A Last Minute Chat

We just got this interview between Jeremy Greenspan of Junior Boys, our guest tomorrow night, and Mister Steve Rogenstein, aka the Art Corp and the man behind 12 Turn 13, into our mail box, just in time to share with you ahead of tomorrow night’s party.

Have a read…

Steve Rogenstein: You’re primarily known for your studio work and live performances, yet the Body Language CD from a couple years ago cast you as a DJ. What was your DJ experience before then?

Jeremy Greenspan: We [Jeremy and Matthew Didemus, his partner in Junior Boys] both started as DJs. Matt and I used to DJ at parties when we were teenagers. We had a radio show, which at first was mainly drum and bass, but fairly quickly turned into garage and house. Then we had a residency at a club in Hamilton [in Ontario, Canada, their hometown] at some point in the late 90s. All that stuff was long long before we had even thought of Junior Boys.

The Boys Are Back In Town

12-Turn-13 has played host to Mister Saturday Night on two occasions and both have been some of the most special parties we’ve thrown.

The first time, Kenny Dixon, Jr. stopped the music, and held one of his beloved records in the air and proudly declared, “See this? This is is VINYL. I brought this sh*t on the motherf#$king plane!” Then back in February, Justin and Eamon played two of their most well received sets to a packed house alongside a graceful performance from the one and only Larry Heard.

Well, this Saturday we’re back and we think it’s going to be another special one. The usual team are on board to make it feel like home. As always the DJ booth is set up in the kitchen on top of the stove; the dancefloor will will be surrounded by our favorite soundsystem; and the roof, which will come in especially handy on this warm (but much, much cooler than it’s been) July evening, will be available so there’s plenty of room to chat, cool off and wander under the stars.

Once again we’ve got a special guest on board for the evening — Jeremy Greenspan of Junior Boys. This isn’t just a celebrity set from a band you love, though. Jeremy is a bona fide disc jockey, having released a top-notch mix CD on Get Physical a couple years back and spending plenty of time around the world mixing records.

Sounds like a good time to us… We’ll see you then.
