Here's an interview and guest mix from Mister Saturday Night/Sunday Best promoter Eamon Harkin who talks to Clubbers Guide New York about his thoughts on the NYC dance scene and his love for Optimo.
Harkin & Raney, Mister Saturday Night
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.
