About Eamon Harkin

Eamon arrived in New York by way of the North of Ireland in 2004, and immediately set about creating ‘Calling All Kids’, a party which played homage to New York legend Arthur Russell and all that he loved about the rich history of downtown New York. The party’s success catapulted him into guest spots at Motherf*cker (sharing bills with the likes The Cramps) and into a residency at FUN, at the now-gone Studio B, where he also actively led the bookings and production and brought a variety of talent through the doors – including Berlin’s boisterous Modeselektor, The Egyptian Lover’s old-school electro, and Escort’s new-school disco. These days, of course, he produces Mister Saturday Night and Mister Sunday and DJs the world over with his partner Justin Carter.

As a producer, Eamon has released critically acclaimed edits, remixes and original productions, on his own and with partner Steve Raney (as Harkin and Raney), for Wurst Music Co, Throne of Blood, Subway Series and On the Prowl. His music has been played by DJ Harvey, Optimo, Rub n Tug, Floating Points, Mark E, Tim Sweeney and Levon Vincent; and it’s driven many a party over the brink.
