It’s been over six months since we released original music on Mister Saturday Night Records. We’re making up for lost time by releasing two records at once.
The first, above, is an EP from a music-maker that we’ve admired from afar for a long while – Nebraska. His 2011 album, Displacement, is a longtime Mister favorite.
About a year ago, we started to wonder, “Where is this Nebraska guy?” He hadn’t released any new music since the LP, and we wanted to hear more. We searched high and low an found his contact. When we got in touch, he responded by paying us a visit at a Mister Sunday, bringing us a couple pieces of vinyl (one of which made its way onto Eamon and Justin’s Weekends and Beginnings Mix) and, thankfully, sending us a steady stream of unreleased music.
A couple of those songs have become regular dance floor contenders, and we’re very happy to say now that we’ve cut them to wax, and we’re officially welcoming Nebraska into the Mister Saturday Night family.
The second album is from Gunnar Haslam, a Mister alumnus who released the first and only ten-inch on the label. This is his first twelve-inch for us. The loud cuts on the vinyl do these tracks proud. A bit more charged than his previous output for us, this EP, Margareten, is as heady as usual, but it aims straight for the dancefloor all the same. You can listen to clips down below.
Both EPs should be out around May 5th. Stay tuned.
This Sunday, April 19th, we’re doing another daytime dance at Shea Stadium. All the Misters at Shea have been stellar – great crowds, great tunes, and our soundsystem has been sounding amazing in the room. Tickets often sell out in advance, so we definitely recommend you jump on it soon.
We’ve teamed up with Boiler Room to start a regular Mister Saturday Night show. It’s a big first for MSN and Boiler Room – for us, because, well, we’ve never done a TV show; and for Boiler Room because the focus is almost exclusively on dancers, kind of like a sweatier Soul Train. The first episode was shot at The Lab, a regular NYC House Dance session. You can watch the show above, and you can check a background interview with Eamon, Justin and a couple of the dancers from The Lab here.
For anyone interested in the tunes in the episode, here’s the full tracklist:
01. Freedom Williams – Voice Of Freedom (Bass Hit Dub) – Columbia 02. Eamon Harkin – Innit – Wurst 03. Aphex Twin – Windowlicker – Warp 04. Farm Boy – Jackin’ Me Around (House Mix) – Trax 05. Trankilou – Atom Funk – Kif Recordings 06. Kerri Chandler – The Old Office – Downtown 161 07. DJ Duke – Can You Feel It (Pump The Parade Mix) – Power Music Trax 08. Phyllis Nelson – I Like You – Carrere 09. White Label – White Label 10. MFSB – Love Is The Message (DJ Romain Mix) – ITH Records 11. Michael Watford – As (U.S. Dub Mix) – Soundmen on Wax 12. Omar S – The Sh*t Baby – FXHE
It’s our first nighttime party in a long time, and it’s probably the only one we’ll do this season. This edition is at the ever excellent Silent Barn, which is a good place for a party not just because of its wood floors and good vibes but also because it’s a barber shop, record store and artist collective all wrapped up into one. Eamon Harkin and Justin Carter will be playing records from 10pm to 4am, the folks at the Barn will have a very reasonably priced bar, and you can get your haircut or dig for records all night.
Update: All tickets are sold out for this party, and we won’t have any tickets available at the door. We allow resales of tickets through RA’s ticket exchange, but ticket transfers outside the exchange aren’t allowed. (We do this to keep the price the same for everyone.) Because we use this system, we only honor tickets that are actually on the will call list, so just remember that if you are reselling or trying to buy someone else’s ticket. Here’s information on the resale system.
The ticket exchange is open until noon on the day of the party. If you’re trying to buy tickets through the exchange, just keep checking this page. Tickets posted by sellers appear as regular tickets.
We DO have tickets available for our next party. If you don’t have tickets for that one yet, go ahead and grab one now!
