Warm Up 2016: Week 3 Highlights

This Saturday we are thrilled to host Theo Parrish, a pillar of Detroit’s house/techno scene for over 20 years. Before Theo plays, we are very excited to hear: Detroit’s mysterious techno master DJ Stingray, the genre-bending sounds of Cologne-based DJ/producer Lena Willikens, and a set from New York-based Japanese writer/artist/DJ Kiki Kudo.

Warm Up 2016: Week 2 Highlights

Last week, we were lucky to host a disco-heavy dance party! After DJ Guiddo and Kento Slash Demon opened the show, we had the pleasure of witnessing the genius of Danny Krivit, Nancy Whang’s lively and ecclectic set, and a riveting live performance by MHD. Read more

A cherubic, blond-haired boy dressed in Quaker clothing looking straight at the camera, his blank expression conveying a wisdom beyond his years. Read more

I know sculptures can’t dance, but Raúl de Nieves’s Day(Ves) of Wonder looks like it might bust a move any minute. The three-foot piece—which depicts a humanoid figure in mid-groove, decked out in rainbow-colored platform boots, with swaying arms, cocked hips, and a sprawling, Medusa-like head—pulses with energy.

Setting the Stage: Fort Makers at Warm Up 2015

The courtyard at MoMA PS1 is empty, the museum has just closed, and the last visitors have trickled out. Curiously, there’s a lone stool in the middle of the Warm Up dance floor. On it, there’s an iPhone balanced precariously against a pen, acting like an impromptu tripod. This MacGyver-esque contraption has been set up to capture the unveiling of painter Naomi Clark’s latest work unfurling down the façade of the building, her largest painting to date and one of the last stage designs of this summer’s Warm Up music series.

Last Saturday’s Warm Up was fueled by explosive live acts and fun DJ sets from a mix of artists that perfectly captured end-of-summer vibes. False Witness and Murlo both played DJ sets that got the crowd riled up with a bit of club, dancehall, and R&B. DJ Windows 98 played the first live set of the day, complete with a high-energy crew of Haitian drummers, followed by a live performance from D∆WN, who delivered everything from pop to R&B in an elaborate all-white costume, with the support of two talented backup dancers. Fade to Mind’s Kingdom was up next with a flashy club set, and Matias Aguayo headlined the night with a live set filled with Latin flair, that was just as rich musically as it was packed with his impressive dance moves.

We’re both sad and ecstatic about the last Warm Up of the season coming up this Saturday! We can’t wait to see you in the MoMA PS1 courtyard for performances from Dan Bodan featuring Draveng, EGYPTRIXX, Clark, Vince Staples, Derrick May, and additional artists to be announced!

Last Saturday was all about chill, breezy house vibes in the MoMA PS1 courtyard—the idyllic Warm Up atmosphere. Laraaji began by introducing the crowd to his laughter meditation and sound immersion with delicate, breezy music from soothing instruments like wind chimes and a converted zither played like a drum. The Mood Hut collective then took over with a b2b set from Hashman Deejay and Pender Street Steppers, complete with the label’s definitive woozy, summery house music. Read more

Last Saturday’s Warm Up saw techno and dance music meet percussion with some of the most high-energy acts to hit the MoMA PS1 stage this summer. French Fries and Bambounou went b2b to start the day, bouncing different house and dance tracks off one another with their strong musical chemistry. Vessel’s live set of organic techno sounds then cast a darker atmosphere over the crowd. Read more

Serious techno vibes and unusual, intriguing rhythms filled last Saturday’s Warm Up. Rabit cast an air of darkness over the MoMA PS1 courtyard with beats typically reserved for late at night, making for an exciting daytime setting. The party continued with a nighttime feel while the sun shone bright over the crowd as they danced to a live set from Dorian Concept, followed by an infectious first ever performance from footwork producer Jlin, and a more upbeat DJ set from Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs.
