Mister Saturday Night Records

Eamon and Justin: Weekends and Beginnings

Weekends_Beginnings_PromoWe’ve got some pretty exciting news. Mister Saturday Night Records is releasing a special mix by Eamon Harkin and Justin Carter. It’s called Weekends and Beginnings. It’s an 18-track mix that was recorded live at Mister Sunday in late August, and it’s set for release on November 18th in the US and Japan and November 17th in the rest of the world, just after our outdoor season winds to a close here in Brooklyn.

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.”

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.

Brothers and Sisters

Brothers and Sisters, the first full-length album on Mister Saturday Night Records, is out. The album is a summary of the sound of Mister Saturday Night Records to date. It brings together all the artists who’ve released on the label – Alex Burkat, Anthony Naples, Archie Pelago, Boya, Dark Sky, General Ludd, Gunnar Haslam, Hank Jackson, Keita Sano and Lumigraph – combining music made specifically for this record and tracks that have until now only been available on vinyl. The album is available as a two-CD set, and all the previously unreleased tracks from the album are available as a triple-vinyl LP. You can buy both versions, as well as a special package with the triple-LP and all the twelve-inches in our back catalog, on the Mister Store. The album is also available on iTunes and at all other good digital outlets. A preview is below.

Gunnar Haslam – Let A Hundred Flowers Bloom

MSNTEN001-Tracks

Gunnar Haslam is a long-time regular at The Mister. By day he’s a scholar of particle physics and signal processing, and by night he makes very heady music, some of which has made its way onto our very first ten-inch release.

Available for pre-order on our online store.

Keita Sano – People Are Changing EP

Keita Sano is from Okayama, Japan. He was born in 1989; he studied ceramic spinning in Okinawa for a short spell; and he is left-handed. He discovered Mister Saturday Night in the vinyl bins of his local record shop, which inspired him to make and send us these three tunes. We’re happy to present them to you.

Available on our online store.
