Warm Up 2013: High-Energy Beats Continue

Last Saturday crowds danced their way into the second half of this summers Warm Up series with the help of some stellar musicians. Brooklyn’s Rizzla kicked off the day with high-energy beats that had everyone dancing from the start. Young NYC natives Ratking were up next with a live performance, delivering a new wave of hip-hop. One of the top dancehall producers Dre Skull then took over, followed by Scotland’s Jackmaster. Both kept the energy as high as ever. To top it off, Marcellus Pittman closed with a set that channeled his roots in the Detroit dance music scene. This week’s line up is sure to continue this streak of high-energy music and dancing.

DJ Dodger Stadium, the Los Angeles—based duo of Jerome LOL and Samo Sound Boy, will start the day off with their fresh, upbeat house-infused dance tracks. The pair launched their label Body High in 2011, and since then have been putting out some of the most hard-to-define dance music out there. Samo Sound Boy strives to create tracks for people to dance in club settings, while keeping it minimal and pared down. Jerome LOL, former half of LOL Boys, brings his love of electronic, pop, and hip-hop music to his sound. He’s also become known for his impressive video production, which references the internet’s early days. Be sure to check out this super-duo’s Fader Mix in anticipation for their Warm Up debut.

Hyetal, hailing from Bristol, UK, will follow with his heavy, melodic, outer space sounding music style. This past May, Hyetal released Modern Worship on True Panther Sounds.

Next up, Octave One will perform live. Coming from Detroit, MI, this electronic dance music group, made up of brothers Lenny Burden and Lawrence Burden (along with rotating brothers Lynell, Lorne, and Lance), will display their underground techno style. A second-generation Detroit Techno group, Octave One first made their big splash in the music world in the 1990s, and have been touring the world ever since. Aside from live performances, the brothers run the record label, 430 West Records, which continues to release innovative dance music.

Finishing up this day jam packed with an eclectic mix of dance and house musicians is Julio Bashmore of Bristol, UK. The futuristic, high-energy sounds and warped house style of Bashmore’s music is what allowed him to burst on to the scene in late 2009 with a single on Dirtybird Records. Bashmore and Hyetal, who will both play at Warm Up this weekend, have teamed up multiple times in the past few years making music under the name Velour. He has also launched his own label, Broadwalk Records. Julio Bashmore will deliver an exhilarating set to close out this week’s Warm Up. While the temperatures seem to be cooling off in the city, this week’s musicians will no doubt be heating things up.

Be sure to check out the MoMA PS1 galleries before they close at 6:00 p.m. Get ready for your ears and eyes to be wowed!

This summer, week by week, artist by artist, Warm Up continues to outdo itself—and last weekend was no exception. It saw a DJ set from Brooklyn’s own Obey City; Fade to Mind Records’  vocalist, Kelela, performing a live set and singing with DJ L-VIS 1990 (who also turned in a stellar DJ set). Read more
