Warm Up 2016: Week 8 Highlights

This weekend at Warm Up, we are excited to feature some of the best in American rap and club music. One of the most important names in Drill music, Chicago’s Lil Durk, has been revealed as this week’s live act. Fresh off the release of his second album, 2X, Lil Durk combines the heavy trap-influenced sonics of Drill with a deceptive pop sensibility. Our headliner is Philly Club innovator Swizzymack, an in-demand producer/DJ signed to Diplo’s Mad Decent imprint. Expect an energetic mix of uptempo drum workouts and frenetic sample chops in what’s sure to be one of the most fun sets of the summer.

We are also pleased to present an array of acts at the beginning of the day, including Baltimore Club veteran DJ Class, Baltimore MC and self-proclaimed “Queen of The Beat” TT the Artist, Newark’s “Booty Bounce King” DJ Jayhood, and Jersey Club godfather DJ Tameil.

In reverse order of appearance this Saturday, August 6:

Swizzymack / Mad Decent / Philadelphia, PA
Lil Durk (LIVE) / OTF + Def Jam / Chicago, IL
TT The Artist (LIVE) / Baltimore, MD
DJ Class / Baltimore, MD

In case you missed last week’s show, crowds danced through some afternoon showers to a polished set by UK House/Techno star Maya Jane Coles. Ohal and Palmbomen II enraptured the crowd with unique live analog sets, Joey Anderson spun a hypnotic mix of smooth techno, and Jay Daniel played a soulful set of Detroit grooves.

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.
