Looking Back On 2011: Eamon Harkin

1. Caribou – Caribou stepped onto the dance floor in 2011, and his arrival was most welcome, for it brought us a refreshingly musical and superbly produced set of 12 inch singles. His remixes for Virgo 4 and Junior Boys raised the bar and were the staples of many a Mister Saturday Night set this year. But it’s this remix of a rare African jam produced under his Daphni guise and released on his own Jialong imprint which was the stand out for me. I first heard this when he played for us back in March. It’s been in my bag ever since.

2. Four Tet – In a similar vein, Four Tet has leaned into dance music culture extending himself as a DJ and continuing to push forward with his own vinyl only 12 inch label: Text Records (strangely missing from most year end polls on best labels). Again the result is a breath of fresh air. We were extremely happy to have Kieran play the opening Mister Sunday this year (he’s back playing with us in February at 12-turn-13).

One More Mister Sunday

We couldn’t help ourselves. It’s been too fun spending our Sundays outside not to do one more Mister Sunday before we close up shop for the season. In two weekends, on September 18 (the day after we welcome Pépé Bradock to Mister Saturday Night), very special guest and hometown hero, Levon Vincent joins the boys for an Indian Summer Mister Sunday.

Toughening Up: Live Recording from June 26th

Last week we posted Ivan Smagghe’s mix from the party back on June 26th, held outdoors on a hot and sweaty Brooklyn night.

Here is the second part of that recording, Eamon’s closing set taking over after Mister Smagghe. A little more on the tougher end of the Mister Saturday Night musical spectrum this one features jams from Marc Houle, Superpitcher, Oni Ayhun, Aril Brikha, Levon Vincent, Harkin & Raney, Blake Baxter a few others.
