The blend of rap, grime, bop, and trap from last Saturday’s acts made for one of the wildest Warm Ups of the season! Joey LaBeija opened with a lively, Latin-infused dance set, Dark0 kicked off the day’s grime vibes, Sicko Mobb got the crowd bopping, rapper Tory Lanez brought more energy to the MoMA PS1 stage than we ever knew was possible, and DJ Slimzee brought out special guest Novelist—a true grime treat. Skepta gave a perfect performance in a pristine all-white outfit, ending with “Shut Down” on a stage filled with his friends. Baauer closed out the night with ‘90s throwbacks and trap bangers, carrying the dance party even further.

Last Saturday’s sold-out Warm Up featured a refreshingly diverse mix of high energy acts. Lotic’s beautifully chaotic club tracks got the crowd dancing early, and didn’t stop until the end of headliner Boys Noize’s set. In between, there was a rare and intimate live set from Lafawndah; happy, warped dance pop from PC Music’s digital maximalists A.G. Cook and Danny L Harle; genius house and techno from Ed Banger RecordsBusy P b2b Boston Bun; and hard-hitting electronic from Boys Noize, complete with a drop of acid-smiley-face beach balls.

Heavy bass and hip-hop from the Night Slugs crew (Sheen, Helix, and Bok Bok); club bangers and throwbacks from Blaqstarr; and raw, melodic raps from both Despot, and Corbin and Bobby Raps created the perfect fusion of electronic and hip-hop for last Saturday’s Warm Up Read more

Last Saturday’s Warm Up had a patriotic spirit complete with old-school dance beats, crowd surfing in a sea of red, white, and blue, and Nicky Siano’s “Return of Libby,” featuring Nicky himself in full Statue of Liberty garb. His reimagined constitution—allowing people the important rights of dancing and partying—seemed to take over the crowd, dancing right up to the start of the fireworks display in Long Island City.

Warm Up 2014 Finale: Week 10 Highlights

Warm Up 2014 has officially ended. The last day was quite the finale—there was a thunderstorm, two special guests, and a packed courtyard that danced for hours. Our secret headliner was Skrillex, who played after surprise guest ILoveMakonnen, Evian Christ, Lone (live), Sophie, and Doss. The Principals returned as our set designers.

Each Warm Up had a unique lineup and energy that kept everyone staying until the very end, begging the DJs for just one more song. We had performers from all over the globe, with some local favorites thrown into the mix as well. Thanks to everyone who worked on Warm Up and helped make it such a wonderful success.

Check out the slideshow, and we’ll see you next year!
