Looking Back on 2012: Eamon Harkin

Mister Saturday Night’s Little White Earbuds Mix

Justin and I put quite a few mixes out into the world in 2012. We made contributions to Resident Advisor, Boiler Room and Rinse FM, and a live recording from Mister 100 proved particularly popular. But it’s our mix from the beginning of the year for Little White Earbuds which we’re especially proud of. Focusing more towards the house and techno end of the Mister musical spectrum the flow and sequence seemed to really click.

Spiritual Jazz

Beyond John and Alice Coltrane, I’d never really explored the world of spiritual jazz, so I dug a little deeper this year.  The Spiritual Jazz compilations on Jazzman Records provided a great range of styles, sources and were the perfect way to delve further. They soundtracked quite a few of opening hours at the party. . . . Read on

re:ECM & Retromania

I’m a huge fan of Simon Reynolds‘ writing on music and popular culture. Rip It Up and Start Again and Energy Flash are definitive accounts of the emergence and development of the post punk and rave scenes. Each book does a superb job of highlighting the socioeconomic backdrop for these exciting new musical forms in turn helping the reader understand and appreciate the music for what it was really all about. So it was with a dash of despondency that I came to the end of his most recent book Retromania. The disappointment didn’t come from the quality of the writing, which was as brilliant as always, nor the quality of the argument, which was considered and on point, but rather the conclusion which the book leaves you with. That message in a nut shell is that modern music has run its course, and that in the last 15-20 years, with the arguable exception of dubstep, we’ve done little but recycle old music forms in an endless youtube– and reissue-fueled  stranglehold of the past.
