The 10th Argot pressing finds Eamon Harkin returning in full force after a 2 year studio hiatus. Originally from Ireland, Eamon relocated to New York where he made quite a name for himself as a producer with a handful releases on Throne Of Blood, Subway Series or Wurst and as a DJ by joining forces with Justin Carter under their Mister Saturday Night dynamic duo project.

For his celebrated comeback, Eamon prepares an energy-packed monster single that starts 'Back Down' with a slamming bass-heavy piece of dark techno madness, ready to wreck havoc amongst the most demanding of club heads. The breakdown unveils a seemingly more tender side, but don't be fooled by the soothing strings, or melancholic keys, as the madness quickly returns with added power and feeling to twist your mesmerised mind even more.

The flipside introduces a different 'Species Of Comedy', one that grows steadily from a set of stirring strings and metallic bells to a fully fledged hypnotic stomper employing in its mission an array of evoking strings, screaming melodies and driving beats. The outcome is a colourful, almost synesthetic experience that complements the title track in perfect harmony and beautfully rounds Eamon Harkin's icon return.
