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

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.

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!
