Part of the Farr Festival 2017 takeover
Farr Festival 2017 will be graced by a DJ set from Mister Saturday Night, the minds behind one of the best long-standing weekly parties in New York. Along with Eamon Harkin, Justin Carter is half of the Mister Saturday Night DJ duo. Since they began throwing parties in NYC in 2009, they have taken their events worldwide. Along with their colourful and groovy Mister Saturday Night parties, they throw daytime outdoor Mister Sunday parties, which have had great success in recent years, especially in London, where their summery laidback vibes proved a big hit. The music selection is usually an eclectic mix of disco, house, pop, funk and blues – basically, a lot of fun! Mister Saturday Night also runs a record label of the same name, established 2012. The label has released tracks from quality artists such as Anthony Naples, General Ludd, Nebraska, and Gunnar Haslam.
Carter and Harkin have also built their own venue in NYC called Nowadays, which is situated on the Brooklyn-Queens border. They built this space from the ground up after raising over $100,000 on Kickstarter, and opened their unique venue in the summer of 2015. On June 25th, they are celebrating their 250th Mister party ever, which will be taking place at the venue. To celebrate this milestone, they are releasing a Mister Saturday Night compilation called Mister Saturday Night: Then and Now. Marcellus Pittman, Falty DL, and ESB are just a few of the names featured on the 14-track release. The tracks span styles, scenes, and eras, capturing the sound Mister Saturday Night has developed since their inception. It brings together songs that have come to define the party, as well as some new additions. The compilation will be released on June 30th in mixed and unmixed versions, available on LP, CD, and digital formats.
