01. Le Chanteur – La Passion des Collines**
02. Terrence Jerome – Believe**
03. Alice Smith – Love Endeavor (Maurice Fulton Remix)
04. Nebraska – Green Marimba

15. Ike Release – Phazzled
16. Recloose – Can’t Take It (Herbert’s Some Dumb Dub)

**The songs with the stars are only on the CD version of the mix. Everything else will be available on the digital version. We’ll probably also do a vinyl sampler of select cuts.

Mister Sunday

us-0608-598513-333445-backThe last outdoor Mister Sunday of the season is this weekend.

Remember those rules for the dancefloor! Here’s the scoop:

A FEW RULES FOR OUR DANCEFLOOR:

1. Please don’t take photos.
2. Please don’t smoke.
3. Please don’t text or make calls or any of that stuff.

You can do all these things off of the dancefloor, but when you’re inside the speakers, get down.

Finally, here are directions and some answers to other questions you might have:

If you want to use Google Maps to get directions, the closest address to our entrance is 241 37th Street, Brooklyn. The N, R and D trains stop at 36th Street, two blocks from the party. Both the N and D run express, even on the weekend. It takes less than ten minutes to get here from Atlantic Terminal on both of those trains. The R train runs local and connects with the F and G at 4th Ave and 9th. If you’re riding a bike, the easiest, safest way is to use 5th Avenue. Once you get to 36th Street, just go down the hill, and you’re a short coast away.

OTHER IMPORTANT THINGS TO KNOW ABOUT SUNDAYS

Kids under 18 go free with as long as they’re accompanied by a grown-up, and dogs are welcome as long as they’re on a leash. We take credit cards at the bar. The closest ATM is in the deli on the corner of 3rd Ave and 36th Street. No outside drinks are allowed, but fear not: we have beer, sangria, water, and lemonade. In order to drink beer and sangria, you’ll need a wristband. You’ll be given a wristband at the door as long as your ID says you’re of age.

The music ends at 9pm, and we close the space a little later, so if you want to hang and have a drink after the tunes, you can. Before you leave, please throw all your trash and recycling in the appropriate bins so the neighbors’ front stoops aren’t junked up, and on your way home, keep your voices low so that the folks in the neighborhood can have a little peace and quiet. They’re really nice for having us around, and we want to stay in their good graces so we can keep bringing you Mister Sunday.

Finally, have an awesome time.

Melja – Steady Mobbin’ EP

meljaMelja is Nathan Ifergan, a producer from Maisons-Alfort in France. Too young to attend our nighttime parties on his last visit (sorry, dude), he came in contact with the world of Mister Saturday Night at Co-Op 87, a great little record store in Greenpoint. Inspired by what he heard on wax, he made three jams that fit perfectly into the party. Eamon and Justin have been caning them for months. They work every time.

The EP lands September 22nd. You can pre-order it at store.mistersaturdaynight.com. Previews are down below.
