General Ludd is Rich McMaster from New Jersey and Tom Marshallsay from Canterbury. The guys met at the Glasgow Art School, where Rich studied environmental art and Tom studied fine art. Their first collaborations were interactive sound installations, but that quickly gave way to all night music making sessions, some of which resulted in this fine twelve-inch. Both tracks have already become staples at Mister Saturday Night parties. Eamon tends to play the heady, “Brothers and Sisters,” and Justin tends to play the absolutely crushing, “Woo Ha,” but we’re sure you’ll like them both.
In addition to throwing parties and running the record label, Justin and Eamon are musicians and producers as well. They have worked with labels such as Wurst, Throne Of Blood and On The Prowl, and with the Subway Series releases, Eamon opted to independently press his own vinyl. Below you’ll find their discography. Click on the links for more information about the releases.
After several EPs with Harkin & Raney and a handful of edits released on wax via Wurst and Subway Series, Eamon’s first solo full production EP hits the shops this week on Throne of Blood. Roman Flugel and Brendon Moeller offer up remixes to the two original tracks – “Rigor Music” & “Electric Light”. You can have a listen below.
The guys from Dog & Pony recently requested a mix from Harkin & Raney to form part of a recent edition of their ongoing podcast series. This seemed like a good opportunity to pull together all the production work, encompassing original tracks and remixes for Wurst Music Co, On The Prowl and of course Throne of Blood, to date by Steve Raney and myself. Here in isolation is that collection of tracks in mix format to download. It contains some unreleased and soon-to-be-released material.
1. Harkin & Raney – Workin’ & Steamin’ (Throne of Blood)
2. Neurotic Drum Band – Robotic Hypnotic Adventure (Harkin & Raney Remix) (Wurst Music Co.)
3. Harkin & Raney – Happenstance (Unreleased)
4. OneAuff (aka Steve Raney) – Heavy Heady (Throne of Blood)
5. Corinne – Dream A Little Dream (Harkin & Raney Remix) (On The Prowl)
6. Harkin & Raney – Word To The Wise (Throne of Blood)
7. Eamon Harkin – Rigor Music (Throne of Blood)
8. Harkin & Raney – Shakes On (Throne of Blood)
Today sees the release of a second Throne of Blood EP from Eamon’s production project with studio partner Steve Raney.
Harkin & Raney‘s ‘Shakes On’ EP explores a version of deep and broody house which has caught the ears and gained the support of The Revenge, Mark E, Neville Watson, Soul Clap, Spencer Parker, Hunee and Craig Richards. They’ve also pulled in a top drawer remix from JG Wilkes of Optimo under his Naum Gabo guise.
