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
05. Cobblestone Jazz – Traffic Jam
06. Mr. G – Daily Prayer
07. Anthony Parasole/Elgato – Quickstrike/Zone
08. Caribou – Leave House (Motor City Drum Ensemble Remix)
09. Adesse Versions – Modal
10. Jasper Street Company – Solid Ground (Tommy Musto Remix)
11. House of Gypsies – Another Worry
12. Lord Nelson – Shango (Daniel Haaksman and DJ Beware Remix)
13. DJ Duke – Sun Beats
14. Jurgen Paape – Take That
15. Ike Release – Phazzled
16. Recloose – Can’t Take It (Herbert’s Some Dumb Dub)
17. Bassclef – Ghost Kicks In The Spiral
18. Sam Orwell – Secret Nothings**

**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.

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.

Mister Sunday Returns To London

MSN_2014_Nov9_London-V2AAfter a long, hot summer of outdoor parties in Brooklyn, Misters Eamon Harkin and Justin Carter return to London for a second edition of Mister Sunday at Oval Space. The boys will play tunes to get you warmed up while you play ping pong and snack on food from local purveyors; we’ll draw the curtains to let sun stream on to the dancefloor; and we’ll set up the merch stand for tee shirts and records, just like we do in Brooklyn.

Black Atlantic, who are our on-the-ground partners in London, have the full details. We hope to see you there.

Misterburg in Central Park

msn_smorg_cp_finalWe’re teaming up with our friends over at Brooklyn Flea and Smorgasburg to throw a party in Central Park. On Friday evening, September 19, from 5pm to 9pm at SummerStage, we’ll set up the big, blue soundsysterm, drop Eamon and Justin into the DJ booth, and the Flea will roll in a veritable, uh, smorgasbord of excellent food.

Among the food purveyors are Ramen BurgerEl Super Tostadas, and Mile End. Plus Brooklyn Soda Works (our favorite) will be supplying non-boozey beverages, and the Brooklyn Flea folks will run a trusty beer and wine bar. Best part about this one? It’s free.

If you haven’t been there before, Central Park SummerStage is relatively close to the 5th Avenue and 72nd Street entrance of the park. Here’s a map.

Whether in Central Park or Industry City, we’ll see you on the dancefloor soon.

Yale Joins Eamon and Justin


This Sunday, Yale Evelev is playing some records from his amazing collection for the first hour-and-a-half of the party. Yale runs Luaka Bop, a label that’s been responsible for putting out an incredible array of excellent music over the past twenty-five years. (Os Mutantes, William Oneyabor, Shuggie Otis, Terror Pigeon Dance Revolt, Susana Baca, David Byrne.) He’s also been a musical mentor to Justin and is a generally great guy. We’re excited to have him.
